In the Southside of Glasgow, Shawlands is widely seen as a central point in the same way that Byres Road is seen as a central point of the West End. And with such a fantastic combination of sandstone house, tenement flats and modern apartment blocks, there is something for everyone.
That view point can be equally expressed in the styles of home and specifically the tiling features of these homes. As with so much of Glasgow, there is a strong influence of Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian tiling styles in so many of these homes. Stunning original tiled features in kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and entrance ways that perfectly match the styles of these period homes and creates a real wow factor for visitors.
However while these beautiful tiled features are stunning additions to homes in the South Side of Glasgow, time is an enemy to us all. And whether it has been regular foot traffic, dampness in the walls, the vibration from heavy traffic on the streets outside or simple neglect, these once proud mosaic tiled features begin to crack, fall of, fade and even get painted over.
At Were Tiling, we are a speciality tile and what that means is that we are specialists in the restoration, repairing and mending of Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian tiles mosaic patterns.
We are one of only a number of tilers in Glasgow that can genuinely offer this service as it requires a level of precision, patience and specified skills that many tilers will shy away from.
We proudly put maximum effort into the repair and restoration of these old tiles and we always do our very best to refurbish existing tiles where possible so that your mosaic patterned tiling is kept as authentic and original as possible.
So if you live in the Shawlands area and are looking for a reliable, recommended and qualified tiler who can properly repair and restore your Victorian tiled kitchen, bathroom or hallway then Were Tiling is just a phone call away.
