Minton Tile Repairs

Minton Tiles were one of the leading manufacturers of Victorian Tiles.

From their factory in Staffordshire, they produced quality ceramic tiles that are found in so many Victorian Homes across Scotland & England.

And while Minton Tiles were renowned for their quality and beautiful designs, it does not stop them from suffering the same fate as all tiling from the Victorian era.

Heavy foot traffic, rising damp, impact drops and a whole host of other reasons has seen so many of these beautiful Minton Tiled rooms and locations suffer from neglect, wear and damage.

But that is where Were Tiling comes in.  We are one of the leading specialist Victorian Restoration Tilers in Scotland and the North of England.  We are trained and qualified to work on the historic restoration of these original Minton Tiles and have become somewhat of a Minton Tiler Expert.

Our experience of Minton Tiles goes beyond small vestibules and hallway tiling. We have worked on the restoration of some of the most famous Minton Tiled Victorian Buildings of them all.

In Glasgow, there is a Turkish Baths designed in 1870 called Arlington Baths.  In this stunning Victorian era building, the use of Minton Tiles to create geometric tiling designs for the flooring is truly a site to see.


The substrate beneath the geometric tiles has moved over the last 100+ years and we were called in to help fix the problem.  As you can see from the results, we were able to return the Minton Tiles to ‘as new’ state and help restore the Arlington Baths to its original glory.

While this is a larger example of Minton Tile Restoration work that we have done.  Our specialist Victorian Tile Restoration services cover everything from Entranceway / Vestibules to hallways, storm doors and Fire Place /Hearths.

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.

Andy from Glasgow

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.
