The floor is one of the most important finishes of a project, because being realistic, you are choosing it with the idea of not changing it again for a long time, due to all the complications that this can mean in the future.
It is for this reason that its selection is very important, vinyl flooring dubai and products that are of quality should be chosen and that comply not only with the technical requirements of the project, but also with your requirements for color, finish and aesthetics since it will be the floor that provides that base canvas for whatever you want to convey in each space then with its decoration.
That is why to install a ceramic or porcelain floor the following advice is given you from an expert.
Review of materials
- Review of the material to be installed if it is porcelain or ceramic. Check that their boxes indicate that all the material is the same gauge, shade, grade or quality. This is because when the floor is produced, it is classified into lots under those parameters, so you must make sure that the floor you bought has the same parameters so that there are no variations in it that affect the installation of flooring and final result.
- Location of cracks or expansion joints -cold cuts-etc. It is very important to know that if the product is installed over cracks or expansion joints in the ground, these sooner or later will break the product and come to the surface reflecting the same crack or joint that exists under the product.
- Cleaning the surface. Many times, the floor where the product will be installed is contaminated with typical construction residues such as dust, paste and paint, among others, which can affect the effectiveness of the adhesive material.
Finally, once the surface is ready and the floor placement defined, the installer can start with the installation for which the appropriate mortar and set must be used, as well as use the appropriate tools for the proper installation of the floor.
The installer must always place glue material both on the piece and on the floor, making sure to cover 100% of the piece as it is very important that all edges and corners are well supported to prevent the product from breaking in the future.
The installer must also ensure that the glue material is placed in an orderly manner, with all the grooves in the same direction, to facilitate the exit of any air bubbles that may have been “trapped” between the glue material of the piece and ground. It is recommended that installers can use rubber trowels instead of rubber hammers, as they have a greater coverage area and their blow is not as punctual, which benefits the installation.
