More about Wall and Floor Tiling

Tiles can be made of ceramics, mosaic, and natural stone. Likewise the environment in which they are used is equally diverse: walls, floors, and staircases in houses, offices, gardens, factories, public buildings, and places of worship.

That means that they may be expected to work both inside and out, accurately following designs, preparing surfaces, and laying tiles to the correct pattern and grouting to a high standard.

Tilers sometimes specialize in certain areas of artistic work, for example the complex designs seen in swimming pools.
