Technology installation of ceramic tiles on the floor photo enamel bathtub If corrupted, damaged coating mixers limescale streaks of rust from the sink is not washed away, and tarnished tiles fell off places.Well, you have time to repair the bathroom.This service is very expensive.The costs for building materials and sanitary ware can be reduced only at the expense of their quality, but for its own repair itself is quite feasible.The cost of such repairs is approximately equal to the cost of materials.By doing it yourself, you can reduce the cost by half.Prepare for the fact that the repair will take a long enough time and bring some inconvenience.Be careful and do not rush - and the result will exceed all your expectations!And now examine in detail the technology laying tiles on the floor and walls of the bathroom.After a look to secure t

he video lesson and be able to put the tiles with their hands in any room.See also the article on how to perform enamelling baths with their own hands.

Plumbing in bathroom

First of all, remove the plumbing in the bathroom, before the installation of ceramic tiles on floors and walls.If your drain is made of cast iron, be careful - cast relatively brittle metal.Do not apply strong impacts on it with a hammer.Typically, from iron sewage leave only common vertical riser (if it is not possible to replace subjective reasons).Compounds drain, made of iron, usually reeling sealed with cement.Remove the seal can be drilled two-millimeter drill it.This will facilitate the dismantling of unnecessary portion of the sewers.

Installation sewerage and water supply is outside the scope of this article.Therefore we confine ourselves to a single rule.We need to know exactly where the plumbing will be located.If you choose to swap the toilet and sink, you have to redo and running water to the drainage system.More specifically on the installation of running water can be read here.

How to bring down the old tile with their hands

How to bring down the old tile photo To begin remove the old tiles.This requires a hammer and chisel.Chisel have a small maximum angle to the surface being cleaned.It is necessary to protect yourself, wear protective goggles and gloves.If you have a punch - excellent!It will speed up the work.TAPPED determine how well kept stucco.In older homes are often monolithic layer of plaster is really no longer adheres to the wall.In this case, it must be removed.Old coating is removed completely, and if it is made of mortar.The most complicated case - old concrete wall in the bathroom, painted enamel.Manufacturers provide quality tile adhesives clutch engagement at least 80% of the tile to a wall, therefore do not notched for the paint.It is necessary to bring down.As a rule, the best result gives a regular hammer.But you can try and punch or a special attachment to the Angle typewriter.The video examples of ceramic tiles have knocked.

Once you got to knock down the old tile with your hands, go to the following important actions.Purified surface to improve adhesion (adhesion) is treated soil.If the surface absorbs it (typical of the old brickwork), the primer is performed multiple times or use a special primer "betonkontakt" (only one layer).When the primer surface is possible to use the principle of "porridge butter will not spoil."

Plastering of surface - preparation for laying tile

Plastering photos surface surface on which the tiles will be laid must be as flat and vertical (horizontal).This will reduce the consumption of expensive tile adhesive and improve the quality of the masonry.See the article how to perform stucco walls with his own hands the video installation technology beacons and other nuances.The fact that any, even the expensive, imported ceramic tile has a deviation from the nominal parameters.In the domestic tile first grade these deviations about a millimeter.It seems that it is a little, but a dozen tiles can give an error in centimeters!So, one of these parameters - deviation from the ideal plane.Therefore, smooth surface will further control the quality of masonry, making sure that the applied adhesive layer has a uniform thickness.Furthermore, when too thick layer of adhesive, once it during installation of ceramic tiles can not be extruded into the gap, and come under the preceding one, pressing it.The verticality of the walls, you can check the repeated sounding them with the suspension.But you can use another method.Bathroom wall is marked with vertical stripes.The last strip is about 10 cm from the edge.The distance between adjacent strips is chosen depending on the tool, which will be applied to the plaster with your hands (usually large spatula or poluter).It is better to use the rule of a length not less than a meter, and mark the wall so that the distance between adjacent three stripes was 10 - 15 cm less than the length of the rule.Each strip by a distance of 0.5 m drilled holes 6-8 mm in diameter.They are inserted into the plastic dowels and screws in the dowels twist.Consistently screwing and unscrewing screws, using the rack level have them in a single "virtual" vertically.The ultimate "virtual plane" is the surface of plaster.It is necessary that the layer of plaster was not less than 0.5 cm.

