i wounder if u could help me,
i had builders in and they done my bathroom
i had a slight problem when my tiles started to crack in half on the wall. When i asked them wat they used they said wbp ply does it shrink or would putting pvc on wbp ply make it shrink at all.. hope u can help
Let me guess, your builders sheeted the wall in ply and then use PVA glue to "seal" it?
If they did then there's basically a thin layer of glue that will barley be holding the tiles to the wall as PVA forms a skin. It doesn't penetrate the ply to form a proper bond. That coupled with the fact that it will go "live" as again when the wet tile adhesive hit it means it will have a sketchy hold at best.
