Hi, I’m after some help please. I had someone come tile my en-suite and it was looking ok until the grout stage. I went in to look after it had been grouted and there is loads of scratched tiles all either in a corner or along a grout line. The tiler says it’s nothing to do with him and I must have done it cleaning! I haven’t cleaned, I’ve literally had a look round but what could have caused them? I’ve also got massive grout and silicone problems but will post some pictures of the scratches. Thank you in advance […]
Some advice would be greatly appreciated! So I'm putting in wet underfloor heating and limestone tiles in kitchen/living. The underfloor heating pipes will be laid inside 20mm routed cement coated xps board which can be tiled directly on top off. My question is, would an 18mm plywood subfloor (directly on joists) be adequate, or should I go for a 25mm subfloor? The joists are at 400mm centres and will be strengthened with noggins. Thanks in advance!
How smooth does the floor surface need to be before laying porcelain tiles? I have removed tiles and theres bits of adhesive stuck to the floor causing small bumps, theres a few pits too. Can I lay tiles straight over this?
Hi everyone, first time here as a first time buyer in a flat where literally everything needs doing, and now I have no money, so DIY here I come! So I've started on the bathroom, and have been removing the wall tiles, and they've pretty much been falling off in big sections, coming off with the tiles and underneath on the wall, is this kind of weird sandy stuff, the main bits on the wall are relatively solid, but some bits are soft like wet sand by the shore! What is this please? What do I do? Will my place […]
After some advice please….. We have approx. 50sq m of Dijon limestone 600 x 90 x15mm and also 50 sqm of porcelain wood effect 1200 x 200 x 10mm to lay. This is going onto a 55mm Cemfloor liquid screed (with wet UFH) that was put down about a year ago so should be dry! Really after some thoughts? Was going to use Durabase CI+ and I realise I need a flexible adhesive but there is a dizzying array to choose from! Having read some of the feedback here I've ruled out a couple. I have a trade account at […]
Hi everyone, I'm having the majority of the ground floor of my house tiled (35m²) and I'm not sure which way to go from a subfloor / prep perspective. Here is the current set-up: Suspended timber floor at 450mm centres Wet underfloor heating system between joists in a pug screed Tiny bit of deflection ( 6mm backerboard > tile Option 2: 22mm t+g wise sprucefloor plywood on joists > ditra mat or dura base > tile (plywood will be sealed on both sides before installation) Option 3: Knauf gifa floor instead of plywood – way too expensive and don't like […]
Looking for some advice. I want to tile a floor but it runs out by 20mm on one side. The levels are all over and wanted to know the best way of levelling it before tiling. The floor has already been concrete boarded as the floor was a mess
Can anyone on this forum please help? Part of the beautiful white silicon seal around my bath has turned pink! Can anyone suggest what I could do to remedy this, short of replacing the seal (which I'm loathe to do since its only 2 months old). Any helpful suggestions would be gratefully received.
