Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A comprehensive guide to ceramic and stone tiling that offers novices all they need to begin and the more experienced new skills and a deeper understanding.

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.
