I have had 30m2 of 600x600 flooring tiles laid after which the grout started lifting. I thought it was simply needing regrouted and the original tiler was too busy to attend so I got another tiler whom said the tiles were boss and needing lifting. I then obtained a second opinion and another tiler said the same and he lifted the tile that was sounded hollow and all the adhesive was stuck to the tile and not to the concrete floor. Please note this is a newly laid floor with underfloor heating and a concrete screed. Can someone tell me what would cause the tiles to be bose and why is all the adhesive sticking to the tile and not the floor? The reason why I am asking is that the original tiler now disagrees with the new tiler.
