Bathroom Floor Tiling Project – SnapStone Floor Tile Packaging

Now, I don’t want you to think that ‘Gosh, there was a lot of tasks needed before Bennett even started to lay the non-traditional floor tile product from SnapStone.” just because we have already written several articles in this series and we haven’t yet started to lay the tile in earnest.

Typically, you would not have to do nearly the amount of floor preparation we did. Remember we had carpet and under-padding in this bathroom, which is not the typical type of floor materials for this room.

As well, don’t forget the crappy particle sub-floor with all the gaps and spaces and extreme squeakiness upon which we had to lay the fresh press board.

As well, if you are laying this product in any other room in the home you are not likely to have a toilet requiring extra work.

The effort Bennett undertook in all the prior articles only took about 8 hours altogether.

But now we are ready to install the product, which you can see laid out nicely, ready for Bennett in the picture below.

Now, do you want to know what took about a full hour to do? Well, that evening after Bennett left I proceeded to take the tile out of its packaging and lay it out as shown about.

Why a full hour? I mean it is only 60 tiles in the above picture.

However, once you open the first package of 5 tiles you notice that on the back of the first 4 tiles is a piece of paper? What is on the back?

One tile has the SnapStone installation instructions, shown in the above picture, in English. Another tile has the same SnapStone installation instructions in Spanish.

Another has the warranty information and form in English and another the same in Spanish.

What took me so long was that I didn’t want any of this paper to remain on the underside of a SnapStone tile, shown in the above picture, not knowing if over time this would cause creakiness when one walked on the tile. So, I took my time.

This did waste paper. However, I can appreciate that since the lines in the picture of the underside of a SnapStone tile are basically rubber, during the process to adhere the underside to the back of the porcelain tile there could be a risk that the rubber would become attached to the top of the porcelain tile directly underneath in the same package.

Alright, here we go … let’s start to lay down some floor tile.

WAIT! What about the thin-set on top of the wood underfloor? Nope. Remember, that is one of the major advantages of a SnapStone porcelain floor tile, namely that you can lay it directly on top of the wood or cement or linoleum flooring.
