Using start-of-the art technology for cutting and finishing tiles made from all materials, they are proficient in all aspects of tiling, indoors and out. Using innovative solutions for difficult to tile areas, such as curves or sunken showers, we are able to provide a unique practical covering with durability and ease of cleaning in mind.

Natural Stone requires preparation prior to installation and care and attention once the fixed. When treated and fixed properly you will enjoy the beauty and natural stone for years to come.
We use only the highest quality impregnators and sealants to ensure the durability of the tiles and to maximise resistance to water, oil, grease and other stains. Left untreated, the porosity of most natural stone will absorb unsightly stains detracting from appearance and cleanliness.
Each type of tile material, due to its chemical makeup, needs a specialized adhesive and grout to ensure maximum stability, thereby avoiding future movement or cracks. Waterproof adhesive and grout is used in most bathroom circumstances on sealed or tanked floors and walls, eliminating water leakage or damp. Grout is treated against discoloration, stains and mould to ensure maximum longevity and hygiene.
We never cut corners on the quality of “hidden materials”
Since natural stone is a calciferous material it is easily damaged by acid based cleaning products. Where natural stone is used in wet areas as water softener is highly recommended to eliminate limescale build up and the need for harsh cleaning material.
Tanking and waterproofing:
Essential for all wet areas before tiling, a waterproof and highly elastic membrane is used to create an impermeable surface to ensure any wet area does not leak water. Used for all wet areas in bathrooms, showers, wash rooms, patios, terraces and balconies to provide the perfect foundation for laying all types of tiling, inside and out. Specialised tanking installed for compatibility of underfloor electric heating.
