Ceramic Tile Wood Floor – Ceramic is one of the most widely used types of tiles in homes. Due to its waterproof, coated properties, ceramic tiles are ideal in places where porous tiles – such as stone or slate – are less favorable conditions. Bathrooms and kitchens are two examples. You can install ceramic tiles in your home during almost any type of subfloor. This includes rough wood floors as the texture can really help the tiles stick to the floor.
Place one level against the floor and make sure the level is seated evenly. Look for drops in the ground below the level. Apply wood putty at low spots and holes to level the floor. Allow the filling to dry for 3 to 4 hours and check the word again with the level. Sand any high spots filled with medium grain sandpaper. When you have finished sanding, clean the floor to remove as much dirt and dust as possible.
Mark the center of the floor by measuring along each wall in the room and marking the center of the wall. Apply placement adhesive on the floor along the lines that mark the center of the room. Continue laying tiles in this way to the edges of the floor, cut tiles to size with a tile saw to fit into the wall, if necessary. When all the tiles are placed, let the floor dry for 24 hours. Return to the floor after 24 hours, remove the tile spacers and fill the spaces with grout. Use a float to apply the grout and apply a layer of putty along the edges of the tiles where they come into contact with the wall.
