Hey guys, any tips on getting ceramic tile to adhere well on a slanted ceiling? Are mixed sizes ok? Special secret mortar mixtures? It's amazing how little I have been able to find about technique for this.

Hey Jeremy -

What kind of slant/pitch are you referring to - 1/4"/ft for steam shower or something more exaggerated?

Hi Jeremy, yeah what pitch and what size tile? You can use Mapei's Ultra Contact too.

Ahhhhhhh, first cup of coffee and my brain is buried in a mud pan slope.

Thanks CX!

It's pretty close to a 60ยบ roof pitch. I put a half bath in an old attic space and ran the shower lengthwise off center so about 5' up along the wall I built the pitch of the roof starts pushing into the shower for a few feet - it's not for tall people but it'll work fine for the current occupant. I want to tile the pitch as well as the walls to keep splash moisture from damaging it. I have a mixture of tile sizes ranging from 12" to 6" to 4", but I have enough that I could keep the pitch all one size if I had to.
