    I've recently had a bathroom tiled and noticed the edging strip used sticks out over the edge of the tiles by 2 or 3 mm. it's particular notiavble in the external corners where the litres profuse quick a bit.

    is the normal or has my tiler used the wrong depth edging strip?

    Profuse litres? Of what? Beer, water, shampoo?

    Oh! and give your spell checker a kick up the backside at the same time.;);)
    Trims do often protrude it depends on the look of the job whether it is acceptable.

    Perhaps you meant "where the mitres protrude quite a bit"

    2-3mm is too much I'd say. Ideally should be flush. Trims typically come in 2mm increments (6mm, 8mm, 10mm depth) and with a suitable amount of adhesive, should be able to get it flush more or less.

    Sounds like he used 10mm trims with 8mm tiles?
