  • Mrs L Campbell’s Awesome Tiling Review
    What a fantastic job David Howe has done of fitting 40 square metres of 300 by 600 ml mirrored quartz tiles in my home in Darlington – covering a hall, under stair cupboard, toilet, kitchen and summer room. As it was such a large area to cover I didn’t imagine the finish could look nearly as amazing as it does, […]

  • Tom Marley Tiling Review for David Howe Tiling
    David Howe was recommended to me by a “flooring specialist” who had previously worked in my home. David came to and gave me estimates for tiling my Porch and Conservatory. He suggested types of Ceramic tiles, where to purchase them, where I would likely to get a discount. We agreed his fee and arranged dates on which to do the […]

  • I'm sorry to be asking more questions, but I'm quite worried about my current tiler's work. After further inspecting his progress I note that the wall tiles are installed hard down onto the shower tray most of the way around the tray. Shouldn't there be at least a 2 mm gap between the tray and the tiles, both for expansion and to insert a primary silicone seal into the gap before finishing with a final cosmetic seal over the top? That's the way I've done it myself in the past, but I'm not a professional and the tiler currently working […]
  • Hi all, Looking for some advice as I’m really concerned about the quality of work in our bathroom . We were starting to worry as there are some uneven cuts and large gaps between the tiles/messy grout but were assured it would be tidied up. He has started to mastic the edges and I have raised concerns that it is very tick but it’s just looking worse and worse. The job isn’t finished yet – do I give him the chance to put it right or cut our losses here before it gets worse? He’s a nice guy and we’ve […]
  • Help please! Victorian red quarry tiled floor… Cleaned with bleach….. Its stained, is there anything I can do to restore the colour/get rid of the stains? Also to get the shine back again? I'm unsure if they were sealed previously, is this a good idea and any advice appreciated. Thank you!
  • Hi All, First time poster and tiler here. Hoping to get a bit of advice on tiling a wet room shower tray using hexagonal mosaic (30cm x 30cm sheets – individual tiles are probably 2.5cm x 2.5cm or so). The shower tray is level to the floor, I've used cement board on the walls and floor and tanked and taped the whole place. I've dry-layed and cut all the mosaic that I need and ready to go. The issue I am having is that I am using a nassboard tray (Wetroom Shower Tray Kit Aqua Tanking Kit – Nassboards – […]
  • Hi I’m trying to identify and locate this tile, it was sold by B&Q about 8 years ago. It was manufactured by Kalebodur in Turkey and it measures 50 x33 cm’s. Thank you for your assistance.
  • We now have a professional tiler in attempting to tile a wall up to an external corner where he has suggested incorporating a metal edging trim. Due to the overall layout of the tiles, the tile edges next to the trim need to be cut, which the tiler has attempted to do. He's also trying to butt the tile edges right up against the trim with no gaps in between, but this isn't working and it looks awful to me. I'm wondering whether it would be better to allow a 2mm gap then grout between the tile edges and the […]
  • Hi I anybody have any ideas how to smarten this up and make it look good. Any advice would be great.
  • Heya, Please could someone tell me the simplest way to tile over this. Prep work including best products (adhesive, primer, levelling compound) needed. Much appreciated
  • Hello, I was wondering if there is a time limit when tiling. I am DIYing my bathroom. So far I have tiled the floor but not grouted. I have also tanked the shower area and primed the plasterboard walls in the rest of the room with Mapai plaster primer. My question is how long can I wait now before continuing? My wife has booked a surprise 2 weeks away and I want to make sure I can leave the job where it is at currently with no adverse consequeences. Thaks in advance.

  • People, and certainly plasterers (who are murder for it) tend to think and use PVA glue as a primer when tiling walls. If you're tiling over plaster or plasterboard and wish to separate the tile adhesive (which may be cement-based) from the plaster (which causes issues; cement and plaster don't mix) then you can't use […]
