What's your tiling question? Please can I have some advice I recently payed for a new bathroom and I bought light grey ceramic tiles. Unfortunately the colour of group is uneven and it makes the tiles look old. The tiler did not come back but the manager came back and tried to redo it and it looks worse. I have payed for the bathroom what should I do?

I don't know. What would you advise me do?
If a bucket adhesive was used and the adhesive wasn’t dry , the moisture could leech out through the joints creating a patchy effect. If not , then it could be over washed creating lighter patching. Etc.

The tiling was done in a morning. They were in a rush. How would you rectify this?

No grout needs to be removed or sealed with fuga fresca.
Have you aired your concerns with your installer.?
They initially said it is still drying then tried to redo it but it is no better and brown marks now in grout. I have just asked for it to be retiled await response. I payed a lot of money.
