If you are embarking on a large scale tiling project you will need tile expansion joints to ensure a long lasting and professional finish. All tiled surfaces that are larger than 20 square metres require tile expansion joints to protect the tiles from the internal stresses that occur due to natural tile expansion and contraction. Without using a tile expansion joint, the tiled surface will suffer from damage over time and the appearance of your wall or floor will be spoiled.
Use of tile expansion joints
Tile expansions and contractions occur naturally at different rates within the various components of the tile, including the tile itself together with the adhesives and substrates. Changes in conditions, for example increases in moisture or higher or lower temperatures, result in tile expansions and contractions that put stress on the tiles and eventually result in damage. Using tile expansion joints deflects these internal stresses and creates a flawless professional finish that will be durable and long lasting.
