I assure you children know foul language. We all knew them in the first grade. It’s the first thing you learn in school.

@gwhand39

@gwhand39
Because I JUST found out how stupid you actually are…duh!

@mypalrocco so why keep replying?

A) How …
@gwhand39

A) How terribly ironic that you should lecture me and refer to education, or lack thereof, and then misspell the word “intellect” of all things, amongst the other misspellings! You are not very bright and therefore, you’re beneath me…you’re not even worthy of my attention, you fucker!

@mypalrocco …
@mypalrocco Americans(well most with anything above a third grrade education) also know how to restrain themselves from juvenile behavior, you however are still acting like an angry third grader who just lost his recess for the third time in a row. Grow up an act like an adult (if it isn’t too difficlut for your under-developed intelect).

@gwhand39
Shit, …

@gwhand39
Shit, fuck, cock, tits, balls, asshole, motherfucker…what’re you going to do about it, cry now? This is America, I have the right to say what I please and nobody is going to tell me otherwise. Also in America, you have the right to not read anything you deem inappropriate. Now go back to the Communist country from which you defected and leave us Americans alone!

@mypalrocco You …
@mypalrocco You just did. Yes people who have children do use foul language, but this is not the forum for that kind of speech.

@gwhand39
So? …

@gwhand39
So? People with children don’t use “foul language?” Listen, if I wanted to hear from an asshole, I would’ve farted!

@mypalrocco Why the …
@mypalrocco Why the foul language? Is it really neccessary?! No. Remember, there are people with children who watch these videos!

@007dawn I …
@007dawn I understand now what you want to do. Ok first you will need to use a 24 or 36 grit sandpaper to rough up the side of the cabinet or the tile glue wont stick. After roughing up the side, wipe it down with a damp cloth or sponge to remove sanding dust. Spread glue or mastic (same thing different names), set tile, grout you are done. Anything else you need, just reply to this, good luck.

@PacificRain53 The …
@PacificRain53 The side of the cabinet itself ….down to the floor….I use the sink for the dog and for my garden stuff…..so I do’nt want water hitting the cabinet and ruining it…not to say I will but just in case. Does that make sense? And thank you so much for your response! I’m very appreicative.

@007dawn Im not …
@007dawn Im not quit sure what you are asking me, but if are you wanting to tile the edge of the cabinet, then yes use tile. You can either use what is called a “VEE” cap or use a bullnose tile on top hanging over so you can place a cut piece of tile under it to give it a finished edge. If I had your email address, I could send you some drawings.

@PacificRain53 …
@PacificRain53 Hope you don’t mind me asking. I was going to tile my countertop in my laundry room, since I have tile and board. So my question is my board will just fit for what I need but the side of my counter is right next to “sink” which I use a lot….canI tile the side of my cabinet to prevent it getting wet as well or should I use something else? Thank you!

@PacificRain53 i …
@PacificRain53 i agree. that video makes many mistakes. did mine with my dad last month and i used 1/4″ very true pacific rain

I have been …
I have been installing tile for over 25 yrs and found this video is giving a lot of wrong information such as: you use 1/4″ board on your tops not 1/2″, you do not use board over the drywall for the backsplash. You can remove the drywall then install the board, but never over the top. I have noticed that tile setting is not done the same way from the east coast to the west coast and also from Canada. Talk to an actual tile setter, he should give you proper information on setting tile.

Thankyou this …
Thankyou this instruction would be very helpful..

Mortar between the …
Mortar between the plywood and backerboard just helps reinforce the base and makes it very solid.

can anyone tell me …
can anyone tell me why use morter between the plywood and the backer board,
why not just use screws?

Notice they don’t actually show them making the cut around the sink hole.This is the part I was wanting to see.

@mypalrocco i’m a kitchen fitter, i see black mold 90%of times on tiled counters, and 99% on bathrooms specially tilled bath over hange area (horizontal area)

@mickyboy200768
Isn’t that what cleaning is about? You know, wiping down the counters with bleach like I do with my Formica counters?

@chrismcmahon333 …
@chrismcmahon333 Same concept as the wall, except you don’t have to stabilize the tile from falling off the wall.

First determine what your existing sub floor is and determine what may need to be replaced. Make sure to use 1/4″ Backerboard as the tile subfloor. Secure the backerboard with thinset and screws/nails. Then measure and trace your cross-hairs on the floor and begin tiling. I recommend a strong Porcelain versus Ceramic for a Kitchen floor, it’s way more resilient.

@fatskateman You …
@fatskateman You can tile over existing Formica, however it’s not the ideal way to tile. Make sure to score the surface of the Formica with a utility knife. Scoring it will create a more adhesive surface.

Appreciate the recommendation. Let me try it out.
