The first step in the removal of ceramic tile is to take out the trim covering the edges of the tiles. Next, scrape out the grout found on the perimeter of the tiles. Caulking on the vertical corners should also be properly scraped out. For removing these elements, equipments such as sharp utility knife, razor blade, and grout saw with wooden or plastic handle can be used. Once the tiles are free of grout and caulk, tapping can be done on the tiles to check whether any of the tiles is loose.
After having applied the adhesives, carefully place the tiles one by one on the surface. Equipments such as tile spacers can be used to give adequate space between the tiles. Sometimes, for fixing tiles on the edges cutting may be required. A masonry drill can be used for the cutting purposes. For making curved cuts, micro cutter or wet saw can be used. Before allowing the tiles to settle, they should be leveled using a hammer. When tiles are settled, fill in the gap between the tiles with grout. Seal all grout joint to avoid grout porosity. The final step in ceramic tile installation process is caulking. This is primarily done to prevent water from seeping into bathtub edges or corners of the wall.
