Customer remembered JD Tile from previous work 10 years ago. He tiled a stove base and entryway previously for customer. The current job was to remove the vinyl sheeting and install tile by Crossville, Americana series from Garden State Tile in Lancaster. The dark series went on the floor and lighter color for the backsplash. These tiles are V4 or varied to 4 shades. Varied shading is very popular these days. The new tile was installed to the height of the adjoining hardwood floor in the breakfast area. The proper substrate had to be installed to achieve this. Schluter Ditra was the choice in this situation. The dishwasher and stove were unhooked and removed from the room in order to tile the flooring underneath. After the floor was finished appliance were installed. Epoxy SpectraLock grout was used on the floor for longevity.
