Tile work is required in wet rooms such as bathrooms. It is also important to perform tiling when installing underfloor heating. The tiled surface protects the walls and floors from moisture damage and dirt.
It is important to prepare the surface before starting the tiling:
- Cleaning and finishing the substrate – adhesion of the substrate to the tile mixture is the most important. This requires roughening the surface and ensuring the quality of the surface – it should not have cracks, and for best results, walls and floors should be as straight as possible. Cleaning the substrate from dust could be a first step.
- Treatment with moisture barrier– once the substrate has achieved the desired quality, it should be covered with moisture barrier. This is a liquid that prevents the formation of moisture under the tiles and keeps the mixture better on the wall.
- Covering with mix mortar – before tiling, the surface must be covered with a mix mortar. The mixture is applied in a uniform layer using a special shovel.
When laying tiles on walls and floors, the most important thing is to lay the second row, which is also the starting point.
A control board is placed on the first row and the latter will be tiled last.
It is important to keep track of the levelling of the tiles when laying the tiles.
Uniform gaps in tiling are achieved with the use of plastic crosses or joint cords.
The end-plates can be cut with a special tool that works in the same way as a glass knife.
Once the plates are in place, drying takes about 24 hours.
After that, the spaces between the boards must be jointed.
Jointing makes the surface waterproof and gives a beautiful finish.

Construction of gypsum walls and ceilings
The most important stage in plaster work is the construction of the frame. When constructing partitions, a metal belt is mounted both on the floor and on the ceiling, which is fastened with a special nail gun. The metal belt itself must stay within a millimetre of accuracy, as the accuracy of the rest of the wall depends on it.
The next step is to determine the distance between the frame posts. It usually ranges from 40 to 60 cm, as needed and the posts could be about 15 mm shorter than the height required. The reason is that if the walls were to subside naturally over time, the partitions would not be damaged as a result. Intermediate posts are secured to the belt with special pliers to facilitate later attachment. Before installing the gypsum, a distance should be calculated so that the gypsum joints are not aligned, otherwise the wall will not be rigid enough. Cutting plaster could create an artificial joint in the plaster joints, which will later facilitate the painter’s work. A gap of about 5 mm should be considered between the floor and the ceiling, which will later be filled with special gypsum acrylic.
Gypsum boards are fitted with a special cypress foot, which simplifies the holding of the tile, levelling, and is the most convenient way to hold the required space.
Gypsum boards are fastened with special plaster screws and at regular intervals along the long frame.
Gypsum screw heads should be kept deep enough so that they will not interfere with the painter’s work.
For partitions, a wool is provided between the two gypsum, which is designed both for noise protection and for keeping warm.
In the case of gypsum ceilings, the ceiling height is determined as needed.
The side panels of the load-bearing frame are set by the laser that gives an accurate and level vertical.
The distance between the main carriers (max. 1200 mm) and the auxiliary carriers (max. 400 mm) must then be calculated, based on which brackets should be installed in the ceiling, fastened with concrete screws. The beams are fixed to the brackets by means of special brackets.
The construction of the frame must also consider the fixing of the necessary openings (lamps, shutters) so that the elements can be properly attached to the frame.
The plaster is installed with a slight displacement so that a cross joint is formed.
