What we do...

Prepare areas and then install all sorts of tile-form surfaces: Tiny mosaics through to large stone slabs - in ceramic, stone, or glass and of course the large format porcelain-ceramic tiles.  Please take a look at the project pages; hopefully you will see the scope of the work done by us, the many situations and the quality of project our expertise and dedication has led to work on.

Primarily we carry out tile installation, but in areas where tiles are the finish Colin Barber also does...

BUILD

Works of prepartion and formation in areas for the tile work are also part of what we do. 

Customers and designers sometimes find tilers only tile. We happily take on  - and have great experience in - the build part as well.

 

It often necessary to carry out those works in order that the correct type background is in place, both for acheiving high quality tile-work, and ensuring the longevity of the work.

 

Floors especially need correct specification of build-up and materials for the best outcome.

BATHROOMS

Frame-work and boarding, floor overboarding and subsequent tile-specific layers.  

Full bathroom fit-outs including plumbing works.

Wet room and steam room formation  and water-proofing

 

Co-ordination with other trades if build work is part of the main contractor remit to provide best advice for our work to follow.

 

We regularly work for interior design teams where communication and details are key to the works.

REPAIRS & REMEDIAL WORK

 

We are asked to suggest remedies for old work that is in poor repair, or when done incorrectly. With care and thought sections of troubled tiles can be removed, the area stabilised and made ready for new tiles, to brought back into use. 

 

Years of work with every tile type enable us to resolve problems with tiled areas - this is most important in 'wet areas' to ensure water ingression does not cause greater problems to the building.
