What to expect when getting tile installed
Although it is possible to install tile as a DIY project, we recommend hiring a professional installer to do the work. Tile installations can be labor intensive and require several specialized tools to properly complete the installation. A tile installation can be messy and sometimes a lengthy process. Knowing what to expect during your tile installation will make the entire process go faster and eliminate any surprises. Depending on the scope of your project, we may have a licensed installer visit your job site to properly assess all the variables of both the structural requirements and design elements of your vision.

After tile installation
It's important to note that your tile installation is not truly done until the tile has had time to cure, which usually takes at least 48 hours after your installation team leaves. Any bathroom or kitchen installations need to remain completely moisture free for this period to allow the grout and mortar to fully dry.
