UC Tiles based in South Africa provides the service of laying tiles
as well as advice regarding the laying of tiles professionally in South
Africa. When laying tiles involves the installation with cement mortars,
the support surface must be wet with clean water. Laying tiles in this
manner ensures to avoid the possibility that the surface itself extrcts
part of the water from he mortar necesarry for setting and hardening.
The support surface used in the process of laying tiles must be chemically compatible with the binder which is to be applied. It is necessary to treat the surface with a primer when cemen-based binders or adhesives are to be used in the process of laying tiles.
