Overview

Times change and so has the world of tiling since the original publication of the bestselling Working with Tile in 2005. Advances in technology and research have brought new installation products and tools to the market, including waterproofing membranes, backerboards, grouts, and cutting tools. Design elements have also seen a dramatic shift with the emergence of glass and stone launching a new era of creativity. DIYers will welcome this completely revised and updated edition, which combines easy-to-follow installation techniques and the latest design ideas. Two all-new sections focus on grouting (which can make or break any job) and working with porcelain and glass tile (a daily challenge to tile and shower door installers and plumbers). Remodelers looking to master small-scale tile projects such as adding a backsplash or retiling a powder-room floor will refer often to the expert advice and over 370 updated photos.
