Quick tips for Glass and Stone Mosaic Tile Installation
Please note, these are general guide lines and tips for installing glass and stone mosaic tiles. They are not meant to replace the expertise of a tile setter. Hiring a professional tile contractor is recommended for proper tile installation.
Recommended Application: Residential, Light Commercial, Medium Commercial, Bath/Shower, Fireplace, Indoor, Wall
Grout: A non-sanded grout is recommended to avoid scratching/damaging your glass tile. Stone and grout sealer should be applied before and after grouting. The first coat will help to avoid risk of hazing on the stone tiles while grouting. A second coat of sealer should be applied after the grout has fully cured.
Trowel: Please use a 3/16” or 1/8” v notch trowel.
Adhesive: Please use a white adhesive that is recommended for glass tiles and mosaics. The bag or bucket of adhesive will state weather it can be used with glass tiles.
Cutting Glass Tile: To cut your tile, please use a tile wet saw with a glass cutting diamond blade. Please note, any other type of tile blade may cause chipping along the edge. You may also use a carbide cutter to make straight cuts. However, L shaped cuts can only be made with a wet saw.
Wet Areas: You may require use of a waterproof membrane when your tile is being installed in wet areas such as a tub surround or shower. We recommend using RedGard. .
