    I've had a couple of customers asking me to replace old tiling that has either cracked or fallen off. Both are onto a timber surface. One is onto a floor (not sure if it's boards or chipboard), the other is on top of a box to cover pipes.
    Whats the best preperation, and adhesive to use for each of these??

    Provided the timber can be made secure and sound [I exclude chipboard as I never seen it secured permanently] ordinary tiles cements work fine without any special preparation.
  4. That'll be ordinary tile adhesive with all the relevant additives making it suitable for tiling on timber.

    Also, tiling fails for a reason, that reason it usually either the wrong ahdesive used or the substrate not prepared correctly.

    Fix the cause not the result.
