This past Summer JD Tile completed a bathroom renovation in a farmhouse on the outskirts of Annville, to include a new tile shower and double sink vanity remodel. The existing shower was a fiberglass unit in the corner coming out about 3 ft. JD Tile suggested changing the footprint of the shower to make it bigger, frame and install 2 half walls to leave light in and have a niche on the inside of each half wall for a clean look. Subway tile was the choice of tile, traditional style for a farmhouse. Joints were installed tight at 1/16″. Granite was used for the curb top, half wall tops, and the new countertop for the double bowl vanity to replace the single. All the granite was fabricated by Lesher Marble and Granite. Shower glass by H2 of Lancaster. Double bowl vanity complete with subway tile splash. Customer chose to keep the wood floor vs tile. As always JD Tile used the best materials available to give the customer a high quality tile installation 100% waterproof shower.
This job entailed taking out the existing fiberglass shower unit. Barrier free shower with a Noble linear drain. The porcelain tile used was by the manufacturers Crossville and Oceanside Glass. The tiles used on the floor and wall were Boxcar 12X36’s. These tiles were but down to 12X18″ for the floor. the feature band is Disco Inferno by Oceanside Glass. The granite elements fabricated by JD Tile are Expresso. The porcelain 12X36’s were bullnosed to avoid using a profile or small thin piece out at the termination point. NuHeat cables were installed in the floor, 220 baseboard heat was removed and the radiant NuHeat will now be the source for the room. Shower includes Delta trim with a Rain Shower addition. Grout is Dusty Grey SpectraLock epoxy. Shower ceiling is Crossville Glass Blox.
Quartz recycling project patio deck in Annville, PA. Using quartz remnants from a fabrication shop, these remnants were cut down into 12X16″ tiles, using first a grinder with a tubo blade and on the wet saw. Cutting them down is a slow process as quartz is a very dense material which makes it easy for cleaning and removing stains, much easier than granite. These remnants were picked up and cut down into a specific size versus being thrown into a landfill. 3″ mud bed was installed first, followed by the quartz tile installation. Thickness is same as countertops, 3 cm or 3/4″. The previously polished sides were roughed up using a special cup wheel for a good bond. The top of the quartz was roughed up using a grinder to have good traction for walking on, then the surface was enhanced to bring out the color and lastly sealed. Hydro Ban was put down on the surface of the mortar bed to protect the bed and the tiles were grouted with SpectraLock Epoxy grout since this an outdoor project. I have secured many more remnants quartz and granite so look for more unique tile/slab projects from JD Tile.
