Overview

If you have never fixed a tile in your life, this book will provide you with all the information you need to get started, and if you already have some tiling experience it will offer you a much deeper understanding of the process and enable you to tackle advanced projects. It covers all the basic processes from designing and planning the job through to final grouting and cleaning down, explaining the importance of procedures such as setting-out. It explains the pitfalls, and advice is given on how to avoid getting into difficult situations. It also covers tiling with terracotta, marble, slate and granite, which demand slightly different techniques. Fully illustrated with step-by-step photographs and diagrams, and with useful tips throughout, this is the essential handbook for the tiler.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tiling is one job you want to do right the first time. Debut author and professional tiler Ripley tackles common tiling problems in this very smart book for beginners that contains a lot more detail than other tiling books, as well as insightful tips and preparation guides. Photos demonstrate how different lighting conditions show tile-laying flaws. This is not a tiling idea or design book, but it could go hand in hand with one. For a British import, it holds up pretty well; metric measurements are not translated, but it doesn't matter, as much of the instruction is on techniques. Recommended.
