What to

Tile requires very particular sub-floor preparation. Frequently, a water-resistant backer-board is affixed to the subfloor, providing a secure, stable surface for tile installation.

As with all other forms of floor covering offered by Hadinger Flooring, we have well-trained, skilled and experienced installers for your project. You can rely on them to produce a beautiful finished job, and to be careful and respectful of your home and property in the process.

before your tile installation

As with any flooring installation, you’ll need to clear the room of furniture and other items before your new tile floor is installed. It may be necessary to remove baseboards and molding in advance; be sure to ask your installer about this. For this reason, it’s important that you talk to an installation professional about your flooring substrate before installation. Depending on your subfloor, you may need an underlayment laid before the tile is put in place.

A pre-installation walk-through with your tile installer will help ensure that you are prepared for the big day. The matters of removal and disposal of old flooring, trim, sub-floor preparation, and door clearance can be addressed during the walk-through.


During Your Tile Installation

On installation day, you should plan to be home. Expect a lot of noise and the potential for some above average dust. 

You should have the room completely clear of furniture, according to your discussion with the installer ahead of time. Plan to provide ventilation for the new floor area, post-installation, to help clear related odors and dust. Be sure to clear a path for the installation team to enter and exit the home throughout the day, and make sure children and pets are not in the work area. Determine the closest and most convenient electrical power outlets in and near the rooms where the tile flooring is being installed.


After Your Ceramic Installation

New tile projects need time to cure and solidify. Typically, floors should not be walked on for at least 48 hours after the tiles are laid; similarly, ceramic tile shower stalls and counters should remain completely moisture free for a couple of days, so the grout can completely dry. There will likely be dust and particles left over from the installation. To ensure that all dust leaves the room, make sure to open windows, turn on fans and properly ventilate the room for the next 48 to 72 hours after installation.
