Ceramic Tile Setting

Ceramic Tile Setting Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Given the high prices that contractors charge for ceramic tile jobs, many homeowners would undoubtedly consider installing it themselves, if they had the proper guidance. Also in the last ten to fifteen years, tile used in new homes is often glued to nothing more than plasterboard. The life expectancy of this type of installation is generally less than two or three years, which means that homeowners must pay to have the tile torn out and redone-an expensive proposition. Now, John P. Bridge comes to the rescue, providing do-it-yourselfers with all of the information they need to complete ceramic tile projects with long lasting, professional results. Bridge begins with a brief discussion of the tools of the trade, materials required, and various types of masonry tile. Readers will then find easy-to-follow instructions for installing floors, tub surrounds, walls, and counter tops. Bridge takes readers step-by-step through the entire process, from surface preparation, layout, and design to setting the tile, grouting, and finishing

Synopsis:

Follow the practical how-to guidance in this book. . .and save the money you would pay a high-priced contractor to install your ceramic tile. This book contains all of the hands-on information your need to complete home ceramic tile projects yourself, with long-lasting, professional results.
