    Tile adhesive for external use

    About 20 years ago, we had a sunlounge built. It's on a concrete raft about 6m x 5m and it's tiled inside and out with the same tiles, with the outside tiles occupying a band about 1.4m wide on two sides. We have a problem with the external tiles becoming loose over a few years, presumably due...

    London Path tiling with Victorian mosaic tile sheets

    We have some Victorian-style mosaic tiles which we need laid on our front path. They are on mesh-backed sheets so no need to lay individual tiles. Each sheet is 30cm x 30cm. There is a concrete base in place, but this has a crack in it so would need to be levelled beforehand. The whole area...

    Minimum tile adhesive depth for over tiling

    I posted previously about a tiling job that has gone a bit wrong. One wall either needs to come off or ideally be tiled over. The problem with tiling over is a concern that the quadrant shower cubicle may not fit. The shower cubicle has 20mm of adjustment, but 5mm already used, so 15mm left...
