IF, however, you are trying to specify it for bidding purposes, you should specify mechanically attached lath, scratchcoat, and thinset per tile manufacturers recommendation.

Re: Tile Installation Over Exterior Brick Wall


How much wall are you talking about?

Where will you start on the bottom and finish on the top?

Will you stop under a soffit? How deep is the soffit?

How is the condition of the brick, why do you want to cover it?

Where are you located?
