tile installation begins from the second row.To fasten the wall pre-aligned profile, which put the second, third, etc.ranks.Start checking the level of the ranks: the smallest curvature will grow up, which could result in the vertical gap between the tiles.

Tile is easy to saw and drill bits.When cladding is mounted plinth, then ebbs, and only then - the first row of tiles.The last mounted corners.

cap for extra protection from atmospheric moisture around the perimeter put the shield of asbestos cement sheets or reinforced concrete slabs.

  • if you use a tile "Brick", we see that the walls are not made of bricks and tiles from certain, however, according to new posts, it does not spoil the appearance of the house, the more so from a distance of one meter gap is notnoticeable;
  • have to be careful when buying the material: the color of the tiles may not match the sample and can brighten during operation.
