Tiles are a popular flooring choice for many homes and businesses. They are durable and versatile. You can find so many patterns and colours which will help match the tiles with any aesthetic. To extend the life of your tiled floor, you need to carry out maintenance tasks. One of these is tile sealing.
You first need to consider your needs when it comes to tile sealing.
Some of the factors you will have to consider will be the type of tiles you have and where the tiles are located. Some of the different tiles you can have are natural stone, ceramic, porcelain and glass. Depending on the different tile types, the sealing product used will vary along with the technique used. The frequency of sealing will depend on the frequency of use; for example, you will need to seal high traffic areas like the kitchens and bathrooms more. You can ask the tile sealing companies for a recommendation on what sealing products to use depending on your requirement. But when selecting an expert, you have to do some research. You can ask friends, family members and colleagues if they have had their tiles sealed. Make sure to search the recommendations online as well because you will be able to read feedback from previous clients.
When asking for recommendations,
Make sure to ask about their personal experience with the company and the quality of service provided. You can also search for tile sealing experts in your local area to further create a list of potential companies. Once you have a list, you can compare each of them based on credentials, experience, costs, products and techniques used. You need to select a licensed company so that you are protected against any damages or accidents that can occur during the sealing process. You can also ask the company whether they have experience regarding your particular type of tiles and the scope of project. Ask them about the different sealing methods they use and the reasons for using them. You need to select a company that is licensed and insured. Once you shortlist a few companies based on their qualifications, you can ask them for references. By reaching out to their previous clients, you can ask them about the reliability of the company, their customer service and quality of work.
Make sure you get multiple quotes so that you can compare prices.
Look for a detailed quotation that provides information about the products they use and include all the charges. If there are companies that have significantly lower quotes, this can be a red flag because they may be using subpar materials. You need to balance quality with price when selecting a company. Ask the company about the products and techniques they use. Ask about the number of coats required for sealing and the drying time for the process. You need to have a written contract before the work starts with it detailing all aspects of the project. This should include the materials used, total cost for the project, timeline and scope of work.
