tile on the front of the house was around 20 years old. The house had old wood
windows which led to some instability and deterioration of the mosaic around them.
tile began to pull away from the house itself, leaving opportunity for moisture to
behind the tile and create an ongoing problem.
In the spring 2006 we began the renovation. The Tile House is getting a face lift!
We scraped all the existing
tile off the front face of the house, removed paint with a
and grinder, installed brand new windows and resurfaced the entire area
a latex based mortar, appropriate for tile bondage. Rubbings were made of the existing
pattern, so the design was matched as closely as possible. We expect
the project to be
completed within two years of the starting date of
|preparing surface for tile
