I have a Rubi manual tile cutter which is quite new. It has been fine initially but now each tile I cut fragments at the top. I cut from the bottom up but three tiles in a row have cracked the corner off at the top. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? These are all standard straight cuts. Nothing...
I recently lifted some modern tiles to reveal the original Victorian Tiles (Actually dated late 30's but in the Victorian/Edwardian mosaic style). The previous owner had for some bizarre reason tiled over them. Sacrilege!
With considerable effort, I've managed to clean off almost all of...
Had my bathroom floor done a year or so ago and noticed for a while now that one of the tiles next to the door was moving when walked on. I've taken it up and wondering how to fix it now - can I just take out the rest of the old adhesive and then re-lay?
