Levels are very important when undertaking any tiling project. They are very useful for spotting irregularities in the surface, such as hills in the cement or low spots. The demolition of the existing flooring often leads to damage of the under floor due to the abrasive tools being used. Placing a level on the laid tiles will help you keep the surface flat across the entire floor or wall. It is also very handy for lining up straight tiles, which is especially useful when setting tiles with patterns. They come in many sizes; you'll need one 6 inch to 12 inch level and one 3 foot to 4 foot level on hand for home tile work. It's good practise to choose aluminium levels, as they are light weight and easy to clean plus they are less prone to damage compared to wood levels. is a website witch gives all information about Installation and Accessories.

Buckets are a must for any tile project. They can be used to collect debris from the demolition job, mix the cement and grout, hold water for finishing the grout work and can even be used to transport your tools. Plastic buckets are cheap, light and most importantly, easy to clean. Large 5 gallon buckets should be used for mixing large batches of cement, while the smaller half-gallon buckets are great for carrying small amounts of material when carrying out repair jobs.Sponges are important for all aspects of the tile work but remember to purchase several of them, as they have a short life span when undertaking this type of work. The large hydro sponges are the best type to use when working with tile. To reduce the chances of dirt or scratches on the tiled surface, use a new sponge for each task.

A scrubber is a handy foam sponge with textured side that lets you clean off dried materials that would otherwise be difficult to remove. A saddle saw is a narrow saw with a medium toothed blade that's useful for removing the bottoms of doorway trim, to allow for easier setting of tiles around the door saddles. After setting tiles in place, secure them to the cement by lightly applying pressure on top of the tile with a rubber coated mallet. You can also even out the surface of smaller tiles, such as mosaics by tapping them with the mallet. The last tool in your arsenal should be a suction cup. This tool has a pump-actuated suction handle that allows you to lift embedded tiles without causing any damage to the tile. This is particularly useful when working with heavy tiles, such as marble or limestone. is a website witch gives all information about Installation and Accessories.
