If you mark things out and make your cuts before you start setting you can set the cuts as you set your field. Going back and doing cuts last is the least efficient IMO.

Hi Tracy. The folks opining in that article don't have a clue what they're bumbling about. Generally speaking with 18" tile I would grout the next day and move the appliances back. I guess I might...

Now that you mention it, that is probably the part of epoxy that I hate most. The little bucket with a margin trowel is a pain and if you use a drill the mixing bar it's not much better with cleanup...

I have used a mix of Soft Scrub, Dawn, and Borax with tooth brush and micro fiber rags for years. We have horses and dirty feet make it thru the door no matter how hard we try to clean them.

Well, sure the waterproof layer below needs to be sloped towards the drain but I think the point is that the top of the curb is sloped slightly to the shower because when the water from the door...

Hi Brian. What you have is not resin backed tile. Vinyl acetate is used to adhere the mesh to the back of the tile to hold it together until it is set. That particular type of marble mosaic is...

Maybe for a short while but I think that will be a recurring problem.

Fill what seams? The joint between the new coping and surrounding surface? That would get a caulk/sealant in between the two....

Is that real slate or a porcelain mimic? If it's real slate I don't think it would last well in the long term. If it's porcelain or ceramic some good modified thinset that can be used in a...

Can you post any pics of the pool? Is the top of the bond beam flat? I wouldn't be using those slate tiles for the pool.

So at 8" net, tile and grout joint, that would give you a 7" cut at the floor. With a standard 96" ceiling, that leaves 49" frombottom of sill to the ceiling, or a 1" cut. That's not really ideal....

What is the distance from the floor to the bottom of the window where you want to stop the tile? I wouldn't want a cut at the window. Figure a full piece under the sill and see what size piece you...

As far as grout goes, I would stay away from Custom Polyblend. Waaaay to unpredictable. You could end up with 5 different shades in 5 feet or less. Laticrete Permacolor is far superior in my opinion....

Unless you have “smart “ sandpaper that knows when to stop removing grout when it gets to the tile surface I don’t see that working. You will end up with portions of the tile with a sanded face.

Sounds like around 75 sq ft. Are replacement tiles available that match the existing floor? I still think the best option is to replace. I don't really see any way to get that epoxy removed.
