Overview

Lots of homeowner's are intrigued with the many possibilities tile provides for improving the aesthetic beauty of their homes.

Brought to you by two tiling experts -- each with over 20 years as working professionals -- this all-encompassing manual delivers everything you need to handle any tiling job from start to finish.

The authors even point out several types of tiling projects -- with potentially costly repercussions -- that are best left for the professionals.
