How To Lay Floor Tiles

Tile installation & fixing is an arduous task, & requires precautionary steps. here is a checklist of safety measures needed for the tiling process.

  
1
Choose tiles that suit the room size and the style of your home. Smaller spaces are suited for bigger and pale-coloured tiles to increase size and ventilation levels, but many kitchen and bathroom spaces have smaller tiles.
2
Prioritize your tile top preparation through proper soil layer compaction, subfloor levelling, completing brick and plasterwork, and waterproofing to protect your tiles from water seepage and long-term deterioration.
3
Check that surface is smooth and structurally-sound before beginning tile fixing work, and ensure that the site has there is proper lighting and ventilation.
4
Tiles should be set at right angles and corners should not get bent. Prepare a ready mix cement plaster, in advance, by mixing water and mortar in a 1:6 ratio – follow this proportion to prevent cement joints from shrinking. Also, maintain minimal joints between two tiles and wipe off excess joints.
5
Tiles should be placed equidistant to each other.
Fill in joints with cement grout once installed.
6
Post installation, clean the tiling area with a
wet mop and sweep the area post installation.
Floors with newly installed tiles should
remain untouched for at least a week post
fixing.
7
Conduct tile fixing with proper supervision
to prevent defects such as cracks, breaking,
and de-bonding, which can later incur
extra costs.Tiling expenses should ideally
be covered in one stage of your
homebuilding.
