    Grateful for any advice. I'm tiling a wall behind a wood burning stove with brick slips.

    What adhesive and mortar should I use?

    The wall is 2.3m tall x 3.1m wide.

    The guy that's selling me the brick slips has given me a quote for the other materials that comes to £182.50

    Adhesive £7.50 per tube x 7
    Adhesive gun - £35.00
    Mortar £25.00 per bag x 3
    Pointing bag - £10.00
    Bag of 10mm spacers - £10.00

    seems a bit steep?

    I used Mapei tile adhesive for brick slips behind a woodburning stove 3 years ago and no problems since. Pointed up with a mix of 9 parts building sand to 1 of lime and one of cement.

    Look at BAl CTF3 or Ardex X7GPlus flexable tile adhesive is what I use for brick slips, ARDEX X 7 probably also suitable.

    And same mortar mix as Ramseyman for pointing.:)

    Think you would be safer with a flexible one which is what I used- more expensive - Mapei do one or cost out those KIAB has mentioned.
