Tips and tricks:

Setting Out

Lay dry tiles on the floor and arrange so that difficult cuts and awkward corners are avoided.

How many tiles do I need?

When calculating how many tiles you need, work out how many will cover the area to be tiled – and then add 10% for breakages. You can always return the extra tiles if you don’t use them.

Cutting Tiles

For awkward cuts, it’s recommended that you make a template out of card and trace around it. Always remember to wear goggles and gloves when cutting tiles.

Spacers

Use spacers to ensure regular spacing of tiles. Occasionally check with a spirit level to ensure the tiles remain level.

Checking

Occasionally lift a tile that has been recently laid to ensure full adhesive contact is being achieved.

Step by Step

Preparation:

1. Cover floor boards with 15mm thick plywood. Screw down existing wooden floors at 300mm centres through the joists.

2. Prime plaster surfaces with UniBond plaster primer.

Mixing:

1. Add about 4 parts powder to 1 part water by weight. If tiling over wooden floors use UniBond Flexi Mix Additive instead of water.

2. Mix thoroughly to produce a smooth, stiff paste. Mix enough adhesive for 30 minutes' application and discard any product not used within this period.

Fixing Tiles on Notched Bed  (Floor and wall tiling in dry areas):

1. Spread adhesive using a suitable notched trowel to a depth of 6mm.

2. Apply enough adhesive for 10 minutes fixing.

3. Immediately press the tiles into the adhesive using a twisting action to ensure full contact. Do not fix tiles if a skin has formed on the adhesive.

Fixing Tiles on Solid Bed  (Floor and wall tiling in wet areas):

1. Apply a continuous bed of adhesive up to 6mm thick over 1m2 area. Lightly rib the surface using a notched trowel.

2. Bed the tiles firmly into the adhesive using a twisting action to ensure full contact.

3. Tile spacers should be used to ensure regular spacing.

4. Remove surplus adhesive immediately with a damp cloth.
