Your initiative of installing the garage floor tiles will provide long lasting results only if you are aware of the pre requisites of installation of floor tiles. The first thing that must be kept in mind before you start fixing up the tiles is to ensure that the floor surface is not uneven. As, the uninformed floor will have abruptness and the uneven surface will not be able to hold the floor tiles for a longer time, and you can observe that the floor tiles will get detached or break off easily. If, you want to avoid such circumstances, you should prepare the base with the help of self levelling compound before installing the floor tiles.

Once you finish with construction of the new home or repair an old one, the last thing that is left to be done is panting the interior and exterior walls, which will help you to hide the patches and cover up the rough and dull walls with attractive colours, and help providing them smoother looks. However, you should not fail to cover the walls with primer and apply at least three coats of wall paint to get the long lasting result. The same procedure has to follow while applying the roof tile paint. However, if you are going to paint the old roof tiles, you need to clean them thoroughly, and remove the old paint, and clear up the accumulated of dust and moss with the help of sand paper. You should start painting the roof tiles only after ensuring that you have cleaned them up and washed out the traces of dust particles. It is an essential activity if you want that the roof tile paint must adhere to the tile surface effectively.

By now, you must have understood that self levelling compound plays almost the same role that is played by wall fillers before you start painting them. If, you are seriously interested in installing the garage floor tiles in the parking area, driveways or garages, you should select the best quality of floor tiles that can bear the strains of heavy vehicular traffic. Besides this, you must ensure that the flooring contractor has fair knowledge about the importance of self levelling compound and he uses it to level the entire area in a rightful manner. More often, the screed and self levelling compound is used for proving a strong base on which you can fix up the ceramic tiles, rubber floor tiles, floor mats, and carpets.

It is true that if you want to decorate your home from top to bottom, you will have to take special care while selecting the wall and roof tile paint, because the wall paint must match up well with the colour of roof tiles. Also, you must also take care that the roof tiles must be painted beforehand and then you should start painting the exterior walls if you want to avoid staining of walls with the roof tile paint. However, a skilled person might not mess up the things even if he paints the roof tiles at the end, but it is always good to take precautions beforehand.
