What are tiles?

  • Tiles typically consist of burned clay, stone, glass or composite materials. The tiles are glued on waterproof surfaces and the fractures are sealed.

What’s the benefit?

  • Easy to clean.
  • Large selection with untrue possibilities.
  • Many reasonable alternatives.

What’s the disadvantage?

  • Can be smooth to go on.
  • All tiles have a certain water absorption, and the joints are never completely dense, so there are great demands on membranes.
  • As the membrane is hidden behind the tiles, it is difficult to detect a possible leak.
  • Expensive: Replacing the tiles is costly and comprehensive.

What does it cost?

  • Price differences are high, but quality differences are less important since it is always required that the substrate is completely dense. From $ 50 / sqm upwards.
