Lancaster Fireplace Ledger Stone Facelift

12X12 sheets of stone ledger mosaics were chosen by the customer to give this fireplace an updated look. This fireplace has been converted to gas, cement board was installed over the existing brick. Stone ledger panels have become popular and there is no grouting. The sheets of stone are installed tight together. A stone facing alleviates having a stone mason and saves on cost but an elegant facelift is the outcome! Call JD Tile at 717-821-5009 for your tile installation needs.

Crossville Laminam Tile Panel Tile Installation Red Rose Credit Union

Laminam Installation completed

JD Tile recently teamed up with All Set Tile to install Laminam, Crossville’s offering for thin tile porcelain. This was installed on the walls of a credit union. Elegance and the durability of porcelain but only adding an additional 1/8″ to the sheetrock. This particular tile is the new animal in the tile industry presenting new challenges to the tile mechanic. In recent years large format tile keeps coming out, 18″ and 12X24″ are now considered the norm. The thin tile is over 3 ft by approx 10 ft. in length. Many new challenges come about, how to cut it, transport it, install it, thinset it, etc. JD Tile attended the Crossville Tile training down in Tennessee at the plant back in August to get qualified on their product, Laminam. This project included 19 panels in total installed on the walls with many cutouts for outlets. The installation we a major success and we look forward to new products with this thin tile 1/8″ thick in this case. This material in a thicker material can also be used for floors but the substrate it required to be much more flat for a successful installation.
