Alternatives to buying Expensive Spacers for use with Brick slips Tiles
We are often asked are purpose made spacers required when jointing around brick slips, well the answer to this is quite simple not really they are can work out to be very expensive when costed against a normal small tile spacer. Most professional who use brick slips for wall cladding on a regular basis will use Plasterboard which can be either cut or nibbled off with a pair of pliers quite easily and will give you a 10mm or 12 mm joint depending on what thickness of board you may have available. A great benefit of this method is that when you later want to remove the plasterboard spacers prior to using the jointing mortar it will not matter if it breaks off and stays in place as you can scrape it out with a small screw driver quite easily . Another method is cut your own from 10mm plyboard this is a very cheap way of creating your own Tiling spacers.
