Affixing a tile is more important than mere looks, which is why it is critical to turn to reputable companies when installing these floor types.

When fixing tiles to walls or floors, it is critical to use high-quality fixing solutions from a reputable supplier to ensure the longevity of the tiling installation.

Failure to do so will result in long-term problems and costly repairs up to three times the cost of the initial job. These include chipping up; the possibility of fixing the concrete damaged by chipping up or by settling and movement post-construction; and the purchase of new tiles, adhesive and grout, to name a few.

“A lot of people only consider the face of the tile, but the most important aspect is affixing that tile properly,” Marius Botha, TAL’s Regional Sales Manager, notes.

TAL has established a reputation for high-quality tiling installation materials, tools and building solutions. They have also tested their products which adhere to all the necessary quality and manufacturing standards.

TAL also benchmark its products against international standards. “We use the latest technology that is available globally, and attend major trade shows and exhibitions on a yearly basis to keep up to date with the latest trends and developments,” adds Marius.

TAL’s product lines include: underlayment screeds; waterproofing; tiling adhesives; grout and additives; and also tiling tools. “We provide a full package for DIY and construction industry customers,” Marius concludes.
