Exterior Tile Installation Guide
Tiled exterior features—such as walls, patios, and walkways—make a powerful first impression. A well-executed exterior installation can attract customers to a business, add curb appeal to a home, or complete a public space. Although worthwhile, exterior installations present potential complications as there may be great temperature variation between the summer and winter months. Before any installation, substrate condition, environmental factors, and the intended use of the space must be considered. These factors are especially critical for exterior applications, and must be taken into account through every project step—from product specification to installation. The right installation materials—effectively installed to work as one system from substrate to sealant—help outdoor tile installations withstand the elements and protect building owners in the future.
