Victorian Tiling Restoration

Historic encaustic and geometric floor tiles are usually made of fairly robust ceramic such as Minton Tiles. The most common problems encountered with these period tiles is 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. All of which have absorbed into the body of the tiles, turning them black. Our Victorian Tiling Restoration work has seen us travel the country restoring geometric and mosaic tiling floors to ‘as new’ condition.

What Our Customers Say

recommend tiler for Victorian Restoration Work Brian from Newcastle recommended Geometric Tiler

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.

recommend tiler for Victorian Restoration Work Andy from Glasgow recommended Geometric Tiler

We were looking for our Storm Door area and hallway to have a matching contemporary geometric tile design to them. We want a modern take that worked with our period Victorian home. Andrew was one of three tilers we call. He was the only one who took any measurements and really looked at the set up that we wanted. We went Were because they seemed to know what they were talking about and we were impressed with their detailed quote breakdown. It meant we knew exactly what to expect. And the end result - we could not be more happy with the end results. Our hallway looks better than ever.
