A Great Foundation Makes All the Difference

More Savvy Tips

There is a right way and a wrong way to install marble, tile and granite and what makes the difference is the foundation.  A quality job has to start with a cement mortar bed. Some companies take short cuts using a cement board instead on top of the sheet rock. The result is an unleveled surface, which leads to uneven walls, floors and countertops. Knowledgeable installers use levels and special materials where needed to make the top surface perfectly even. They also create a stucco mesh wire form that goes underneath the cement mortar. Shawn claims it is worth investing in the foundation because you will be more satisfied with the end product in the long run.
