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.
