Effectively reduce the loss of paving tile floor
For tile floors, if the loss is large, the owner's loss may not be small. Many owners are worried that the loss of tiles and floors is too large, but which is a normal loss and which is a malicious loss, and what should be paid attention to in the process of laying tiles and floors so that home improvement does not waste money and feels comfortable? The owner must first understand that loss is inevitable during the construction process. To reduce abnormal loss, we must start from the entire process.
Accept normal wear and tear:
During the installation of tiles and floors, the loss is inevitable. Huang Xiangling explained that since the size of the room does not necessarily match the size of the tiles, it is necessary to cut the tiles. If the cut tiles cannot be used continuously, it will cause loss. According to reports, generally speaking, the overall loss rate of ceramic tiles is between 5% and 10%, which is normal. The owner must first objectively accept the normal concept of loss because it is inevitable in construction.
Normal wear and tear are caused by the following reasons: The size of the house space and the size of the tile demolition do not match. For example, Huang Xiangling said that if the house is 3.65 meters wide, then 600×600 mm tiles are just right, but if the house is 4 meters wide, the remaining 20 cm of tiles will have to be cut off, causing loss. In addition, the larger the size of the selected tiles, the greater the loss. If it is 800 × 800 mm, or 1200 × 1200 mm tiles, the loss of the cut tiles is even greater, and the loss is far more than 10%.
According to the national standard for ceramic tiles, there will be color differences, different thicknesses, irregularities, and warped skin. Even a batch of qualified ceramic tiles will have unqualified products. There are a few substandard products. During construction, there will be a work difference when the tiles are cut, that is, the existence of normal mistakes. It stands to reason that the loss of 2 tiles out of 100 tiles is generally within the normal range. These losses are normal.
Related to this, Wang Qingqiang said that the normal loss of the floor is 5%, and its loss is also related to many factors, such as the shape of the house. If the house has many corners and arcs, the loss is relatively large; the smaller the room, the greater the loss; If the house is very square or the size of the house matches the size of the floor, the loss will be relatively small; in addition, the technical proficiency of the workers will also have a certain impact on the loss, and the skilled workers will roughly measure the house and calculate how to lay it.
Pay attention to abnormal wear and tear:
The abnormal loss also exists in the actual process. According to experts, the abnormal loss of ceramic tiles is mainly caused by improper selection and construction. It is understood that if the quality of the tiles is poor, the possibility of damage during construction will be high, and the loss will inevitably be large; and when the customer cannot accept that the color difference of the tiles is too large, the workers will take the tiles with a large color difference, irregular shape, and warped skin during pre-laying. Come out, if the products that cannot be returned are dealt with at a low price, this loss is very alarming. In the construction operation, if the tiles are accidentally broken during paving, even if the workers are not skilled if the number of broken tiles exceeds 2 in 100 tiles, it is considered to be a malicious loss.
The floor also has abnormal wear and tear. Some workers will waste the floor on purpose, and some workers will cause improper wear and tear due to insufficient skills.
Full monitoring to reduce loss
Experts suggest that to reduce the loss of tiles and floors, the entire process must be grasped. As far as ceramic tiles are concerned, consumers are best to buy qualified products and agree on replacement conditions with merchants, such as whether they can be replenished, returned, replaced, claim conditions and responsibilities, etc. Once there is a problem, they also know how to deal with it; It should also be considered. For an ordinary room of 10-30 square meters, generally, 600×600 mm tiles are enough. You don’t need to choose too large tiles, otherwise, the loss will be greater.
In order to avoid the loss of tiles, it is necessary to supervise the work. Once you find that the worker has cut the tiles and thrown them aside, or broken them, you have to ask them clearly to prevent the workers from wasting them arbitrarily.
As for the floor, the owner should measure the room area accurately before buying the floor, and know how many floors to buy. For example, if the area of u200bu200bthe room is 20.5 square meters, then 5% of the surplus should be added. When buying the floor, it is necessary to buy a floor with a slightly larger area than 20.5×(15%)u003d21.525 square meters. If the final floor area exceeds the budget, please ask clearly Why so much loss. If the owner is worried that the manufacturer is cheating on the floor or is short of weight, he can pay attention to the inspection when ordering the goods. Whether the area, length and width are standard sizes.
In addition, the owner can also supervise the work, and ask the paving workers when they are sawing the floor, why do they need to saw? Where is it used? If it is normal cutting, the workers must be able to explain it clearly; it can also prevent the paving workers from sawing the floor; in addition, consumers can count the floors to find out how many pieces they bought, how many pieces they laid, and how much waste they have. Attrition rate.
