I now work part-time as the Frome Handyman, which limits me to small jobs and projects, and/or patient customers!

aka The Frome Handyman.
I fix ceramic tiles to walls and floors in kitchens and bathrooms.
tiles are an expensive wall and floor covering and without patience, an
eye for detail, good planning and precision application the effect of
tiles can be ruined. Tiling is one job around the house not worth
risking doing yourself. Mistakes stand out a mile and draw the eye,
proving costly to remedy.
you are preparing a room, kitchen, bathrooom, W.C. wet room etc. for
tiling, please ensure the walls and floor are solid, square and flat.
Uneven surfaces will cause both wall tiles and floor tiles - especially
the larger tiles - to kick out, and irregular wall junctions to be
highlighted. Unstable surfaces will cause tiles to lift off and crack,
especially on floors. It is not the job of the tiler to deal with the
background and don't accept tradesman saying “Oh the tiler will get
round that”. If the walls are being plastered instruct the plasterer to
leave the top coat unpolished so as not to reduce the effectiveness of
the tile adhesive. The quality of the tiling can only be as good as the
quality of the background.
Photographing tiling work is difficult but please find below pictures of some of my more creative tiling work.
