As fall is getting closer and closer, I have looked back at the wonderful summer we have had. This past summer we have had more phone calls about outdoor tile installations then I can remember having in all our previous years combined.
I think a big part of this is the 2cm porcelain tiles that seem to be popping up everywhere. These products look great and seem to be a perfect match for the climate we have in Calgary. The pedestal installation system of these products minimizes the risk of damage due to ice damming and frost heaving, As well these products are exceptionally durable, easy to clean and maintain.
These 2cm products are not the only option however for outdoor tile installation. Given the right circumstances and with the proper prep many other porcelain tiles can be installed outdoors in Calgary. With products such as Schluter Ditra Drain as well as Duradek Tile Dek we are able to bring the beauty of indoors to your outdoor surfaces.
