tile stairs

Don't know if anyone mentioned it yet,
but wooden stairs probably FLEX as you
walk up and down them.

So, one of the problems with tiling them
will be that the tiles and grout DON'T naturally flex.

A way to combat the problem is to put
an additive in the material you set them with that increases flexibility,
or use a flexible material for setting them-- not cement.

They also make an additive for the grout,
that makes it more flexible.

In the course of researching how to put some stairs on my newly
finished patio with the pottery shard mosaic wall, I came across the
following that might be of value to you as you investigate tile stairs:

Cancel stairs.

Order rubber ramp.

Learn how to vulcanize.
