Mosaic Installation Process

  • 1. Skimming

    • The installation surface must be smooth and clean to ensure proper installation.
    • It may be necessary to lay a thin layer of setting material on the surface to ensure that it is ready for the tile.
    • Allow 12 hours to dry if layer of setting material is needed.

    NOTE: A waterproofing/anti-fracture membrane needs to be applied to the uniform surface if the mosaic is to be submerged in water, or if anti-fracture or crack isolation properties are necessary. This typically consists of rolling or spraying a liquid, rubbery membrane onto the uniform surface prior to mosaic installation. Please follow manufacturer’s instructions on waterproofing membrane application.

    2. Guide Lines

    • Measure the space in which the mosaic is being installed to determine the best fit for your tile.
    • Use a straight edge and level to help you align the tile as you work.
    • Construct a grid on the substrate that is equal to nine sheets of the tile.

    NOTE: Be sure to account for the spaces between each sheet of tile when measuring.

    3. Applying Setting Material

    • Mix setting material.
    • First coat:apply setting material with the smooth edge of a trowel to a section no larger
    • Than one section of the grid.
    • Second coat: create even ridges in the setting material by “combing” the material with the notched edge of the trowel.
  • 4.Installing the Tile

    • The sheets of mosaic have a clear tape covering on the front face of the tile. This allows the mosaic design to be seen during installation.
    • Apply the backside of each sheet into the setting material, with the tape side face out. 
    • Using a float tool, tap across the surface to adhere the mosaic securely into the setting material.

    NOTE: The space between each sheet of tile should equal the space between each individual tile.

    5. Securing Mosaic Sheets

    • It is important to create a secure bond between the tiles and the setting material.
    • Using the float tool tap across the surface to adhere the mosaic securely.
    • This also ensures the final exposed plane of the mosaic is consistent and uniform in height.

    NOTE: Be sure to account for the spaces between each sheet of tile when measuring.

    6. Adjusting Spacing

    • This can be a time consuming process, but is important to ensure a professional installation.
    • Adjust while material is still wet.
    • Adjust any tiles that are uneven and ensure that all gaps are of equal width and height. Do this by cutting through the clear tape and moving tiles with a small trowel.
  • 7. Grouting

    • Grout can be applied to a clean, dry surface. (See Step 8 “Expansion Joints”)
    • Before applying grout be sure that the mosaic surface is clean and all clear tape is removed from the tiles.
    • Peel tape in a diagonal motion.
    • Thorough cleaning may involve removing excess setting material from the mosaic’s joint with a knife, as well as cleaning off all dust and particles.
    • Spread grout from the bottom up in a diagonal direction using a small trowel.
    • Squeegee in the opposite direction.

    8. Expansion Joints

    • Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” of the mosaic and where the mosaic meets an adjoining surface, such as in a corner. Fill these space(s) with a silicone caulking sealant in place of grout to create expansion joints at these locations.

    9. Cleaning

    • The mosaic should be ready to be cleaned about 30-60 minutes after grouting.
    • Use a sponge and clean water and scrub in a circular motion, removing excess grout and smoothing all joints. Continue to wipe down the tiles until clean.

    NOTE: Cleaning methods vary based upon the type of grout used in the installation. For example, a urethane grout must be cleaned earlier and more frequently that cementitious grout. Please follow the cleaning instructions provided by the grout manufacturer.
