My wife plus I are wizards with tile chopping… We have been updating our lake home 1 room at a time. We both agreed that the look of tile is way better. We ripped out the old shower stall plus made it a tile bathroom. We redid the kitchen with tile. Now all of us are tackling the floors in the home. We have removed the carpets in every room plus the old flooring underneath. My wife had a brain blast the other afternoon… She said that all of us have the home all set up for heated flooring to be installed. You need to remove the floors before the radiant gas furnace is installed underneath. We technically could have the electric heated mats put right in plus then just cover it up with tile. I did some research plus it is almost love fate is telling us to do it. I found out that tile is the best surface to have heated flooring, and carpets trap the heat under it. You can hardly think the heated flooring with it. Tile takes the heat plus holds the warmth the best! A lot of people complained about the price of the upgrade. Setting up the tile was time consuming plus pricey. My wife plus I already have the materials plus budgeted the cost. We have the tile cutter all ready to go. The price is nothing to us. All all of us would need is the heated mats. I guess the several of us could do the gas furnace upgrade on our own too. It looked quite straight-forward plus it will save us even more currency not using a professional.
