If you have never fixed a tile in your life, this book will provide you with all the information you need to get started, and if you already have some tiling experience it will offer you a much deeper understanding of the process and enable you to tackle advanced projects. It covers all the basic processes from designing and planning the job through to final grouting and cleaning down, explaining the importance of procedures such as setting-out. It explains the pitfalls, and advice is given on how to avoid getting into difficult situations. It also covers tiling with terracotta, marble, slate and granite, which demand slightly different techniques. Fully illustrated with step-by-step photographs and diagrams, and with useful tips throughout, this is the essential handbook for the tiler.
