Why is Tile Adhesive and Tile Grout so Important?
There are all different types of Tiling Adhesive and Grouts. Some are ready-mixed, others in powder form. While easier to start using, the ready-mixed types are not as strong generally as the powder form.
You don't want to create the perfect job and find that your adhesive while being nice and easy to apply, is not up to the job of holding the weight or dealing with traffic.
In general, ready mixed tiling adhesive is suitable for smaller areas using ceramic tiles. However, larger tiles and porcelain tiles should always be fixed to the wall by a powdered solution. All floors should use a powdered mix.
There are many different categories of tiling adhesives too. Some are quick-drying, some are more flexible, some reduced slip.
Anything Else I need to Know About?
It's critical that before you start tiling, you know that your base is suitable for tiling in both strength and the makeup of the wall or floor. Some need to be primed with Epoxy, for example. Some floors may need a self leveller.
