Top Tiling Tips For The Beginner

By Steve Hinks

Tiling wall and floor surfaces has become an increasingly popular method of adding a clean and attractive finish to the modern home.Tiling done well and the results can look stunning and last for many years. Below is a collection of our top tiling tips for those new to tiling:

1) Planning floor tiling

<br>Like most {house betterment} tasks – planning is the key. Fail to plan and you plan to fail. Thinking long and hard about the best approach, how to achieve a satisfactory job with the least amount of cuts will save countless tile breaks not to mention hours of stress.

2) Calculating the area of flooring to cover with tiles.

It’s always a good idea to spend some time properly calculating the surface area of the floor and checking your calculating several times. Once you’ve settled on the number of tiles needed add another 5 – 10% as you’ll nearly always crack some, plus you’ll have a few spares if damage to a tile happens at a later date.

3) Prepare the surface for tiling

One of the most important issues is to clean and smooth the surface to which the tiles will be applied. Loose or flaky walls should be sorted before tiling. Also any evidence of wallpaper should be removed. Check surfaces are reasonably level…unevenness will show more when tiled and lead to irregular gaps between.

4) Levelling with battens

One great tip is to use battens to help get tiles straight, especially the first row – horizontally or vertically. As a minimum a straight pencil line will help but the batten will do the job much better especially if the area that you are covering is fairly large.

5) Adhesive

Adhesive the key component to good and long lasting tiles. If water or humidity is likely, such as kitchens and bathrooms etc, waterproof adhesive should be an obvious consideration

6) Check your work as you go

One great tip is to regularly stand back from your work and to get a fresh set of eyes to look over it. Once the adhesive and / or grout has set you’ll find that fixing mistakes can take an age. If spotted early enough it should be possible to re-jig tiles or remove and re-fix in order to make good.

7) Grouting

Grout should be applied over small areas at a time so as to avoid the grout drying too quickly over areas you’ve not yet smoothed or cleaned. Applied with a squeegee type spreader it should be possible to move swiftly but spending time cleaning as you go will save you hours, rather than leaving it until the grout is dry.

Making certain excess grout is removed will give an overall better looking finished to the tiled surface. The opposite is always a dead giveaway of an amateur job.

8) Sealing around baths and sinks

Good silicone based sealant should be applied to the necessary areas. Don’t relay on the grout to produce a watertight seal, as its only really good where water runs quickly off.

The Chief Tiling Tools

By Christa Kowalczyk

The tile cutter, tile saw, tile nipper, and trowel are the chief tools needed in order to come up with successful tiling projects.

Most tiling projects are easily and successfully done by having the appropriate tools and knowing how to use them correctly. Here’s a list of the chief tools that you can’t do without in your next tiling assignment.

Tile Cutters

The tile cutter is a tool designed for cutting and breaking tiles, typically of simple, straight forms and on tiles with up to around 9/16 inches thick. Tile cutters are available in variety of types, from the common, manually operated ones to complicated attachments for power tools. These tools are lightweight, small, low-priced, easy, and safe to use. However, they are relatively slow and produce rather limited forms of cuts. Tile cutters are ideal for small do it yourself tiling jobs that don’t require weighty tile saws.

A tile cutter is basically a level, stuffed metal assembly which features a cutter head with a scoring wheel and an overhead arm. As the cutter head is pushed down, the scoring wheel touches the top side of the tile, then it is drawn again and again on top of the tile to create a mark. As added force is put on the cutter head, the tile will break along the mark.

Tile Saw

The wet tile saw is designed to meet the distinct quality of ceramics. It is a tool normally used for large application that calls for more than plain, straight cuts. It’s a lot different from conventional wood saw as conventional saws have the tendency to snap the tile or would overheat and cease cutting. The tile saw normally includes the motor as well as blade set in an overhead stance. It uses a sliding table or sawhorse that can be repositioned manually to shift the tile which is beneath the blade. Underneath the table is a tank made of plastic or metal that carries the water and a water pump to lead the cooling water onto the blade.

In using a tile saw, the tile is set on the sliding table and clasped either with a clamp or manually. As the blade is set in one stand, you can cut the tile at a desired angle by holding it on the sliding table. A tile saw lets users to cut quicker and more precise than a tile cutter plus the edges of cut tiles are smoother and neater.

