How Do I Install Ceramic Tile?

Answer:
Ceramic floor tile is available in many different styles

and colors, and if you take your time, it is a relatively easy job to do. The key is to have a solid underlayment, or they will crack easily.

The first step is to install cement boards over the subfloor by spreading carpenter’s glue on the back of the boards and pressing them into place. Every few feet on the surface of the board, use galvanized screws to secure the board into position. Lay the boards in staggered rows. Then, spread thinset mortar over the seams between the boards with a knife and spread them smooth. Allow this to set overnight.

Using a chalk line, lay a line across the middle of the floor in both directions to mark the center of the room. You should now have four sections in the room. In the corner of one of the sections, spread thinset mortar using your notched trowel. Now, press the first tile into place. Put spacers around the tile, and then continue to lay your tiles. After laying all the tile, remove the spacers and allow then to set overnight. Your partial tiles should go around the edges.

Your grout should be the consistency of thick mud, and you will want to spread it using a grout float. After it has sat in the cracks for a few minutes, use a damp sponge to wipe off the excess with a damp sponge. Let the grout sit for two days before using the floor.
