tiling in cleethorpes

**1. Prepared the Surface:**
   - We ensured that the surface we were tiling was clean, dry, and smooth. We removed any debris, dust, or old adhesive, and if it was a wall, we used a stud finder to locate studs and marked them. In wet areas like bathrooms or kitchens, we applied a waterproofing membrane.

**2. Measured and Planned:**
   - We measured the area to be tiled and calculated the number of tiles needed, including extras for cuts and breakages. Then, we planned the layout, starting from the center and working outward, using tile spacers to ensure even spacing between tiles.

**3. Applied Adhesive:**
   - We mixed tile adhesive according to the manufacturer's instructions and spread a layer onto the surface using a notched trowel, working in small sections. We pressed each tile firmly into the adhesive, using spacers to maintain even spacing.

**4. Cut Tiles if Necessary:**
   - If needed, we used a tile cutter or wet saw to cut tiles to fit around obstacles or edges, measuring twice and cutting once.

**5. Allowed Adhesive to Cure:**
   - We let the adhesive dry and cure for the time specified by the manufacturer before moving on to grouting.

**6. Grouted:**
   - We mixed grout according to the manufacturer's instructions, ensuring a smooth consistency. Using a rubber grout float, we spread the grout diagonally across the tiles, pressing it into the joints. We removed excess grout from the tile surface by holding the float at a 45-degree angle and sweeping diagonally across the tiles. After a few minutes, we wiped away any remaining haze with a damp sponge.

**7. Completed Final Touches:**
   - Once the grout had cured, we polished the tiles with a dry cloth to remove any remaining haze. Then, we applied grout sealer to protect the grout from stains and moisture, following the manufacturer's instructions.
