  1. very  sloppy  where the counter top meets the range, should be interesting when they replace the stove

     drywall screws will rust over time, use deck screws

  2. @mypalrocco Americans(well most with anything above a third grrade education) also know how to restrain themselves from juvenile behavior, you however are still acting like an angry third grader who just lost his recess for the third time in a row. Grow up an act like an adult (if it isn't too difficlut for your under-developed intelect).

    Shit, fuck, cock, tits, balls, asshole, motherfucker…what're you going to do about it, cry now? This is America, I have the right to say what I please and nobody is going to tell me otherwise. Also in America, you have the right to not read anything you deem inappropriate. Now go back to the Communist country from which you defected and leave us Americans alone!

  4. @PacificRain53 Hope you don't mind me asking. I was going to tile my countertop in my laundry room, since I have tile and board. So my question is my board will just fit for what I need but the side of my counter is right next to "sink" which I use a lot….canI tile the side of my cabinet to prevent it getting wet as well or should I use something else? Thank you!

  5. @chrismcmahon333 Same concept as the wall, except you don't have to stabilize the tile from falling off the wall.

    First determine what your existing sub floor is and determine what may need to be replaced. Make sure to use 1/4" Backerboard as the tile subfloor. Secure the backerboard with thinset and screws/nails. Then measure and trace your cross-hairs on the floor and begin tiling. I recommend a strong Porcelain versus Ceramic for a Kitchen floor, it's way more resilient.

  6. @fatskateman You can tile over existing Formica, however it's not the ideal way to tile. Make sure to score the surface of the Formica with a utility knife. Scoring it will create a more adhesive surface.

  7. Can anyone please explain to me how you do your setting out for the floor tiles?
    I know how to do it for the walls i get a long thin piece of wood one with the height of the tiles marked and the other side with the with and then mark where the tiles are going to be exactly on the wall until I'm happy. BUT THE FLOOR I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE???? CAN ANYONE HELP ME PLEASE?

  8. Liquid nails over thinset, 2 inch staples over drywall screws, hardi backer doesn't expand. You dont need to put hardibacker on the back wall, tile directly to the wall, unless you want to cap the top and sides.
