- What are tile spacers?
Tile spacers are small cross shaped pieces of plastic that are placed between tiles to maintain a constant and consistent spacing between the tiles. The spacer creates a gap that is filled by a grout to give a symmetrical finish to the surface. Once the spacers have done their job of ensuring an equal gap between each tile, they can be easily removed once the grout is set.
- What tools can I use for cleaning up excess grout?
Once finished applying your wall or floor grout, it’s likely that there will be excessive grout that hasn’t been pressed in between the tiles. It is essential to quickly remove this excessive grout so that it doesn’t set and stain your new tiling. As such, we stock the Forte Hydro-Sponge, the Forte Washboy Sponge and Handles, to make the post grouting clean up much easier. Or why not go for the Forte Washboy Bucket to make light work of cleaning large tiled areas.
- What size of trowel do I need?
Trowels should be used alongside an appropriate size of tile. For example, mosaic tiles would require a 3mm square notch trowel, whilst larger tiles would expectedly require a larger trowel. Smaller trowels produce thinner trips of adhesive, which essentially means that there is less chance of the adhesive getting onto the tile surface when they are pushed into place. If you are unsure what size of trowel will be best for your installation, reach out to a member of staff and they assist in every way they can.
- How can I cut small sections of my tiles?
When carrying out your tile installation, it’s likely that you’ll have to make tiles cuts that have sharp, clean edges. For straight cuts on full tiles, this is fairly easy to accomplish with a tile cutter or saw. However, sometimes the section or corner that needs cut is too small or narrow for a tile cutter. This is where a tile snipper comes in; it is a specifically designed hand tool that allows the user to cut off small pieces of tile in a controlled fashion. It is thus an ideal tool for either curved or straight cuts. Tile nippers can cause sharp pieces of tile to fly, so ensure you wear eye protection when using it.
- What is a dry diamond drill?
A dry diamond drill bit used vacuum brazed diamond technology, which allows the dry bit to be used at a higher temperature in order to efficiently cut through porcelain, granite, ceramics, stone, glass and slate.
