Robust and versatile, buckets are a must-have tiling tool for mixing and transporting mortar. Rubber buckets are especially good as they’re easier to clean than hard, plastic ones.
An electric mortar mixer and paddle is best suited for mixing cement tile adhesives, levellers and grouts quickly and easily, trying to mix by hand is very hard and time consuming and the products usually end up lumpy
If you want a professional finish, a tile trowel is incredibly important, there are various notches on the trowel ranging from 4mm right up to 20mm, the general rule is the larger the tile you are fixing the larger the notch towel you will use, you’ll get proper coverage every time.
Grout fills the spaces between the tiles, securing them together. Grout floats are made of a durable, yet flexible rubber pad connected to a C-shape handle.
These essential items enhance the installation process by ensuring tiles are set at an equal distance from each other for a precise and professional-looking grout width.
