Tile Fail Grout Error

Tile installations gone wrong!

Installing your new tile can be quite the task. It is usually easiest to turn to a trusted professional to ensure proper installation. Here are some of the mistakes you will want to avoid!

So Close, Yet So Far!

Does this drive you crazy? One minor error can make all the difference, so be sure to install your tile the right way, with a professional you can trust. Let this be a reminder for proper, careful, installation.

Which One Doesn't Belong?

As Sesame Street quotes "One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn't belong." Can you spot the odd tile out?

I Thought You Measured?

Measure twice, cut once! You don't want to end up with a missing piece to the puzzle. Be sure you have double checked your measurements before purchasing or installing tile.

Matching Mania

If you look closely, you can see that this shower installation is comprised of two different batches of tile. The biggest issue with big box store tile purchases is shading and sizing differences. Realizing that the next box of tile doesn't match the tile you just installed is never fun. Ensure you don't face this problem when you turn to our tile experts.

Grout Mishaps

Grouting can be messy and several things can go wrong when finishing your tile job. Adding too much water, wiping the grout too soon, or using too much can cause unexpected outcomes.
