    4 hours for 15 sq meters??? you on your second pint or summit?

    read it again....i think youve read it as a floor not walls.....and if youve read it as walls i wouldnt like to see your work unless you have 15 monkeys working for you all triping over each other then i would like to see, would make a good comedy

    Bet they look good when you've done it that fast !!!

    What are you .....a *octupus??
    You need at least 2 days to fit, plus half a day to grout & finish off.

    i didnt read about window so 6 hrs. This would be with a labourer to mix wash buckets etc. If the walls are out 8hrs but flat walls would take 6hrs to lay and 2 to grout. They are big tiles and go on fast and flat. Stop drinkinking tea and get yer finger out. I do a full bathroom in 2 1/2 days + grouting walls and floors which is norm about 30=35 m so 15m is a doddle

    2 days to fit? so 16hrs that would be 1 tile every 14 min thats slow for a cut around the corner of the window never mind a full tile. get yer finger out

    Why does this forum attract cowboy cretins who think they are faster and better than everybody else.
    More Appropriate name Bodge it and scarper the only fast thing about these is an old clapped out Transit van which disappears fast in a cloud of smoke never to return.
    I get a lot work ripping out their shoddy work, fast my ****.

    600mm x 385mm Tiles are big, they aren't going to be any quicker to install than standard size tiles, in fact, quite often these big tiles take a lot longer to fit.

    Off the top of my head, I would have to say 3 days maximum to tile, grout and clean up tiles.

    That would be an Estimate for a Professional to do the work though.

    I agree completly with bath style, larger tiles equal more time.

    i only think that large tiles take longer if there is alot of cuts but other than that i think that they go as quick if not quicker in my experiences. guess it all depends how it works out and if the floor/walls are good. i know if the wall is bad then large format is a nightmare

    I know a tiler who would do that in a day easily and grout it the next day in a couple of hours. Whats more I wouldn't be able to find fault with it. Price ? bloody expensive!. I have seen bathroooms that have been tiled by so called pro's in a a day and to be honest if I was the customer I wouldn't pay them. The difference between individuals can be vast. Unless you have seen chip's work you can't comment let alone **** him off.
