Bathroom Tilers Adelaide
Bathroom tiling is more complicated than large areas of floor. It requires a talented and patient operator like the experts at FAWCETT. First of all the base preparation is very important. The screeding must be done so that water will fall slightly in the direction of the drains. This is a skill in its own right. Secondly, the surfaces must be properly waterproofed. In my experience one of the biggest problems has been with improper waterproofing of the wet areas. This can cause moisture to get in behind the tiles and affect the supporting structure. The third skill in bathroom tiling is working with a lot of cuts and corners. If a tiler is presented with large floor tiles near a drain, they must cut them to get the fall right. They must cut and mitre edges, especially around nib walls or soap and shampoo niches. The degree of difficulty in a bathroom tiling job is much higher than that of a large flat floor.

What services does a Tiling Contractor Perform?
A tiler must possess the skills to mix grout to a good consistency, use initiative to place cuts in the most aesthetic places, and have the foresight to envisage where the joins will finish at the end of a wall. They must be good at preparing a good base to lay tiles on, with enough fall for water drainage, but not too much that it is visible. They must be adept at waterproofing, this is one of the most underrated jobs they must do, as waterproofing is what will ensure the integrity of the structure behind the visible work. They must be able to cut and lay tiles evenly and smoothly. Some such as porcelain are very unforgiving because of their highly reflective surface, so getting these perfectly even is an important skill. Then comes the grouting.
