Re: Can I tile over a glass splashback?

@gippslandhome  Your advice is awesome, without folk like yourself and this site, we the layperson would have to find the money to pay so called professionals.  Get ripped of walk on and treated like we are total idiots all of which I as a woman have been treated like while trying to get small jobs completed.

 

When I first moved into the home I live in now, I tried to get my floors tiled.  I had 4 tilers come and give me quotes, but all pulled out after they had been offered bigger jobs.  Crushed me and I couldn't get a tiler for at least 4 months, if I'd have been physically able I would have had a go at tiling myself.  But I was as they say stuck between a rock and a hard place.  So I went with the 1st company I could and got plank vinyl laid, which I am happy with.

 

BUT and sadly but it is.  In a town such as I live DUBBO NSW. trades people have a lot of big jobs offered because of development and they can afford to be picky and choosy with what work they do along with what prices they charge.  That is why a great many of us try to save money or get jobs done faster, hence doing it them selves such as myself.  Not always the way I wish it was but I have a go.  I am probably more than likely my own worst critic when it comes to work I do or have done.  I have learned in my years of having a go that I really enjoy having a go a making the changes to my home that I have and will continue to do thanks to the advice from some of the great folks on here.

Cheers

Hi Rob

Thank you so much because I'm quite nervous about this I'm not a home renovator but I have to change this so do you know any tilers who are experienced in doing this kind of tiling?  If so could you kindly send me their contact details please?

Regards Michelle
