Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 sells and installs a wide variety of tiles, with many sample tiles on display in our Ponte Vedra showroom. And we also can install tiles provided by clients and local building contractors we work with.
For this job, the owners of a home in the North Island section of the Marsh Island Golf and Country Club community of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida provided us the wood look floor tiles for our crew to install. There were 3 different plank tiles used for this job. We installed their tile in the separate Casita, as well as the office, master bedroom, upstairs bonus room, and on the stairs that led up to bonus room.
Our work started by prepping; taking out all of the carpet from these areas as well as from the stairs. We spotted some small cracks in the concrete slab subfloor. Small, surface stress cracks in poured concrete floors can appear as the home settles. Our crew fills in cracks wider than 1/4″ wide. Then we applied Bostick Leveler to the concrete slab subfloors. The Leveler also fills in the smaller cracks in the concrete subfloor. Our crew sanded the edges of the sheet plywood to level the floors subfloors upstairs. We also squared the stairs off with Hardibacker board. Squaring the stairs like this gives better final results when we laminate the stairway with tile. Proper prepping for any job is important!
In the bonus room, our team installed Detra membrane by Schluter as an underlayment, between the sheet plywood subfloor and the tile. Detra is lighter than Hardibacker board. Detra is a little more expensive but designed specifically for ceramic and stone tile installations to ensure the durability and integrity of the installation; a great product.
Once all of this prep work was done, our crew installed the client’s wood look plank tile, and our client agreed; it looks amazing! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.
