    How long do granite tiles last?

    Tilers

    Hi there, I’m thinking of having new tiles fitted to my bathroom. I’m just wondering, on average, how long do granite tiles usually last? Thanks for your time.

    "Hi Cheryl,
    Granite is extremely hard and will outlast your building. The issue of stone tiles in bathrooms is much more about the structure behind them and the adhesive used.
    Current UK building codes recommend that foam backer boards such as Delta or Wadi boards are used not plasterboard. Please see the process page on our website for further information and pictures
    Kind regards Carl Bristol and West Tiling"

    "Hi Cheryl. Granite tiles are the same as any other tile, in that they do not actually wear out. After a period of time say ten years they may need regrouting. But you will get fed up with them long before they wear out Regards David"
