Watch our easy-to-follow videos showing how to tile walls and floors.
To ensure your tiles last, you’ll need to choose the right adhesive to attach them to your walls or floors.
Pre-mixed adhesives are perfect for tiling walls while stronger mix-at-home adhesives are the right choice if you’re tiling floors too.
All adhesives are considered to be water resistant. However, for exterior use and wet rooms, it’s best to use an adhesive specially designed for the job such as Wickes Waterproof Wall Tile Adhesive.
