Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few building materials can match tile for durability, beauty, design — and increasingly, popularity. This book combines an inspiring diversity of design ideas with well-illustrated, pro-level installation and repair techniques. Tiling begins with a full range of design inspiration and options, with chapters on the characteristics, pros, and cons of different types of tile. Included here is a varied selection of completed installations, both indoor and outdoor. Next come the details on tools and materials required for different projects. This part of the book contains trade secrets, tool-buying tips, common techniques, and safety procedures-all designed to help readers get the most professional results possible. The remainder is taken up with specific projects based on the authors' extensive installation and repair experience. Using a highly visual approach, this section enables them to follow a project from start to finish through concisely captioned step-by-step photos.

Synopsis:

Times change and so has the world of tiling since the original publication of the bestselling Working with Tile in 2005. Advances in technology and research have brought new installation products and tools to the market, including waterproofing membranes, backerboards, grouts, and cutting tools. Design elements have also seen a dramatic shift with the emergence of glass and stone launching a new era of creativity. DIYers will welcome this completely revised and updated edition, which combines easy-to-follow installation techniques and the latest design ideas. Two all-new sections focus on grouting (which can make or break any job) and working with porcelain and glass tile (a daily challenge to tile and shower door installers and plumbers). Remodelers looking to master small-scale tile projects such as adding a backsplash or retiling a powder-room floor will refer often to the expert advice and over 370 updated photos.

Synopsis:

Relatively affordable as DIY projects go, tiling is also one of the most popular among homeowners. New tile can cover a multitude of sins and transform a space — from tiny entry to spacious kitchen — in a matter of hours, if it’s done properly. This book presents all of the information needed to take on a tiling project from start to finish, including planning and layout, installation, and upkeep — from tiling a kitchen counter or outdoor patio, to installing glass block in a shower, on a curve. From the FOR PROS BY PROS series, this book delivers pro-rated instruction guaranteed to get the job done right the first time.
