Installing Glass Tiles In The Bathroom Shower
When you install glass tiles, precision is important. Here are some ways to install glass tiles in your bathroom shower. Prepare the walls of the shower. Hang the cement backer board using roofing nails or galvanized screws and seal the seams with mesh tape and thinset. Allow the walls to dry overnight. If you’re installing the glass tiles on the floor of the shower, allow the mortar bed shower pan to dry at least seven days before you start. Create a storyboard slightly shorter than the height and length of the shower stall. You do this by laying out tiles and grout lines on a board evenly spaced from the center outward. Hold the horizontal board up and mark the centerline, extending it all the way across with the use of a level. Then, at that line hold the vertical story board up and mark its center and draw the line all the way up and down. Where the two meet, you’ll lay the first tile. Cut the tiles for the corners if necessary.
Clean clear glass tiles with a dry cloth and butter the back with thinset before you apply them. Outside of special tools to cut the glass and application of the thinset, the job is just like laying tile. Measure out any area that needs cutting for the fixtures. Use the special saw for glass tile to do this. Allow the tile to dry overnight. Apply the grout. When you clean the grout, the less water the better. First use a dry cloth to wipe away excess moisture. Use a damp sponge to remove the grout from the tiles, and then dry again. Wait 1/4 hour to allow a haze to develop. Rub off the haze with a clean cloth until the tiles shine.
