Installing broken tile porch

You install broken tile the same as unbroken, except you have irregular grout lines. If you are breaking the tile yourself, you will have some control over fitting the pieces together like a puzzle.

If the tile is an exterior application, you should use frost proof tiles recommended for outdoors. It is also recommended that tile be installed over concrete underlayment. Any movement in wood floor beneath will result in grout failure and "broken" tiles.
