Tile Setter

According to experts, being a good tile setter means being thorough and doing things right the first time.

In order to do this, you have to know the codes and guidelines for tile setting.

Section 19.10-1 of the Housebuilding Regulations deals with the application of ceramic tile:

"When ceramic tile is applied to a mortar base, the cement material shall consist of one part portland cement to not more than one-quarter part lime by volume. Mortar should be applied over metal lath (foundation) or masonry. Ceramic tile applied to a mortar base shall be thoroughly soaked and pressed into place, forcing the mortar into the joints while the tile is wet."

Write a paragraph explaining in layman's terms what this section means.
