Can I find studs behind a tiled wall?

No two tile walls are alike. We do not recommend the use of basic StudSensor models with only Stud Scan or DeepScan® modes to locate studs behind tiled walls.

MultiScanner® models with Metal Scan mode may help to identify the pattern of nails or screws attaching the lath or sheetrock to the wall beneath the tile.

Note: Bathrooms and kitchen walls consist of many pipes, as well as duct work. The stud finder may detect these objects if they are within scanning range. Please properly map out studs before drilling or nailing.