Tile Nipper

The tile nipper is invented to create spherical cuts in tiles. It can be applied to produce angle or straight cuts but it’s a lot easier to employ a tile cutter or tile saw to create these cut types. Since pointed fragments of the ceramic tile can burst from the cut and may cause injury, goggles and other safety glasses need to be worn while cutting.

If you are mounting tiles on a countertop, it is quite trouble-free to mark the ceramic tile that needs to be cut. Although there are instances that marking the tile directly is impossible. In this instance, a template made of cardboard is required and you can transfer the markings to the ceramic tile.

Trowel

The trowels are everyday tools employed in gardening and construction applications. They are manipulated to dig, spread, scoop, and situate. Trowels come in assorted sizes and shapes, and generally feature a metal blade (of various shapes) fixed to a short handle. Some trowels are flat and others are arced.

Notched trowels are the ones used in ceramic tile installation. They provide a bead design which produce uniformity in material’s thickness and complete contact with the tile after beating in. These trowels are obtainable in scoop, v-shaped, rectangular, and square types. Rectangular and square trowels are utilized to put thin set mortar to tiles. Scoop, v-notch and square trowels are used for spreading tile adhesives such as grout and cement.

You can acquire tile cutters, tile saws, tile nippers, and trowels at different rates and in multiplicity of styles, depending on its applications. These tiling tools can be bought through tile shops, tool vendors, and home depots.

Make Your Own Yellow Brick Road: Redoing Walkway With Brick Paving

By MrMasonry

There is a reason that the most famous road in musical entertainment is made of brick: because it is durable, easy to replace, versatile in terms of style and designs, and affordable. Before considering brick paving for your next walkway or patio, let’s look at some of the reasons why it’s the smart choice for any project.

Where can you Use Brick Paving?

Bricks can be used for almost any paving project. While concrete is still a popular choice, many homeowners are turning to brick as an option for patios, garden walkways, sidewalks and even driveways. The appeal of brick over concrete is the aesthetic draw. Brick just looks nicer. It lends a more natural feel to walkways. Because of it’s cozy and natural character,brick paving is also a nice accent around flower beds, backyard ponds, and hardscapes. In short, this type of paving can be used anywhere you might need a strong reliable surface.

Durability

Bricks are an incredibly durable material. Whether you choose to pave with clay bricks or manufactured ones, you are still choosing a dense, thick paving material that can withstand great amounts of pressure, weathering, and extreme conditions like wind, hail, and fire. Bricks will also hold up well under the occasional lawnmower, as long as they are laid out flatly and evenly.

Easy to Replace

Although brick is incredibly durable, individual bricks will occasionally crack or break. When this happens, they are easy and affordable to replace. If a concrete patio cracks, on the other hand, you must re-pour the whole slab in order to mend it. With a brick patio or walkway, you merely need to replace the broken bricks to restore the original design and construction.

Versatility with brick laying

Brick paving is also a wonderful choice because of the many colors and designs it offers. You can choose traditional red bricks for your walkway, or you can really push the limits and build mosaic designs into your projects. Gray, bed, black, and yellow are just some of the colors available. Bricks come in a variety of shapes, as well. Choose from square, round, rectangular, curved quarter-moon, and a number of other shapes, too. To add even greater variety, don’t lock yourself into selecting only one color, shape or style. Why not mix and match? Custom-fit bricks can be used to make zig-zag or geometrical designs. With all this versatility, there is no limit to what you can design and build with brick paving!

Cost

Finally,brick affordability is one of the greatest reasons to choose brick for your next paving project. Although bricks vary in cost based on the type you choose, it is very possible to install them yourself. This will definitely save you money in labor.

So, whether you are building something as long as the fabled yellow brick road or something as short as a garden path, brick paving is a sure way to create a durable and beautiful path or lawn detail that is certain to enhance your yards aesthetic value!

<h1>How To Grout Your Tile And Stone

By Michael Garman

More and more homeowners are experiencing the satisfaction of repairing their tile and grout. The high cost of labor for even small jobs, has driven people to the stores looking for tile, materials, products and information.


This is GREAT! Why shouldn’t homeowners learn to tile and grout?


I’ve seen many new homes with completed ceramic tile jobs that have made the hair on the back of my neck stand up in fright … especially tract homes where the bottom line for the developer is speed and corners to cut. So the more we learn about the different trades and the applications and techniques thereof, the better we will recognize a well performed and finished product to be proud of.

With this in mind, here are some grouting techniques to install in your memory banks for your next tile or stone job around the house.

