HOW LONG DOES INSTALLATION USUALLY TAKE?
As a rule of thumb, it takes 4 hours to tile a 40 sq foot space. Of course, this timeline can be impacted by the size of the tile you choose, the amount of grouting required, and the complexity of any tile designs.
Additionally, after your tile flooring installation is complete, it is highly recommended that you do not walk on your new tile for at least 12 hours. This gives your tile enough time to properly dry and adhere to your subflooring.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PREPARING YOUR SUBFLOOR FOR TILE INSTALLATION
Tile flooring requires a surface that will not bend, contract or warp. Thus, it is incredibly important that homeowners know what type of subflooring they have, and how it will impact their project.
When laying tile on concrete, for example, all cracks and uneven areas must be levelled and filled before the tile flooring installation can begin. If the tile is being laid on plywood, the plywood should be 1 1/8″ thick when combined with the subfloor.

Ceramic and porcelain floor tiles are the most common ones. Ceramic is a term used to cover a range of clay based products while porcelain is a specific type of ceramic. However, there are porcelain and non-porcelain ceramics. Porcelain is made from porcelain clay fired at an extremely high temperature. It is very strong and has a water absorption rate below 0.5%. Non-porcelain ceramic is made from red and white clay and is fired at a lower temperature. It is also not as durable or moisture resistant as porcelain.
At freedom flooring, the options are almost unlimited. Tile flooring can be produced in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and designs. It comes in many different styles including rustic, contemporary, traditional, and so on. Ceramic tile floors can also mimic the appearance of natural stone or wood. Contact us to find your fit today!
