how to put tiles on the floor

Who at least once independently made the repair of his home, knows that this is a very laborious and troublesome occupation (especially if you do everything neatly and conscientiously). Here is the laying on the floor of the tile, which at first glance may seem simple, it later turns out to be not so simple, because if you do not adhere to certain rules and recommendations, you will not get the perfect result.

I propose to visit the site where you will find a huge collision of video lessons in the repair and decoration of the floor.

Before laying the tiles on the floor, you need to prepare the solution. One part of the cement is required to take five or six parts of sand, since the texture of the solution should be thicker than that of the solution used to lay the tiles on the wall.

The next step is to lay out the tiles on the base. Better to do it on a concrete surface. After all, on the coating of this type, no additional preparation needs to be carried out.

However, first you need to determine the peculiar point of the reference, according to which you will then be equal when lining. Usually, such a point is determined from the farthest corner, and then all work is carried out towards the doorway, setting the beacons using the construction level and a special square. The main task of lighthouses is to keep a certain level and plane of the coating. If on the concrete foundation of the floor you find bugs, then one beacon will need to be put on the highest part of the irregularity, and then pour the space between the beacons with an adhesive mixture and then immediately start laying tiles.

Each lined element should be launched by rubber clay. This manipulation should be done rather carefully, so as not to damage the tile. Otherwise, you have to remove a damaged fragment and start work again.

Does not recommend pouring the entire floor surface immediately. It is more advisable to lay the tiles not too large segments (for example, small squares). Thanks to this trick, fixing various possible errors will be easier.

Sometimes in some places you have to lay cut tiles. Try to plan everything so that it is in the corners of the room or along the walls. There her “imperfection” will not be very striking.

When the glue dries, the turn of the finishing work will come. Using a special grout, you will have to carefully process all the “seams” between the tiles and let it dry. Then the new floor can be washed to get rid of the traces of the repair work remaining on it.
