Tiling steps with curved corners


I am about to tile three steps in the mudroom/breezeway. The steps have curved corners that I plan to square off. I was planning on putting a couple screws into each corner, sticking out a bit. Then put the vertical tile in. Once the tile sets, I would put some thick concrete in the gap, let it cure, and install the horizontal tile. Any input?

Tiling steps with curved corners


Hi Jordan, thx for the PM,

You can do it that way, it'll work. I recommend applying some thin set on the step prior to applying the concrete to build up the corners.

You could also place a form in place of the riser tiles, then remove the form. Again use the thin set cuz concrete will not bond to concrete very well. Or you might consider using Quikrete Quick Setting Cement # 1240, read about it here; http://www.quikrete.com/PDFs/DATA_SH...ent%201240.pdf
