Ceramic Tile Installation Guides

If you are an avid DIY homeowner, you may be considering a do it yourself ceramic tile installation in your home. If this is the case, here are some quick tips that I have put together to help you with your tile installation. For full instructions on how to install ceramic tile, visit FindAnyFloor.com's Complete Tile Installation Guide.

  • Ensure that your subfloor is clean, dry, and level. High areas can be sanded down and low areas can be filled with a self-leveling compound.
  • Install a concrete backer unit (CBU) on any wood subfloor or over existing flooring for added stability. Failure to use a CBU can result in floor movement and loose or cracked ceramic tiles.
  • For porcelain and ceramic tile installations with grout joints that are larger than 1/8” use sanded grout. For tile installations with joints less than 1/8” use unsanded grout instead.
  • Leave at least 1/2” gap around the perimeter room and every 20’-25’ of tile to allow for expansion and movement.
  • Ceramic tiles are much easier to cut with an electric saw than a hand saw. In addition, you usually will make fewer mistakes with an electric saw, resulting in less tile waste.
  • When installing, mix tiles from different cases to give your floor a more balanced color variation.
  • For tips on installing ceramic tiles using the mortar (thin-set) method view the Do It Yourself Tile Installation Video.

Both brands rely on distinctive features so it’s always immediately possible Panerai Replica to recognize the model as an IWC or a Breitling.
