Tile in Bath

I am about to install Avaire in our bath and need to know if the tile should be cut around the toilet or if the toilet may be installed over the tile?

Tile always goes under the toilet.

We suggest you pull the toilet, and install the Avaire Tile up to the flange. Please be sure to caulk the tile around the flange thoroughly to ensure a water-tight seal to protect against the enevitable overflow scenario.

Thanks so much for the fast response to my question. We are remodeling a master bath so the old toilet is already pulled and a shinny new one is in a box in the garage waiting. We have decided to go with the camel tile / Bark grout and hope it comes out as nice as the display at our home center!

Thanks again for the fast reply to my question. I planned to get started laying tile Saturday and now I think I'm ready!

Will do!

Just picked up a nice used wet saw from a friend for 20 bucks and bought a new blade....plan to start the install first thing tomorrow morning. Will get a snap shot to you when I get the tile in. should go fast since its only 8 boxes of tile to put down...(laughs during typing)

Success!

We have a Tile Floor in our Bathroom!!!!

I want to wait till the rest of the fixtures are in before sending any pics but I will get them to you as soon as ready.

Tile went in really fast, (40sq ft. in about 3 hours including grout work) I was a little worried about what kind of mess and hard work grouting would be, but I was worried for nothing. followed the instructions and cleaned as I went (stopped about every 3 feet to clean) and lightly wiped over the seems. I couldn't get the seems to stay absolutely flush with the top of the tile but the deepest grout seem is only about 1/16" below the surface of the tile. I don't want to sound like I'm bragging but if you ask me, the results look every bit as nice as if I had contracted the work out.

Thank you Avaire!!!!
