Ceramic Tile & Stone Specifications: Critical Issues

Interior designers, specifiers and managers know that it's the details that make the difference between "good" and "great" projects. Any major component of the work done poorly becomes noticeable and can be the source of conflict or the cause of a lost client. Clear, concise and accurate specifications are critical to achieving the design intent of any tile or stone project. They enable the design professioinal to achieve the desired appearance at the optimal balance of cost and quality. They allow the tile setter to understand exactly what is wanted, and they provide a reference to ensure that the work provided is in keeping witht hte design concept.

This program, scheduled Wednesday, October 15th, discusses how to specify ceramic tile and stone using the TCNA Handbook. The presentation includes critical specification issues such as lippage, expansion joints, sound and crack isolation. It will also cover how to integrate the TCNA Handbook installation guideelines onto construction documents.
