Well there are many benefits for choosing tiles over other surface finishes for your home. No one wants to spend countless hours polishing hardwood floors, spot treating carpets, or dealing with the hassle of replacing easily damaged vinyl. The flooring option of today needs to facilitate a dynamic lifestyle rather than hinder it.
There are five reasons you should tile:
On top of advantages in functionality and durability, tiles are extremely cost-effective over their lifespan. It is critical to think about how long materials will last and the cost of maintenance for your flooring, as well as initial raw material and installation costs.
Certain floor coverings may have lower initial costs but the maintenance involved costs more over time until full replacement is needed.
Along with our own market research, and an independent cost analysis by the Tile Council of North America, we believe tiles are the most cost-effective flooring material available. See below comparison.
These are the 5 most important things to know before you get your project tiled.
Waterproofing is vital for your home, particularly areas of high moisture. You must ensure that your home is adequately waterproofed to prevent water ingress into its structure. This includes areas such as the foundations, framing, floors, walls, roofs and basements.
Water that escapes from a shower, bath or basin can remain unnoticed for long periods of time. This makes repairing the damage very serious and costly.
You must waterproof areas of your home that are subject to frequent and heavy wetting. For example, showers (including open shower surrounds) and splash areas around baths and basins. This is because it are these areas that are exposed to the most amount of moisture.
It is important to waterproof areas of regular intermittent wetting, such as walls behind baths, basins and tubs, which are also areas of high moisture. It is also important that you consider tiled entries where people will enter the house during periods of heavy rain.
Don’t be tempted to accept a quick and cheap waterproof job because if it is done wrong, the costs to you will be unforgiving.At tiling.co.nz we are certified waterproofing agents and use only the best waterproofing products and processes. Our practice has been signed off by product suppliers to confirm that our waterproof application is installed as per their specification.
