Adhesive Type: Select an appropriate adhesive that works well with both the brick effect tiles and the wall’s material. Choose an adhesive that has excellent bonding strength and is specifically designed for the type of tiles you’ll use such as our slip-fix adhesive.

Wall Preparation: Preparing the hollow wall is a must. Ensure that the wall is clean, dry, and free from any debris or dust. Proper wall preparation will help the adhesive firmly bond to the wall, providing a stable base for your tiles.if it is painted or not, we advise using our pro primer to ensure the brick effect tiles adhere to the wall fully.

Pointing: How you point the brick effect tiles depends on your desired aesthetics and tile type. To achieve a traditional brick wall appearance, consider leaving a  gap of 10mm between the brick effect tiles before applying mortar.

Professional Advice: If you’re uncertain whether the wall is ideal for tile installation, seek professional advice. A qualified contractor or tiling expert can examine the wall and provide advice on the best approach that suits your situation.
