Quartz Granite Counter Tops: Ceiling
Granite tile is a popular material in master bathroom settings and ceilings are included in shower enclosures as well as steam showers.
While the overall installation is similar to the wall tiles, any ceiling installations require a little extra work to ensure they line up with everything else and stay on the ceiling over the years.
Measure the dimensions of your shower ceiling. Transfer those measurements to a sheet of concrete board and mark the surface with a pencil. Score the surface of the board with a utility knife along your mark. Snap the board in half along this mark to separate the face of the board and use the utility knife to cut the back side of the cut and free your piece.Mount the concrete board to the ceiling joists.
Screw it in place with screws placed every 3 to 4 inches along the joints.
Mix up some of the thinset mortar in a bucket with the drill and paddle. Aim for a slightly runnier consistency than what the bag calls for since you aren’t using this to install the granite. Go for a thick, creamy yogurt consistency. Spread a thin layer of the mortar onto the ceiling with the flat side of the trowel.

Cover 100 percent of the ceiling in this skim coat of mortar, which burns the mortar into the ceiling. For best results, use the same vertical grout lines from your wall installation and carry those through the ceiling. Use a laser level with a plumb line in addition to a tape measure and pencil to transfer these laser lines onto the ceiling. Mix up thinset according to the manufacturer guidelines.
It should be a thick, creamy consistency when you finish. Apply thinset mortar to the backs of the granite tiles.
Press each individual tile onto the ceiling. Apply firm pressure with both of your hands and move each piece in numerous directions to completely mash the thinset underneath and bond the tile to the ceiling. Make necessary cuts against the walls on the tile wet saw. Keep at least 1/8-inch distance between the edge of a cut and the wall to allow for expansion movement. This gap is covered when you run the wall tile up to meet the ceiling. Allow the installation to dry for 24 hours.
Press grout into the grout joints with a grout float. Allow the grout to set up for 20 to 30 minutes until it starts to harden in the joint. Fill a bucket of water and dampen a sponge. Wash in circular motions to remove the grout from the face of the granite. Rinse the sponge out and clean-wash the tiles.
Work diagonally across the joints, not with the joints.
Larger tiles will require a larger notch, and smaller tiles vice-versa. Granite tiles are meant to be installed tight to each other, so no spacers are needed. Instead, use your pencil lines or keep the laser level on while you install to guide your installation.
