Bathroom Tile Installation
What about Bathroom Tile Installation Atlanta?
Bathroom tile installation is one of the most common, most requested, most needed and often most complicated of tile installation projects.
Bathrooms are such a vital part of any home or business, getting tremendous amounts of use and the heaviest exposure to water. Even before discussing the visual design elements and large list of options, it’s necessary to address the vital importance of water proofing in the design and implementation of a proper bathroom tile installation. Check out our page on shower tile installation Atlanta as that’s the place where the most water can do the most damage if not done properly.
Bathroom Tile Installation is More Complicated
A bathroom tile installation project can include everything from floor tile to wall tile and often uses multiple types and sizes of tile all in the one room. Because a bathroom is framed out of wood and can get particularly wet, the floor and walls are typically covered with 1/4-1/2″ cement board prior to installing the tile itself. In the case of the shower, the floor gets a rubber membrane and shower pan, while the walls get coated with a paint on water proofing membrane.
Before even starting a bathroom tile installation project, it’s usually first requires to remove the toilet and sometimes the sink. Many times, the existing tile then needs to be removed and hauled away before the new project can start in earnest. Sometimes the work and expense can be minimized by carefully removing the existing tile and just replacing it, but more often than not on bathrooms older than 10 years, the tiles are so bonded with the cement or thin-set below, that it all just has to come out.
Framing, Plumbing & Electrical Trades Often Involved
After demo, the next step can often be framing up new walls or a shower seat, moving the plumbing around to relocate the fixtures or even adding a GFCI electrical outlet at the sink? This involvement with other construction trades can sometimes take a little bathroom remodel or tile job and turn it into a much more involved project than expected.
