New Tile for Entry Floor

Finished floor.

Finished floor.

Another part of the entry project is replacing the old broken tile. The old floor showed signs of excessive flexing as tiles would regularly work loose and have to be returned to their place with more adhesive. Also the aluminum threshold of the door had failed and water had worked under the tile and had rotted the sub-floor which had to be replaced in the door area. Another source of flexing was the particle board used under the slate. This was removed and I used 1/2 inch concrete board to help stiffen the floor.

This gallery includes before and after shots while the one below shows just the slate installation.
