You’ll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner. If the floor you’re covering with ceramic tile flooring is other than concrete, you’ll either have to lay concrete first or lay concrete backing boards.

Otherwise, your ceramic tiles will dislodge easily, or worse, break and need replacing. Concrete floors are the most ideal subfloor surface to work with. But before you can start installing ceramic tile flooring over it, it must be cleaned thoroughly. For dust and other debris, sweep and then mop your concrete subfloor surface, and allow it to dry completely.

It was then, and remains today, the most widely built housing style ever seen in America. This house plan style had its heyday from 1949 to 1965 for several reasons.

Soldiers returning from World War II wanted to settle down and begin raising families. With the demand for homes at an all time high, the simple form and lack of detail made the ranch house floor plan much faster to build than a stately Tudor style home. Formal foyers and spiral staircases were discarded and replaced by level entries and single story plans.
