For that perfect finish, a lot of surface preparation is needed before installing tiles. It is important that we have an even level surface before considering installing tiles. This is where we distinguish between the amateurs and professional tilers like us. Here are some key steps we adopt to give you that professional finish.
We make sure we survey the area for hidden pipes to avoid damaging them while tiling. We note these places and treat them differently from other areas as part of our surface preparation.
Cleaning the surface
To get that excellent finish, we take out old wallpaper, paint or even tiles from the surface. Then wash the walls with an ammonia-based cleaner. In some cases, we use a filler to close any holes and create a smooth even surface.
Working out the number of tiles needed
We use a combination of experience and good measurement skills to figure out the number of tiles needed for a wall. The area of the surface to be tiled divided by size of the tiles. We also factor in breakage. That is why we are experts in wall tiling in Leicester.
Choosing the right tiles
Floor tiles and Wall tiles although similar are quite different. It is essential to get the right tiles suitable for your walls. For example, ceramic or porcelain tiles are good for bathrooms, glass tiles are good for focus walls, Slate is good for walls and floors etc. This is when to enlist the help of the expert wall tilers in Leicester.
Using the right adhesive
Grout is used for filling in gaps between the wall tiles. Mortar is used to bond bricks together as part of the building work while thinset allows the cement to become hydrated.
