AbstractThe incidence of ceramic-tile failure on bathroom walls appears to have increased in recent years, especially in new houses in which the tile wall is part of the exterior wall of the house. This note presents the findings of a preliminary investigation carried out by DBR, suggests some causes of the problem and proposes remedial measures.
