A wall is a structure and a surface that defines an area; carries a load; provides security, shelter, or soundproofing; or, is decorative. There are many kinds of walls, including:

Walls in buildings that form a fundamental part of the superstructure or separate interior rooms, sometimes for fire safety
Glass walls (a wall in which the primary structure is made of glass; does not include openings within walls that have glass coverings: these are windows)
Border barriers between countries
Brick walls
Defensive walls in fortifications
Permanent, solid fences
Retaining walls, which hold back dirt, stone, water, or noise sound
Stone walls
Walls that protect from oceans (seawalls) or rivers (levees)

    Gap between trim and wall

    Hi, I have an issue here. My tiler has left a gap between the trim and the wall. No doubt the wall wasn’t true. I have put some pics of this, but it’s hard to show well. The gap can be up to 6mm in places. Two questions: 1 is this common practice? I would have thought that walls were...

    Slightly unlevel wall, best way to get around it?!?

    Hi, so I’m relatively new to tiling. I’ve got a job where the walls aren’t 100% flat but not the worst. I’ve sealed the old plaster with a primer. Am I ok to dot and dab the tiles, I don’t mean 5 dots with 20% coverage, the dots I’d put on would get a minimum coverage of around a 70% adhesive...

    Do my wall tiles have water ingress? (Photos)

    I have started to notice a wet pattern look on my Porcelanosa Marmol Carrara Blanco bathroom wall tiles.
