Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services was recently hired to on work this project involving the removal of the existing powder room floor and replacing it with Novecento brand Marble Mosaics.
Handy Tip Number 1
Be sure to wear safety glasses because there is going to be a lot of broken tile bits flying everywhere.
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.
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.
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.
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!
