How to install cement tile backsplash?

You decided on your very special cement tile and want to use it as a backsplash. For the installation, you will need a thin-set, grout, grout float, notched trowel, a sponge, a bucket, a level, a wet tile saw, and a drill with a mixing attachment.

First of all, you need to measure the wall and count how many tiles are needed for the backsplash. Then you need to prepare the space. Turn off the power in your working area and clean the wall. After that, it will be good to arrange the tiles across the wall to see if they are suitable or not. The fourth step is to cut the tiles. To avoid cracking or chipping the cement tiles it is good to use a wet tile saw and make the bottom row and end cuts.

Then you can apply the thin-set. For the light color tiles, it is good to use a white thin-set, if you have darker you can use gray. To apply the thin-set in small sections, use the flat side of the trowel and to spread it and create even grooves use the notched side.

Then, take your first cement tile peace and lay it onto the wall with a slight twist. To allow for expansion at the corner it is important to leave 1/8 inch gap. Start from the vertical border row and put a spacer at the bottom. You can start from the bottom row at the center mark if there is no border. Use spacers between the tiles and continue to work in small sections. 

Sealing and Grouting

Cement tiles are porous and can absorb grout and stain, for this reason, seal the tiles before you apply the grout. It is important to wait for the thin-set mortar to dry, later wipe the penetrating sealer on the tiles. Three hours is good to wait for applying the grout.

Instead of sanded grout, the best thing for the tiles is unsanded grout with narrow grout lines. Use a grout float to spread the grout and it is important to be sure to remove the excess grout from the tiles, for this you can use a damp sponge.

It takes 24 hours to 3 days for the grout to dry completely. After the completely dry, you can apply grout sealant. For a final step, add a little amount of caulk to the base of the backsplash when the sealer is dry.
