Bathroom Tile Installation by Sacramento Handyman

Bathroom Tile Installation

Tile flooring provides natural moisture resistance and is often a cheaper option for flooring, other flooring options including carpet or wood. Once you've noticed that your bathroom tile needs a bit of work, you must first decide how much work is necessary. How many tiles are in disrepair? Are they do out of place that you need entirely new tile? If so, should you lay down new tile on top of old or re-do the floor completely? Because tiling provides several benefits for any home, regardless of whether it is laid in the bathroom or kitchen, it is essential to understand how large of a project for tile repair you'll be undergoing.

For a project that means keeping the old tile in place, preparation will not be difficult. If the old tiles were installed well – by yourself or a professional – you would not need to uncover the floor. A second layer can be installed just fine with this even footing but remember that you will be raising the level of the floor by adding a second level of tile. Tap each tile with a piece of wood; if you hear a hollow sound, the tile is loose. Remove any loose tile and reattach with a thin-set. As well, use a level to rule out any high spots on the floor. Of course, clean any grout in the tile, as well as sweep and vacuum to ensure that the floor is clean underneath. Mop if necessary.

However, if you need to remove flooring in your bathroom, there is much more preparation and time involved. Do not accomplish this step on your own if you are not comfortable doing so or do not have the expertise for such a project. You may be able to rip tile up on your own, but tile installation can be costly, so you'll want to make sure that you do it right the first time – even if that means spending more to call in the experts.
