Before installing Maximo, make sure your floor is clean, dry, stable, and level. Then, prime the floor using ECO Prim Grip.


With Maximo tile, you’ll want to use a mortar designed for large format tile, such as UltraFlex LFT, making sure to back butter the tiles as you go.

Set Your Tile!

Set tiles using the nippers, leveling strips, and caps found in the Rubi Tile Level Quick Kit.

Use 1/16 inch spacers as you install the tiles for even spacing.


Lastly, grout with your preferred color of FlexColor CQ.
