Installing Tile Right After Cutting With Wet Saw
 
Installing 12" x 12" porcelain tiles. Using a wet saw to cut the tiles. On a few practice ones I've done, the tiles get fairly wet.

I though I read something on this, but can't find it now. Can the tiles be installed immediately after cutting, or do I need to wait until they completely dry out?

thanks

They can be installed immediately but you would want to towel dry them rather than plop them down still dripping water. I hope you are using thinset mortar for your adhesive.:)

Fast response - thanks

Yes, using thin-set
