July 2018 Failed Anhydrite floor tiling in Chesterfield.

This 90sq m floor in Wingerworth, Derbyshire was tiled over 18 months ago but almost straight away the tiles came loose due to a number of issues. The floor was in terrible shape and required extensive preparation in the form of dust extracted diamond grinding, levelling to several areas and large cracks resin filled. An uncoupling membrane was fitted and the floor tiled with 600x600 rectified porcelain from waxmans with the subtle grain flowing in one direction.

June 2017 Reclaimed brick slips Sheffield

17th century Reclaimed brick slips in Derbyshire. Sourced from a local building which was demolished in Chesterfield, these bricks were machined into brick slips to allow them to live again in the form of this lovely fireplace. With the heat output from a wood burning stove, it was important to first board the area with a fire rated cement board.

May 2017 Slate Floor tiles Derbyshire.

This job was for a regular customer in Rowsley, Derbyshire with a new stone built extension in keeping with the surroundings.

A natural stone tile was always the right choice for this floor and in the end they went with a 600x600 slate tile which was reasonably calibrated and beautifully smooth. With no other source of heating in this 40sq meter room, the underfloor heating is a primary heat source.

Finished off with a metro tile splashback, what a transformation.

March 2017 porcelain plank tiles Chesterfield

This extension in Chesterfield was built with a water underfloor heating system under a gypsum based screed which are becoming increasingly popular in domestic builds. After around 18 months and many moisture tests the screed was finally dry enough for tiling. The surface laitence was removed and we fitted wood effect porcelain planks, finished with chocolate colour grout. We also carried out the same job on the neighbours house who had the same extension at the same time.
