    3sqm of kitchen tiles - how much

    Dont think you will get a tiler price this up per m2 as they would with a floor or bathroom job. Most i know would price this as a day rate job. So whatever he needs to earn to cover his/hers costs for the day. (price would vary depending where you were in the UK too)

    Tiles or Shower Wall?

    As a tile only retailer im going to defend the tile option here @NewShoes ;) Best way to prevent leaks is makes sure the prep is right. Invest in a tanking kit to prevent damage to plasterboard, grouts have come on along way over the years, you can even seal the grouts with a grout protector...

    New grout problems

    Sounds like the grouts been mixed incorrectly causing efflorescence. Universeal Grout Rescue Colour & Seal (what you described as the pen) is a problem solver in this situation. (ps, never seen efflorescence with TM Grout 3000, best grout available IMHO)

    Great stuff. Yes you can order online, you can get samples if you want to just check? Fix NMP down onto your floor, then i would use TileMaster Ulimate S2 adhesive, its a belt n braces adhesive. TileMaster Grout 3000 Mid Grey will match the tile too. All in stock. Lee
