Com­mon prob­lems with tiling projects

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - TRADES & SERVICES -

›› Not buy­ing enough tiles: Gen­er­ally you need 10 per cent on top of mea­sure­ments, but some­times cuts can be tricky and tilers will go through more tiles than ex­pected. ›› Look at de­signs, sizes and dif­fer­ent styles of tiles (for ex­am­ple, a bath­room tile is dif­fer­ent from that used in liv­ing ar­eas). ›› Grout­ing is im­por­tant, as it is the fin­ish­ing touch (in be­tween the tiles). Choose the colour care­fully. ›› Fin­ish­ing will also in­clude wa­ter­proof­ing and seal­ing.
