Topic - Wall tiles
Question - Have a laundry sink with metal cupboard with 2 40x40 ceramic tiles on wall, taps are in situ, I want to keep the tiles but need to take out the sink as new bench top going in. I need to cut 3cm off base of  tiles to fit new bench, after bench is installed I will be putting tiles same as existing tiles over bench. My question is can I cut 3cm off tile while still on wall, it's a new home just moved in and need more bench space in laundry

MyTradie.com

Yes you can cut the tiles with a diamond blade in a small grinder, I suggest you use a tradesman to do it. Before you put the new tiles on the wall you will have to cut the new tiles also, that is if the new tiles are 40x40 also.

Topic - Fibro sheeting

Question - We are installing a new floor to an existing building with 30mm fibro sheets please could you advise on the fixing adhesive recommended and any other additional fixings required  also the procedure and if we need to stagger the joints

MyTradie.com

30mm sheets are very thick, why are you using 30mm thick fibro sheets? Before i can answer your question properly i need to know what floor surface or joists you are putting the fibro onto?

Topic - Cement sheeting

Question - Could you tell me the correct way to cover the joins in cement sheeting Thanks

MyTradie.com

If the 4.5mm cement sheeting is not already in place, then you need a plastic strip called Luminex, most hardware stores sell this product. If the sheeting is already in place and you cannot install the Luminex, then you can fill the gaps with paintable filling products like silicone, builders bog or no more gaps, which ever is easier for you to use

Topic - Floor Joist

Question - What are the sizes for the floor Joists if the bearer is 90x35;F17;span1500 @450

MyTradie.com

If the bearers are not spacing more than 1.5 apart parallel from each other, the joists need to be 90x45 F7 at least
