Why Contractor Grade Tile Tools Are Worth It (Contd.)

Contractor grade tile tools are a little more money, but they make all the difference in the world. And, really, the greatest cost for any tiling job is always the materials. Spending a little more on your tools will save you money on the project as a whole, as you won’t have to make another trip to the store for more tile.

Tile Cutters and Professional Grade Tile Tools

Furthermore, higher quality tile cutters will be able to handle a greater variety of tile shapes, allowing you to get creative with the job. So whether you want to use a wet saw or piano cutter, hand held or overhead, it always pays to go with contractor grade tools.

Grouting Tools
Grouting – and, if you’re re-tiling, removing grout – is one of the more tedious parts of any tiling projects. With the right tools, this phase will go quickly and look great when it’s done. Not all grout floats are created equal. With the right grade of rubber, you’re much more likely to avoid scratching or staining your new tiles as you spread the grout and clean it away. For tiles with larger grooves, a good striking tool is indispensable for making the grout look smooth and concave.

Professional Grade Tile Tools and Removing Grout

Grout is like the icing on the cake: the tiles may look great, but if the grouting is done poorly, the room will look terrible. There is no better way to ruin the aesthetic of a room than having lines that aren’t level: if it’s at all visible it will look sloppy, and if it’s bad enough, the tiles won’t fit the scheme. To ensure straight lines, do what contractors do: use a laser level. Bubble levels may work for hanging a photo on the wall, but for something as important as your tiling, spend the money, and do it right.

The removal of grout is more dependent on the tools you use, particularly if you installed it well the first time. A good grout removal fitting for an oscillating drill will be able to get into more places than its low-grade counterpart. In this sense, getting a reliable contractor-grade tool can replace more than one consumer-grade tool.

Above all else, you want the best tools for whatever your tiling project is.  Whether those tools are diamond tools or simple cutters, go for the best.
