The installation of marble floor tiles will be coming associated with a number of some very common mistakes. We are going to highlight some of these so that we can have a proactive approach towards them with the assignment of tile installation.
As you set out for the task of tiling your floors, the most common mistake a lot of people will often make is the failure to prep the surface appropriately. The prepping will involve the assessment of the surface of the floor upon which the tiles are to be installed to ensure that it is leveled well enough to lay the carpets on. The correction of the mistake which will result when the surface is not leveled fairly enough will be too much of a cost for it will essentially demand the removal of the tiles to correct the resulting slope. Closely associated with prepping is the step for cleaning the surface prior to the installation of the tiles. The surface will obviously attract dust and dirt as long as it has been left exposed. You will have some irritating and disturbing sounds on your tiles when you have them installed on a surface which was not properly cleaned before their installation.
The other mistake you must watch out for as you lay tiles is not laying the tiles correctly. Tiles generally add a lot of aesthetic value to the house and as such an experience that will destroy the aesthetics like having a disproportionate layout of the tiles on your floor will not be a welcome. Try it out first by doing a dry run on the floor to see how it works out without using adhesive if you happen to be without much experience in tile installation.
Ensure that you have the tiles cut properly and with the right tools and measurements to ensure that you avoid the other pitfall common with many tile installers of getting wrong cuts and as such hiking the costs.
