Tile flooring in Gulf Breeze, FL from Gene's Floor Covering

Is mortar always needed when installing tile flooring?

In the past, ceramic and porcelain tile flooring was fastened to the subfloor with mortar and joined with grout, which comes in various colors that enhance a tile wall or floor.

Today, some clay-based tiles are designed to be installed without mortar, and these styles are found at Gene's Floor Covering. In addition, we have showrooms in Pensacola and Gulf Breeze, FL.

Floating tile flooring

Floating floors are self-supporting and need no attachment to a subfloor. Installers can click and lock manufactured flooring materials together for several years to construct a floor.

Now, tiles made of natural materials are designed with unique locking systems, too. Increased versatility is the most obvious benefit of these new tile flooring designs.


Daltile manufactures tiles that do not require mortar during the installation process, which means a tile floor can be installed and grouted the same day.

RevoTile, which features ClicFit technology, can be laid over many existing hard surface floors. In addition, digital print technology creates porcelain tile flooring that displays realistic wood, stone, marble, and concrete looks.

Key benefits

With RevoTile, installers place underlayment on the subfloor or existing floor, click the tiles together, and apply grout. The tiles are waterproof and dent-proof as well as slip, scratch, stain, and fire resistant.

As a result, tile acclimation to a new environment is not needed, tear-out is hassle-free when it comes time to update, and tiles are easy to remove for repair if a mishap occurs.
