Tile failure

Hi, got a couple of gaps (2mm-12mm) in between WBP boards where I need to rebed tiles due to failure. What can I fill these gaps with, am rebedding the tiles on 1-part flexi - can I use this to fill the small gaps and maybe trim some timber fillets into the larger gaps, or can I use this for the 12mm gaps as well?

Or am I best off using something like this?

Thanks for any advice guys :D

Oh dear, some more info would be useful to understand why you had the failure; why you have such large gaps & exactly where they are, over a joist or unsupported? Adhesive can be used to fill out up to a point but if the edges of the board are unsupported, it will just fail again.

Don’t use wood filler.

Rich, I know exactly why the tiles have failed - it's because the ruddy tiler spot bedded the things and didn't do the floor prep properly - it's not my job, but having lifted the cracked ones I ain't getting the tiler back that's for sure. It's only a couple I can sort myself - no worries.

I'll fill with flexi-addy / timber fillets. Cheers.

screw the fillets down, not nail, also flexi grout ;) but if he has dot and dabbed all the tiles be prepared for it to start happening all over, he was`nt a tile fixer you employed mate ;)
