Installation - Ceramic Tile


  • Choose a corner along a straight long line and begin to install and fasten one panel at a time.

  • Install all panels with the grain set at right angles to the floor joists.

  • Offset panel edge from the subfloor edges by a minimum of 12” – all panels.

  • Leave a 1/8" wide space between panels and 1/4" wide space between panels and any restraining surface which they abut, such as columns or perimeter walls, to allow for expansion.

Tile must not be installed on Multiply® underlayment with epoxy or modified epoxy emulsion mortar unless it is installed with 1/4" gaps between panels

  • Start from a panel corner and fasten row by row to the opposite side. Do NOT four-corner fasten first.

  • Use full body weight over the area being fastened to assure firm contact with the subfloor.

  • Fasten panels every 2” along the edges and 4” across the field, on every X.

  • Position fasteners 3/8” to 1/2” in from panel edges.
