11 Best Practices to Install Jerusalem Gold Limestone Flooring

by Lisa C. Marketing Writer

Jerusalem Gold is a type of Limestone, a natural stone, that is widely used to create walls and tiles in residential structures across the world. Limestone is a sedimentary rock that forms in the beds of seas and oceans over the course of earth’s history, which is millions of years.

Although the stone is rock-hard, its tiles have a porous surface – because of which many homeowners avoid using it in their home. But, if you are mesmerised with the look of Jerusalem Gold Honed Limestone, you can surely install it, and seal it post installation to block those holes and prolong its performance.

  1. Check out below some of the best practices to install Jerusalem Gold Limestone flooring –
  2. Measure the floor area, and order your tiles based on your measurements and layout plan.
  3. Clear the subfloor of dust and all types of debris. Wipe it if required. Use a self-leveling compound to level the bulges and craters on the substrate. Let it set well.
  4. Now you are ready to install Jerusalem Gold Honed Limestone tiles.
  5. Measure the farthest wall across the bottom. Find its center.
  6. Center is where you should place your first tile. Install the first line of tile across this line. Move from center towards the walls. This will allow you to keep the tiles, you will have to cut to fit, near the edges and corners. That’s how you make your installation less busy.
  7. Mark the tiles that need to be cut. Cut them with the right stone tile cutter to avoid instances like tile damage.
  8. Everything about limestone tiles is unique. Event their shade, texture and pattern. Include tiles from multiple boxes to create an art effect on your flooring.
  9. Do not spread a thick layer of stone tile adhesive. Choose a good quality adhesive instead.
  10. Press the tile gently applying equal pressure across the tile. You could use a large rubber hammer or a stone tile roller to press the tiles after installation.
  11. Use a matching color grout.
  12. Everything set? Now, seal the tile using a limestone friendly sealant. Read the user instructions to finish this job.
