Tile

Definition

When you fit individual tiles together with no gaps or overlaps to fill a flat space like a ceiling, wall, or floor, you have a tiling. You can imagine that you can use a variety of shapes to do this.
PREPARATION OF THE SURFACE
1.        Make sure your surface is clean smooth.
2.        And level any damaged or uneven areas double check to make sure the surface is structurally sound.
·       BIGING YOUR LAYOUT
1.       For an efficient layout, start by marking the center point of each of the walls in the room.
2.       Next snap chalk lines between the centers points of opposite walls to pinpoint the center of the room.
3.       Make any necessary adjustment to ensure that the intersection creates perfect squares.
4.       Starting at the center to center point ,lay a raw of loose tiles along the center  lines in both direction ,using tiles spacers as you go to for even uniform joint once you reach the walls ,you’ll need to cut tiles for a proper fit.


·       APPLY THE ADHESIVE
1.       As a general rule of thumb , be mindful mix only enough of mindful to mix only  enough of the adhesive to be used within 30 min .using the flat side of the trowel type  recommended on the adhesive package spread a 1/4coat on the surface of one grid area without covering the guidelines.
2.       After doing so, hold the trowel at a 45-degree angle and use the notched side to comb adhesive into standing ridges .when you remove the excess adhesive ,you level behind a uniform , ridged setting bed for your tile
3.       As another rule of thumb, do not spread a larger area of your adhesive than can be set in 15 min.
4.       Stick to the script and facilitate your tile installation with the perfect adhesive application.


·       CUT TILE AS NEEDED
1.          Start by marking carefully measured cute –to –be with a pencil or felt-tip pen on the tile surface you can use tile cutter to achieve pin point straight or diagonal cuts with a nipper chipping away small pieces for best result.
2.          For any full-length curved cuts, a rod saw is most properly suited to handle the task. After your cuts are made smooth out any sharp edges with a carborundum stone to give a soft finish to your tile.
·       SET YOUR TILE
1.       Now that you’ve primed the surface created the surface created the layout, applied the adhesive and cut the tile you are fully prepared for the actual installation of your tile.
2.       Now u r fully prepared for the actual installation of your tile.
3.       Begin by installing tiles in the center of room, one grid at the time, finishing each grid before moving to next.
4.       Within each grid, it will help to start with the first tile in the corner and work outward.
5.       Using a slight twisting motion, set tiles one at a time and avoid sliding them into place.
6.       Be sure to either insert spacers as each tile is set or leave equal joints between tiles.
7.       Save the perimeter tiles in each grid for last, leaving gap between the tile and wall.
8.    Remove excess adhesive from joints with the putty knife and from tiles with a damp sponge to prevent   an uneven appearance.                                                               

·         GROUTING JOINTS
1.       Tile is in place and has had 24hrs to set, your last step is to “GROUT” or fill the joints and consolidate your floors into one mass.
2.       After carefully reading and following all instructions and precautions on the grout package, make only enough to use in a 30min period.
3.       As you remove the tiles spacers and spread grout on the tile surface, use a rubber grout float or a squeegee to force it down into the joints.
4.       Tilt the float at a 45-degree angle and with the edge of the float; remove the excess grout from the surface immediately.
5.       Now tilt the float at 90-degree angle and scrape it diagonally across the tiles.
6.       Once you’ve let the grout set slightly for around 15-20 min, use a damp sponge to clean any residue from the surface and smooth the grout joints.
7.       Make sure to rinse your sponge frequently and change the water when needed.
8.       Polish with a soft cloth when the grout has dried and haze forms on the tile surface, and rinse again with sponge clean water if necessary.
9.       Give your newly grouted floor 72hrs before any heavy use and at least 3 weeks before applying sealers or polishes.
