Level floors and walls are almost impossible to find in most homes, especially those homes that have been around for a while and have since settled. But the problem with floors and walls that aren’t level is that they can make tile installation a complete nightmare.
Uneven wall and floor conditions make it almost impossible to properly set tiles, and as a result, tiles that appear level during installation often show discrepancies in height only after the adhesive cures.
But the Raimondi Tile Leveling System prevents this problem from occurring. It makes installation quicker, and it eliminates the often-needed process of grinding to remove lippage.
The Raimondi Tile Leveling System comes with breakaway leveling clips, leveling wedges, and adjustable tension pliers. The system follows a three-stage process, which includes setting the supports, inserting the wedges, and removing the supports.
To set the supports, you need to spread the tile adhesive, and then insert the leveling clips underneath the tile and along the tile’s four sides. Depending on the tile’s size, you may need to use more than one clip on each side. Set the tile to the adhesive and beat it with a rubber mallet to set it in place.
The wedges are then carefully inserted into the support slot. When inserting the wedges, be careful you don’t push them past their breaking point. The adjustable pliers may come in handy during this process.
Once the adhesive sets, separate the protruding part of the support from the base and use the rubber mallet or pliers to remove the support.
The Raimondi Tile Leveling System is suitable for use on minimum joint sizes of 1.5 mm, and tile thicknesses ranging from 3 mm to 12 mm.
There are several reasons why using the Raimondi Tile Leveling System helps you achieve better results in your tile project. For starters, when using this system, the tiles are pushed, not lifted, and this creates a much stronger tile adhesion.
It is also very easy to learn, so the installation process will be quicker, thus allowing you to finish your installation in a fraction of the normal time. But most importantly, the system’s innovative interlocking leveling clips and wedges help to ensure that your floor or wall will be level from one tile to the next, while at the same time preventing tiles from settling and/or warping as the adhesive cures.
The Raimondi Tile Leveling System is one of the most effective solutions available to help you achieve your dream of installing a perfectly flat and level tile floor or wall.
