  • We are in the process of planning to lay concrete 400x400x40mm pavers and will need to cut quite a few of them (approx 40). Hiring a saw works out to be quite expensive (have 2nd project a bit later on) so am looking at options to purchase a DIY tile (paver?) cutter and have come across the Clipper TT200 which looks like it may do the job. The Clipper spec mentions a max cutting depth of 40mm. Will the Clipper be suitable to cut the above concrete pavers – will the included blade be suitable or should this be upgraded […]

  • Hi all. I've read a few forum comments or articles about the dangers of laying tiles over floating floors due to deflection and cracking of grout/tiles. Was just wondering if there was any sort of floating substrate board where a professional tiler would be comfortable laying tiles on? Hypothetical: A 12 or 18mm thick dimpled acoustic underlay laid over the structural floor slab. Then, two layers of 6mm thick CFC, laid 90degrees to eachother so as to provide superior strength across the joins (less deflection). Would anyone here feel comfortable laying tiles onto that total 12mm thick CFC in that […]
  • Hi guys this need help I layed some gritty outdoor dark tiles but they get water stain and hold the dirt and don’t look good. I tried Dunlop enhancing sealer but it’s rubbish. Does anyone know of a heavy duty permeating wet look sealer?
  • Hi Guys, hoping someone can give me some advice on this. My alfresco concrete slab is tiled. As the slab is 1m above ground, I have a brick retaining wall around it. There's a gap/void between the alfresco slab and the brick ret. wall of around 100mm. The tiles go right to the brick ret. wall, so the last row of tiles go over the gap/void. This has caused some of the tiles to lift, crack, etc. Upon inspection, it looks like the tilers used some floor leveler or something similar and went over the void to cover it all […]
  • Hey guys, i have been a tiler for 15+ years and employ a few senior tilers as well with 20+ years experience each. We have always tried to stick to the australian standards and follow the manufacturers instruction. Except now i have a lawyer client who i trying to screw me to the letter of the law. Apparently an inspection report has come back stating that all my movement joints must be 6mm at least. When the rectified edge tiles have gaps of 1.5mm that means my silicon joints/expansion joints/internal joins will have a 6mm gap between floor to wall. […]
