If you’re constructing a new house or renovating an existing one, tiling will be on the checklist for your kitchen, bathroom, and possibly other areas of the home. Before deciding on your final tile design, style, and colour, you’ll need to think about tiling supplies and cleaning products. Waterproofing Direct has an extensive selection of waterproof tiling supplies and products in Sydney. Depending on the area you’ll be tiling, there may be a diverse range of supplies you’ll need for your project – but thankfully you’ll be able to find everything from adhesives and grout to trowels with us.
The foundation of a successful tiling project depends on choosing a quality adhesive or binding product that will secure your tiles. We stock reputable brands for industrial and commercial use. Waterproofing Direct also offers cross spacers, which will assist you in creating the desired pattern. Spacers are useful to maintain accurate sizing and a consistent gap between tiles and throughout the tiled area.
If you plan on tiling a bathroom, basement, or laundry room area exposed to water or moisture, you’ll need to waterproof it. This will require a waterproof membrane, which is a sealant that prevents mould build-up. Always remember to identify water-outlet areas in and around where you plan on tiling and ensure that your width and height dimensions are precise and accurate to avoid a messy reapplication. A tile nipper or nibbler is recommended for renovation projects as there may be tiles you’ll need to remove, and it’s an inexpensive tool that can be used more than once.
Grout is another necessary product you’ll need to purchase, as it will pull together your entire tiled area and can’t be substituted with anything else. It’s a filler that strengthens your tiles and should be used with a grout float for easy application. Other tools you should consider picking up are splash trowels that can spread products with minimal effort. Trowels are available in notched or pointed form, which can impact how you spread them.
Finally, when your tiling job is complete, you’ll need to clean up. We can make this stress-free with our variety of cleaners, that are non-corrosive, safe to use, and available in multi-sized cartons.
