 Post subject: Prowarm Backer-Pro Board
PostPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2018 3:37 pm 

Our kitchen has the original tiles (fitted in the 1950's)

The walls are tiled half way up and the tiles protrude from the wall by 23mm !

I have chiseled the tiles off a small area and also chiseled the cement tile base to just below the wall level.
(the amount of rubble was amazing)

I am now left with a rough cement wall and was thinking of using 6mm Prowarm Backer-Pro boards to ...

 Post subject: Bathroom wall panel moving
PostPosted: Sun Mar 18, 2018 11:18 am 

We've one of those plastic wall panels, like a commercial bathroom and the sealant has gone. Really not sure the best way to approach this as the panel is now lifting:

Any ideas? I assume the panel needs to be reglued, but how? or just seal holding the panel in place?

PostPosted: Thu Mar 15, 2018 1:23 pm 
I'm about to tile my bathroom floor with 600x600mm porcelain tiles. The floor is made of standard t+g softwood floorboards, over 9inch joists at 400mm spacing.

Question: do I rip up the floorboards and replace with 22mm wbp ply or leave the existing 20mm floorboards as is? My preference would be to replace with ply as I think it would give a flatter and more rigid surface to work with. Problem is that 22mm ply ...

PostPosted: Thu Mar 08, 2018 1:25 am 
My walls are not 100% straight and the centre is about 8mm further in from the top and bottom. I need to put the shower door there.
Any advice on what to do?
Is it ok to pack adhesive thick enough to make it straight all the way?

Also, where is the cheapest place in Manchester to buy large tiles?

 Post subject: Floor tiling over Chipboard.
PostPosted: Mon Mar 05, 2018 3:48 pm 

Im about to tile the kitchen floor of a house ive recently moved into. After removing the vinyl tiles which has left a sticky residue the underlying floor is chipboard.
I know tiling straight onto chipboard is not advised. so I wondered what was best to cover the chipboard in as it is also not that level and has a bit of water damage in a couple of spots.

Any advice would be greatly ...

 Post subject: Advice on marble floor tiles
PostPosted: Sat Mar 03, 2018 5:40 pm 
We have just had marble tiles laid in our new extension, purchased from a well-known retailer. We used a tiler recommended by the shop, who appears to have done a good job, although there were problems with some of the tiles being different sizes and thicknesses. The tiles were laid on a concrete screed with electric under-floor heating underneath it. Very soon after the tiles were laid I noticed that several of them have cracked, ...

 Post subject: Removing Bathroom Tile Trim and replace with Chrome
PostPosted: Thu Mar 01, 2018 1:00 am 

we are moving into a new build soon and the builder wants 125 to finish the tiles with chrome trim. From what i can see the trim is fitted under the tile and therefore I assume it would be too much pain to remove it (across 4 bathrooms...) with a view to then installing all chrome.

Any advice appreciated :)

 Post subject: Tiled access hatch / door
PostPosted: Mon Feb 26, 2018 1:42 pm 
Hi All,

I am installing a laundry chute with a tiled access hatch / door in the bathroom. It will be fully tiled and around 300 x 300mm, it also needs to be 30min fire resistant. Does anybody know the best places to buy them? I have found Jakdor but they are very expensive. Or does anyone have bright ideas about making one?

I will also need one to access under the bath but this ...

 Post subject: Can't get grout off tiles
PostPosted: Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:54 pm 

I recently grouted some floor tiles in the utility room, putting the grout (Mapei) in, removing most of the excess and finally cleaning off with a cloth about an hour later. The tiles came up perfectly.

Then purchased another batch of the same tiles, did the same and cannot remove the grout on the surface, have tried a sponge, a cloth, a green scourer, a nail brush and the grout seems fused into the ...
