The Correct Subfloor Structure Is Critical to Performance
Ceramic tile, more than any other form of flooring, requires the proper subfloor system and setting materials. A double subfloor system with the total thickness of 1-1/4 in., over floor joists 16 in. on center is required. The top subfloor layer should be exterior grade plywood or an underlayment specifically designed for ceramic tile installation like cement backer board.
Special setting materials are available which will allow ceramic tile installations over existing floors that are solid and already meet the above requirements. Failure to provide a sturdy base can cause the grout to crack and release or tile to crack. Although many ceramic tiles look the same, there are quality differences.
The quality of raw materials, the firing process, and the sophistication of glazing applications that create realism will determine the quality of the finished product. These quality differences are often reflected in the price. Selecting the right surface glaze is an important step when selecting floor tile.
Floor tiles are rated for glaze wear and slip resistance, which are important factors to consider. Glaze ratings should exceed 3 for residential applications with the exception of bath areas that can use tiles rated 2. Tiles with a slip resistant rating of 0.5 or better should work well in most indoor residential applications.
Use caution when selecting tile for outdoor installations. Unglazed quarry tiles, tiles with heavily textured surfaces, or porcelain paver tiles, all with slip resistant ratings of 0.6 or greater are possibilities. They must also be frost resistant. Request the best in setting materials. New latex modified mortars and grouts provide better strength while also allowing greater flexibility.
Special Caution: Dropping objects on ceramic tile, particularly heavy ones, can chip even the best tiles.

"John and his team are nothing but the best. I have heard horror stories of how flooring companies overcharge, installers are rude, unprofessional, dirty and just the worst. We have heard great things about John Grande Floors and it is all true. We not only shop for price but we definitely shop for quality. With Grande Floors from Rose in the office to John and his team on the job we can’t say enough great things. Sure you can call other companies, most likely you won’t have the owner himself on his hands and knees installing and busting his rear to see that everything is 101% perfect. With Grande you get the best and nothing but the best. We went to one flooring company a little over a year ago, and we told to choose this one floor. Needless to say we were disappointed with the final project. It was horrible. We took others advise went to Grande Floors and they took amazing care of us. They don’t try to sell you something you don’t need or want. They are very honest and professional. In fact, when you leave their showroom with so many samples on display you can leave knowing you got a great price and you will get an amazing job.
Don’t go to a company that sells the product and subs the install out. Remember, when the job comes out horrible or if you have a problem, good luck. You will get the infamous words, we are waiting for the installation crew to call us back, they don’t work for us. That’s all I’m saying. So be smart and go with Grande Flooring!!!"- Melissa Mangel
