Re: I'm so confused. Help me out here

Re: Old tile glue removal

Re: 3.5 car home shop with racedeck

I just did my 2-car garage with racedeck. No problems yet with chemicals or welding, I've done both. Doesn't mean the tiles won't get damaged, just that I haven't seen any damage occur yet. For...

Re: Looking for a HUGE mural

What about a mural made from tiles? There's that can print whatever you want on ceramic tiles, and when you install them it creates a huge mural. My company actually does this: www.ElementTile.com.
