Countertop installing

Countertop installations

Countertop tile setting is much like setting tile on floor, except in smaller scale. Adding a backsplash would be like setting wall tile. Seeing as they will be in an area where food acids, grease, water and spills occur, to help keep mold, mildew and bacteria from growing, non-porous tiles and latex or acrylic-modified adhesive grouts are recommended as are cement backer boards and mortar beds.

Floor Installation
The majority of all tiles installed are used in inviting entryways, hallways, low-maintenance bathrooms and kitchens, and decorative terraces and balconies. Whatever the area, all materials must be carefully considered for the end result to be both appealing to the eye, protected and useful for its chosen purpose.

Many things must be considered; from the foundation and adhesive, to the type of tile and grout to be used. The surface must be prepared to receive preparation and tile, layout must be made, setting sequence (straight, diagonal, intermittent, etc), alignment, grouting and finishing.

Wall Installations
Wall installation can even be a challenge for professionals. Although there are similarities with floor installations, walls pose the problem of gravity. Floor tiles tend to stay where they are placed. Wall tiles tend to want to shift downward due to gravity pull. Cement backers or mortar may be used as a setting bed for wall tiles.

San Diego Granite Countertops Restoration, Refinishing, & Polishing Services

Diamonds and polishing powders used at the right time with a qualified, skilled hand is needed to restore shine to marble and granite. A quick overview of the 3 basic steps; Grinding, Honing and Polishing:
  • Grinding uses a grit of 60 or below and usually done when a flat floor is desired. Example: if stone tiles are uneven or set higher than each other (known as lippage). A flat floor is easier to maintain, grout is kept cleaner.The downside to grinding is that it is very messy, expensive, and time-consuming. For example, 50-square feet of granite can take an entire day of work. Surrounding areas need to be protected due to slurry caused by the large amounts of water needed.
  • Honing uses grit of 120 and above. (400-600 on marble before polishing). Although not as aggressive as grinding, honing can be equally as messy due to the use of water. Honing is used to remove scratches by the process of smoothing the stone with abrasives. It can round edges but does not remove lipage, as grinding can.
  • Polishing brings out a high gloss, achieved by using super fine diamond discs and super fine powders.
