How to Install the New Tiles for Outside Countertop?

From: Date: 3/14/2013

Do you have an outside tile countertop in your yard? Does it look old? Would you like to refresh it? If you are interested in the, just doní»t miss out the following procedures:

1.    Use a notched trowel to apply tile adhesive to the back of the new tiles. Set them in place using a slight twisting motion, making sure that each tile is lined up evenly with the existing grout lines. It's also important to ensure that the tiles are level with the surrounding tiles. Once all the tiles have been applied, let the countertop cure for 24 hours.

2.    After the tiles have cured, apply the grout. Mix it according to the manufacturer's instructions, making sure you only mix enough for the project. You can save the extra grout for other jobs.  

3.    Add the grout to the empty areas around the new tile using a grout float. After five minutes, use a damp sponge to clean the top of the tiles and remove any haze that has accumulated on the surface. Again, let the area dry for 24 hours. 

4.    Once you have waited for the counter to cure, apply a clear sealant to the newly applied grout with a paintbrush. Let the counter dry fully before using it again.
