If you are planning a bit of DIY tiling (and why not ) please remember the tiling weight limits for the surface (wall substrate) you are tiling to !
We get a lot of calls to put right (which is more expensive than the job done properly ) DIY jobs that have failed as a result of ignoring this ! Tiling in this guide is for the combined weight of tiles, adhesive and grout !
