Installing Stone Tile
Stone basics: Stone is one of the most durable of all floorings-when properly installed, it should last the lifetime of a house. This toughness combined with the natural beauty of stone makes it the material of choice where quality and character are important considerations. Stone is just what its name implies: quarried slate, limestone, flagstone, granite, travertine or marble.
Stone tile should be sealed and routinely resealed for protection. Because tile and stone floors are heavy and unforgiving of movement, they are applied over a strong, unyielding base; otherwise, they will crack. Wood subfloors are either reinforced with a secondary layer of plywood, cement backer board, or for amore durable application, a mortar bed. Inlays also depend on your budget and personal preferences.