Whether you have laid new tile or have scraped out the grout from an existing tiled area, make sure you clean the grout joints thoroughly and have taped off the areas you don’t want the grout to “spill over.” Wiping grout off of sealed cabinets and semi or glossy paints won’t hurt those materials if you use care when wiping, but sometimes a little labor invested in taping adjacent areas will make the job easier in the long run.

When the grout joints are clean and ready to fill; mix the powdered grout with clean water and according to the package specifications. The grout should be lump-free and a consistency that will not easily pour out of the bucket.

Use the appropriate grout for your application. A non-sanded grout should be used for grout joints that are 1/8” and smaller in widths, while sanded grouts are to be used in joints which are larger. Typically you’ll find the smaller grout joints with the non-sanded grout in the bathroom and shower areas.

Use some latex gloves to protect your hands and with a grout float held at a 30-45 degree angle, spread the grout firmly into the grout joints. Don’t worry about the mess on the tiles as this will clean up with your sponge at the proper time. Some areas that are hard to float, you can force the grout into the joint by hand. When all the joints are filled completely, scrape the excess grout off the tiles by holding the float at an almost 90 degree angle and pulling diagonally across the joints so you don’t remove grout from the joints. Put all the remaining grout back in the bucket.

Allow the grout to set for about 10 minutes then with a clean bucket of water and grout sponge, lightly wipe the tiles with a damp sponge, (not a dripping sponge). Always wipe with a clean side of the sponge, flip the sponge over and wipe another section, then rinse the sponge clean. The initial sponging wipes most of the unwanted grout from the surface. The second sponging smoothes and neatens the joints and the third cleans the haze or residue from the tile. Always allow a few minutes between the three sponging cycles as this will allow the grout time to properly set. Remember, you don’t want water from the sponge to puddle on the grout as this weakens and deforms the consistency.

Lastly, a final wipe will smooth any remaining high spots in the grout joints and clean the tiles of the remaining haze. After the grout dries, you can polish the tile with cheesecloth or a soft cotton cloth to remove any remaining residue. Nice Job!

A Brief Introduction To Brick And Tile

By Glover Paul

Although brick and tile are two of the oldest construction materials, they remain favorites among homebuilders and home improvement specialists today. And there’s a good reason for it! Not only is brick and tile beautiful, they’re strong and resistant to high winds and they’re responsive to temperature – making them premium textiles for shelter and insulation.

Brick and Tile Have A History

Brick has a history that’s at least six thousand years old. Made of clay, bricks are made by burning them in a kiln for a specific length of time. The end result is a collection of 2 1/4 × 3 3/4 × 8-inch blocks of heat resistant, strong, and hard block of building material. Their simple production is what lends to this material’s historical and cultural expansion.

Tiles of the past were made of clay as well. Only recently have we begun tile production with synthetic plastic. Historically, facing tile is the most common and you’ve surely seen this style of tile as a flat glazed square. Another style that you might be familiar with is terra cotta – hard-unglazed brownish-red earthenware. Terra cotta is usually applied to brick or plaster.

Brick Types

Different types of brick serve different purposes. The most widely recognized brick is a reddish clay and sand combination that might have a hole in the middle of it. This kind of brick is known as a Kiln Brick. Facing brick is kiln-burned also; however it has a smoother and more attractive surface. As a result, facing brick is used on visible parts of buildings where kiln bricks are reserved for non-visible parts – just like the common brick. You will typically find the common brick along sidewalls. As decoration, brick veneer is thinner (shallow) than the others and is used (with mortar) to surface interior walls.

Brick veneer isn’t the only type of brick that’s used for aesthetic purposes however. You can create an interesting atmosphere within your home with tapestry brick, which is impressed with a design, or with molded brick, which is shaped into interesting forms (curves, arches, etc.).

Tile Types

Interestingly, you’ll find a lot more different kinds of tile than you’ll find of brick. We’ve already introduced terra cotta, but we haven’t touched on facing tile (otherwise known as flooring or wall tile). Like facing brick, facing tile is meant for visible areas.

Italian Faience tile is known for it’s opaque glazes whereas Spanish Majolica tile is known for its bright surfaces. Dutch Delft tile shows off an oriental appearance with white or blue hues.

You Have A Wide Assortment to Work From

As you can see, you have a wide selection of both tile and brick to pick and choose from when you’re thinking about laying out a new floor or wall or even counter top. You’re limited only by your imagination and your contractor can help you decide which type of tile or brick is suitable for your climate, lifestyle, or creative goals!
