Tile expansion Joint
Most of the homes, offices, shopping malls and shops are now installed with tiles everywhere. Tiles are very common material for walls and floor for both exterior and interior. They are also used for wet areas like kitchen, bathroom and swimming pool. They enhance the beauty of a home, they are highly durable and lasts lifelong if properly maintained. The maintenance cost is low and it is easy to maintain. The tiles come into various design and shapes. They are easy to install and can support huge foot traffic. The tiles can be installed using tile adhesive and grouting.
Why do you need expansion joint?
In simple words the answer is expansion joints are needed to prevent the movement of the tiles, everything in the construction world moves and this movement can cause materials to fall apart. The tiles are the surface of the floor and every type of traffic takes place on it, movement joints are needed to decrease stresses that occurs between the substrate and the tile due to differing amounts of expansion and contraction. In bigger rooms, this expansion joints should be done every 15-20feet. Without this expansion joints which works as pressure-volumetric compensator, there is a high possibility that the tile may get crack and contract when temperature changes. Tile moved off the floor and sometimes cracked is often a sign that movement joints were not used sufficiently. For tile over concrete, the curing of the concrete places the tile under compression. Anyone who lives in a tiles house for more than one or two years knows how temperature can wildly affect tile from one day to another. The tile expansion joints are necessary for places where the changes every year. The expansion joints are usually available in a couple a different shapes. The purpose of different shapes are different depending on their need, the L-shape joints are typically used for walls and T-shape expansion joints are used between the tile courses. The L-shape is also needed in front of doors, where it helps to reduce the tile from cracking when the door open and closes regularly.
Movement joints are also required at all changes of plane. For example, the corners of an installation, or the transition between stair treads and risers. There is greater stress at these areas and they therefore require the use of a soft movement joint.
Type of Expansion Joint Materials:
Possibly the best type of expansion joint material that can be used is a flexible silicone or urethane sealant placed over a closed cell foam backer rod. The sealant that is used in expansion joints must achieve minimum shore strength of 35 or greater. The two-sided bond allows for highest movement of the sealant. A three-sided bond to the substrate can create a barrier the total capable movement of the flexible sealant and cause early joint cracking and disintegration. Bond breaker tape can be placed in joints that are too shallow to receive the closed cell foam backer rod. This bond breaker tape also makes provision for a two sided sealant bond. In certain cases, a suitable primer should be used in wet area conditions or when using a porous finish material.
Expansion joint strips are also available and can be used in many applications. An advantage to these expansion joint strips is that they protect the exposed tile edge better than the sealants. However, a disadvantage to the strips is that they do not allow for full joint movement as do the sealant joints. Some of these strips are composed of very strong plastic or metal and are not as flexible as the sealant joint. If they are used, it may be a good idea to increase the frequency of placement and/or allow for a wider space when they are placed
Conclusion of tile expansion joint
If you are working on flooring project for your home or any room, where you may think you do not need expansion or there is no space for joints then again you should install an expansion joint. Make a good calculation of everything when you install tile, a good calculation and proper installation will allow you to enjoy your floor for longer years. You can also consult with a tile expert regarding the whole matter to get good suggestions.
In summary, every tile installation should allow for movement. Skillfully and properly designed installations, where expansion and contraction do not create shear forces, should have no problem for the tile to stay well adhered.

Home owners should consider the following guidelines when choosing bathroom tiles. The tips are modest and will assist one in choosing the finest tiles that will satisfy the needs of the customer. This is for keeping the bathroom in good condition every day. Above all, the individual preference will determine the designs and patterns to buy.
One should consider the easiness of cleaning the tiles. The bathroom is a room which is regularly used and it should be regularly be clean. The floor should not be storing dirt that can cause stains that are difficult to scrub. It is good to consider the tiles that have smaller number of curves. It is in those curves that dirt accumulates since they are invisible while cleaning. Relatively flat floors are easy to clean and to remove the dirt.
The tiles to be installed in the bathroom should be able to blend with the other assets in the room. The assets are like the door rugs and the surrounding colors. Some colors can be color blocked and they will improve the exterior of the room. While others need shade matches so that they can blend well. Thus, the home owner should consider the colors that will blend with the existing strictures in the house.
Knowing the floor area will help in buying the tiles that will fit the bathroom. The tiles fragments are usually measured in square units. Hence, the area of the room will help in calculating the number of sets that need to be bought. It will help the home owner to buy them in wholesale instead of buying one set at a time which is generally expensive. Thus, one will be able to support the whole budget.
Choose the types that will provide grip while bathing. The soapy water can be risky on glassy floor and one can easily slide and fall. The stony tiles are effective because they will be able to offer grasp and one will be stable while walking on them. Also, the slates should be permitting the water to flow out and not to store the water. This becomes difficult to keep on draining out the water.
Consider the tiles that have a water resistant layer. Floors that absorb water molecules do not last for long because they are vulnerable to cracking. Water proof floors are the most efficient because a lot of water is used in the bathroom. The water will drain out easily and the floor will be drying so fast once one finishes bathing. The excess moisture will be continuously regulated making the room to look clean and organized.
Sticking within the drafted budget is important. The home owner should buy tiles at prices that are within the budget. Mark that; the value of the goods should not be ignored in the name of buying cheap products. The customer should compare the prices from several producers. So to select one who sells quality products at affordable prices. Thus, one will be in a position to enjoy bathing on durable floor at all times.

