As a pro tile installer, tile lippage is one of the worst things to happen to you. A slightly uneven floor or material problem can compromise the entire project if you’re not careful. One of the most common mistakes contractors and DIYers make is not using a tile leveling system to prevent tile lippage. Not only that the difference in height between the edges of the adjacent tiles is aesthetically unappealing, but it can also turn into a tripping hazard.
Tile lippage is the vertical displacement between the edges of two adjoining tiles. Simply put, the tiles are set at different levels, meaning that they are spaced evenly in width, but not in height.
Not only that it looks bad, but lippage can also lead to numerous problems. Damaged tiles are one of the most common one as carts or other objects hit it as they run over the edges. Lippage can also be a safety hazard, especially for people who use a walker.
Easy to use & easy to clean up. The clips have the perfect amount of give. Also, I like the box instead of the bag so we can keep track of the wedges until the next job.
These make my job easier and I can set plank tiles without hassle. We will continue to use these for our projects!
I don't set tile without them now. And the price can't be beat.
