Pebble Tile Shower Installation Steps
1 ) Mask the Drain and Edges.Use easily removed painter’s tape to give protection to the drain before starting the tile work. Also place tape around the shower stall just above the height of where the tile will sit to offer protection to the shower surround.
2) Apply the Thinset. Start in a back corner of the shower and spread thinset on the shower floor with the flat edge of a .25″ x .25″ square-notched spade. Then use the nicked edge of the spade to form ridges in the material holding the spade at roughly a 45-degree angle. Cover an area identical to about 3 sheets of the pebble tile.
3) Set the 1st Pebble Tile Sheet. Press the 1st sheet of pebble tile into the thinset, butting the sheet as near as feasible to the walls. Apply a little pressure to the sheet of tiles to settle it in the thinset.
4) Continue Tiling. Continue to spread thinset and add sheets of tile to the floor, aligning the sheets to interlock. Mix thinset as needed. If there is not room for a full sheet, remove stones as needed from the sheet and put aside, then trim the mesh backing with a knife or scissors and set the leftover portion of the sheet as usual. Also use this method to set the tile around the drain. Optionally for a perfectly straight look a wet tile saw can be used to easily cut the pebbles. It helps to turn the sheet upside down during this process.
5) Tap the Pebble Tile in Place. On top of the tile, place a straight, flat board that covers many tiles and carefully tap it with a mallet to thoroughly set the tile and make sure the pebbles are all at the same height.
6) Seal the Pebble Tile. Natural stone pebble tiles must be sealed before grouting. Check the instructions of your selected sealer and be certain to seal the pebble tile before grouting to make grout removal easier in step 8.
7) Apply the Grout. Spread grout across the tile employing a grout float. Hold the float at a 45-degree angle, working the grout into the areas between the stones.
8) Clean the Tile. Taking care not to drag grout up from between the pebbles, wipe away the haze with a wet sponge. Wash the sponge frequently to keep it clean. Let the grout cure completely according to the package instructions. Employ a clean material to wipe any remaining haziness from the surface of the pebbles.
9) Seal the pebbles and grout. It is important to re-seal the pebbles along with the grout to prevent against mildew and stains. This will also ensure easy cleaning of the pebble tile for years to come with any mild household detergent. For the best results, implement the instructions for the explicit sealer used.
