The construction industry has been changing a lot in the past few years. In all aspects of the construction, no part has been left untouched. For instance, floors are now being tiled a fact that was not experienced years ago when all was applied was just plaster. When it comes to doors, today we are having electrical doors where you have to insert a code for you to be allowed in. In terms of roofing, special types of metalized roofs which are able to last for more than 10 years have been introduced. This article will concentrate more on the floor part.
Tiles are one of the most common components that are often seen in all floors. It is therefore evident that tiles make any house look better than the traditional flooring. When tiles were introduced, it became particularly difficult to for individuals who do stair nosing. This is because the appropriate input to be used in nosing did not look good on it. Therefore, when rubber stair nosing for a tiled floor was introduced, things changed amicably.
Stair nosing is a technology that is used to make the house look better while still protecting it from wear and tear. The technology involves placing something at the edge of every stair. This is important because it has been proven that when a stair is used for a long time without nosing being done, chances are that it won’t be able to survive for a very long time before it starts wear and tear. There are other types of materials that are used for nosing such as plastic and metal. However, in tiled stairs, rubber has been found to be more useful.
There are a number of reasons why rubber is used when conducting a stair nosing for a tiled floor. One, rubber is a very durable material. As a result, it will take many years before thinking to replace it. Also, rubber is relatively cheap to acquire as compared to other materials which can be used. Lastly, rubber comes in different colours and designs which make it possible to come up with an amicable design to suit any kind of a house whether residential or commercial.
However, rubber too is ‘not God’. By this I mean that it is not perfect. One very important challenge faced by rubber stir nosing for a tiled floor is finding the exact rubber to match the entire floor. Say for instance, if you put a tile of a particular colour in an house, it will be a must for you to put matching rubber. What if your supplier does not have the colour that you need? This will be a challenge.
Lastly, it is important to note that there are many construction companies out there. Many of them have not hired experts in dealing with stair nosing. In this article, it has been found to be very important to hire an excellent team to conduct these services. Therefore, when you are dealing with a contractor, ensure that he has a good stairs team with a proven record of performance.