But the tiles that have been made from the natural material are able to resist wearing out hence last for long.
Buying the products from a long term established manufacturer is important. They have been able to maintain the quality standard of production over the years. This reassures the client of buying tiles that are suitable for the bathroom and of good quality. This is because the bathroom is an area that a lot of water is used and they should be made in way that they adopt to such environments. The old suppliers have modified floor covers that will withstand the wearing out that are caused by water.
Consider installing tiles that have bright colors. They help in improving the appearance of the bathroom and make it to appear spacious. Dark colored tiles do not reflect much light in the interior zones making the room to look small. The customer should think of matching the existing colors with the new tiles. Also the patterns the floor should be according to the preference of the owner. They are produced in several designs and the customer is able to select the desired model.

How to Calculate Floor area For Tiles
When purchasing tiles for your floor estimating the number of tiles required can be a daunting task especially if your floor area is not a square or a rectangle.
This is heightened by the fact that most tiles come in dimensions
of 2” x 2”, 4” x 4”, 6” x 6 “, 9” x 9”, 12”x 12” and 18” x 18” square inches though there are other variations depending on the manufacturer and consumer taste.
Similarly, it is no doubt that not all your rooms will conform to perfect squares or rectangles and you therefore have to be sure how you will find out how many tiles you need for the job.
Before we delve deep into the whole concept of measuring floor area and tiles, let us take a look at some of the measuring units that are necessary for floor area measurement and how they relate to each other.
1m = 100 cm = 3.2808 feet = 39.370 inches
1 square meter = 10000 square cm = 10.7639 square feet =1,550 square inches
Do not worry about the decimal points, we will show you how to approximate your floor area tile without cracking your calculator. Furthermore, it is important to note that you need to buy a few extra tiles for cutting allowances.
What you Need
Before you begin this exercise you will need; a pen (or pencil), a measuring tape, and a calculator. You may also need someone to hold the tape for you on the other end.
Step 1; Calculate the Area of the Room
This is the most important step of any tiling exercise. You need to be certain of what area you want to place tiles, and then calculate the area of that space. If your room has wardrobes and other places that may not need tiles you can reduce that are by calculating the area of the smaller region and subtracting from the total are you calculated initially.
How to find area of a square and a rectangle
Measure the two sides of the floor in centimeters or meters, the longest side is called length (denoted by L), and the shorter side is called width (denoted by W). For a square both length and width are equal.
Multiply the two sizes. I.e.
L X W = area of the room
How to find the area of a circle
If you have a circular room you want to tile then here is how to find the area of the room.
Measure the diameter of the room in centimeters; the diameter is the length of any straight line that passes through the centre of the room and touches the ends of the room.
The area of a circle if given by the formula 3.14 x r x r; where R is half of the diameter. If you find this irritating you can divide the house into rectangles and calculate the area of each rectangle and add the resulting areas to get one area of the room.
How to measure the area of a triangle
To find the area of a triangle, use the formula;
(Base x height) divided by 2. The base is one length of the triangle while the height is the length of the triangles head from a 90 degree point on the base length.
For other floor area shapes, divide the floor area into several squares or triangles and calculate the respective areas of the rectangles. Then add all the resulting areas into one figure and you would have approximated the area of the floor area.
Once you have the size of the room, write it down neatly since you will be using it again in consecutive steps.
Step 2; calculate the area of each tile
Measure the length and width of the type tile you want to buy for you floor. Usually, tiles come in standard square lengths as mentioned above.
So here is a quick calculation of each of the tiles.
1"x1" = 1” squared
2"x2" = 4” squared
3"x3" = 9” squared
4"x4" = 16”squared
6"x 6" = 36” squared
8"x 8" = 64” squared
2"x4" = 8” squared
2"x8" = 16” squared
4"x 8" = 32” squared
60 x 60 cm = 3600 cm square (granite tile)
Using the inches to meters converter described above, you can convert the area of your floor into square inches so that you have a solid measuring to work with.
For example if your room measure 15 m by 10 meters; then the area of your room is 150sqm or 1615 square feet or 232500 square inches.
Step 3; Estimate the number of Tiles you need for each Room
The next step will be to identify how many tiles will fit into the room perfectly. However, at this point it is important to note that while every measure is taken to ensure you get a perfect measure of the number of tiles needed for a room, they are just approximations and you need to add between 5-15 % more tiles to cater for breakages and shortage.
This means that the number of tiles required will be equals to; area of the room + waste.
Since you have the area of the room and the size of the tiles, divide the area of the room with the area of the size of the tile and you will get the number of tiles needed.
Let us look at an example of a room with length 20 and width 10m
Area of 200sqm = 2152 square feet = 310000 square inches
200sqm will use 1”x 1” tiles as = approx. 310,000 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 2” x 2” tiles as = approx 77,500 tiles +waste
200sqm will use 3” x 3” tiles as = approx. 34445 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 4” x 4” tiles as = approx. 19375 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 6” x 6” tiles as = approx 8611 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 8” x 8” tiles as = approx 4844 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 2”x 4” tiles as = approx. 38750 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 2” x 8” tiles as = approx. 19375 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 4” x 8” tiles as= approx. 9699 tiles + waste
200sqm will use 60cm x 60 cm tiles as = approx. 556 tiles + waste
While it may not be easy to understand how to calculate floor area for tiles by yourself, you can always contact a professional to do it for you. Similarly, using a professional minimizes the number of wastage tiles during installation.
Be sure to add about 5%-15% extra tiles beyond the approximated tiles so that you do not run out of them during the process. Finally ensure you use enough grout to hold the tiles firmly on the floor.
