    the marks are just corners of stone that have been open to elements inside and daylight

    just started a new job with a mandarin stone 500x random . cant remember the name . Darren ( freeze) do you recognise this one.Ive been put on their recommended list for weybridge!!! stone beautifully cut square and even thickness. client received stone a month ago and brought in to house and stacked the tiles slightly offset on top each other so that they were easy to pick up. when bringing stone in to area to be tiled can see that the parts of the tiles that were exposed to air and sunlight have changed colour. this is clearly visible on photos. any ideas about how to get rid of these marks or what causes them having flagged them up i have been asked to fix regardless in the belief of client that what was hidden from light / air will change colour when exposed and fixed . £ 100.00 to the man that can suggest a cleaner that will get rid of marks without having to wait and guess. i ve thrown the whole innards of cleaners in my van and wont touch it

    jonnyc replied to a thread Vase in Stone Tiling Forum
    I joined and and had a look at some of the work . some real quality but rainer is way better than any of the others as he is on our forum.its not just his tiling/stone fixing abilities it is more the whole package he can offer a client with his drawings /visualisations etcc. i showed some of the more unusaul stone fixing i do especially with antique reclaimed and found that some liked it and others indifferent probably because i dont fix the correct german way. rainer has said that they do not have forums like ours in germany because the time served pros have no time for non toimed served people like my self whatever work they put out. this is why rainer likes tiler forum as there is a mix of all sorts of oddballs that ended up in tiling game

    i am sure as can be that you are not supposed to cut with face down. ive had the sigma 9m and 10m for more than 15 years and they are great saws but in fairness i have not used much on porcelain.

    oh yes i forgot to mention that the 915 x 457 x 10mm calacatta from mandarin were terribly bowed inversally. just too thin for a tile of this size.but i have to say that using the raimondi levelling pegs as recommended by gary the tiler worked a treat.have tried before with porcelain without great sucess.this job has been the biggest mare i have had for a very long time and i have not had the heart to chronicle the problems but hpoefully in next few eeks i can show a reasonbable result with a very flawed product

    here is a few pics of my current ongoing disaster of a job . turkish marble field tile 900x 900 . consignment was so bad that we could only lay 100 sq mts out of 300. had to get the other 200 sq mts reduced to 870 x 870 to get rid of the chips on edges. whilst transporting the stone 50 sq mts dropped and broken and the hydraulic hose burst over tiles on way up to london so more damage. been one big struggle and now find today find the templated treads are all wrong . sometimes you want to give up but we have to find a way and we have . now have a bed thickness of 5mm to 40mm behind riser length of approx 1200mm. if you ever have to do curved staircase make sure you cover yourself plus loads . bed thicknes left to right 7-20mm. anyway good to be challenged

    It's a whole tile, ceramic. There isn't really anything to grout once they're fitted, they just butt up to each other.
