    Hi everyone,
    I am about to get the tile for the enclosure I'm building for my new Uro and I was wondering if it would be safe to put a ceremic tile back splash.

    Back splash tile would be

    Or

    Tile for the floor would be

    Also how would I attach the tile to the wood? Would it be the same as a kitchen floor or would I have to do something extra because of the heat in the enclosure?

    Thanks ahead of time,
    Ashley

    I'm in the same boat and wondering how to keep the siding tiles stuck down. I used liquid nails and had to redo some, and then ended up with some falling off again. I'm kind of wondering if I didn't let the liquid nails sit long enough. My stuff is a little different. I'm using peel and stick all the way around, so it might be different answers.

    i always recommend concrete board for tile. use thinset to adhere them. dont grout those mosaic tiles. that would be a nightmare!
    get std thinset, not speed set unless youre well versed and fast!

    What's concrete board? Not trying to hijack the post, but its information that may be helpful to me as well.

    Um, this is an enclosure not a house floor. You don't need concrete board really.
    Just a flat surface.
    I would think that tile adhesive would work fine for background as the heat lamps are not directed on it.
    For floor you could just cut them and lay in loose. It would be easier for cleaning to just be able to remove them.
