The laying of tiles: precautions for the installer

Advice for proper laying

Laying and implementation, execution of the project

The installer, having seen the space or surface to be tiled, must:

  • set up and organize the installation area;
  • verify the surfaces to be tiled and prepare them accordingly;
  • accurately verify the measurements, the corners, verticality of the walls, and potential sloping of the floors and, where necessary, take the appropriate measures; 
  • inspect the materials;
  • if there are obvious defects, the installer must report them before beginning to lay the tiles;
  • optimize the laying surface, choosing suitable references so that the laying of the tiles may proceed as harmoniously as possible and so as to prevent disturbances (for example, the presence of cut or poorly joined tiles in visible positions);
  • prepare the mortar or the adhesives and proceed with the installation of the tiles;
  • after sufficient time has passed from the installation of the tiles - which can vary from several hours to several days, depending on the type of surface (floor or wall) and on the type of mortar or adhesive used – proceed with filling in the grout lines and with the final cleaning of the surface.

At this point the installer is able to “deliver” his work, which can and must be verified prior to being accepted.

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
