Being in the tile business for 30+ years, naturally, we’ve learned quite a bit about the installation process. Installing tile correctly is crucial for a number of reasons. For one, if the tiles are glued crookedly or spaced unevenly, it will not be aesthetically pleasing. We all want our floors or backsplash tiles to make the rooms look better, not worse! Also, improperly installed tile is prone to cracking and can even become a tripping hazard. It’s not just gluing the tiles perfectly, though. The grouting process is just as important! Using the wrong kind of grout (a bonding material that goes into the spaces between tiles) can be just as detrimental as gluing the tile incorrectly would be. If you choose a grout that is too coarse or not coarse enough, or if you pick the wrong kind, it’s a recipe for disaster.
