Getting Started or Ready to Install your Floor?
Once your floor has cured, you can install your transition pieces to hide your expansion spacing at doorways as well as transition to other types of flooring. The following transition pieces can be used:
- Bullnose Tile – The rounded edge provides a smooth transition to similar height floors.
- T-Molding – For similar height floors (such as hardwood).
- Reducer Strip – For lower height floors (such as vinyl).
- End Molding/Square Nose/Universal Edge – For carpet, similar height floors or outside threshold transitions; also used around brickwork.
Tile transitions are either glued to the subfloor with a quality adhesive or secured using trim tracks.
Install all wall base, shoe base and quarter round to hide the expansion spacing around the perimeter of the room.
Seal The Floor
Sealing helps protect the grout as well as prevent stains, mildew and mold. Sealing is critical for tile or stone installed in wet areas such a bathrooms, kitchens or outdoors. Always follow your tile manufacturer´s recommendations when choosing a sealant.
