The first thing to do is to make sure that the tools you will use are ready at hand. These tools should include basic carpentry tools like an accurate measuring tape. a carpenter`s square and a bubble level. You should also be prepared with the tiles and all you need to space them and put them together: tile spaces. a tile cutter. a trowel. and a putty knife. Then you must get your adhesives ready: tile bonding material. thin set mortar or tile adhesive. the sealant. the grout and a rubber grout float. Also you must make sure that you are wearing work clothes or overalls. glasses and heavy-duty gloves for safety.
Measure Everything. The next step of your ceramic tile flooring installation is the accurate measuring of your floor and your tiles. This is necessary for you to be able to calculate exactly how many tiles you will need. You must measure the length and width of the section of floor you are going to tile and also the length and width of each tile. Then you must calculate. using these numbers. exactly how many tiles you are going to use. which will depend on the orientation of each tile as you have decided to place it on the floor. as well. Then you must find the mid-points of the length and the width of the floor you want to carry out your ceramic tile flooring installation process on; connect these midpoints to form a plus across the floor space. The intersection of the two lines of the plus is the center of your floor space; it is here that you must begin your ceramic tile flooring installation.

What`s the property owner`s risk tolerance? Does he/she want to be rock solid sure of the stability of the floor? Even if that means spending extra money and/or time to reinforce the floor. and accepting a floor that may sit higher than surrounding floors? Or is some risk of failure acceptable if the floor is not built to the righteous standards of the TCNA? Sometimes the extra effort is not worth the cost to the property owner. who should be fully informed on all options. Contractors who install flooring shouldn`t assume that clients don`t care enough to solve the problem: in the last year we`ve had two clients who spend thousands of extra dollars to reinforce subfloors in a kitchen and laundry room when we explained that their floors were too unstable for tile. They really wanted tile. and were willing to make the subfloor ready for it. even if it cost more.
