What is the best glue for floor tiles?

The best glue for floor tiles is often said to be standard rapid set cement, because it will give you increased durability for your tiled flooring. That said, the best glue to use will also depend on the type of tiles you’re laying.

If you’re using small glazed ceramic tiles then a ready-made tiling adhesive will often do the job. However, if you have larger glazed ceramic tiles (bigger than 30cm x 30cm) or porcelain tiles then you should opt for a standard rapid set cement.

For other natural stone tiles, we’d recommend that you use a rapid set multi-flex adhesive for the best adhesive results.

What is the best glue for tiles on wood?

When tiling on to wood and timber materials, the best glue to use is a rapid set multi-flex adhesive.

What is the best glue for vinyl floor tiles?

When it comes to vinyl floor tiles, acrylic-based adhesives are usually the best glue choice, as they’re particularly effective and provide a strong fix for the tiles.

What is the best glue for peel and stick tiles?

The great thing about peel and stick tiles is that you shouldn’t need extra glue because they already have a layer of adhesive ready for installation. However, if you have issues with peel and stick tiles sticking then try using a ready-made tiling adhesive – one that is specifically designed for tiles on a clean and dry floor.

And one important note to remember… always read the label of your adhesive and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.

For best results, we always recommend hiring a professional.
