Large Format porcelain tiles are becoming popular because of their style and less grout. These 24×48 tiles create a modern, durable, and easy to clean floor surface. Many considerations need to be made when installing 24×48 tiles or other large format tiles. It is necessary to do floor prep before hand which may include; grinding high spots; filling low spots with a patching compound or self leveling underlayment (SLU); and/or crack isolation membrane. It is imperative to start with a flat surface within TCNA recommendations of no deviance greater than 1/4″ in a 10′ span. The proper thinset should be selected, preferably one that is rated for Large Format Tile (LFT) or Large Heavy Tile (LHT). We prefer Custom Building Products Prolite or Laticrete LHT.
