September 2018 45° porcelain plank floor tiing with underfloor heating in Chesterfield.
After extensive levelling and insulating, this 35sq m kitchen floor was fitted with a Pro Warm 185w Underfloor heating and uncoupling system, over 2 zones both independently controlled. With the room being long and thin it was decided to lay the planks at 45° to make more of a feature of the floor. The tiles were finished with Kerakoll fugalite bio parquet epoxy grout, perfect for wood effect tiles and 100% stain and water proof.
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 2018 Glass link room at the old vicarage in Barlow, Derbyshire.

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.
