2018 Spring/Summer Newsletter

We have some new and exciting news over at Installations Plus Inc, and we would love to share it with you! Please continue below to read about our recent travels and new endeavors!

Our trip to Spain

Earlier this year, Installations Plus completed a beautiful 6,000 square foot installation job, using Cosentino’s high end floor tiles shown here.



As a thank you, Cosentino generously invited us over to Spain for a visit and tour. We had such a wonderful time touring their gorgeous facility and exploring their vast quarry. It was quite interesting to see where exactly their products come from and all the challenging work that goes into the process of creating the tile. This is certainly a trip that we will never forget… Thank you Cosentino!


Meet Gerald!

We are excited to announce that Gerald LeBranti has come on board to expand our commercial division. Gerald joins us with an extensive history in contracting. He is working hard to help us develop our commercial division which covers soft goods like carpet, carpet tile, LVT, VCT, rubber flooring and other floating floors.

 The Advantages of Leveling Systems

ATTAINING A LIPPAGE FREE FINISH:

 

One of the most important aspects of any tiling job is ensuring that the result is a flat lippage free finish. Tile unevenness is called “lippage,” and avoiding it is one of the most critical pieces of a tile installation. Eliminating lippage creates an aesthetically pleasing look and reduces both the risk of damage to the edges of the tiles and the risk of anyone tripping on an uneven surface.

One of the best tools an installer has in avoiding lippage is a professional tile leveling system. Used after the surface is prepped and flattened, the leveling system consists of both clips that are placed between each tile and a wedge that interlocks the tiles at the same height. These prevent any movement during the setting process. The clips are made for every different size and thickness of tile. Tile leveling allows installers to work more quickly without sacrificing any quality while achieving the perfect lippage free finish.

Settling In: Build-out in Progress
