A different kind of tile requires a different kind of installation. At Heath, we pride ourselves on our perfectly imperfect tile and the great things it can do for a space. But we also know that a handcrafted tile deserves a more handcrafted installation to take maximum advantage of its beauty and to achieve its artful potential.
We’ve gotten to know many incredible installers over the last few years and one of the best is Ted Calvert. An artist by training, Bay Area-based Ted has been working with tile, and specifically Heath tile, since 2002. In that time, he’s learned both the art and science of working with handcrafted tile.
We asked Ted to share some of his most important tips.
