This course provides an overview of the key design elements that are required for a successful ceramic tile/stone installation, including a discussion of the importance of properly designed crack isolation, waterproofing, and sound control membranes.
Upon completing this course, you will be able to:
- discuss the critical design elements relating to ceramic tile/stone installations that should be considered during the design and specification phases
- explain the importance of properly designed movement joints in reducing flooring failure
- state the various construction methods and materials used to facilitate a successful ceramic tile/stone installation, and
- explain how the features and characteristics of CPE (Chlorinated Polyethylene) composite sheet membranes in a flooring assembly contribute to the prevention of building movement failures.
