Wood look tile is a little more challenging to install and not an easy do-it-yourself installation. This is one reason why it’s important to choose a wood tile installer in the Hilton Head area that has the experience you need to have a perfect floor.
How Is Wood Tile Installed?
The hardest part in the wood look journey is installation. To correctly align and secure these tiles is not an easy feat. First and foremost, the subfloor must be level and even. Even a slightly uneven subfloor can lead to a drastically uneven final product.
Next, the crew must know the tile layout before the project is even started. The goal of this project is to imitate the natural product, and that takes a careful attention to detail. Based of the way these tiles are designed, each row has to be spaced appropriately to avoid any unwanted lippage.
And last, but not least, is grout. This is the most time consuming process, it might take several days and is almost impossible to perform unless you are familiar with the proper process.
Where To Use Wood Look Tile?
Wood look tile initially became popular as a way to achieve the hardwood aesthetic and feel in high moisture areas like bathrooms, where wood usually is avoided due to potential issues of water damage, cupping and warping, and high wear.
However, many owners are taking advantage of this tile’s stylish durability and are using it as the primary flooring material around the house. Changing to wood look tile is perfect when you are planning a renovation or re-doing your floors.
