Tidy tiles:
Bonding Tiles onto Tiles

Beautiful tiles are a good solution in many areas of the house – whether in the bathroom, kitchen or living rooms.
You can only find the matching PROBAU quality products for your tiling project in your BAUHAUS centre.

This is how it works:

A bit past its prime: Cold tiles up to waist height and above this wallpaper. This must be removed and the upper wall area coated with PROBAU Cement Mortar to the level of the tiles.

Once cleaned, the old tiles can be sanded for better adhesion. Here they are being sanded using a machine.

A secure bonding bridge between the old tiles and the new plaster is created with fabric-reinforced plaster (tile adhesive + fabric).
Plaster over the transition. Instead of sanding, you can improve adhesion with a wafer-thin layer of tile adhesive.

The upper tile border is marked onto the wall. A new border is to be provided here.

Apply the ready-for-use PROBAU Flexible Emulsion Adhesive evenly with the trowel, and comb through with a notched trowel. 

Now lay the tiles into the adhesive bed and press in. Leave spaces for decorative tiles. Tile spacers are useful (see image 10).

Check each row for dimensional accuracy with the tile adjusting plate.
If half the wall is tiled up to the top and a row under the border is marked out and fixed with a pencil, the border along the entire width of the wall can be fixed.
Here too, we recommend working with tile spacers to ensure even joints.

Realigning the horizontal is possible as long as the "working time" still permits corrections.

The crowning glory: The decorative tiles are placed in the spaces allocated for them.


Good to know: Tiles onto tiles requires secure adhesion and thorough subsurface preparation: Old tiles must be cleaned and degreased. Any detergent residue is removed most effectively with vinegar, or commercially available acidic cleaners.
