Great Work!!!

The photos above are the result of a completed tiling project carried out on a commercial building on Elizabeth Street, Brisbane, QLD.

LATICRETE 335 Premium Flexible Adhesive was supplied by Paul Smith from The Tile Merchant to the tiler, Brett Hohn from Bretts Creative Stone. The Kerlite Porcelain tile is 1000x1000x3mm and was cut into individual patterns. 

Brett has done a fantastic job, as the job was challenging due to the tile only being 3mm thick and had to be laid over timber flooring!
