How to Tile Over Brick

by:Shihui     2020-01-07
Bare bricks are a look that can complement many home styles.However, when more colors or personalized styles are needed, tiling on bare bricks is a great way to bring a whole new look to the space.Glass tiles, tiles, or natural stone tiles can all be laid on bricks, giving the space a fresh, updated look.
Mix thin to the manufacturer\'s specifications until it resembles the consistency of peanut butter.Lay a uniform thin layer on the bricks with a tro knife.Smooth the thin sleeve using the flat sides and edges of the spatula to eliminate any ridges or bumps.
Before tiling, thinset is allowed to cure for 24 hours.Thinset will cover bricks and mortar and provide a flat and smooth surface for tile installation.Lay the first tile below, the center part of the wall, lay a thin cover on the area to be tiled, and combine the thin cover with the edge of the groove of the spatula, until the ridge height is uniform.
Press the tile into the thin sleeve and twist it in place slightly.Evenly spread the next tile in the same way to the right and left of the first tile.Mark the tiles that need to be cut at the end of the line with straight edges and pencils, then cut and install them on the tile saw.
Tile the next line above in the same way.
Remember to leave room for grouting between tiles.Allow thinset to cure for 24 hours and then grout the tile by filling the grout between seams with a grouting float.Wipe the excess grout with a damp sponge and be careful not to over-wet or \"clean\" the grout as this can lead to a reduction in the color of the grout.
Allow the mud to cure for an extra 24 hours
