Tiling uneven surfaces

It is important, both for appearance and for safety, that the finished tile surface is flat with no tiles standing higher than the others. Providing ‘normal’ tiling practices are followed, this is straightforward on flat, level substrates. If the substrate is however not flat, then a number of problems can arise.

Common issues and queries you can face

Difficulty in achieving flat surface

Time required to fill holes

Combination of problems

Inconsistent thickness
