Working with tiles requires care and accuracy. Ceramics - a fragile material and can easily crack from a small blow. Before laying tiles sorted by color, size, select a pattern. Simultaneously inspect it for chips and cracks.
During laying tile often have to cut, cut and stitch tile. For this purpose, use an inexpensive tool - tile cutter. It is equipped with a cutting disc and a bath filled with water. During tile cutting, the sawing place is washed with liquid and dust, which is unavoidable when processing dry tile, is not formed.
If it is not possible to purchase a tile cutter or the amount of work on the installation of tile is small, for cutting, you can use a grinder equipped with a stone for stone work. But in this case, a large amount of dust can not be avoided, so it is desirable to saw ceramics outside.If there is no such possibility, the walls and interior are pre-covered with plastic wrap.
Cutting tile is made with a glass cutter or pobeditovogo cutter. The tile is placed on a flat surface, in the right place, draws a line with a simple pencil, and then follows it with a glass cutter or cutter. It is necessary not only to scratch the glaze, but also to cut through the top layer of the ceramic base. After that, the tile is taken with two hands and its bottom side hits the incision line with an object that is suitable for this purpose (for example, the edge of the table).
If you want to cut a tile for the floor, the cutting is done differently: first, make notches on the back side of the canvas, then - from the front. After that, a hammer is struck along the cutting line with such a force that a crack is formed on the ceramic in the right place. An inflow is a process by which the edges of a tile are leveled after cutting or cutting. To do this, use an emery block of large or medium grain.
Before laying tile must be soaked in water. This is necessary so that ceramics do not absorb moisture from the adhesive composition, which will weaken the connection and may lead to the fall of the tile.To do this, either moisten the back side of the tile using a hard brush, or soak the ceramic products in a container in water. Such preparation is needed if the work will use cement-sand mortar, glue or mastic. If the tile is planned to be laid on a thick oil paint, it, on the contrary, will need to be dried well.
