Cutting tile

I have 5/16” porcelain floor tile. Looks like marble but it’s not.

Brand new blade, Ridgid 10” wet “Porcelain”.

Why is my tile chipping?

Taped and Aqua Defense up

Pic progress.

So I decided to be like the cool kids and use Aqua-mans rubber on the walls. I see the advantage, but man is it time consuming and expensive. I was hoping to get by with one gallon....

Good news day

Got some good news.

Got the asbestos test results for the double layer of linoleum and sheet flooring. All negative so I can rip that out. I’m undecided on tile or click-and-lock. It needs to be...
