After the tiles were removed I added a thin coat of tile set to create a flat surface to set the new tiles. I placed a new tile into the space to verify the depth. It should be deep enough so that the new tile is slightly recessed relative to the surrounding existing tile to allow for the final layer of tile set.
I did make the mistake of starting at the corner with the cut tile and working toward the middle. I found when I got to the middle of the shower that the two remaining tiles were larger than the remaining space. Either the new tiles were slightly larger than the old ones, the lugs were larger, or I had not placed the new tiles snug next to their neighbors. I should have started at the middle and worked toward the one piece that had to be cut. It was easy enough to fix. I cut a small sliver off of the last two new tiles and they fit perfectly into place.
The prep work is by far the longest part of replacing the cracked tiles. Take the time to do the prep work correctly and setting and grouting the new tiles will be easy to complete and your tile replacement project will be a success.
