What is Lippage?

Here are some examples of travertine lippage. Tile lippage is where you have significant difference in tile height levels between adjacent tiles. This is due to improper installation. This can possibly cause a trip and fall issues, cleaning maintenance issues and of course is un slightly.

At Clean Image of Orlando we do full grinding restoration to remove lippage and restore your floor to desired finish. Take a look at the Travertine Grinding picture gallery to see jobs we have completed.

Sometimes you do not realize how bad your lippage is. The before and after picture shown is the same exact floor with different lighting. Most customers will notice it readily in areas where they have a lot of shearing light, like in front of a sliding glass door in the morning or evening hours. So if your tired of tripping on your tiles, or having difficulty cleaning your stone floors because your flat mop keeps hitting the sides of tiles, maybe it’s time to call Clean Image at 407-298-3132.
The picture on the left shows how tiles can warp, or bow in the center. I have seen this in travertine , marble and limestone tiles. If you look closely you can see the two edges are flush and it raises, or humps up in the middle. The picture on right is a classic lippage problem.
Here are a couple more examples of travertine lippage.
