Tiled on the bits that they mist
Clumsy thumbs Chippie.
It's like BAS is back
Ok, your right I’m wrong.
OP just crack on then.
British Standards state a lot of things mate, but unfortunately we don't live in an ideal factory set world, there's a lot of grey areas you have to navigate and determine what will or won't work through pure experience, not from what a book tells you. Do you ever tile on plywood, use PVA or tile on top of tiles?
Im sure you mean well.
Not on Ply, nor do I use PVA.
You can stand a 50 mm thick concrete slab on its end and it won't fall over.
No adhesive, no grout, nothing but air on all sides.
Drop a penny on it and it will still stay upright.
What are you talking about?!
Ban All Sheds, still around on other forums apparently, made HA look quite reasonable.
You picked a fight ...
A negative effect means that the tiles fall off!
No, don’t think I did.
I was offering the OP advice based on their question and my 18 years experience tiling.
I wasn’t counting on being trolled by a few stubborn members who think they know better.
I have asked what your tiling experience is but have had no response.
I tile on average 16sqm a day and have done for 18 years.
I remove existing tiles from painted surfaces and mist coats weekly and in most cases the tiles will come off in sheets when broken into.
If your happy giving advice to inexperienced people which could result in injury or worse then go ahead.
Unfortunately I have worked for many builders with these kinds of attitudes and that’s why we are all tarred with the same brush.
I think I will leave this forum to the likes of you and get on with my life producing quality work to a recommended standard guilt free.
Do you have nights on the tiles?
