    Your professional thoughts please.

    Hello, we have just had some tiling done. The tiles look ok in the daylight, but when you turn the lights on they don’t look very straight/ flush. When you run your hands over them you can tell where some of the tiles aren’t quite flush. The wall is new and was freshly plastered before tiling...

    Choosing your tile well, will guide your cost

    A huge factor when buying tiles are the cost of them. But not just them, the adhesive and grout too. But not even just those three things, the products needed to prepare your background (substrate) to tile to is often the part that is missed out when it comes to costings. We've made a whole new...

    How to work out your reaction ratio

    So the new tags that automatically get dished out by the forum work on a ratio of your posts versus the likes those posts have received. So here's my profile: As you can see I have 23,000 posts and just under 5,000 'reaction score' (basically, likes). So my score isn't even 1:1. Or even 2:1...
