先铺墙砖?先铺地砖?

在墙砖地砖都要铺的地方,比如淋浴间。应该先铺地砖。确保在墙砖地砖交界处,墙砖在地砖之上。这样水会流到地砖上。建房的时候,也是先subfloor,然后drywall。

如果drywall和floor tiling都要做,建议做完drywall后在铺地砖;因为drywall sanding下来的灰会让地砖的grout变色。不必担心水会流入地砖和drywall的缝隙,因为连接处(地砖上)还要做molding。

Plywood vs OSB

plywood: 多层,每层走向横纵交错成网状,因此更结实。价格贵。

OSB: 由大小不同的碎木块拼接成一块板,抗压承重比plywood弱。价格便宜。

Grout vs Caulk vs Silicone

Grout用于砖缝,起到保持瓷砖间距作用,并无防水功能。

Caulk更适用于修补裂缝,堵住缝隙,有一定防水功能。但不适用于温差大,热胀冷缩剧烈的地方,比如室外或淋浴。

Silicone更能适应温差,更耐磨损,可用在浴缸与瓷砖交接处,水龙头,出水口周围,有防水功能。即便用于室外也没问题。

Sanded vs unsanded grout

sanded: flooring or tile with joints ⅛”- to ½”- thick

Unsanded grout is thinner than sanded grout, so it's easier to work into narrow joints. Therefore, homeowners should use unsanded grout for any joints less than ⅛”-wide. ... The absence of sand makes unsanded grout especially sticky, so it will stay put when tiling a shower wall, backsplash, or other vertical surface.

Subfloor vs underlayment

只有最底的那一层才是subfloor。在这一层上面的都被称为underlayment,很可能有多层,尤其是老房子。比如subfloor上面先是一层水泥,然后又加了一层地板革,又加了一层木地板,最后上面有铺了瓷砖。最上面的瓷砖当然是floor,最下面的一层(南方的房子可能用水泥,北非用plywood或OSB)是subfloor,中间不管有多少层都被称为underlayment.

一层underlayment的下面到底是subfloor呢,还是另一层underlayment? 如何辨别?通常stud是建在subfloor上面的,如果某一层只是和stud相交,而并没有在stud底下,那一般是underlayment。

Drywall Primers vs. Drywall Sealers

Ceramic tile vs Porcelain tile

Ceramic tile:

  • Cost less
  • Easier to install
  • Lighter
  • high maintenance compare to procelain tile

Porcelain tile:

  • Denser and more durable,less likely to crack.
  • Freeze/thaw resistance - makes porcelain a great choice for outdoor use.
  • With porcelain body tile there is less expansion and contraction of the floor.

Mortar(thinset) vs. Tile Adhesive

Drill vs impact driver
