Grouting Shower Tile Floor


Grouting Shower Tile Floor - Porcelain tile flooring or ceramic is extremely durable and also an excellent investment at home. Tiles will last forever when they're taken care of, and practically never wear out. If you are getting ready to set up the tile flooring you will 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, lots of water, eye protection, thin set, pails, hammer, notched trowel, and nails.

Remove, carpeting, or wooden floorings. Clean the subfloor making sure it's free of dust and debris. Make sure that the flooring is stable and tough. Install cement backer board onto the stabilized flooring and at every floor joist screw, the backer board in with 2 inches galvanized screws. The old flooring will need to be disposed of, and such items are not picked up by most garbage services.


Utilize a chalk line to indicate two lines that intersect in the middle of the area. Make sure the lines are square to each other (90 degrees). Look at the way the tiles are arranged; you need as many whole tiles in the center as you possibly can. Before you are happy with the way they can be positioned, fiddle with all the tile.

Use thin set to hold your tiles in place. Use a notched trowel. Disperse the thin-set merely to as far as you can comfortably reach and put a tile. Install your tiles into the inset with a strong downward pressure. Remember to put spacers between the tiles. You can exploit on the tile gradually to be sure that it is in place. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed.
