There are three main things to take into consideration when choosing adhesive for your DIY tiling project:
These are all important questions to know the answers to when speaking to your Beaumont Tiles consultant or when buying your adhesives.
When we are called out to see a problem job, it is almost inevitably a laying problem, and the most common is due to the use of the wrong adhesive.
Some clients bring this upon themselves in a way, because they insist on the cheapest quote and then complain when a tiler uses the cheapest adhesive. Our advice is to use the best adhesive you can. It is only a small cost in the entire job, but it could make or break it. The staff at Beaumont Tiles are happy to advise on adhesive, regardless of whether we supplied the tiles.
There are many brands of adhesives available and each brand produces several different adhesives some of which are designed for specific types of tiles or specific surfaces. Check our catalogue or your local Beaumont Tiles store for the best adhesive for your specific project.
We guarantee the performance of the tiling systems we recommend and supply. In fact, when tiles bought at Beaumont Tiles are laid with ABA or BT Branded adhesives, the whole system is covered by our exclusive 15 Year System Guarantee. The simple guide is to select the best tiles and the best adhesives you can for the job.
When it comes to choosing grout, always opt for a flexible mould resistant grout. This is available in a wide range of colours to match, contrast, or complement any tile and any area. This is definitely something you should think about if you've got a great kitchen splashback idea you want to showcase.
For special industrial areas, Beaumont Tiles can help with the right epoxy grout for the job.
