About a month ago I was in a workshop for tradesman in Tile Installation when I met this guy who was very experienced in the area. We began talking about how to present to the customer the idea of having a shower waterproofing system installed in the bathroom walls. It seems very logical that's the very reason why we put tiles on walls, to make.it waterproof. But as we come to find out through out the years, that's not enough. We need to make the walls before tiling waterproof with good prep work and materials. Of course, that means an increase on the customers budget, which is not always welcome, to say the least.
That's when this guy I was talking to told me: Did you know that on average shower walls and floor takes as much water a year as a regular house rooftop? It's around 28,000 gallons of water a year.
Time and time again I get calls from people having to deal with water leaking from the shower floor down the to floor below. It's a big hassle. Even bigger when someone other than the customer, hence the neighbors are the ones getting their head wet. Not to say when there's no sign of a leaking problem but water it's been making it's way to the back of the wall, causing mold and all kind of nasty things.
Fixing it's always more expensive than preparing and doing it right the first time.

Now days we're experimenting a shift in the marketing world. We have been in business for a long time and aside of "word of mouth" we need to make our presence on the web to reach people with tile installation needs. Our focus is to provide the best quality, professional and courteous service there is and as result of that we've been getting great reviews. It's personally very satisfying when I see a smile and a genuine comment from someone I had just finished a job for.
We strive to deliver the best possible final product, from the day we met as I am introduced to the job to the day we put away our set up and clean up the job site. It's extremely important we leave a good impression on people's mind because that's how we're going to be remembered for.
On the other hand, as part of that same philosophy, I would like to extend an olive branch to those that in some capacity haven't been totally satisfied with our services: Please don't hesitate to let us know; give us the opportunity to make it up to you.
We like to say to our customers: "Your satisfaction is our biggest asset." and it is indeed.

I believe our house is a very strong symbol of that very thing I am talking about. I has everything to do with our roots, it's a symbol of heaven, it's our safe place, our identity and we strive consciously or sub-consciously, day in day out to turn our house into our home.
The way we decorate our house say something about us, It is a form of printing our identity on it and making a statement of our character, our personality. The colors we paint the walls, where and how we place the couch, the vase, the rug, but more than that, how we maintain everything and align it with our inner disposition.
That's where we as tile installers come in and help you one step further bringing all those pieces together, whether it's a bathroom, a shower wall with deco and mosaic border, a herringbone 12x24 layout on the the floor, helping you placing tiles in the right place, just the right way taking into consideration the fact that's more, much more than just a work site, it's your home.
Last week I was called to a customer's house to give an estimate about a master bathroom she wanted to renovate. When I got there she took me to the second floor and told me what she had in mind.
A very modern design with 4x8 white marble looking porcelain tile staggered on the walls. 18x18 dark tiles for the floor, but to my surprise she wanted to install pre-fabricated iron cast shower pan...
I was kind of surprised because it's not usual and I don't think it would go well with the rest of the plan, but ok, I went along.
It's imperative that we as professional tile installers take care of waterproofing the bathroom and make sure everything lines up before tiling. Unfortunately many people are tempted to take the easy way out and they don't do the prep work correctly.
Now days there are many products and solutions in the market as far as waterproofing, but it's always imperative that you find a real pro to do the work.
