Tile lying is a process which requires special knowledge and experience. If you decide to do this work by yourself, you should know several simple rules to avoid unpleasant and annoying mistakes, which lead to budget overruns and failures.

The fundamental rules of tile lying

The first thing which should be done before tile lying on the floor is to prepare subflooring. It must be even; otherwise air-tightness of floor covering will be broken. On the uneven floor ceramic granite tile because of its hardness is vulnerable to strokesas well as increased consumption of adhesive to compensate for irregularities.

That is why it’s better to remove old underlayment and to pour a new one, to make it even and leave it to dry. Uneven surface of the wall should be done in the same way but with plaster of high quality. Also good basis for tile laying is gypsum plasterboard which can be an alternative to plaster.

After levelcrete or stopping runs dry, it should be covered with primer coat and then you can lay the tile. Keep in mind that for laying tiles on the floor or the wall is necessary to have a supply of the material at a rate of 10-15% of the calculated amount of tiles for the prospecting cladding.

Handy tips

It is not recommended to start laying the tiles in the bathroomor the kitchen immediately to the adhesive cement – even professionals with an extensive experience do not lay the tile in this way. You should first lay the tiles on the floor surface, to see the location of each detail. Before that, the room should be divided into four parts by means of conventional lines extending from the center of each wall.  Tiles pre-laying should be started at the intersection of the two lines, in other words, from the center of the room, moving uniformly in all directions. When you reach the wall, you'll see just how much centimeters must be cut from the tiles on each side. You need to have a special tool to cut the tile.

Readme! Before laying tiles to each wall, you should leave 0.5 cm of free space. You need to do it because the tiles under the influence of moisture and temperature could freely swell out and contract. Otherwise you run the risk to see the blowup floor or wall covering, when two pieces are raised above the surface at the hairline joint.
After you have estimated the location of the tiles on the floor and cut the outer pieces of the tiles to the desired width, you can start laying the tiles on the adhesive cement.
 Nevertheless, we want to add: plumbing services in London are not so expensive to undertake this difficult task on your own, risking to ruinsome tile boxes.
