Tidy tiles:
Floor Tiles

Beautiful tiles are a good solution in many areas of the house – whether in the bathroom, kitchen or living rooms.
You can only find the matching PROBAU quality products for your tiling project in your BAUHAUS centre.


This is how it works:

In rectangular rooms, place a guideline in the middle of the floor and
parallel to the walls. Start working along this with a joint or with the middle of a tile.
Then lay a (possibly suitably cut) row of tiles along the wall.
First lay out the tiles in a "dry" run. Work your way along,
section for section. (Don't forget the joints when measuring and laying out!)
according to the instructions on the packaging, but only mix as much as can be processed within the "working time". Then comb onto the surface with the notched trowel.Mix PROBAU Flexible Adhesive according to the instructions on the packaging, but only mix as much as can be processed within the "working time". Then comb onto the surface with the notched trowel.
The notches on the trowel depend on the selected tile (with floor tiles, 6-8 mm notches are usual).
The adhesive must cover the entire subsurface, i.e. there must be no gaps underneath the tiles. Place the tiles, one after the other, into the mortar bed and press them in ...
 
... and lightly pat with the rubber hammer. Tiles should never "crunch" on the subsurface!
Tile corners, or tile spacers help to ensure uniform joint spacing.
Check the dimensional accuracy at regular intervals with the spirit level: You can make corrections within the first thirty minutes.
The finished tiled floor must be allowed to dry out for 2-3 days. Mix
PROBAU Tile Grout Wide
according to the processing instructions and work diagonally to the joints using a rubber squeegee.
 
Sprinkle the joints with dry wide-joint sealant. This promotes uniform drying and thus colour continuity.
Gather the sprinkled material after a few minutes; this helps to pre-clean the slurry grouted tiles.
Finally, wet wipe with a sponge board and polish with a dry cloth.

Expansion joints in the wall base are injected with PROBAU Bathroom Silicone
.

 

Good to know: When tiling using the so-called thin-bed method, the surface must be absolutely flat, as the flexible adhesive does not compensate for unevenness. Important with freshly levelled subsurfaces: Screeds must be completely dry. This takes about 4 weeks.
