    Wall and Floor Tiling Job in East London (Ilford)

    I need a floor tiler to lay large format porcelain tiles on the floor and the skirting.

    The floor is a newly built extension. The current floor is 12mm marine plywood on top of chipboard which is attached directly to the joists.

    I have chosen but not yet bought the Porcelain tiles. I have received some conflicting advice on whether to use ditra mat so will need professional guidance on that.

    You'll certainly need an uncoupling membrane now that you've put ply down.

    Hi, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I really wish that we hadn’t built the extension. It is almost impossible to get consistent honest advice or good quality work. I’m so fed up! It was actually put down by a professional carpenter. I saw his membership card.
    I’ve spent so much money already that it feels like I am throwing it down the drain! Can I ask whether I need to let the matting / cement board dry and for how many days. Thank you.

    Overboard with Hardie or no more ply. Looks like you have enough room by patio doors for tile as well.

    I thought it looked a bit tight at the doors for backer board plus tile.
    How much room have you got there?
    The floor looks a bit wavy too but that might be the photos.

    you know it would be the chip, he wouldn't want to loose out on a bit of work. Same as plasterers want to fully plaster rooms to be tiled and if your really lucky the painter will jump in and paint the lot as well
