A Wall and Floor Tiler applies a variety of ceramic tiles to walls and floor surfaces. Wall and Floor Tilers could fix tiles in a number of locations such as kitchens, bathrooms, shops, hotels, restaurants, car showrooms, churches, swimming pools, spa areas. Tilers need to be skilled at setting out, preparing the surface to be tiled, and cutting tiles to a certain size or shape with hand-cutters or bench-mounted tools. Once tiles have been fixed to a surface, they require grouting and polishing to complete the work.
This competition has been designed to reflect the role of a wall and floor tiler and the standards that are expected within the construction industry.
