Here, we are discussing the brief portfolio of the laying tiles.

1. Preparing layer

The most important part is to make a solid decision. In this part, it assists, especially when you know the space for tile. Generally, the space is something like that- for home, rent, office, or any business and space is measured by square fit depending on the occupying area. 

In addition, setting a tile need some pre-calculation:

(a) In North America, laying tiles are adjusted into the floor, but the floor is strict to two or more sets of carpet like wooden or concrete types; It’s another name- module shape.

(b) Before adjusting manually pick out its rough surface step by step as well as rub out the awkward slice carefully.

(c) Cleaning the space by hand tools like a broom.

2. Selecting Pattern,Sizing tiles and cutting:

The pattern means the size of laying tile:  rectangular, square, or quadrilateral. By measuring  a tape you should first take an idea and it will help you to make a real shape. The laying tile would not be the same in every function, it will start on the middle front to onward, so you keep a tile cutter and “Measuring twice and cut once”- do following to unwanted spoils.

Sizing tiles means the leveling area occupied with titles. A variety of sizes is available i.e ceramic, glass, limestone, marble & so on, and choose the best ones; so, related manufacturers or consulting houses may accelerate this business within optimum budget.

In this step, make a sketch and draw a view of the template. If it does not adjust into the frame you have to readjust by electric cutter or diamond blade. A pencil or marker keeps you ahead for indicating. And do this job several times until smooth positioning.

3. Preparing mixture:

To enhance the job need some steps:

(a) A mixture of installation processes would be 2:1:1 such as water, sand, and cement.

(b) To concrete mixing, wait 30 to 40 minutes, and need a test for betterment, move for another.

(c) Put the mixture into the moduled and wait for the hardness level.

(d) A Particular item is to be set, use of goggles and utility knife is handy.

(e) The whole process will be run by a bucket and electric mixer.

4. Installation procedure:

Step-A: After getting the mixture called Mortar, the key point is to level. For this, using a tile trowel throughout the space and having level the whole points of the shape.

Step-B: This stage is sitting all pieces of cutting tiles, moving such a way- middle to onward-round to corner; connecting all plates of the tiles; where 45 degrees to 90-degree angling.

Step-C: To get a good sharp leveling- the use of grout float is a must; it is not only a medium of cover but also creating a unique design above the step, it’s another specialty- to make hardness between two parts; no space does not remain. Moreover, use a tile leveler to make proper balance as well as adjustment.

Step-D: In a worksite, nothing is perfect; sometimes breakage or misuse makes a huge disconnection. For this, tile spacers- T shape creates good balance among itself. 

5.Finishing Touch:

In this step, after installing all tiles around the floor you may have some guidelines:

Use of carpenter squares – L shape at the corner of the floor, it usually does fitting and solid functioning to the concrete or base plate. Besides, a silicone caulk has been used between the entrance mouth and the outer face of the floor. Moreover, a silicone grout sealer is used for the joint of outer space links.

At the finish, remove all dirt, moisture, and wet side from the safety cleaner like a sponge and make a test as to whether it sounds enough or not. All of the above steps cannot make a difference if you do not spend time enough. The approximate time is 24 hours.
