The showroom:

As a self-builder you will not be taking product selection lightly. To understand the quality, texture and decorative effects of good quality wall & floor tiles it is essential to see them in the flesh. A visit to our showroom will help you to fully appreciate the product and visualise the tiles on large panels and in room settings. You can also feel the effects of operational under floor heating and see tiles used to great effect on our external terrace overlooking the carp lake. We are open six days per week & there is ample free parking on site. Friendly and experienced staff are always on hand to guide you through the process.

Products:

There is a vast array of floor & wall tiles on the market & it can be a daunting prospect to specify the right products for the job. You are welcome to take advantage of our experience & technical knowledge. Brief us on your project & we can suggest a wide range of suitable tiles for you to choose from. If you wish to discuss budget we will ensure that you get the best possible quality to meet your requirements. We have long standing contacts with manufacturers in the UK & Europe & it is not unusual for us to work with these producers to identify a tile that will fit the bill for a particular client, and ship the consignment into the UK specifically for their project.

New manufacturing techniques mean that natural stone and timber effects are almost indistinguishable from the natural products. The result is a beautiful yet durable floor that needs virtually no maintenance to maintain it’s appearance from the day it is laid. Smooth and textured surfaces allow internal floor tiling to extend seamlessly into a patio area for continuity whilst offering the security of an anti-slip surface in wet conditions. For added luxury, porcelain floor tiles also work wonderfully well with Thermonet electric under floor heating which avoids the potential of awkwardly placed radiators that could compromise your interior design.

There is no substitute for experience, our sales & management team can boast over 75 years of combined time served in the tiling industry that should be of enormous help. For example, we can tell you what types of tiles are suitable in any given conditions and what surfaces they should be fixed to. We can advise on durability, anti-slip capabilities and frost resistance. We can tell you about new building products such as anhydrite screed and what should be considered when you want to fix tiles to it.  We will advise on the correct type of adhesive to use and how you should prepare the subfloor. We can tell you where to incorporate expansion joints and what type of grout you should use. The list of questions is potentially endless but do not hesitate to ask us, and if you do catch us out, we will do our utmost to research an answer!

 

Fitting service………….

If you want the complete package, we can relieve the uncertainty in employing an unknown tradesman to fit your beautiful tiles by taking on that responsibility ourselves. We have a vast experience in fitting floor & wall tiling in a wide range of applications. We will survey the potential project and provide a supply & fit estimate to complete the work to a high standard with the correct materials. This can help with cash flow because new domestic dwellings are currently VAT zero rated for “supply & fix” contracts. Please take time to look through our gallery where you will see images of a number of projects that we have completed to date.

In conclusion………..

Finally, thank you for staying with us to here! We would genuinely appreciate the opportunity to provide any of the services above. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your project in depth if you are interested in anything we have had to say.
