Tiling

Splashbacks, floors, walls,

More often than not, when reforming an older Spanish property (or sometimes not

so old!) is that the tiles have been hung using butting method. The benefit is to the

builder, as it is less time consuming and cheaper on materials.

The problem with this method is that with our climate here in Andalucia, where we

have high temperatures, high humidity and seasonal variations of these, surfaces

expand and contract accordingly. This causes the tiles to lift away from the

concrete base they were put on.

This impacts on: hygiene, aesthetics and of course property value.

Other than marble tiles we use a series of spacers to compensate for this.

This takes a little extra time but the long term advantages are that the tiles stay in

place.
