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.

This project was for some good friends I met while in the service. We removed the carpet and installed porcelain 18″ slate finish tiles, square pattern. Cracks in floor were coated with Laticrete mesh and blue liquid to isolate them. Tile was set with Laticrete 253, grouted with Laticrete Permacolor one of the new colors Dusty Grey. 600 sq. ft. Schluter transition profiles were used at doorways to meet carpet. Yes that is a Boston Terrior in the picture, his name is Leo! He kept me entertained while I was working on the tile installation, and did not move any of the tiles around! He was my buddy while I was working. Our next project in their home will be the kitchen floor and bathroom floors.
