    Minimum tile adhesive depth for over tiling

    I posted previously about a tiling job that has gone a bit wrong. One wall either needs to come off or ideally be tiled over. The problem with tiling over is a concern that the quadrant shower cubicle may not fit. The shower cubicle has 20mm of adjustment, but 5mm already used, so 15mm left...

    Tiling over exterior tiles

    I never tile over tiles. However, in this case I have a small area that is a shop front and I'm told there is a void behind.

    Grout haze over walls and floor.

    Hi I've just finished grouting my porcelain tiles with a grey grout. I gave them a good sponge over but now they're drying there's grey haze over the tile. Do I just wait for the grout to dry then go over with sponge and water again or do I need some kind of acid based product? Thanks