Guide rails - base for tiles Based on the exposed screws made guides.By screws pressed flat rack (for example, the starting metal ceiling profile for «Knauf» drywall).Under the rail tightly clogged with mortar.If the walls of the big drop, and the mixture does not hold, then as a reinforcement can be used thin strips of drywall, cementing them together with the same mixture.A few hours later, after the initial hardening mixture, the river is removed, the resulting stripe trimmed - the guide is ready.(The second option is shown from the side in the photo, is screwed to the wall profile required length, holding the level and start to put it on ceramic tiles).The video below shows an example of how to put more smoothly.In commercially available ready-guides - special T-shaped perforated beacons.To their mounting strip is applied on the wall plaster mix, and then pressed into its beacon so that the mixture is extruded through the holes.The verticality of the guide is controlled by a level.Care should be taken that the level between the beacon and the entire length there are no gaps.For more information about working with plaster and beacons.

When their hands made laying tile in the bathroom, the technology must be used plaster mixes, cement-based, they are more durable. Plaster hygroscopic and can not guarantee long-lasting styling and require waterproofing.

mixture pounces on the wall with a spatula or trowel sharp brushstroke.If you are using a home-made solution or mixture ready inexpensive, it is best to wet the surface to be coated a solution with water.Damage aligned rule solution which slowly rises upwards along the guide rails and simultaneously performs a reciprocating movement perpendicular to them.If the finished surface has pits, they are filled with the solution and the repeated alignment.For large uneven wall plaster applied in two - three layers.Each layer has to dry completely, and be primed.The finished surface can be sanded, if needed, and primed.

Keep in mind that at least one angle must be straight.It established a bathtub.By the same procedure leveled floor.The only difference - it must be pre-waterproofed.Waterproofing must protect the entire floor and the bottom of the wall.For waterproofing of the easiest to use a special ready-mixed.Its application is simple and detailed in the instructions on the package.

technology ceramic tiles

Laying ceramic tiles Photo preliminary necessary to partition the surface of the hands.The video below is an example of how to do it.It is advisable to wash basin was located symmetrically with respect to a tile, tub did not cover most of the number of tiles and the border does not pass where is the mixer (this does not allow tightly and evenly pressed against the wall of the reflectors of the mixer).Ceramic tile is purchased with a margin of approximately 10% of the area of ​​the walls and floor.Some tiles will go to waste after cutting and fight.You can also put a stack of tiles in reserve, all of a sudden during the operation, it will be damaged - what will soon be replaced.

If the bottom row will consist of cut tiles, then start laying follows from the second row (the bottom row is placed after laying the floor).To this end, the perimeter of the room with the level exhibited a smooth rake.It will be a support for the tiles.Begin laying each row is better with central tile.This will help to reduce the error, accumulating due to the difference in size of ceramic tiles.Notched trowel, apply tile adhesive.According to the technology, being a spatula at an angle of about 45 degrees.According to the density of the solution should look like sour cream.Applying tiles and fired tapping a rubber mallet.Excess adhesive is removed, the ends of the tiles are cleared and the operation is repeated with the next tile.

Insert the plastic crosses photo The gap between the tiles aligned plastic cross.Tile and have cross sectional shape of a trapezoid, so the deeper the recessed cross, the wider the seam, so you need to put it so that the tiles are not mown.After all, the difference in the size of the tiles should be level, changing the width of the tile seam.This can be done using a special plastic wedges.The easiest way to achieve a good quality - make sure that the upper edge of the series lying on the same straight line.Start the next row should be only after the previous one is finished.This ensures that the seams between the rows match (upper edge tile row lies in a horizontal plane).In addition, you can visually check the verticality of the corners of the walls of masonry.

If required, ceramic tile cut with his own hands with the help of Tile cutters or small "grinders" with pobeditovym disk.See the article how to cut tile correctly.When working with grinder, be sure to wear gloves, goggles and a respirator.Grinders can also erode and tiles to the desired size, making it a notch plumbing manholes.If you need to make a hole, here are ways to make a hole in ceramic tile.In order to hide chipped glaze in the incision site, you can use a plastic tile corners.The size of corners, and the color chosen depending on the tiles.

on the floor Laying tile is better to do and positioned so that the cutting was under tile bathroom.It is not necessary to use a notched trowel, it is better to apply an even layer of glue usual.When using a notched trowel likely formation in a layer of glue voids.This can lead to the fact that floor tiles will crack during use.

Fill the joints between the tiles grout Photo about a day joints between the tiles are filled with grout.It is applied with a rubber spatula.15-20 minutes after application, the seam can be smoothed with a wet sponge.The day after the remains of grout from the tile removed with a damp and then a dry cloth.Find out how much grout you need help calculator.Now watch the video lessons - examples of how to perform these same actions tiling specialists.The technology is the same.Now you are ready to repair the bathroom with their hands.
