Why choose Yonkers Tile Service?
Precise Tile Cutting
We cut tiles using diamond wet saw, which guarantees precise cuts. Applying even, slow pressure makes sure that the cut is correct. These cuts assist in ensuring tiles get sized properly to fall in place perfectly.
Refraining from hiring experts can be a mistake that can cost dearly. Imagine paying for a bathroom tiling and then being disappointed after the tiles begin to crack shortly after! If the materials used are not of highest quality, then new damage is highly possible - and even likely. Hiring a professional brand like Yonkers Tile Service will save you the hassle and headache of re-tiling.
Our group of professionals knows all of the nuances concerning grout. No one should allow tiles to get tainted by a substandard grout job. Bright, clean grout lines will ensure the tiles appear brand new, whether it's in the kitchen or bathroom.
Also, with grout, color plays a central role. A pop of fabric color here, a splash of paint color there, and the whole room can look completely new. Right now, colored grout is becoming increasingly trendy.
What exactly is grout?
Grout is tint, sand, cement, and water. It is a substance necessary for filling joints and setting tile.
Grout is a vital element of all tiled surfaces, and individuals realize this fact when it starts to discolor, stain, and get dirty.
In this day and age, grout is turning into a design component on its own. Grout can contrast the tile color, assisting in highlighting non-traditional tile patterns, like hexagons.
Recently, grout experts are integrating fluorescent grout into a unique design. Though design is the main selling point, these newly colored grout products are also stain-resistant.
Gone are the days when grout was only an ordinary substance tasked with holding tiles together. Now, grout isn't just limited as a necessary substance to tiling. There is a variety of grout in the industry (from flourescent, to non-toxic, to "designer"), and we've seen different grout being utilized in every room in the house.
Grout comes in several colors. Monochromatic grout typically goes well with numerous tile colors. For instance, most people prefer white, grey, or black grout with a white tile.
However, nowadays, tiles can vary in colors. Grey, tan, brown, blue, black, cream, beige, and white are all common tile colors that are used to enhance a room's décor.
Dyes can be used to color grout after the installation, and not a bad option if the grout is reliable and stable. With already existing grout, it's possible to transform it into a darker or lighter color.
Grout Color Sealers
Those who have chosen a grout color and decide to change their minds can use a grout colorant and paint the grout. The popularity of grout colorant is two-fold: durability and the ability to change the color of pre-existing grout. Just keep in mind that grout colorant is essentially a form of paint, which does not provide sealing protection.
If a client wants tiles on a surface where moisture is prevalent, like a kitchen or shower / bath, then we recommend backerboard installation. A backboard is a waterproof, stiff board which protects against moisture. This helps prevent rotting and molding when the tiles get wet.
While grout fills the area between tiles, caulk fills the area between tiles and other objects, like sinks or bathtubs. Caulk is used as a waterproof sealant. Though caulk seems like it could be a simple DIY project, messy caulk lines are often the result of inexperience. We would recommend leaving caulking to experts!
