TILING

 

Tile is one of the most versatile flooring options availble. It can be used on floors, walls, and ceilings in both wet and dry areas. It is extremely durable and can be as simplistic or artistic as the client desires. Whether choosing stone, glass or ceramic tile, Yellow Dog Contracting will bring beauty and functionality to your home.

 

Tiling can be one of the most cost-effective and dramatic ways to improve your home. Not only is tile a green alternative to other flooring options, but most tile will last five times as long as vinyl, wood, and carpet. Tile does not absorb or give off pollutants, is easy to clean, and ceramic tile serves as a solar collector. Helping to heat your home in the winter months. Waste tile can even be recycled as a base material in roads beds.

 

 

In the photo above, granite countertops were fitted, and white subway tile was added as a backsplash.

 

At Yellow Dog Contracting we have designed and completed dozens of tiling projects from entryways and pantries, to back splashes (photo on right) and bathtub surrounds. We use the most cutting edge no and low VOC green products during the installation process, and offer epoxy grouting.

 

A mold proof, stain proof, self-sealing grout option. Unlike most contractors, we keep all tiling jobs in-house. By doing this we are able keep our costs down, and pass this savings on to our clients.

 

 

When the space was gutted we exposed the original stone foundation in the back of the pantry space and laundry room.

 


 

Yellow Dog Contracting designed this pattern to fit a landing for the front door entrance of this home. The threshold and first step on the staircase were crafted from historic, salvaged lumber. A custom stain was formulated to match the replacement stair and threshold to the existing floorboards, which complimented our paint job.

 

 

This back splash is not actually tile, but followed a similar installation process. Metal lathe was attached to the studs and drywall above the counter, and a mortar base was laid over it. The faux stones were then placed to fit, and the joints were pointed. A stone sealer was then applied to avoid staining.

 

 

Simple white subway tile added as a backsplash helped to make the gorgeous granite countertops stand out while keeping a clean look.
