Put in your own tile?!

Now there is no reason why you can't do it... and enjoy it!

Home improvement guru Matt Nikitas returns! In the third installment of the Grand Finishes series, he'll help guide the beginner, as well as the expert, through the world of tile setting--with clarify and humor!

First he takes you through the necessary preparations and answers the questiosn: Do I need to install an underlayment? Or can I tile right over this surface now? You'll know how to ensure a lasting tile job by understanding how professionals plan out their jobs and follow through to the grouting and caulking of the expansion joints.

With his trademark style--relaxed demeanor, patience, and thorough execution--Matt takes away the mystique that surrounds tiling, sharing the history of the art along with his own on-the-job experiences.
