Tile (3)Backer board is nailed with galvanized roofing nails and all seams are taped

Tile (4)Tile detail before grout

Tile (10)Tile detail after grout.

Tile (9)When using large tiles extra care is required for a very level surface. Plastic shims may be used to align corners perfectly.

Tile (6)These corner trim pieces are very effective to create a threshold transition. They are designed as wall trim but are durable on the floor when well supported with setting compound.
