Home Dynamix Vinyl Floor Tiles - Porcelain tile flooring or ceramic is very durable as well as a great investment in your home. Tiles never wear out, and virtually will last forever when they have been taken good care of.
Remove any existing floor coverings, carpeting, or wooden floors. Clean the subfloor making sure it is free of debris and dust. Make sure that the floor is stable and tough. Install cement backer board onto the stabilized floor and the backer board in with 2 inches, at each floor joist screw galvanized screws. The old flooring should be disposed of, and most trash services do not pick up such items.
Work with a chalk line to indicate two lines that intersect at the center of the area. Be sure the lines are square to every other (90 degrees). Lay a row of tiles along both lines on the dry floor. Look at the way the tiles are arranged; you want as many whole tiles in the center as you possibly can. Before you are satisfied with the way they are placed fiddle with the tile.
Use thin set to hold your tiles in place. Make use of a notched trowel. Spread the thin-set only to as far as you can reach and put a tile. Install your tiles to the inset with a firm downward pressure. Don't forget to place spacers between the tiles. It's possible for you to tap on the tile gradually to make certain that it is in place. Begin at the center and work out to the walls. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed last.
