Victorian Tiler in Comrie

In Comrie, because of its conservation status, there are many original mosaic and geometric tiled floors dating back to the Victorian era.

The historic conservation village in Perth & Kinross is home to many historic tiling designs in residential homes including the famous Mackintosh Building which is now a tourism destination where you can actually spend the night!

Yet time can be a cruel mistress. And so many of these original Victorian tiled floors have suffered through over a century of heavy foot traffic, neglect, sun staining and an ever increasing build up of grease and oils that have seen them become worn, faded and cracked.

At Were tiling, we are a specialist Victorian Restoration Tiler. Based in Glasgow, we cover all of Perth & Kinross including Comrie, providing a complete restoration service and tile cleaning service for original period tiling.

Whether you are looking at restoring an existing period tiled floor or, like so many new home owners in Comrie, you have lifted up the hallway carpet only to discovered that the original mosaic tiled floor is still intact and just needs a specialist tiling restoration expert to restore it to its former glory. At Were Tiling, we can help.

How does restoration tiling work?

We use a variety of traditional and contemporary tiling methods to achieve the highest quality tile restoration work for our customers. Where possible we use the original floor tiles from your home, combined with reclaimed historic tiles and, when this is not possible, we use reproduction geometric tiles sourced from Winckelmans or Craven Dunnills.

You can find out more about how tile restoration work is carried out with the link below.

Throughout our website, you will find photo examples and case studies of Victorian tiler restoration work that we have carried out across not just in Comrie but all over Scotland and North England. Whether it has been the restoration of a Victorian hallway tiling project for a hotel in Glasgow, the restoration of a wally close for tenement flats, or a local shop that wants their name reproduced in a mosaic tiled style, we can do it all.

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.
