Tiling is the fixing of ceramic, porcelain or natural stone tiles to walls and floors, there are many different sizes of tile but the process of fitting them all is very much the same method.
Where are tiles fitted?
Tiles are fitted usually in all domestic and commercial buildings from bathrooms, kitchens, cloakrooms, and any floor. Tiled surfaces are great as it produces excellent finishes aesthetically plus also hygienic and easy maintenance. Tiles are often used in swimming pools to add a little water proofing properties but mainly for their look as a beautiful deep blue glazed tile will make the water also look the same colour.
Apprentices in tiling
Some young tilers learn the trade at 16 or 17 years old over a 2 or 3 year apprentice and would also attend a college once a week to learn the theory and background preparation involved with tiling, this is a long slow drawn out process.
