The list below contains some of the most commonly asked questions I get about tile and installation methods. For each one I have included a (very) short answer. I already have, or will have in the future, a post about every one of these. If that post already exists there will be a link at the end of the answer.
I will continue to add to this page as the questions come up. If you have a question just leave a comment at the bottom and I’ll include it on this page.
