Press & Articles

Articles and press releases related to our work and experience in restoring historic floor and wall tiling in Scotland & Northern England.

At Were Tiling, we are always focused on the tiling restoration work that we do for our customers. We are particularly proud that through experience and quality service, we have become one of the leading conservation tiling experts in Scotland and the North of England.

And that experience has been shared recently in the Summer issue of Grout Magazine, the monthly magazine offered by the British Association for Modern Mosaic

Like so many of our fellow tiling restoration specialsits in the field, it is our duty to help restore and maintain period Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian geometric and mosaic tiling for homes across the country. Unlike more conventional tiling, tile restoration is a specialist form of tiling that requires both understanding of the method of mosaic tiling and also the history behind it. From how to carefully restore original Minton tiles to the full restoration of an original Turkish Bath Suite in a Victorian Baths. Being able to pass this experience on through articles in the likes of the monthly British Association for Modern Mosaic Magazine and other media is a great way for us to both be recognised for the restoration work that we can do whilst also highlighting how valuable these original period tiling features are.

If you would like to know more about our services and the value and importance of restoring original Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian tiling in homes across Scotland and the North of England, please contact Andrew by calling 07932 716 716 or email

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.
