The reason I'm starting with an exterior wall is that I know this wall is straight and square, so the key thing remembers what the VCT tile comes really close here you can see how I get my texture is every other one rotates its direction. So, as you can see, this one goes this way and then this one goes that way and vice versa. So this gives you a really cool texture and it will help really give you for a nice solid. Look because sometimes, if you run them all the same way, it kind of you'll be able to see all the weird imperfections.
But if you turn them sideways, because everything that uniform look - and I also like to stay about a quarter inch away from the wall, so that way you have room for expansion and contraction, and the great thing about this VCT tile is is, if you have a Drain in your floor, you can actually take a heat gun to these, so that way they will go with the slope of the drain so that way, you'll have mix water drainage without affecting your drain, all right and also what I'm looking for.
When I set my first tile is I'm looking to see where my last tile is going to end to see if I should run a split tile on each side, so I'm just per-figuring out the layout, because this is the most important row, because everything else Afterwards will just go off this row, so I like how everything is and then all my cup pieces will be on that side. So that way, I only have to cut the tile once instead of cutting twice to do.
Both sides make it a lot easier to stick with the full tile and your main area already so after you got the floor, all cleaned and scraped all your high spots off in this gonna head, then I'm going to get my glue ready. So the floor is been mopped and clean. So that way, none of the dirt particles will stop the glue from working its adhesion properties. So I'm going to do is just dip. The edge of my trowel with nothing, then you're, just gonna, want to work one River time. Careful is pretty much the key. Are you don't want to put it on too heavy the glue will pop up the seams. So I like this, just lay it on.
In the afterward, okay, we're going to start with our first tile and then I'm going to give it about a quarter inch away from each wall. That way, it gives us enough room for expansion and contraction and then also you're going to want to make sure your edges are square off your wall, so that way one sides not wider than each other. I got this guy pushed in. I just want to roll your finger around the edge everything pushed down smooth. Then I like this, give a little twist with my hand and then my next one I'm going to rotate it. So the pattern goes the opposite direction.
