Tile tools at a glance
In principle, tilers use the following tools for tiling in order to be able to work properly:

To properly lay tiles, repair tiles or lay mosaics, it is important that the tile adhesive is applied evenly to the substrate. With the notched trowel, the adhesive is combed through vigorously on the laying surface and distributed so that an evenly thick application is achieved. The larger the format of the tiles is chosen and the stronger the tile profile the back, the higher the tooth depth of the notched trowel should be obsessed. The appropriate toothing of the tile tools is often indicated on the packaging of the mortar.

- Joint crosses:
Although tiles slip away too quickly after knocking on a modern tile mortar, it is nevertheless advisable, especially on smooth surfaces such as old tiles, metal or Plastic, to work with so-called joint crosses. With the help of cross spacers, it is also ensured that all joints are the same width as their predecessors when repairing tiles.
