Tiling shwer enclosure


Postby Billscottage » Thu Jul 04, 2013 9:54 pm

Hello, I need to know what distance (gap) I should leave between the coners for grouting....where they meet ..(the 90 degree corners).....would it be the normal 4 or 5mm that's between each tile on wall....or should it be less/more....and are there any precautions that need to be taken into account...for grouting the corners....aside from the normal need to get grout all the way into corner?.....
Thanks....Bill

Simply Build It

normally its 3mm, buy some tile spacers it will be easier, you just have to force the grout in, when the grout is set you could either buy a small plastic corner quadrant bead or silicone it for extra precaution
