ProductDragon Skin Anti Fracture MembraneTypeAnti Fracture Membrane Waterproofing MembraneReviewed byTheFloorPro on December 26, 2016RatingPriceSummaryUsing dragon skin anti fracture membrane under your tile or stone can make all the difference in a lasting installation.Installing an anti fracture membrane and waterproofing skin over your sub floor can make all the difference in the world to a lasting tile floor installation. At California Flooring Service we use Dragon Skin from Siena. Below I will discuss a little bit about the anti fracture/waterproofing product. Siena Dragon Skin is a premium, ready to use waterproofing and anti-fracture membrane, manufactured with a mixture of latex polymers and other proprietary additives to produce a high quality elastomeric barrier. Dragon Skin is easily applied using a trowel, a roller, paint brush or a sprayer. Dragon Skin is a light purple color when wet, and changes to a dark purple color to indicate when it is dry. Dragon Skin bonds to most surfaces, dries quickly and is ready to flood test in as little as 24 hours. Dragon Skin exceeds the requirements for ANSI A118.10 for waterproofing membranes and ANSI A118.12 for crack isolation. It can be use in residential, commercial, interior and exterior tile and stone installations. IAPMO has listed Siena Dragon Skin for use as a shower pan liner (IAPMO R&T, File # 6892). Dragon Skin is used on recommended substrates as a barrier to water migration for load bearing thin set tile and stone installation, and as a crack isolation membrane used to prevent shrinkage or on-structural cracks up to 1/8” transmitting from the substrate through to the finished goods. Use polymer modified mortars meeting ANSI A118.4 or A118.11 for tile or stone installation over membrane. So, before having your tile or stone installed ask your contractor about this product. this can really make a difference to promoting the integrity of the installation.

ProductReviewed byTheFloorPro on August 29, 2016RatingPriceSummaryWe just installed this Marazzi wood Look Tile in an Orange County House. The material is 9″ x 36″ and I have to say it looks absolutely amazing. Marazzi tile has a show room in Anaheim and you can go to the showroom and look at all the beautiful samples they have. When you find something you like, you can purchase the material and when it comes time for installation we will come pick it up the day of. Marazzi’s Harmony’s modern exotic wood look lets you make your design passion your lifestyle expression. Four dramatically shaded wood effects reign on an extremely flat surface with a strong porcelain core. Harmony looks like wood but performs better – porcelain is impervious and withstands water as well as freezing conditions when most woods cannot.

ProductArizona Tile Savannah HoneyVersion8″ x 40″TypePorcelain Wood Look TileReviewed byTheFloorPro on February 23, 2016RatingPrice$5.60SummaryThe 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 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.
