Deco Tile Installation
  1. Unpack all the Deco Tiles & layout on the floor in a random combination so the colour tones & textures are mixed. Remember Deco tile is hand crafted with all the tiles being made by hand & painted by hand so there will be slight variation in size & a modulation of colour tone throughout the collection “this is the beauty of Deco Tile”. We suggest to create the scale of the installation on the floor first. Once you are happy with the tonal mix then the tiler can start to install the tile from the bottom row and work their way up the wall.
  2. Deco tiles are intended for use on both interior & exterior vertical surfaces. This includes bathroom walls, swimming pool liners & feature walls. Deco Tiles are manufactured to the highest standards of durability . Deco tiles is manufactured in an artisan - inspired process that creates variation in colours, size & textures . Blending is recommended during installation.
  3. Option A Application (Wet)
    • Wetting exterior walls
      Dampen concrete, masonry or stucco wall surfaces with water prior to the application of the Deco Tile.
    • Wetting the Deco Tiles
      The back of the tiles should be completely damp, but free from surface water at the time application. If using a modified mortar, follow manufacturer’s recommendation regarding wetting of tiles and scratch coat.
    • Mortar & weather conditions
      If Deco Tiles being applied in hot or dry weather, the back of each peace should be moistened with a fine spray of water or a wet brush to adequately prevent excessive absorption of moisture from the mortar. If being installed over concrete, masonry or scratch coat substrate, the substrate surface area should also be dampened before applying mortar. Surface should appear damp but free of surface water.
  1. Option B Application (Dry)
    On some interior projects, the use of masonry adhesive offers a fast and easy alternative to mortar. Place adhesive as per adhesive manufacturer’s instructions on the back of each Deco Tile perpendicular to grooves on tile. Press and wiggle tile into place on wall surface until they bottom out. Set tile level and plumb, completing one row at a time.
