Do It Yourself Basic Tile Projects and Repairs 102

Learn how to design a tile installation and then install it in your home. Tile projects for wall installations will be reviewed, with wall preparation, types of materials needed, framing of the wall and layout of patterns. The applications of tile for countertops are then covered, with the need for framing, borders around sinks, and grouting. Outdoor projects are then discussed with the need for weatherproofing, and care needed. Repairs to tile-based surfaces are reviewed, covering the removal of damaged areas, allowing for new grout and matching of surfaces.
