    Is it possible to tile to steel?

    Tilers

    Is it possible to tile to steel and if so what is needed? Can I do this DIY or would I need to hire a professional?

    "Installing ceramic tile on metal is just as easy as installing ceramic tile on concrete. The substrate is hard and rigid, so there is no need to use a concrete backer board. If the metal is horizontal or vertical, use FlexBond Fortified Thin-Set Mortar as an adhesive. FlexBond will work well in either situation.

    Thanks, Heath"
