Milwaukee Home Builder | Get Yourself Out of A Corner
Alright Creek nation, we are back with some more exciting, uh, talk about how we’re going to be sending some floors and optimizing for the Milwaukee home builders. I think, uh, as of right now, we have a not even made a dent into getting enough content optimized for Milwaukee home builders. So stay tuned. This is pretty exciting stuff. We’re going to be doing this for quite some time. So without further ado, let’s start talking about how we’re making sure that we set titled properly the past episodes we’ve talked about, um, Milwaukee Home Builder making sure you lay out ahead of time or if you want to lay out ahead of time. One thing I forgot to mention is the, uh, how much lasers can actually help this whole process. Because with a laser you can set up a floor and layout a floor with one person because you don’t need someone to hold the other end of a straight edge or a string or a chalk line. And you can actually set the laser up ahead of time to, you know, hold your, your straight line. You can set everything up with that as opposed to trying to draw, draw a square and everything. Lasers are invaluable. I don’t even know if that’s the right word. They are very valuable in terms of setting tile, floors and walls for that matter.
Milwaukee homebuilders is optimizing for, so I’m just going to keep spouting that off in random spots and make sure that it, uh, it could set it up so we can optimize for that baby. So continuing on the floor when you’re actually ready to start setting your floor, you know, for a manufacturer recommendations, you have your spacing picto you get your floor laid out, you’ve got a few pieces you can cut already. Cut The rock. You want to make sure that you’ve mixed the mud properly because if you’re not mixing the mud properly, all this work is going to be for nothing. You want to make sure that when you’re mixing it, you have it, you know, adopt. That remains tacky. So what happens if it starts to, to cure too fast, the tiles won’t actually stick to it. And overtime Milwaukee Home Builder then this top, um, you know, they’ll, they’ll have a good bond to start with if the, uh, if the tile itself doesn’t stick to a year, you’re in pretty bad shape. You need, you need to make sure that the title sticks to it. So you want to make sure that you get the right mixture and that’s not as hard as it seems. It might take a little bit of trial and error,
but what you can do is when you’re, uh, when you’re mixing it basically take your travel in, scope it, and you should be able to actually scope them onto your trial. I’m in a small pile. You should be able to scoop it pretty effortlessly, almost like the consistency of like a frozen frozen custard or something like that where you can scoop a big hunk of it. Milwaukee Home Builder But it’s, it’s not gonna fall off unless you let it slide off. Um, it’s, it’s kind of hard to describe over audio, but it is a, it is pretty important. So you want to make sure that you just follow the manufacturer recommendations. And my other recommendation is if you’re just doing tile for the first time, don’t over mix. Okay? So when you’re mixing it mixed navy, like a quarter of a bag, or sorry, a quarter of a bucket, like a five gallon bucket because it’s really easy to mix too much. And then as you go through that bucket, it’ll, uh, it’ll start hardening on you and you won’t be able to get through the whole bucket before it’s hard and you’ll end up wasting a lot of, a lot of set. Um, so make sure that, uh, that you just follow the, uh, the manufacturer’s recommendations on that. Um, also on top of that, you want to make sure that you know you’re not going to soft because we got too soft.
Um, it won’t really hold your tile very well and they’ll move around. It will take longer. And then the thin set itself also the list itself won’t have as good of a bond if it’s too wet to be as strong. This is also true for when you’re mixing grout in later steps. You want to make sure you don’t go to wineries because once the, uh, once the water dries, Milwaukee Home Builder it’ll, you know, the product will shrink and more or less just the more water that’s in it, the softer the final product will be. Um, so I want know a little bit of a tangent, but anyways, back to, uh, back to reality. You want to make sure that you’re a mixing properly and spreading properly. You want to make sure that you have the right size trawl for the job and there’s a few tricks that you can, that you can use to make sure you have the right size. I’m one of those tricks being like as you’re setting the tile, if you’re getting a lot of mud, was, um, between the joints as you setting it, it means that you have too big of a trawl if you want to size your travel according to the title. And a lot of travel companies or title companies will even put recommended trial size on the tile or on the packaging for the trial itself.
And a way to know if you don’t have enough, a big enough trial is if you set your, Milwaukee Home Builder set your tile down in the mud that you just spread and it feels like it’s rocking or like there’s a hard, a high spot. That’s how you can know that you’re called not big enough or another thing could be your mud wasn’t mixed. Good enough. That’s not quite as common as long as you’re getting good mud. Um, so that being said, but don’t mind the GPS in the background, they’re just trying to.
Anyways, just to make sure you just do your homework. I’m using the right size trial for your right size tile because too much or too big of a trial if you’re just going to have mud was enough everywhere, which is, is better than not enough trial, too small one because then your title is just not going to get a good bond. Um, but it just gets to be kind of a pain in the butt to clean up all that mud was enough. So Milwaukee Home Builder I recommend just taking a few extra minutes and if have extra tiles and finding the proper trial size before you start and you can, you can practice on just a sheet of plywood or closet works, you know, some of that can be seen. But I do recommend practicing before you commit to doing your entire floor. So that being said, no, you’ve got the, uh, the trial sites picked out and the same set ready to go. You’re ready to start setting lucky homebuilders and uh, but I was recommended starting up close to a wall, but also making sure that you, uh, plan your exit.
And what I mean by that is don’t tell yourself into a corner. Make sure that as you tiling, you’ve got, uh, an exit strategy, meaning how you’re gonna, you know, tile and then be able to get out of the room, out of a doorway or some, you know. And sometimes that means, you know, setting the room in multiple stages, meaning, you know, you can only tell so much of it, you have to let it harden and then resumed. Tiling is the next day. Sometimes there’s no other option, but to do that, especially on bigger room. Um, Milwaukee Home Builder so when, when that’s the case, just a, you know, plan accordingly and figure out what’s going to be your most effective way to tile to this room that you’re in Milwaukee, homebuilders, um, you know, and keeping that in mind, you want to make sure when you’re a, once you start tiling, want to make sure you got everything.
You need a head of time planning accordingly. You don’t want to start tiling in the goal crap, I need spacers and then, oh crap, I need more tile. And then, oh crap, I didn’t have the right size trial or oh crap, I don’t have something to clean up the mud that Susan out. So just plan accordingly and make sure that you’ve got everything in. What I would recommend when you’re setting title is having, um, you know, Milwaukee Home Builder obviously the trial size that you need your bucket of mud, your spacers. Um, I would recommend having some sort of small spatula or a, some sort of small, like six inch drywall for something with a straight edge on it, on a metal straight edge, but you can clean up extra fluids, but also so you can pry up a tile if you need to add moderate, take out mud. That’s something that does happen fairly often. Milwaukee home builders.
