  • Hello everyone I have a question I have installed hex polished marble san dona tile in my shower floor and 3×6 on the walls. I'm not sure what to use on the floor for grout sanded or un sanded…. I have ~1/8 joints. Thanks for the input
  • I've had no luck identifying this wall tile with online reverse image searches and would be more than grateful if someone can help me identify it here! My apartment building is over 100 years old, and this wall tile was probably installed 50+ years ago. Maintenance is no help so I'm taking action into my own hands. The tile is 6"x8"
  • Hi folks. I hired a guy to hang and prep backerboard around my tub surround, so that I can start tiling it. However, when I came home I discovered that he’d used drywall mud/joint compound not only to connect the drywall to the backboard, but used it to feather down several inches to flatten out from the joints all around. Additionally, he filled in the 3/8” thick gap between the bottom of the backboard and the tub edge, also using drywall mud.

The tiles are Arto Artillo. I’m trying to minimize the possibilities of efflorescence. Are there thin sets which don’t contribute to efflorescence?

Is there a calcium aluminate grout with large grain sizes or is there a recipe someone has used […]
  • Greetings All, appreciate the expertise existing in this forum. I am a home remodeler, not a professional, but have done 4 homes completely down to the studs, including many many square feet of tiling floors, wall, ceiling, bathroom. I have a very difficult problem to diagnose.

My question is, if the shower was built correctly, would it be normal for water to make it to the pan liner at all? Here is […]
  • The shower pan on my all tile 70 year old shower started to leak. I have access the the underside of the shower and am also replacing the old galvinized pipes which are rusted through, in fact this is what alerted me to the pan leak. I want to replace just the pan and the drain. The wall tiles look great. Took out the floor tiles and first two rows of wall tiles, the pan and the subfloor. The stud walls and the floor joists are fine. Due to it's age there is of course no waterproof membrane just a […]
