How do I handle setting Crema Marfil?
I have about 40 to 50 sq feet of 16" x 16" Crema Marfil Marble that I need to fill into areas where tile was not previously laid. I tried to do the research here and elsewhere on what product to use for setting the tile (thin-set) but, came out scratching my head. The Marble floor is laid very tight. Most of the areas will be under cabinets but there is a large 2' x 7' area that will be exposed. Can you tell me what notch to use and do you need to butter the back of the marble with this size tile? Do you think a novice tile layer can handle tight marble or should I get someone in to do it? We laid rec. 24 x 24 tiles with a 1/16th space and did pretty good but nervous about this project.
