When to install new toilet flange


I'm currently in the process of remodeling my bathroom. I plan on putting down ceramic tile, and as of now, I have the concrete board already down. My question is, when should I install the toilet flange? Should I wait until the tile is down? Or do it first, then tile around it?

Ideally the flange sits atop the tile, but that happens rarely these days.

When to install new toilet flange


Toilet flange should be flush to about 1/4" above the finished floor. If the tile is 1/4" thick, it can be installed after.
