Tarkett Nafco Luxury Tile Flooring - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is very durable as well as a great investment in your home. Tiles will continue forever when they are looked after, and virtually never wear out. If you are preparing to put in the tile flooring you'll need to get the ceramic or porcelain tiles, cement backer board, tile nippers, sponges, tape measure, knee pads, tile cutter or tile saw, grout, square, rubber float, chalk line, a great deal of water, eye protection, thin set, pails, hammer, notched trowel, and nails.
You'll need to remove all the molding and baseboards. Eliminate, carpet, or wooden floorings. Clean the subfloor making sure it's free of debris and dust. Make sure that the flooring is tough and stable. The old flooring will have to be disposed of, and things that are such are not picked up by most rubbish services.
Use a chalk line to mark two lines that intersect at the center of the region. Be sure that the lines are square to each other (90 degrees). Put a row of tiles along both lines on the floor that was dry. Place spacers between the tiles, leaving enough room. Look at just how the tiles are arranged; you want as many whole tiles in the centre as you possibly can. Until you're happy with the way they can be placed fiddle with the tile.
Use thin set to hold your tiles in position. Use a notched trowel to spread the thin set. Disperse the thin-set merely to as far as you are able to comfortably reach and lay a tile. Install your tiles into the inset using a strong downward pressure. Remember to put spacers between the tiles. You're able to tap the tile on the corners gently to make sure that it's in place. Border tiles and the cut tiles are installed last.
