Framing a wall over porcelain tile
I am finishing out a 3 car garage with two bedrooms and a rec room. Since I plan on taking the walls down when the kids go I tiled the floor first. I knew that I couldn't shoot the floor to frame walls without shattering the tile but, I thought that I could drill anchors. Seems like that might have been a bad idea now. I have a 3/16 grout line. I don't suppose it would be possible to use steel base plate with 3/16 or 1/8 screws into the grout to anchor the base plate. :no: The walls are 10ft.
If I have to, I guess I can saw cut the tile to properly anchor the walls. What a shame to cut up my brand new tile work. I'm looking for an option that minimizes damage to the porcelain tile.
Glue------I have successfully glued the bottom plates using PL 200(?)---read the labels
I've done this several times with no trouble,when finishing basements that have hydronic heating.
The other alternative would be drill and tapcons----I'm not sure which will make a bigger mess.
That glue might be a big job to remove.---Mike--
I found some drill bits that will work for porcelain tile. What size/kind of anchors should I use?
