Natural Stone Installation

Posted on December 29, 2014 at 9:15 AM

I have been doing natural stone installations for over two decades now. 

Shower leakage

Posted on December 29, 2014 at 2:15 AM

Most showers are improperly done. Using the wrong materials is the primary factor that leads to water leakage, mold and other unexpected things. Sooner or later it will need to be fixed. Therefore, it is important to use the right materials when building up a shower instead of going the cheap way/cutting corners. Basically, if you have a well built shower you can help prevent unpleasant surprises in the future.

Subflooring

Posted on December 29, 2014 at 2:00 AM

I always use and recommend the use of any type of subflooring prior to tiling. However, it is unacceptable to lay tiles onto plywood. One of the best and most affordable subflooring on the market would be the Dural Durabase, Schluter  DITRA Matt etc... 

Narrow grout joints

When it comes to installation, I treat the porcelain just like the raw edge stone by keeping the grout joint at 1/16''. It looks considerably more elegant and professional.

Bullnose fabrication

We fabricate our own bullnose, from corner shower shelves to niches, thresholds, windowsills, ledges etc...

Re-grouting

The grout restoration meaning:  raking the grout all the way through, clean and vacuum the joints prior to re-grouting,  seal it a few times to prevent any future stains and water penetration.
