    Default What will happen next

    Based in Southern Spain.Customer of mine wanted small back garden levelled and then tiled over, about 10 sq metres.
    Seen the work this morning and the builder has levelled and put down a screed base about 2 to 3 inches thick.
    He has tiled on top after a day and I am concerned if this is what should have happened.
    As there is no specialist adhesives over here what is likely to happen next.

    screed or concrete base? If just screed to earth it wont last long.
    mind you it depends on how good its meant to be; less extrememes of weather and low footfall plus fairly sound soil / stone substrate it might be ok for a while - there is plenty of cheapo work done there too.
    Re adhesives, you will find the adhesives supplied there from tile specialists same as here. Bit more spread geographicaly perhaps.
