Giving the appearance of visual perfection and the elegance of clean, welcoming ambiances, the Savannah Series reflects the soul of wood with its timeless beauty and silent perfect linesThe Savannah Series is a rectified color body porcelain. This tile is absolutely beautiful and looks amazingly real. It is the synthesis of digital technology applied to aesthetic research. Giving the appearance of visual perfection and the elegance of clean, welcoming ambiances, the Savannah Series reflects the soul of wood with its timeless beauty and silent perfect lines. Because this material is a porcelain product, minimal maintenance is required. Savannah Series is available in three sizes and six colors. Numerous patterns can be created with the available sizes. When installing rectangular tiles 15 inches or longer with a staggered joint, industry standard is that the offset should not exceed 33%. Piece to piece variation in shade or color are inherent in all fired clay products; therefore, it is recommended to mix tiles from several boxes at a time during installation to achieve the best range of color. When mixing sizes within a series, shade, texture and calibration differences should be expected. This series is suitable for residential and commercial applications.   For proper bonding, medium bed mortar should be used when installing tiles with a dimensional length greater than 15”, and rectangular shape and plank tile, per industry standards. Proper thin-set coverage is also necessary, and in some cases, back buttering of tile may be required. I cannot say enough good things about this particular tile and look. We have installed thousands of sqft. of this material and it seriously looks AWESOME! I can highly recommend this product and look with 100% confidence that you will love it.

These synthetic options are generally much less expensive than wood, tile, or stone. They are also easier to care for. Many of these products are designed to closely mimic the natural products, so that the difference is only visible on close inspection. Do not settle for inexpensive laminate flooring as this type is normally not regulated and many customers have learned the hard way by buying from companies that import from over seas. Contact a reputable flooring contractor that will insure you get a safe product installed in your home for you and your family.

You could drastically hurt your home if you don’t know what you’re doing regarding repairs and home improvements.

When hiring a licensed contractor to perform a home improvement project on your property, never agree to a repair or home improvement contract that requires full payment before satisfactory completion of all contracted work.

Flooring: Given the client’s allergies, the architect passed on carpets and other soft surfaces that attract allergens and pollutants, and opted instead for terrazzo floors – which don’t off-gas – in the kitchen and living areas. The most radical change came in the bedroom, where he replaced old dust-collecting carpets with stylish concrete floors, using a finish called Milestone. “It’s a top coating that allows us to bring in a custom color and has a mottled finish, so it has some depth to it,” he says. “It’s a very interesting floor surface.” More Info Here   From my experience removing the carpet and padding in your home and installing hardwood floors can definitely ease allergies in your family. Customers have reported breathing better and sleeping better after the carpet was removed. Also the carpet can harbor germs and particulates that can cause you to be ill and you never even know.

The largest remodeling challenge involved maintaining the travertine flooring that ran throughout the home. The mine where the tiles originally came from had been shut down years prior. A handful of new tiles were finally located in Turkey and were tied up in customs for weeks. The existing flooring tiles were surgically removed during demo so that as many as possible could be reused in the final design to minimize color variations inherent in using tiles that were mined at different time points. The final result was a beautiful open floor plan that looks as if it was always a part of the home.
