Tiling over gap between wall and ceiling

Tiling over gap between wall and ceiling

Best practice is a internal metal angle to join your wall with the cieling and tile on top. My only concern would be movement of house. I would imagine it will crack the grout.

Some take up to a week to fully cure. Although I would say a couple of days should be safe but depends on the product, check the packaging. Alvin www.evokearchitects.com
