  3. Zombie Grizzly on March 12, 2023 at 9:46 am

    How long for the thinset to dry with the tile on the concrete?

  4. Евгений Г on March 12, 2023 at 9:46 am

    Пол можно выровнять и поднять самовыравнивающийся смесью.., от 2-х миллиметров минимально и 10 сантиметров максимально… И не надо будет мучится со слоем клея…

    I’m laying 16m2 of tiles tomorrow and have watched this video 5 times over so far to pick up the tips. Bought all the stuff from 0:10 earlier today.

    Saw some comments about people not liking the music, but I couldn’t be more opposite, I love the music! For some reason every time I listen to it I get enjoyment out of the audio alone! Great video, keep up the hard work!

    Most distracting music ever

  9. Daniel Yeary on March 12, 2023 at 9:50 am

    You really gonna leave voids under the corners like that? Just asking for a broken tile

  10. Marcus Briddell on March 12, 2023 at 9:54 am

    Absolutely a tutorial that makes everything clear without wasting time.

  11. Surfinturfer on March 12, 2023 at 9:55 am

    This is THE BEST video — thanks for taking the time to explain in detail what to do!!

  12. Guðmundur Auðunsson on March 12, 2023 at 9:56 am

    Wouldn’t leveling cement have been easier than building the huge adhesive base beneath each tile? I’m also afraid that some of the corners of some of these tiles will be fragile since they have no support underneath. But excellent video though!

  13. Joy Faith on March 12, 2023 at 9:58 am

    2:51 I’m sure that was on the set of Bangbros before. 😂

    Do not tile directly onto concrete. Use a decoupler. If you mortar the floor directly to the concrete and the concrete cracks, which concrete often does, the tile will crack too because there is nothing between the concrete and the tile helping to preventing it. There are many products on the market, Schulter Ditra, Mapei Mapguard 2, etc. You dont want to know the cost of having to fix a cracked tile floor.

  16. MJL on March 12, 2023 at 10:00 am

    How can we cut ties without a saw?🙊

  17. Brandon Tabilisma on March 12, 2023 at 10:01 am

    Did you need to place anything underneath the tiles ?

  18. ZIMPLER on March 12, 2023 at 10:02 am

    To a regular person, it looks perfect; however, it is not installed correctly. You need an uncoupling membrane installed on the concrete first.

  19. BD Tiles Designer on March 12, 2023 at 10:03 am

    Very nice tiles design

  20. Dax Plumbing on March 12, 2023 at 10:03 am

    Is it pronounced " go to" or " godew"

  21. Brittny RV on March 12, 2023 at 10:04 am

    Best video I’ve found so far for a simple refresher on technique. That being said, wanna come help with my house? 😂

  22. Michael Demapan on March 12, 2023 at 10:06 am

    For the tile around or underneath corners, what is the proper application of thinset? Do, you just rely on buttering the tile or still need to get thin set in the hard to reach corners of the floor?

  23. Joseph Delvecchio on March 12, 2023 at 10:08 am

    So the cheering wasnt in my head… This is good

  24. Graham Sinyard on March 12, 2023 at 10:09 am

    Pointless music and whooping, had to turn off half way through.

  25. NNN on March 12, 2023 at 10:10 am

    Instructions unclear. Now i got peanut butter under the tiles instead of mortar and mayonnaise in the tile spaces

    It was really challenging to pay attention to the instruction because of all the background noise. Since you did a voice over, maybe you could just remove the soundtrack of the unnecessary noise? It would be so helpful. Thank you.

  28. teddy on March 12, 2023 at 10:13 am

    Do you have to level the floor before laying the tile or can you just pour extra thinset to make up for the low spots?

    Specifically for a laundry room.

    Also would you happen to know if there is a maximum depth for leveling? Like if part of your house is falling down a hill and has a 2 or 3 inch low spot is it safe to have 3 inches of thinset? The reason I’m asking is for a house that has hardwood floors and I’m trying to raise the tile to be level.

  29. thisisnickolaa on March 12, 2023 at 10:14 am

    Very helpful thank you

  30. Janki Jan on March 12, 2023 at 10:15 am

    Well, I had some Bostik Porcelain Mate Cement laying around. Can I use it to fill a 2x3x3 inches hole in the wall?

  31. TheMVCoho on March 12, 2023 at 10:17 am

    Simple math replaces silly midline technique.

  32. Geez on March 12, 2023 at 10:17 am

    What kind of tile is that?

  33. paul cowan on March 12, 2023 at 10:18 am

    Voids under tiles and no expansion joints

  34. AfterEFX Design LLC on March 12, 2023 at 10:18 am

    Much respect! I thought you needed cement board or some sort of sub flooring cover over concrete. If the slab cracks the tile will too right?

  35. LBB Bee on March 12, 2023 at 10:19 am

    Great instructions. The music is a bit distracting, though.

  36. Yehim Stone on March 12, 2023 at 10:19 am

    Dont you need underlayment fabric? Also, tile before cabinets?

  37. joseph lee on March 12, 2023 at 10:20 am

    Too much work. I will get a man to do it.

  38. Memo1955 on March 12, 2023 at 10:25 am

    Nice video despite all the criticism. Converting my garage into an ADU. The foundation is concrete and 30 years old without a single crack. I really do not see any reason to put an underlayment down. I have done tile over concrete before and just wanted a refresher course and the most important thing that I got from this video is using a long straight edge to run my tile against for a straight line. I have already placed all my tile down along straight edges that I’d drawn onto the concrete floor and made all my cuts for all my tile. I was afraid that I would lose my lines when placing the mortar down and my lines would not be straight bc they were covered up my mortar. With the straight edge in place i will be able to start both my vertical and horizontal tiles in place and the rest will follow straight. I am also using the Inline Leveling caps to insure all my tile in level.

  39. Kevin Williams on March 12, 2023 at 10:26 am

    Do you need to use a sub floor on concrete?

  40. Soul Drummer on March 12, 2023 at 10:28 am

    A lot of these tiles will be drumy

  41. Janice Tribbiani on March 12, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Sounds like the voiceover was done during a volleyball game at the beach~

  42. Life Score on March 12, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Good job!

  43. Dan on March 12, 2023 at 10:29 am

    How did you determine the high-point of the floor?

  44. Local Construction on March 12, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Excellent job sir good updat

    Why are all the tile edges empty? With no thinset

  48. Jason Zupke on March 12, 2023 at 10:35 am

    At 2:11, do you realize how many air pockets are under your tiles along the edges. Major weak spots. Or do you fill those pockets in?

  49. tr199yninja on March 12, 2023 at 10:36 am

    That’s a lot of thinset

  50. James Baillie on March 12, 2023 at 10:36 am

    No primer ?
