Tile Floor 

The floors of a structure that is covered with tiles are referred to as tiles floors.

Method of Construction:
  • The ground is solidified.
  • A layer of clean m-sand minimum 10cm thick.
  • Base concrete is formed by laying 10cm thick Lime Concrete or Lean Cement Concrete with ratios 1: 4: 8 and 1:8:16 likewise. It is properly cured with water.
  • Screed battens are used to spread a thin coating cement mortar, which is then correctly levelled and secured at a suitable height.
  • When the surface mortar has cured adequately, a 6mm thick bed of cement mortar at a ratio of 1:5 is laid and tiles are placed on top.
  • Any excess mortar which gets out of the joints is wiped off.
  • Tile Joints are filled with suitable epoxy
For tile laying on the first floor onwards, we can omit the first three steps.
