    Default Tiling on brickwork

    I am getting an en-suite bathroom built in a new extension to my brick veneer home. One wall of the new bathroom is a single brick ( with piers) wall of my existing garage. Part of the wall is to be tiled, as it is one side of the shower recess.

    Space is very limited in the shower.

    Can anyone help with suggestions for tiling that will keep the wall as thin as possible (to maximise space in the shower. Can I stick Villaboard directly to the bricks, or do I need batons? etc

    Cheers

    Mark

    Should be able to stick villaboard to bricks, construction adhesive will hold it.

    Hi Mark,

    Don't want to rain on your parade, but whilst adhesive can be the go for untiled villaboard, James Hardie will not warrant it if tiled, unless batons are used. How far up the wall will the tile extend?

    Here is a link to their full Villaboard installation manual. Just scroll down to the bottom and you can download the entire manual to your computer.

    common building practice for your situation is to cement render the brickwork which will be 5-7mm thick (so you get a flat, plumb and smooth substrate to tile to) then roll on ya waterproofing and glue yer tiles to that

    Thanks Bob and others,

    I did a search of the forum, and found that there is a 16mm thick furring channel from Boral, to attach the Villaboard to.

    Tiles going up about 2m, Bob.

    I will check out the upvc, but it'a a bit late for this job

    Cheers

    That sounds like a good way to go. Does anyone know if the render can be tiled immediately, or does it need to be left for a period of time ?

    Cheers

    render usually should be left for a period of 7 days, that is taking into consideration weather and thickness of render.

    then you have to allow at least 2 days for waterproofing before tiling can take place
