Professional Tile Installation Perth
Sebastian Otley Tiling & Stone use a commercial-grade, fibre reinforced waterproofing on all of our jobs to ensure they are leak-free forever. Being Perth’s tiling professionals means no lipping between tiles and minimal grout joints. Minimal grout joins not only looks better but means less space for dirt and bacteria and less cleaning/maintenance required.
Porcelain tiles have less porosity than ceramic tiles and need a C2 S1 adhesive to stick properly, same with glass tiles. Stones substrates are different again, we always use a C2 S2, especially with white marble.
White marble needs a white glue otherwise you will see the glue through the tile when it dries. Sebastian Otley Tiling & Stone add screed to all our floors where possible to have a seamless, flat finish. This is especially important with gloss tiles as the end result is like a mirror. Large-format tiles require very flat walls and floors to have the perfect end result. This can only be achieved with tilers who can render and screed properly.
The adhesive regulations change with tiles and substrates, however, a C1 S1 adhesive is suitable with most substrates and ceramic tiles, we know exactly what to use to avoid drummy tiles or tiles lifting over time. This is especially important with porcelain, glass and stone.
We choose to use superior adhesives for peace of mind and to ensure all our work lasts forever. This is most important to us. When considering your bathroom renovation waterproofing is so important. We use puddle flanges to ensure a perfectly watertight shower.
