Beware who you employ to do YOUR bathroom!

Anyone can show you a few nice pictures of a bathroom, but finding an experienced bathroom fitter who knows what he’s doing and takes pride in his work isn’t easy.

This bathroom is a year old and the tiles are falling off the wall.

Why you ask?

Firstly because the “bathroom fitter” hasn’t prepared his sub surface properly. Hes tiled straight onto a painted wall in some places?  And the adhesive hasn’t stuck to the wall. Firstly the grout started to crack and then the tiles started falling off the wall.

And secondly, he “dotted and dabbed” the tile adhesive to the back of his tiles rather than using a notched trowel to apply the tile adhesive to the wall, and then the tiles to that. This latter method, the notched trowel, creates a suction effect on the back of tile and tile sticks to the wall properly. Once that adhesive sets, that tile isn’t going anywhere!

Warning signs:

If you see your bathroom fitter putting blobs of adhesive to the back of the tiles and then sticking them to the wall. Kick him out of your house. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. His work won’t last and in a years time you’ll be calling us round to retile your bathroom.
