Why need to leave seams when paving tiles? (part I )

- Jul 11, 2018 -

It has become an industry consensus to lay tiles with seams, but for some owners, it does not seem to be a matter of principle. Do you want to leave a seam? Make your own decision after reading the following 10 points.


Seen from the paving effect:

1. Retaining seams can effectively avoid empty drum problems


Tiles in an objective environment will exhibit thermal expansion and contraction due to significant changes in temperature and humidity. If the tile joints are too small, stress may be generated between adjacent tiles, resulting in empty drums.

2. Retaining seams can reduce the angle of arching, etc.


In addition to thermal expansion and contraction, the cement mortar will also exert a force during the drying process. If the gap between the tiles is insufficient, the force exceeds the limit, and the adjacent tiles will be pressed against each other to arch and warp.


3. Retaining seams can reduce the impact of manual errors


Tiles paving is a technical activity, because manual operation is not completely accurate, so proper seaming can provide workers with adjustment space. The tilelayer can reduce the subsequent influence by adjusting the width of the tile to ensure visual effect. If no seams are left, the final flatness and seams are prone to irregularities.

4. Appropriate seams can enhance aesthetics


In fact, the seams of the tiles are more in line with the aesthetic level of the average person, and can enhance the layering and three-dimensionality of the paving effect. In particular, some antique tiles, exterior wall tiles, cultural tiles, etc. that pursue special effects need to be widened.

In the case of caulking materials


5. Beautiful grouts are rich in color and better physical properties


In the past, ceramic tile caulking materials were generally white cement mixed caulks, which were single in color and easy to be dirty.
As the caulking material continues to improve, the color of the tile seam is more varied, which basically meets the color matching needs of the tile. Secondly, the physical properties of the caulking agent, the beautiful sewing agent, the beautiful sewing glue are also greatly improved, and it is not easy to have problems such as being dirty, yellow, and mildew.
