  1. Before "L-Thai" tile installation, prepare a concrete slab that is strong,
fairly, flat and corectly sloped, wash the concrete slab clean of all oils
and debris, rise the surface thoroughly and allow it to dry
     
  2.Applying the mortar, with the notched side of a trowel, comb the surface
of the mortar only: the notched should not scrape the concrete. Work to
create and even surface with no globs or gaps.
     
  3.Bring the tiles from 3 to 5 boxes. Soak them with clean water about 30
minutes. Apply mortar to the back of the tile. "Back-butter" with care.
     
  4. Seting the tile, for a professional-looking jobs, tiles sould be set in
straight lines with grout lines of consistent width, and the surface of the
should from a smooth plane. Stretch a string line next to a row of tiles.
     
  5.The width of the grout lines depends on your desirable. But normally for
"L-Thai" clay tile wide, grouts line are the norm (usualy 5 to 8 mm. for floor
tiles and 3 to 5 mm. for wall tile). The grout line will not be perfect, but they
should be as close to straight and consistent is width as possible. Place
"L-Thai" clay tiles as your favorable texture. Gently tap the tiles with a
hammer over a block of wood to embed them in the mortar and create a
smooth tile surface.
     
  6.Grouting large joints. Purchase sanded grout that is latex-reinforced.
Work the grout in between the tiles by pushing with a grout float in at
least two directions at all points. Squeegee away as much of the excess
grout as you can. Drag a wet towel over the area, then wipe lightly with a
damp sponge. You will need to rinse the sponge often. Once the grout
starts to stiffen, use the sponge to create grout lines that are consistent
to depth. After the grout is harden, then buff the surface with a dry cloth
until they shine. If any holes appear in the grout lines, fill them with grout.
If th
e tiles are installed without well cleaning, the mortar and grout will
strain the tiles.
