Can you put tile trim on after tiling?
If you are going to use a trim to finish your edges, we recommend matching the colour and material trim with the actual tile before you begin installing.

What is a mitred tile edge?
A mitred edge is one of the options available to you when tiling external corners. A mitred tile is a cut at a 45 degree angle along an edge, essentially removing the ‘biscuit’ or underside of the tile. An quality tiler can create a beautiful mitred edge, without chipping or damaging the edge of the tile.
Should tile be laid diagonally or straight?
The diagonal pattern can make a small room look bigger. If your walls aren’t perfectly square, a diagonal layout will hide imperfections. However, because the tiles no longer line up with your walls, setting tiles on the diagonal increases the number of cuts you have to make at the perimeter of your installation.
Can I use a wet tile saw to cut pavers?
Cutting Pavers With a Masonry Wet Saw A wet saw makes a clean cut all the way through a paver. Saws that are capable of cutting pavers are simply large versions of the wet saws you can rent for cutting ceramic tile. Water sprays onto the blade during the cut to minimize heat and dust.
What to mark tiles with for cutting?
Basic cuts Mark the tile with a lead or grease pencil. Set the tile against the fence on the sliding saw bed and line up the diamond blade with the cutting mark. Turn on the saw and wait for water to flow over the blade. Hold the tile on both sides of the cutting line and slowly feed it into the blade.
