If you’ve never undertaken a retiling project beforehand, knowing what to expect can give you an idea of how to adequately prepare for the process. Tile installations differ from other remodel solutions because of the versatility involved with their application.
Some of the primary stages involved with a retiling project include:
Clearing the Area
The first step with any tile or retiling process is clearing the space involved with the project. If you’re dealing with a wall installation, you can simply move any bulky items to the middle of the room or over to a side that’s not involved with the process. When working on a flooring installation, you might have no choice but to remove everything from the room involved.
Removing the Old Tiles
You’ll need to remove the old tiles before you can integrate the new fixtures. In most cases, this is a simple task if the initial installation was done properly and it shouldn’t take too long to complete. If the original work was conducted amateurishly, things might get a little bit messier as you might need to take a more bulldozing approach.
Installing the New Tiles
The last stage involves preparing the surface for the new tiles and conducting the installation. It’s advisable to start from the middle and work your way outwards to ensure uniformity with the setting. If you’re looking for quality tiling solutions, call us today!
