The London Tile Co.

Can be installed using a range of methods including adhesive, wet bed and pedestals. It goes without saying that all paving materials will have pros and cons, but with porcelain fast becoming the material of choice for patios we wanted to see how it compares to another popular material: natural stone.

One shelve is equal to more than two 4 gallon 35 pound pails of adhesive. I just wanted to talk a little about LokDots.

How To Create Indoor-Outdoor Flow

The London Tile Co.

Valverdi tiles are easy to lay; the 10mm indoor tiles can be laid traditionally using tile adhesive, while the 20mm outdoor tiles can be used on a screed or with pedestals. The trend for indoor-outdoor living areas is one that is might seem relatively new, but we think everyone should be embracing it. Having a large indoor space that’s only used occasionally is impractical, and yet a smaller space which connects to a corresponding outdoor area gives you the option to extend when needed.

Save on Large Valverdi-Indoor Out Installations

The London Tile Co.

Indoors Valverdi tiles can be installed on both walls and floors, using the traditional adhesive method. When installing 20mm tiles outdoors there are a number of fixing methods to choose from, including adhesive, chippings, and adjustable pedestals. Good news for anyone planning a large installation of Valverdi Indoor-Out tiles – we are now offering discounts on large quantity orders.
