How To Install a Tile Floor

Tile floors are stylish, durable, and long-lasting. These factors make them perfect for entryways, kitchens, and bathrooms. If you’re planning to install a tile floor, make sure you have everything you need to get the job done right.

Start with a good substrate, like cement board, before installing the tile. Mix up a batch of mortar and then fasten the substrate to the mortared portion of the floor with screws. Let your substrate sit over night to dry. The next day, lay down some more mortar and place the tile on top. Use chalk lines and spacers to ensure your tiles and grout lines are straight. Place a liberal amount of grout between the tiles and rinse the tiles free of excess grout fairly often. Watch this video for a visual demonstration of the process.

What You'll Need to Install a New Floor In Your Home

Bedroom Carpet Installation with Cutter and Worker

Installing a new floor in your home yourself saves a lot of money, but it will take up a lot of your time if you don’t have the right flooring tools. What’s more is that a floor installed without the proper equipment will look shoddy and unprofessional. So, what do you need to install your new floor? That depends on the type of floor you’re installing. Consider these lists of some basic tools needed to install carpet, tile, laminate, and hardwood floors.

Carpet Floors

DIY carpet floor installations call for several tools to get the job done right. Carpet trimmers help you get your carpet nice and flush against the walls after the carpet is laid. Corner carpet cutters do the same for awkward corners. A carpet seaming iron is used to smooth out the surface of your carpet, especially where ridges have formed.

Ceramic Tile, Laminate, and Brick Floors

Professional cutting tools are necessary for laying tile, laminate, and brick floors properly. They allow you to cut through materials easily and precisely in order to better fit them against the corners, doorways, countertop bases, and other nuances of the room. Precision cuts are especially helpful because they help you to get the most out of expensive flooring materials, like ceramic tile. A ceramic tile cutter, like many of its counterparts, is hand-powered.

Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors remain one of the most popular flooring materials in homes today, but installation requires the right tools to maximize its lifespan. When securing hardwood planks to the floor, a floor tightening jack is needed to hold the planks tight against one another until the nails can be driven in to take over. The nailing process is important, too, and you’ll have to choose between a nailer kit designed for hand-powered or air-powered operation. For exotic thin hardwood, bamboo, and engineered composite flooring, use a pneumatic floor stapler with 20-gauge staples. These work best for flooring materials that range ¼ to ½ an inch in thickness.

A Tool Shed Equipment Rentals has everything you need to install your new floor without breaking your budget. Don’t buy expensive flooring tools you’ll only use once. Rent flooring tools and equipment from us, instead. We have all the flooring tools mentioned above and six convenient locations, around San Jose, to serve you.

The Advantages of Renting Equipment for Your Next Project

Work Tools

We’ve all seen it: A friend or relative’s work shed is overwhelmed with dusty equipment and tools. It’s a shame when such expensive and useful tools begin to rust, collect cobwebs, and lose performance over time. The tools are no longer the brand-new, powerful, and attractive pieces they once were when purchased. For this very reason, many DIYers and project managers prefer to rent equipment instead of buying it. This saves money and time while ensuring only the best tools are used for every project.

Saves Money

While purchasing high-performance equipment and tools often sets you back hundreds of dollars per unit, renting is a much more budget-friendly option. A quality equipment rental company lets you rent items on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly basis and without the added cost of sales tax, saving you money in the process. Some DIYers use the extra funds to upgrade to higher quality paints, finishes, nails, doorknobs, fixtures, flooring, and other items.

No Repairs Down the Road

Everyone likes the look of a shiny new tool, but every tool will need maintenance and repair at some point. Owning an expensive piece of equipment means that you own its repair needs, too. Renting saves you this trouble because the rental company is responsible for the good condition and clean appearance of the tools it rents out.

Save Time

If you’re project’s success depends on a specialized tool and multiple handymen, having only one of that specialized tool can slow you down. Say, for instance, you need your crew to air-nail hardwood floors in two different rooms, but you only brought the one pneumatic air hammer you own. Don’t make your crew sit around waiting for their turn with the tool; rent additional tools to get your job done in half the time.
