MAGMA's Tile Floor Installation Process:

Step 1: Subfloor Preparation - Your Foundation for Excellence

  • At MAGMA, we begin by meticulously preparing the subfloor, ensuring it is impeccably clean, dry, and perfectly level. Any imperfections or cracks are expertly repaired.
  • If your project involves tiling over a wooden subfloor, we enhance its stability by adding a layer of cement backer board, securely fastened. For concrete subfloors, we may apply a self-leveling underlayment to achieve a flawless surface.

Step 2: Layout Perfection - MAGMA's Artistic Touch

  • With a flair for design, we meticulously measure the room, marking the central point as the focal axis. Our skilled professionals snap chalk lines to create a grid, elegantly dividing your space into harmonious quadrants.
  • MAGMA's creative touch shines as we dry-lay tiles along the grid lines to plan a layout that is both beautiful and functional. We adjust the lines with an artistic eye, ensuring that no uneven cuts mar the edges of your space.

Step 3: Thin-Set Mortar Mixing - The Heart of Your Installation

  • Our attention to detail is unmatched. Following the manufacturer's instructions to the letter, we expertly mix the thin-set mortar to achieve a consistency reminiscent of creamy peanut butter.

Step 4: Artful Application of Thin-Set Mortar

  • At MAGMA, we commence our installation at the intersection of your meticulously laid chalk lines. With a notched trowel in hand, we spread a thin, perfectly textured layer of thin-set mortar on your subfloor.
  • Our precision is visible as we only spread enough mortar for a few tiles at a time, ensuring it retains its ideal consistency throughout the process.

Step 5: Tile Placement - MAGMA's Flawless Craftsmanship

  • Placing the first tile at the intersection of the chalk lines, we press it into the mortar with an artistic touch, ensuring a seamless bond. Our use of tile spacers guarantees consistently elegant spacing between tiles.
  • With the grace of a master artist, we continue to lay tiles along the grid lines, working outward step by step. A level ensures the tiles align perfectly, creating a visually captivating and even surface.

Step 6: Precision Tile Cuts - MAGMA's Customization

  • When the occasion calls for it, we measure and mark any tiles that require precise cuts to fit along the walls. Using a state-of-the-art tile cutter or wet saw, we execute the cuts with the expertise of a craftsman.
  • Our commitment to safety is unwavering. Our team members always wear the necessary safety gear when cutting tiles.

Step 7: Time for Setting - MAGMA's Patience and Precision

  • MAGMA knows the importance of patience. We allow the installed tiles to set in the mortar for the duration recommended by the manufacturer, typically 24 hours.

Step 8: Grout Application - MAGMA's Seamless Finish

  • The grout mix is prepared according to the manufacturer's instructions, and a grout float is used to artfully spread the grout evenly over the tiles, gently pressing it into the gaps.
  • Excess grout on tile surfaces is carefully removed with a damp sponge, leaving a clean, seamless finish.

Step 9: Optional Grout Sealing - MAGMA's Protection

  • For added protection against staining, MAGMA offers the option to seal the grout, following the instructions provided by the grout sealer manufacturer.

Step 10: The Final Touch - MAGMA's Finishing Excellence

  • Once the grout is dry, our meticulous team buffs the tile surface to remove any remaining grout haze, ensuring a stunning result.
  • We complete the installation by reinstalling baseboards and transition strips, leaving your tiled floor not only visually captivating but also ready for use.
