Tiling On The Water

This is a barge floating on the marina at Beach 59th Street in Far Rockaway. Its a 2 story home with 3 room and a bathroom that we tiled for the owner.

We could not use a level because the barge rocks in the water. So we had to utilized a different form of measurement to install tile in a straight form. We tiled two walls and mud job for the floor.

This a view of the top. A window will be added; from the floor to the ceiling is over 8 feet high. The white tile is 24″ x 12″ while the floor is penny round floor tiles in black with dark gray grout.

Here is an shot of the penny round black floor tiles with dark gray grout. The white black and gray contract gives this a beautiful old time look.

Convert From Small To Larger Shower Area –  Brooklyn NY

We eliminated a small shower and bath tub in the bedroom bathroom and installed a larger shower area.  We installed a tiled niche with glass accent tiles as a trim, and black octagon floor tiles. We had to install a granite top and side of the outside wall in the shower to prevent water from going outside the shower area.  We used a 2 inch by 7 inch long white ceramic tile with the subway brick pattern.  A glass accent tile was use just to bring out the beauty of this new bathroom shower area.

New Bathroom And Tiled Floor – Broad Channel NY

Broad Channel is located between Rockaway and Howard Beach. This area was also victimized by super storm Sandy.  Four feet of the plasterboard walls had to be removed.  The bathroom was gutted and the existing floor tiles were damaged and had to be removed due to prior poor installation.  We installed new tiles in the bathroom and 330 square feet of floor tiles.  See the results for yourself.

Mud Job Walk-In Level – Howard Beach NY

Super storm “Sandy” came into Howard Beach NY and flooded many low areas of Howard Beach.  If you have a walk-in basement and you live in Howard Beach, you had a flood anywhere from six inches to six feet of water.  Basements were gutted literally to bare walls and the streets were littered with mountains of damage basement  contents.  This basement was raised from the cement floor with wood studs and plywood.  All the wood had to be ripped out and a mud job had to be added to the existing cement floor to level the difference of 2 1/2 inches from one end to the other.

The pictures will show a mud job and porcelains tiles installed to give the basement a wood floor look.  Look carefully to see if it wood or tiles.  Needless to say there are two home owners in Howard Beach who has the best looking basement  in the area.  Look at the pictures for yourself.

New Bathroom Replacement – Howard Beach NY

The bathroom we found was constructed after World War Two utilizing the old “mud job” procedures of building a bathroom.  The walls were plaster, uneven and not leveled.  The back wall of the bathroom had a metal wall vent that is used as an exhaust vent, very ugly and painted pink.  The tiles were 4″ x 4″, pink with black wall caps.  We removed all the tiles, removed the mildew walls and repaired the walls with cement.  We then went to work like a doctor operating on a sick patient.  The pictures will show the new bathroom with a custom made (by us) exhaust vent made from a ceramic tile.  That is the difference between Tile Repair Specialists and someone who thinks they can do tiles every now and then!

Bathroom Repaired – Middle Village NY

The owner made it clear; “I don’t want to spend a lot of money for a new bathroom repair”.  And she did not.  We used the same tub, toilet, vanity, and sheet rock walls outside the bathtub area.  We removed the water damaged wooden floor and walls around the bathtub area and replaced them with new 1/2 inch cement backer-boards, floor and walls.  The ceramic tiles size 12″ x 8″ were installed using the brick-look effect.  This gave the bathroom a much needed new look.  The old exhaust fan was replaced along with a new one handler shower body.  The old ceramic toilet paper holder was replaced with a new chrome holder.  Matching plastic tile trim was installed all around the bathroom to give the ceramic tiles a finishing look.  Matching ceramic floor tiles size 13″ x 13″ were installed giving this bathroom the “new face lift” it badly needed!

The kitchen wood floor ( 180 square feet) was exposed before any installation was performed.  We installed 13 (3′ x 5′) cement backer-boards 1/2/ inch thick over the wooden floors using 1 1/4 inch long screws made especially for this cement board.  The porcelain floor tiles (3/8 inch thick) has a non-slip ruff surface and is very durable for this heavy traffic area.  A 4 inch wide porcelain tile was installed as a boarder all around the kitchen walls giving a rich looking finish for this kitchen tile floor.  A wooden trim was installed over the porcelain tiles separating the living room wooden floor from the kitchen porcelain tile floor.

New Bathroom – Howard Beach NY

The old bathroom had a yellow tub, and yellow wall and floor ceramic tiles.  Everything was removed including the wooden window.  The bathroom floor was a little weak so we installed 2/3 inch thick plywood over the existing bathroom floor.  After the new tub was installed, 1/2 inch thick cement backer board was installed all round the bath tub area including the ceiling.  Plastic molding was installed around the vinyl window to prevent any molding or the window rotting away.  One row of a ceramic tile trim was installed all around the ceramic tile walls to beautify the bathroom look.  Plastic tile trim was used to hide the ceramic tile edge for all outside corners.  New closet and entrance doors, mirror medicine cabinet, bathroom lights and electrical outlets were all installed making this new bathroom a welcome sight for this old house.
