    If you have a hob and cooker hood, it looks best to centre this as it's your main focal point..

    The best bit is he's not even finished and it's falling apart . It will be a brave man who takes those spacers out .

    Terrible, but on the bright side, they should be easy to remove and get a reputable tiler to start again. Any tanking ?

  15. jcrtiling rated Bopster's post Agree in the thread Porcelain Sockets on split face tiles.

    Would be much easier with a grinder, porcelain and multi tool doesn’t sound promising

    Feb 20, 2019 at 2:03 PM
  16. jcrtiling rated Bopster's post Agree in the thread Porcelain Sockets on split face tiles.

    I’d think again, porcelain is chuffing hard and multitools aren’t meant for sort of work

    As @Paul C. To get anywhere near decent partially cut in faceplate and also use a bucket of silicone . But yes good luck keeping it clean

    Sounds like a right pain in the bottom, and it’ll still impossible to keep clean

  19. jcrtiling replied to the thread Porcelain Newbie looking for advice on tiles lifting!.

    Yes . Expansion joint should continue from the screed up through the tiles uninterupted

    Feb 20, 2019 at 7:26 AM
  20. jcrtiling rated JulianSidney's post Agree in the thread Porcelain Newbie looking for advice on tiles lifting!.

    I wouldn't put it over joint.

  21. jcrtiling replied to the thread Porcelain Newbie looking for advice on tiles lifting!.

    Anti fracture mat if used would be over the whole area not just the join . But it is not a substitute for an expansion joint.
