I've had to replace an electric shower and have been left with a hole on a tiled wall in bathroom. The tiles seem fairly old and I can't see anything that matches locally. Size is 250 x 330mm and colour as per image attached. Tje hole isn't quite as full tile size. Just hoping someone knows of...
Hi, I've put down quite a bit of tile over the years but always worked with backerboard. I'm renovating a house in Florida (first one in Florida) that was built in 1996. It's concrete slab foundation and the tile was laid directly on the slab with what appears to be basic thinset.
When I was...
DIYer tiling my whole house. Done smaller projects but in this I am concerned about the current use of tile and carpet and the transitions from room to room. Can I “build up” the carpeted areas once the carpet is out so that I do not have to rip up the old tile? I have attached a couple of pics.
Afternoon all. I'm just starting a cloakroom toilet project and i need some advice regarding old tiles.
Having just ripped some old skirting off, i discovered that it had been bonded to some very old looking tiles that transition 90° bewteen the floor and the wall. Unfortunately some of them...
Ive just joined this and am asking all tilers for their help. I have just had a radiator replaced with a heated bath towel rail and its unfortunately left broken tiles behind it that need replacing. Ive measured the current tiles and they are at 19.5 x 14.5cm - which i understand is a...
I have removed tiles from ply and obviously old adhesive is left behind on the ply. How much prep does this surface need before re tiling? Will the new tiles adhere properly if old adhesive is left behind?
We have just pulled up our old kitchen porcelain floor tiles as we are going to be laying new slate ones in a few weeks. The porcelain ones were laid by us about 4 years ago. They were very easy to pull up, but once up we noticed that the adhesive was so crumbly like a powder in a lot of places...
I'm helping a friend decorate her new place on a very tight time limit as she's been moved at short notice by the housing authority.
The flooring in most of her new place is old florr tiling with a sticky black adhesive residue on it, we are thinking that the old tenant had some...
Hi, I have just started my first bathroom refit - DIY on my own house! I had a bit of a nightmare getting the old tiles off though and want to know how to proceed.
Basically there were two sets of tiles straight onto plasterboard. Looks like the original tiling went around the bath at waist...
We've started lifting the ceramic kitchen floor tiles ready to start laying the new ones (ceramic also). The problem we've got is getting the old adhesive up. Picture attached :hurray:
The adhesive has a cement quality to it as it is hard. We've tried cold chiselling it, grinding it, hitting...
Hi, I have an internal concrete block wall that was tiled when originally built. A couple of the tiles 'lifted', off the wall, and when i took them off, the tiles next to them also came off!!!
The original tile adhesive remains on the concrete block, and is tough to knock off, even with a...

I use them to set out our range for demos and as give-aways.
If you are thinking of dumping a load of boards on the skip call me and I...
