Step one: Surface prep
It's imperative that you always prepare your surface accordingly as this will impact the final outcome of your product. Weber recommend using their additive and surface-coating products that you can apply before and after your surface preparation. Products best suited for surface preparation would be Bondit, Barrier Flexkey, surface coating, Keyit, Plaskey coating, universal bonding aid and decorative waterproof coating. These products are durable, water-resistant and work on flexible surfaces.
Step two: Adhesive
Once your surface is prepped, you can now look into adhesive products. Weber offers adhesives for ceramics, porcelain, clay, mosaic, marble, sandstone and slate. Special formulas have been made to ensure varied setting times and are suited to flexible surfaces.
Step three: Grout
The final step is grouting. Your surface has been prepped and your tiles have been placed; now it's time to complete the final look. Two options are available in grout - tile grout (nine colours are available) and barrier waterproofing tile grout (two colours). These two products are based on dry and wet interiors, and will ensure that your surfaces are left looking as if a professional completed them. Additional products can be used to guarantee extra strength.
