Prior to installation, the entire design should be laid out to ensure a good balance of glaze color variation and to confirm that all of the necessary tiles are accounted for. The manner of installation should follow industry guidelines for specific site conditions, which can be found in the Tile Council of North America publication, Handbook of Ceramic Tile Installation. Contact the TCNA here for more information.
Selecting a Tile Installer
Finding an installer who cares about your job is essential to a successful installation. We like installers who take extra time at the beginning to check fit, spacing, and glaze variation pattern before they glue down any tile. Your building contractor may be able to help you locate a professional tile installer in your area.
