Adhesive staining

Asked by Richard Gardham from East Yorkshire: Hi we recently had our bathroom fitted with limestone tiles by a fitter. Initially the tiles were a different shade and we assumed they were drying out. Now it appears what we are seeing is the adhesive marks showing through. It has been over 2 months now so not wet. Any tips or shall I get them to srip off and renew. regards Richard

gpslancaster says: The Tiler should have used a White coloured adhesive, not a Grey one as light coloured stones like Limestone are Translucent and will show through a Grey Adhesive, Thier is no cure for this, apart from ripping them up and re-tiling. Russell Taylor Tile Doctor Lancaster
