How to put the tile on a wooden floor.
Step 1: Preparing the floor for laying the ceramic tile
To ensure that the tile is laid correctly and permanently - the floor surface should be checked for irregularities and loose wooden elements. If it is impossible to bring the surface to a proper state, it is more appropriate to completely remove all the wooden elements and mount the cement screed. If the wooden cover is completely unusable, it will help to avoid tile damage in the future.
Step 2: dismantle old coatings before laying
Before you start laying the tiles on a wooden surface, you must first clean it of previously applied paint and varnish. These actions can be performed in several ways: mechanically, by heat treatment, and also with the help of special fluids. The mechanical method involves removing the paint by scraping it off the wooden surface with various tools such as a spatula or chisel. Thermal method of removing paint from a wooden surface implies preheating the old paint with a mounting hair dryer, and then removing it with the same spatula or chisel. Liquid removal involves applying a special solvent that separates the paint from the surface, after which it can be removed using a variety of tools or even a rag.
Step 3: check if the wooden floor is strong enough to lay the tile
Before laying the ceramic tiles, it is necessary to check the previously cleaned surface for various cracks and bumps. If such elements are found, it is necessary to eliminate them using a chisel( in case of bulges), or putty( in case of cracks).
Step 4: Reinforcing the floor
To keep the tile firmly on the floor surface, it is necessary to pre-lay a painting net on the wooden surface. Then the mesh is covered with a special primer, after which it needs to be allowed to dry thoroughly.
Step 5: prepare glue for ceramic tiles
A solution for laying ceramic tiles on a wooden floor is made by mixing cement with bostilate or building mastic. This will ensure the best gluing of building materials from the floor surface.
Step 6: How to put the tiles on wooden floors
The tiles are laid on a pre-prepared surface in even rows, in accordance with a pre-prepared pattern.
Thus, the article described and described measures for laying ceramic tiles on a wooden surface.
