Historic Tile Restoration

Historic encaustic and geometric floor tiles are usually made of fairly robust ceramic. The most common problems encountered are a dull, dirty appearance due to over a hundred years of wear and tear and the build up of multiple coatings of waxes and linseed oil which have absorbed into the body of the tiles and turned black. It’s importamt to remember that any cleaning treatment on old floors are always experimental so different processes must be explored to get the best results.

What Our Customers Say

Brian from Newcastle

We were replacing a carpet in our hall and discovered the original Victorian tiling was still there. Andrew came to our home, looked at the tiling and gave us a quote with no hassle. His attention to detail and careful and methodical approach are clear in the end results. We are so delighted with the work that he has done. We never thought about having a tiled hallway but we are more than delighted with the results and it has increased the value of our home considerably.

Sharon from Glasgow

The walled tiling of our tenement flat hallway was beginning to fall apart. Myself and my neighbours agreed that something needed to be done. We didn't even realise that restoration tilers like Andrew existed in Glasgow. We are so thrilled with the results and the Wally Close tiling work that he did. Our hallway looks better than ever and it has added a new sense of pride with everyone in the tenement.

At WERE we take a holistic approach to your home or commercial property. Giving you a simple and reliable experience that brings the beauty of tiling directly to your door.
