Cutting Glass Tiles

Handles, Electrical Fittings & Glass Subway / Metro Tiles will Jazz up your home!

Set up your wet saw and add the required amount of water. You may find it easier to have the wet saw elevated on a table or bench.

Slowly and smoothly guide the metro tile through the saw. Let the blade/disk do the work. If you push too hard the chipping to the top surface of the tile will become excessive.

Note the chipped edge and haze to the end of the tile, don’t worry this is normal. The white backing will also chip but this will be covered by the tile adhesive. Chipping to the bottom of the tile should be minimal. If large chips to the backing are apparent discard the tile.

Grab your diamond polishing pad or sandpaper block. Be careful not to damage the backing of the tile when polishing. Do not scratch the top surface of the tile when polishing. If the ends of the tile will be on show this can also be polished back to factory finish using a light grit sandpaper or wet & dry.

The end result after cutting & polishing. If you are hiding the cuts under a silicon joint or decorative moldings polishing can be minimal.

No problem with our frosted finish metro tiles also. Should you require exposed ends, when not using a decorative trim, a local glass cutter will cut the tiles for you leaving a factory.
