Ceramica Tamakloe Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic tiles are used in various places around the home and for businesses as well since they leave an impression no other types of material can match. Glazed tiles especially are known for their ability to keep water away and easy to clean so their use around kitchens and bathrooms are the preferred choice. Higher quality designs make even the most boring of areas come alive so looking into using ceramic tiles by Ceramica Tamakloe is hopefully a choice you’ll make in the future.

While there are other obvious choices such as natural stone or marble, the beauty of ceramic tiles is the variety of choices available and the ability of a craftsman to make something unique from the clay mixtures. Fired at high temperatures, these tiles then become works of art in the right hands. Another unique property that makes them favorable is the ability to installed over many different materials such as cement board, plaster board and sheet rock. More than likely if you’re installing in areas that will be moist like in the bathroom or kitchen sink, cement board will normally be the base.

Now we probably don’t need to convince you anymore of the advantages of using ceramic tiles so we’ll talk a little bit about installation as that can be an issue for many. With all the sizes, just this decision alone can be quite daunting but the most popular size tile is about 12 inches, but this also varies much by the chosen area. Depending on the base will also dictate the size since a sturdier foundation can hold even larger tiles.

Galvanized screws will be necessary when securing the wall studs, as it’s most resistant to moisture. The biggest challenge for many is the marking and spacing of the tiles so always choose the center area and go out from there to get the most uniform of looks. Avoiding the need of special tools to cut holes in areas around shower controls for example is definitely in your best interest but also probably unavoidable so conferring with an expert is highly recommended, at least of this part of the process.

On first impression upon completion of the installation, a nice balance is what you want to achieve. Start at the center of your project as mentioned but insure that at each end, the symmetry is also maintained. We can’t help but keep pointing this part out as it has the most effect on the end product.

There are many steps not fully discussed here such as laying the adhesive properly and moving through the process quickly in order to avoid letting things dry up too quickly without proper planning. Our goal was to give you some pointers and throughout this website, you’ll see more details on steps if really desired. Hopefully, the beauty of our tiles will be enough to convince one of proceeding with a ceramic tile project so please let us know if you have any questions regarding ceramic tiles.

Fireproofing Your Home With Good Materials

Fireproofing your home is not just something to increase it’s value. It can save your life and your family so looking into more detailed actions you can do when considering home renovations, is highly recommended. While on our website we focus primarily on ceramic based things like tiles, we feel this topic is important enough to talk a bit more about it here.

From the ground up to the ceilings, each item you can select gives you an opportunity to further protect yourself from the dangers of fire. Even if just for a few seconds or precious minutes you can gain, it is well worth it. Ceramic tiles for the floor is an obvious choice you know we’d point out but choosing quality fire proof ceiling tiles, fire proof paint, fire resistant materials for curtains or in your furniture is just many examples of things most people are not even looking for.

Fireproofing Your HomeNow, when paint was mentioned above, it should be clarified that this is not just the paint on the walls, but special paint that can be applied to wiring, since electrical fires are one of the most common causes of home fires. Understandably, smoking or more specifically, the leaving of butts that still have the potential to light something flammable up is top reason for accidental fires. Knowing this, it just makes sense to avoid or put into place preventative measures.

Keeping your smoke detectors batteries fully charged is key as well. Many times, when those detectors run low on battery, they make an annoying beeping sound. While bothersome, please remember that it serves it’s purpose to remind you of what you need to do. Replace the battery and be safer. Ensure you have a few extinguishers around the home that can be easily accessible wherever you are since one on the other side of the home would be no use to you, especially if a wall of flames stands between you.

While is may sound silly, planning a fire route for your home is very helpful. Knowing all the safe escape routes and educating everyone in the household about it is just another step you can do to keep everyone safe. Back to the topic of things to avoid, use common sense such get rid of frayed electrical wires or replace the appliance altogether.

Do not overload your electrical sockets. While the advance of technology has increased the demand of electricity, the original design for most homes did not fully factor this in and plugging in too many devices can overload the system enough to cause some danger. Just be keenly aware of what is going on and you should be good.

As you can see, taking the necessary steps to avoid a fire in the first place will go a long way. Investing in materials throughout the home that are in alignment with this thinking will greatly improve the odds of a problem never happening. If so, we hopefully contributed to this effort and that’s all we can ask for!
