Now, thanks to new materials and techniques, it's easier for anyone to get professional-looking results every time! Master tilesetter Michael Byrne's fully updated book explains everything anyone needs to know about tiling in an easy-to-read format. With the help of real-life installations, he demonstrates floor, wall, countertop and bathroom techniques.
Byrne covers the many types of tile -- including natural stone. He explains tools, setting materials, preparation and layout. You'll also find detailed information on troubleshooting problems and making repairs. The traditional mortar-bed method is still covered, but easy-to-use backerboard and waterproofing membranes now get special attention. Byrne delivers all the basics tilesetters rely on...plus all the fresh ideas and innovative methods they need to do the job right.
