Is it necessary to leave seams in tile paving?


In home life, there are often tile arching, hollowing and falling off. In fact, the main reason for this is that there are no gaps when the tiles are laid. Moreover, many people are hesitant to leave seams when laying tiles, and even many businesses say that there is no need to leave seams. A qualified tile manufacturer must know that tiles must be laid with seams.

Secondly, Why should there be seams in tile paving?

1) Tiles have thermal expansion and contraction problems

Both the ceramic tile and the cement mortar used to paste the tile will have the problem of thermal expansion and contraction. In the process of temperature or humidity changes, the ceramic tile and cement mortar will expand and contract to a certain extent. If no seams are left, it is easy to cause the tiles to bulge or crack during later use.

2) There is human error during construction

Workers will certainly have errors during construction. For example, the mood and state of the workers or the construction time will cause a certain degree of error. If no seams are left, it is also difficult to ensure the straightness of the joints of the tiles, which will affect the aesthetics of the tiles!

1. Leaving seams can prevent the tiles from hollowing, deformation, cracking and even falling off;
