Hi
I have now installed and grouted the avaire tile a few days ago in my bath.I have caulked around the tub. I now notice a loud squeak when walking over the tiles by the tub. What do I do?!! This bathroom is on the second floor also.

Squeaky floors are normally due to something rubbing on something. If the sound is coming from next to the tub or wall it might be the tile too close to the wall or tub. If it's in the floor itself there may be a high or low area that is causing the movement. let me know if the noise is at the wall or tub or if it's on the floor and we'll look at options. Thanks

Hi Chris
I think that I am too close to the tub. I don't see the tile rubbing on the tub,but I think that might be it. I am going to remove the caulk and see if I still hear and I think I might remove that one tile and see what I can do. Let me know if you have any more ideas.

If after you remove the caulk and determine you're too close to the tub, maybe just move the whole floor an 1/8'' rather than remove tile. Thats only if it's not too large of and area, 50 sq ft or less. let me know what you find. Thanks

Hi Chris
The floor is already grouted. I assumed you meant this if it was not grouted? I just had too much caulk packed in there and will caulk again on top of the tile. There is still caulk in between just not packed in as tightly as it was.

Just to let you know I used a little less caulk and it fixed my problem. Thanks!!
