Trim-Out Tip: Cleaner Tile Cuts (Sandpaper for Ceramic)

 

Diamonds are ceramic tile cutters best friend. Ok, they are not, but they can sure improve a sanding pad.

 

When cutting ceramic tile, you often wind up with a chipped edge along the cut. Yes, they can die into the corners, but it's still visible at the grout line.

To clean that up, remodeler ben Bogie uses a diamond-crusted sanding pad

"I like to just break the edges after I make the cut. It softens them a little bit."

—Ben Bogie, remodeler

For clean joints, every time.

—This tip was collected onsite at Professional Remodeler's 2017 Model Remodel project in southern Connecticut.
