|FLOOR TILE INSTALLATION:
Denver flooring for interior or exterior tile installation
starts with the proper floor underlayment to meet the
jobsite requirements as set forth in ANSI tile standards.
In the example below the sub floor installation was 3/4
inch t&g plywood. Schluter/Ditra was chosen as the
underlayment for it's low profile 1/8th inch to compensate
for the height of the tile and carpet to be installed.
Since this floor tile installation is to be in a master
bathroom where water is present Ditra is a good choice.
Not only does it serve as an underlayment but also as a
crack isolation membrane and water resistant moisture
barrier an excellent choice for this bathroom remodel.

TILE INSTALLATION DESIGN:
One of the keys to a professional tile installation is the
layout. It is vital to know where your layout is going.
The size of the cuts and where to place them is the
number one concern for the professional tile contractor,
Interior Designer and the Homeowner.
There are several ways in determining where the cuts
should go and much depends on the size of the tile and
the configuration of the room.
In this example our tile setter is dry setting the tile in
place. The tile being set is an Italian 18x18 porcelain tile
and by laying the tile out in this fashion the tile installer
can determine what size cuts are needed and where to
place them for the most appealing look.
The tile cuts will be made using this method and laying
tile in thinset will not take place until all the cuts are made.
When it comes to floors, keep it flat!
READY FOR GROUT
For the best results in
grouting tile floors
read the directions
listed on the thinset

Depending on the
underlayment, type of
tile installed and
adequate curing time is
essential for the
longest lasting results
desired, namely grout
that will not crack or
Not all tile and grout
needs to be sealed, it
depends on the
recommendation of the
manufacturers. In this
case the porcelain tile
doesn't need to be
sealed but the grout
does. Knowing what
grout sealer to use
comes with 31 years of
experience and the
results of countless
hours of installations

This Italian porcelain floor tile was installed in a straight course pattern. Enhanced with a metallic
finish on the surface of the tile it glimmers when light reflects onto it.
Porcelain tile was part of the installation for the wainscot and shower walls. The shower floor is a 2x2
slate tile with a Schluter/Kerdi drain and shower pan waterproofing system.
The floor underlayment used for this flooring installation is Hardi tile backer board which is thinset to
the sub-floor and screwed into placement before the porcelain tile is installed.
The tile grout used for this project is Custom's Sure Color Prism grout. Denver flooring preferred grout.
Floor maintenance on this and most porcelain floor tiles is quite easy. Simply use a mild dish soap with
cool water and rinse. There is no need to seal the porcelain although sealing the grout is a good idea.
Porcelain flooring is leading the kitchen and bathroom remodeling industry as the choice for lasting
beauty in kitchens, bathrooms and interiors. Porcelain Flooring offers strength, beauty and versatility
