Prevent Tile Installation Lippage with the Tuscan Leveling Products Available at Tile Outlets
Prevent lippage or uneven tile installation by using leveling products such as the Tuscan SeamClip™ or the Tuscan Leveling System available at Tile Outlets of America stores in Fort Myers, Tampa and Sarasota, Florida.
"Leveling tools such as what Tuscan offers allow professional or DIY tile installers to lock tiles together into an overall flat wall or tile surface as they are being installed, until the setting materials cure," says Michele Hoover, vice president of operations and general manager of the Fort Myers store, Tile Outlets of America. "These systems prevent tiles from moving during the drying process."
A leveling system should be used on any tile that has a side 24" or larger, including any rectangular tile such as, but not limited to, wood look planks. It should also be used for the installation of rectified tile or stone installations where a minimum of 1/16" grout joint is being used.
The two products available at Tile Outlets of America include the Tuscan SeamClip and the Tuscan Leveling System.
· The Tuscan SeamClip is a unique one-piece system that clicks into place by hand. No tools are required to use or remove the clips. The SeamClips™ come in 3 sizes, based on the thickness of the tile being set. They are designed to work with tile that is 1/8", ¼" and 3/8" thick.
· The Tuscan Leveling System® is comprised of caps, straps, and a tightening tool. This system will work with ceramic, porcelain, marble, onyx, granite and most composites. It is designed to work with tiles 12" or larger and tile that is thicker than 3/8"; it is most ideal for large format tiles including the large, thin materials.
Both systems work for patterned ceramic and porcelain tile installations although the Tuscan Leveling System is better on a chiseled edge pattern than the SeamClips.
Both systems are manufactured in the USA.
"The tile installation professionals who use leveling systems such as these two from Tuscan have noticed faster tile installation with considerably fewer installation issues, not to mention a beautifully flat, smooth finished floor or wall," says Hoover.
In addition to tile installation materials and tools, each Tile Outlets store includes an Inspiration Center where customers can see how mosaics, pencils and tile in different finishes look together. They can view and touch the different types of tile and textures. They also can sit down to discuss their project with any of Tile Outlet's experienced sales associates who can help with design and planning. Store managers and sales associates at all Tile Outlets of America stores have been certified as Ceramic Tile Specialists by the Ceramic Tile Institute of America.
All Tile Outlets of America stores - in Fort Myers, Sarasota and Tampa - are open 7 days a week and regularly feature manager's specials.
