A reader's General Construction question: Loose ceramic tiles?
Vicky J. from Manchester, UK had this Loose ceramic tiles question.My dad has just has his bathroom plastered and has painted the walls. He has started tiling and noticed that a few tiles if touched just fall off the wall. why is that and what can we do about it
Hi Vicky, Tile adhesive takes an hour or so to firm up, and say overnight to get strong enough for the tiles to hold really firm. If they are easily dislodged the day after then you have got something wrong.
