BATHROOM TILING

 When you're comparing quotations, ensure that you're comparing apples to apples. Our bathrooms are tiled to perfection, in accordance with the Australian standards. Don't get caught out by unlicensed operators or tilers who dot-fix tiles. Dot fixing is the installation of tiles with dabs of glue, and this will leave voids behind the tiles that lead to grout coming loose,cracking and allow water to travel behind the cavity, leading to tiling failure.

Our bathroom tiling process is a complete system to provide you an everlasting and leak-free bathroom. To have something that will last a lifetime, it must be done correctly the first time – by professionals like us. Call the bathroom tiling experts today!

 

BATHROOM TILING - HOW WE PUT TOGETHER YOUR DREAM BATHROOM

Step 1:  Sand cement floor screeding. *10mm step down in shower. Recommended for frame less shower screen installations.

Step 2: Waterproofing - Installation of bond-breaker and two coats of highly flexible waterproofing membrane. (Includes certificate of compliance of wet area treatment)

Step 3: Floor tiling - High strength, flexible Non Slump, polymer fortified cement-based  tile adhesive that has been specially formulated with mastic type properties   * We lay wall tiles on top of floor tiles. This decreases the chances of the waterproofing membrane getting damage during wall tile installation and water seeping through the gap from movement at the wall and floor junction.

Step 4: Wall tiling - High strength, flexible Non Slump, polymer fortified cement-based  tile adhesive that has been specially formulated with mastic type properties.  *Prior to wall tiling, the perimeter of the room is filled with highly flexible silicone.

Step 5: Grout with polymer modified, flexible, compressible grout.

Step 6: Silicone with high-performance acetoxy cure silicone sealant at internal corners, wall & floor junctions, architraves, niches and fittings. 

*Most of our competitors will use grout instead of silicone which is the major cause in water damage from grout cracking.

Step 7: Light polish and cleaning of tiles
