If you can obtain tile to match from 40-50 years ago, you’re so lucky that you should spend a buck on a lotto ticket! :eek:

Okay, that product is not a cement-based product. It’s not very highly thought of by pros due to its lower performance and fairly heavy shrinkage that results in grout joints that recede and leave...

Hi, Dan.

To get L/364, you used 10.0” for the height of the joists. If that’s what you’ve actually got, you’re good to go. But if your 2x10 joists are actually 9.25” like most of them are, that...

I’d use the V-notch you described, rather than the 1/4” square notched trowel to minimize the oozing-through-the-joints problem you speak of.

Yes, good news! Clean off that build-up to restore your tiles.
