More About the Author

Howdy, I'm Tim Carter, a former full-time hands-on custom builder and remodeler. I'm also the founder of the syndicated newspaper column Ask the Builder and the award-winning website,

My passion is home building, remodeling and home repairs. I'm also very passionate about my wife, my kids and my friends. I'm a master carpenter, master plumber, master roof cutter and love installing ceramic tile, marble and granite. As crazy as this sounds, I also love to install wallpaper. I find that very therapeutic.

About seventeen years ago a close friend of mine, Fuzzy, passed away very suddenly. He was the president of the top poured concrete foundation company in Cincinnati, OH when I was building. Fuzzy knew more about poured concrete foundations probably than all the other foundation people in Cincinnati combined.

Moments after I got the phone call about Fuzzy's passing, I started crying. Not only was I sad that I'd not see him again, but I was mourning the loss of all of the knowledge in his head. He'd never taken the time to write down one thing. All of us in the building trades would have to re-invent the wheel. We'd have to grope around trying to figure out what he knew.

That day I vowed I would not let that happen to me. I wanted to pass on my building knowledge to my kids and to you so that you wouldn't have to guess. You wouldn't have to experiment.

I wanted you to Do it Right, Not Over.

That's become my motto, and I hope it becomes my legacy.

Please feel free to contact me via my website. Subscribe to my newsletter. I do fan meet ups all over the United States and announce the dates and locations in my Free Newsletter.

I'd love to know more about you and how I can help you succeed with all your home improvement projects.

For anyone looking for a practical, simple, clear and knowledgeable guide to applying grout to already installed ceramic floor tile, this book by Tim (the Builder) Carter is the premiere source. I've been subscribed to his "Ask the Builder" newsletter for several months now and, as a renovations and construction man myself, I've found his knowledge and practical wisdom to be of help time and time again.

This book, "How to Grout Ceramic Floor Tile" is easy to read, uses easy-to-follow instruction and is accompanied by perfect photos as well as links to vividly clear and relevant videos. And it's actually FUN to read. The fact that he has provided the book free of cost attests to the man's generosity and true desire to help those of us who need it most.

I recommend this book and Tim's online newsletter to anyone who wishes to do things right. As his newsletter signature declares, "Don't forget - Do it right, not over." Thanks Tim Carter for your knowledge, experience, wisdom and generosity.

To receive a "free" e-book, is perhaps worth the 5 stars rating but considering it's one of Tim Carter's "How To" books, makes it all the more worthy.
I've been a subscriber to Tim's email-newsletter for a little over a year now and with all the remodeling problems, I've been facing, being in the middle of remodeling a 75 year old farmhouse, Tim and his newsletter,(and valuable links always contained therein), it has certainly made the horrific remodeling chore 90% easier to deal with.
Exactly like every "project title", I've dealt with when using "Ask The Builder", and Tim's valuable tips, this new ceramic tile book does what all of Tim's advice columns and other publications do........."Cuts to the chase", making things very easy to understand and follow and doesn't confuse the "do-it-yourselfer" with a bunch of unneeded information and glitz.
Tim's slogan; "Do It Right,Not Over" certainly shows through in this new book.
If you're about to tackle any type of home project, and have not done such a project before or, you've had conflicts and problems in doing any home project, I highly recommend checking out Tim Carter's site.

26 reviews, only two less than 5 stars, I wanted to know the reasoning for the 1 star review, went right for that one first.
Seems the disappointment was with the eBook venue, not with the content.
Yes, cheeky to ask in the eBook for a 5 star review, but that could create backlash - many less than 5 star reviews - if readers thought it not deserving. I'm OK with interacting with the world as it actually is.
The 1 star review complained about a $4.00 price for it? - But that review is dated 10 March, when it was available for free. ??? That's why I was there too. And I think it ought to be free too, given the size, availability of the info via other routes, links to Mr. Carters sites. But, though I don't think a normal $4.00 price is Mr. Carters smartest move, I do think the information is easily quite worth it. I think an Apple-type price of $1.99 would be better, or indeed free could easily be in Mr. Carters best interests.

But - on the book itself - I find the content excellent. Yes it's brief, but to the point. I've been browsing a lot for tile info, and some time ago identified Mr. Carters tile info posts as among the best. I've been slowly preparing to get my wife set up for installing a lot of tile in the home we're building - floors, showers, window-sills. I tend to be a perfectionist in my building, my wife is a complete neophyte with tile (first time ever). Mr. Carters presentations are what I had settled on to point my wife at, good solid information with a presentation friendly to those who know nothing. I find them very good myself when I'm looking for details on normal good practice in areas I'm not expert at.

Why only 4 stars from me? Just to stand out from the crowd of 5 star reviews.

Such a nice bonus to be able to grab this piece for free this weekend. Thanks, Tim.

This is such a great resource to have all this know-how information in one place so you don't have to search the internet and try and piece things together. One of the best things about this ebook is that Tim tells you what will happen, or the consequences, if you do something incorrectly. Too many times instructional information just says "do it this way". There is nothing said about what the consequences are if you DON'T "do it this way." As a subscriber to Tim's newsletter, I have complete confidence in the information that he presents in this ebook. Yes, you can search the internet and find out grouting information, but do you really know how reliable the information is?

There have been some comments about Stain Solver mentioned in the book. To me, that is just good marketing for a great product. I have used Stain Solver for years and it is quite simply a GREAT PRODUCT.

Keep up the good work Tim. Looking forward to the next how-to ebook.

Even if you're a novice and have NEVER grouted any type tile floor,
you can learn to do so with this eBook and associated video links.

I've been laying/grouting assorted tile floors for 34+ years (and no
I don't do it as an income source) and I still read eBooks like this
from respected contractors/writers. Tim's got a large array of cross-
pollinated experience and he often includes tip or short-cuts that I
may not know.....or have forgotten. Hence, the positives outway the
negatives.........or I wouldn't waste my valuable time!!!!!

If you read this eBook and watch ALL the videos at least TWICE.....
before you ever open the grout mix bag/bucket, you can learn to do
a very good job.......and one that you can boast to your friends that
"I DID IT MYSELF"!!!! This is a satisfaction you won't understand....
until.......YOU DO IT YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!
