How do you do the outside and inside corners?  With wood, easy.  But, with stone??  
I am doing a hallway with a jog in the middle.


Sorry for the delay, inside and outside corners for ceramic tile are generally mitred on a wet saw with a mitre jig or sometimes a right angle grinder and sponge are used. For inside corners you can meet the base tile flush without a mitre and the grout hides the joint profile.

I can answer questions about, Grout and ceramic tile restoration and installation. This topic generally focuses on new or old installations that have an existing problem. I can offer advice on how to correct common made installation mistakes. Such as, cementitious grout problems, efflorescence, ghosting, shading, and flashing. And tile installation problems such as, floor deflection, slip resistance, loose tiles, vapor transmission and many others. These are just a few of the problems associated with new tile and grout installations. I can also offer advice with restoring old tile and grout problems such as, sealer removal, re-sealing, grout re-coloring, grout repair, and caulking.


Have worked in many different phaces of construction since 1983, I am owner / operator of a Tile & Grout installation and restoration business. I am also a technical advisor for The Grout Dye Company. since 1995.
