wall tile replacement help!
We're in the beginning stage of remodeling the master bath in our 1920's English Tudor home, and we've decided to replace damaged wall tile rather than gut the bathroom. The old tiles have a lot of character and I found a company that can make the replacements that we need.
The issue is that the old tiles were set directly into the concrete wall behind them. Also, the tiles have almost no space between them. In some instances, the concrete is cracked, in other instances the concrete backing needs to be filled because we removed towel racks and soap dishes, etc. (see photos in photobucket)
What would you suggest that I use to repair the cement wall and mount the replacement tiles? Thinset? Mortar repair in a caulking tube? There is not a lot of room in some areas since the replacement tiles are the same thickness as the old tiles.
All comments and suggestions are welcome!
