Many tiling books adopt a hypothetical stance, presenting easy choices involving perfectly flat walls and tiles that are always simple to cut. This book demonstrates how a do-it-yourself enthusiast can carry out a tiling job to a high standard in situations that exist in the real world. The author, whose 50-year career has encompassed every aspect of the tiling trade, has considerable experience of what can go wrong. Here, he passes on his extensive knowledge, showing the reader how to avoid problems and how to overcome them when they do arise. Thoroughly and accessibly, the book covers all the basic processes, from design to the final grouting and cleaning; trouble-shooting; and tiling with ceramic, terracotta, marble, slate, and granite.
