Our Tile Work is Exquisite!
Square One is proud to offer you exquisite, high-quality tile work.
We generally use stain resistant epoxy grout and doesn't require sealing, and has very little overall maintenance. A lower priced alternative is Laticrete™ Permacolor Grout. Per http://www.laticrete.com/portals/0/datasheets/ds2500.pdf "LATICRETE PermaColor Grout is a high performance , fast setting grout that provides a grout joint that is dense and hard. LATICRETE PermaColor Grout is color consistent."
Our shower and tub surrounds are all waterproofed with industry-leading products.
Depending upon site conditions, we may choose flooring underlayment products from Schluter Systems or Noble Company to isolate the tile installation from the floor below. This ensures the integrity of the tile installation and protects against cracking damage. We also provide custom mud floor & wall installations when conditions require this solution.
All tile has a different level of porosity and therefore a different rate of absorption.
Absorption rate from highest to lowest is as follows:
- Quarry tile (highly porous; very absorbent)
- Pavers or handmade tile
- Ceramic and stone
- Porcelain tiles (nearly waterproof)
Square One's shower and/or tub installations are guaranteed to be completely waterproof --- and BEFORE tile is installed. This makes our tile installations near-perfect!
