Shower tiling carried out to new or existing shower enclosures needs the correct adhesive and grout creating a waterproof shower.

Tanking can also be carried out prior to tiling, 'waterproofing' your shower.

The tiles that you use, can cover most wall tiles available from ceramic, porcelain and mosaics to the more elaborate natural stone such as travertine, marble and slate.

Natural stone can also be used in showers.

Some enclosures will require level access and have glass shower panels as an alternative to tiling on fixed walls. Don't be put off by moving away from traditional tiling styles, as bathrooms now vary greatly in design and practicality.

The floors will suit many types of tiles used and underfloor heating and shower tiling go well together.

If you would like me to work out the quantities, adhesive and grout for your project then please contact me for a free quotation to supply and fix, just fix the materials you purchase or supply only for diy projects. Any plumbing work can be incorporated with the shower tiling.

One of the main differences between shower tiling compared to other types of tiling, is that there is a greater degree of waterproofing needed to ensure that there is no ingress of water through the tile joints and into the walls behind.

There are  ways to combat this and theses would be

  • Water resistant and flexible grout
  • OR Epoxy grout
  • Water resistant and flexible adhesive
  • Tanking the walls and joints
  • Correct fitting of shower tray
  • Quality silicone only

These are measures to 'keep the water in' and see many years of use with your shower, without maintenance of any kind.

Other than that, tiles, stone in any format are good to use.

One thing to remember is that if stone is used, the correct sealant is applied to the stone before it is fitted, as the areas that are obscured by shower frames and silicone joints are still susceptible to water ingress and should be protected at all times.

All enclosures must be fitted in accordance with the manufacturers instructions which are included within the packaging, if it's not you must obtain and work to for your guarantees to be valid.

The walls can be of virtually of any material as water should not reach that far. The procedures for fitting substrates will be covered elsewhere on this site and again must be fitted paying attention to all joints and abutments.

A note from Mike
The kitchen design was 'stunning' and I was fortunate enough to be called in to 'complement' the kitchen with my tiling.
I was made welcome by the customers and I would highly recommend Ikea Kitchens without hesitation.

Mike

Mike and his team (Luke, Terry and Mike) have just completed a major 4 week total overhaul of our garden.
Great design and implementation under very difficult circumstances.
So refreshing to find people that turn up when they say they will and exceed expectations in their delivery of the project.
Thoroughly recommended, just make sure you have some extra coffee in the house. :-)

Thanks Mike. Fab job.

Mike is polite, professional and does what he says. Mike and his colleague worked really hard and built an amazing patio for us in Indian sandstone. It really transformed our garden. Highly recommend.

Thank you Mike, it makes such a huge difference to our lives. So happy.

When Mike first arrived for the quote he was very professional and punctual to the time given. He measured up and gave the quote as promised the next day. The work was undertaken and completed on time to a very high standard. Mike and Luke were conscientious and very professional and cleaned up at the end of the working day.

In conclusion I would recommend Newport landscaping,they provided excellent quality of work, professional and have already recommended them to family members.

Called around a good few places for my garden revamp. Some didn’t bother quoting, others just didn’t seem trustworthy. Mike, Luke and Mike all did the job really well in the timeframe they promised. Fit and finish seem excellent, they also took care to clear up afterwards. Recommended!
