I need help? I am trying to lay tile
I have never did tile before. I have a few basic questions.
1) After i snap my line I'll end up with a 10" cut on both sides of my room but if I move the tile all the way flush against one wall it will be centered on the door and I'll have a 4" cut on the opposing wall is that the proper way to do it or what?
2) At what point do you put down something for cracks in the slab, I mean what size cracks are not acceptable before you have to repair them?
3) Also if there is some flat paint over spray on the floor does it need to be ground down or just mopped?
4) By the back sliders the concrete slab is about 1" above the slider door track any suggestions?
1.) There is no "proper way", do what you think looks best.
2.) Any existing cracks are a threat to a tile installation.
3.) Paint is a known bondbreaker and should be removed.
5.) Some use a metal or plastic tile edging some use nothing.
