18x18 Travertine Stone Tile Install...


Alot of misinformation or not complete info to do the job correctly, at least when it comes to tiling.

IMHO, I would never set 1/2" stone in sand, will always move, should be mortared or thinsetted to a concrete base, Concrete & Brick pavers are 2"+ thick and lock in place, they can be installed over a sand base.

If they rock, there's space under them and not 100% flat in the sand, lift the ones that rock and reset them, hope it helps.

Home Depot....try a real tile shop. You might have to take them to a stone fabricator since the saw you'll need is kinda pricey to find at many rental stores.

Home Depot sells a cheapy tile tablesaw unit for around $100 and I did all my cuts with it. You can cut any size tile with since it is like a table saw. For a DIY it is okay, but not super accurate or that convenient. It got the job done.
