Also called a “floating floor,” laminate can be installed directly over your existing plywood or subfloor or any other hard-surface floor, such as hardwood, concrete or linoleum. There is very little waste when using this flooring, unlike hardwood, laminate planks have no defects or imperfections.

Marble Mosiacs Tile-Don Of All Trades

Handy Tip Number 1

Be sure to wear safety glasses because there is going to be a lot of broken tile bits flying everywhere.

Marble Tile Mosiacs-Don Of All Trades

We started by removing the baseboard, sink and toilet. We then proceeded  to remove the porcelain tile on the floor. We chose to start in one corner and worked our way across the floor. The original  diamond lath that was under the tile was also removed and we  and continued right down to the sub floor.

Marble Mosaics Tile-Don Of All Trades

Marble Mosaics Tile-Don Of All Trades

We began the rebuild by screwing down the chipboard  and installing diamond lath and stapled it to the sub-floor. Next,  a scratch coat mortar was applied  to the diamond lath making sure that the end result was a base that was as level as possible.

Handy Tip Number 2

If you don’t have the skill set to apply scratch coat mortar evenly, another  option would be  to install cement board over the subfloor. It will save a lot of headache when you install the flooring on a level surface.

Marble Tile Mosiacs-Don Of All Trades

Handy Tip Number 3

When dealing with natural stone you always have to seal prior to grouting so that the natural stone does not absorb the colour of the grout.

Marble Mosaics Tile-Don Of All Trades

Once this process was completed we installed the Marble Mosaics tile without any issues. This floor was level and are happy to mention that we did not experience any uneven tile setting. With this type of tile, you cannot build up your floor  with mortar to compensate for an uneven surface. If you try to do this you could run into all sorts of problems with uneven tile and mortar squeezing out between the grout joints.

Once the marble mosaics tile had a day to set up, we then grouted the floor. Because this floor product is a natural stone, we applied an un-sanded grout and didn’t want to scratch the finish and keeping in mind that these grout joints were less that 4 millimeters.

The end result, spectacular! We absolutely love this marble mosaics tile flooring. Don of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services is looking forward to completing more flooring projects like this in the future!

 

Kind words from our clients…

Thanks so much Don, awesome job!! Will def be recommending you to friends and family.

Safe travels,

Carly and Kyle

Bowmanville, Ontario

Sheet Vinyl Flooring-Don Of All Trades

Vinyl is a great flooring preference  that fits every décor and budget. Vinyl floors are an affordable option that offers style, durability, and long-lasting performance. When installed correctly over the proper sub-flooring, vinyl is extremely resistant to dents, scratches, and stains.
Vinyl Flooring-Don Of All Trades photo 2[2] photo 3[2] photo 4[1]

Four more great reasons for choosing Vinyl Flooring  listed below.

Upkeep

 Vinyl flooring is relatively easy to care for. You have to make sure that grit and dirt are kept swept free to maintain the surface of the floor. Then you can use a damp mop and an approved vinyl floor cleaner to remove stains.

Comfort

Vinyl flooring does not get cold in the winter, and is generally soft beneath your feet. Some vinyl sheets and tiles have a padded layer that can make walking on these floors even more pleasurable.

  Economical

At the low range, vinyl can cost as little as fifty cents per square foot. However higher end premium vinyl materials can cost as much as ten dollars a square foot. The difference in price is determined by the quality of the tile, and the design options found in the surface.

 Water Resistant

 A well installed vinyl floor is almost impervious to water penetration, making this the perfect material for use in a bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, or other high moisture space in the home.
Sheet Vinyl Flooring-Don of All Trades

At Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services, our Home Improvement Specialists,  recommended  this type of sheet vinyl to install in the bathroom for two reasons.

Reason Number 1:

The first reason was the concern of a potential “tripping hazard.” Our client has difficulty lifting  his feet high off the ground. The original  bathroom floor tiles were popping off and the  risk of potentially  falling was extremely high. With sheet vinyl you greatly reduce of trips and falls.

Reason Number 2:

And the second reason being that because he is an older gentleman, this  sheet vinyl flooring  would be a warmer flooring alternative in the winter,  giving him more comfort when he utilizes the bathroom facilities.
