Tiling Courses

TilersForums.co.uk has supported the tiling training industry right across the UK since 2006. The owner of Tilers Forums used to teach tiling when he created Professional-ITT.

PITT was the first independent training centre for tiling, that wasn’t an adhesive company just hoping to get tilers hooked on their brands.

Ever since, Tilers Forums UK has supported all training centres. And these are the discussion threads.

  • Just testing this footnote that'll help users asking about Schluter Systems, Kerdi, Wedi – and even just the word wetroom will trigger the footnote to show below the posts in a thread. Should be first page of a thread only. These footnotes will be styled in due course, I'm first off just getting them working and loading right, and when a thread mentions 'adhesive' and 'wetroom' the footnotes should share the traffic 50/50. If my coding is any good. ha
  • Hi lads, what do you think of pfocus.com which sells resin oriented infill for those places where we dump grout and caulk in the wet rooms. Is their idea that resin is going to be the bathroom saviour over cracked and shrinking grout a reasonable claim? Has anybody seen fit to use it, and what is the experience? Wazaps
  • Hi everybody, I've come up with a new way that I'd like the forum to work. I've built a quick test site here: https://www.tilerstalk.co.uk/forums/tilersforums-2-0-test-forum.411/ All forums tend to be on the cliquey side, its in their nature. New members may appear less knowledgable because they're not contributing as much when in fact they could be an expert in a certain area of the industry. So I've tried to come up with a way to include all companies, in a fair and balanced way. In the sidebar on the test site you will see several brands, and each one links to […]

  • Hi Everyone, Does anyone have any advice about the best way to do a herringbone pattern on a wall in a bathroom? Do you start with a batten at 45 degrees and then build up from there? Thanks, David

  • I've recently bought Johnson 'Orkney Stone' ceramic floor tiles from B&Q. Paid to have them professionally laid. At the time I asked if they needed sealing. The tiler told me since they were ceramic (not porcelain or natural stone) they didn't need to be sealed. B&Q website states these are glazed which put my mind at rest. They've been down a week and they're terrible. They seem to attract dirt, soak up marks and every shoe print/scuff etc.Worst part is they are un-moppable. I've tried every type of mop/cleaner and they stick like velcro to the tile surface. I chose […]
  • Do any of you guys think that wooden architraves look out of place in a fully tiled bathroom? (walls & floor) What other options are there?
  • This was such a fun yet stressful project. I had to reglaze most of the black trim tile due to the fact that they weren't finished on all sides.
