So youve moved into your new apartment and you find that your floor is in bad shape. So you decide to tear out the old floor tiles and put in new ones. But beware! Ceramic tile installation is not as easy as it looks. So before you begin tearing out anything from the floor take a few and learn more about what you need to prepare for when starting on installing your new ceramic tiles. Here are three great tips on what to prepare for when planning your ceramic tile installation: 1) Identify what kind of floor you have - or rather your subfloor. Knowing the kind of subfloor youll be setting your ceramic tiles over is important.

For plywood subfloors be sure that the wood is at least 1 and 1/8 inches thick and is supported by an equally strong underlayment. Otherwise your ceramic tiles will dislodge easily or worse break and need replacing. Concrete floors are the most ideal subfloor surface to work with. But before you can start installing ceramic tile flooring over it it must be cleaned thoroughly. For dust and other debris sweep and then mop your concrete subfloor surface and allow it to dry completely. Smooth concrete surfaces must be rough sanded just like vinyl floors to allow the tiling mortar some grip.
