Just 17 miles from Edinburgh, the Royal Burgh of Haddington in East Lothian is just down the road for us and is therefore one of the areas within East Lothian that we cover for Victorian Tile Restoration.
The name Haddington is Anglo-Saxon in origin, dating back from around the sixth or seventh century AD. While still a small town of less than 10,000 people, the town is filled with notable architectural landmarks for so many difference ers including of course the Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian era. This means that throughout so many of the historic homes in Haddington, there is mosaic and geometric tiling features either in need of repair or simply hidden under carpet or linoleum.
At Were Tiling, we are tiling restoration specialists looking to help restore and preserve the original mosaic and geometric tiled design work from some of the most important eras in British history.
We specialise in Victorian floor tiles, with geometric schemes that encompass the Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian periods, including a range of contemporary designs. With a design consultancy service, we are experts at providing beautiful tiled designs for both residential and commercial properties.
From classic black and white tiles to decorative multi-colour encaustics and contemporary geometric ceramics. Individual geometric tiles are carefully assembled by hand into repeating sections that tessellate to create decorative traditional and contemporary designs.
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 Edinburgh, the restoration of a wally close for tenement flats in Glasgow, or a local shop that wants their name reproduced in a mosaic tiled style, we can do it all.
If you have any questions about the conservation and contemporary tiling work that we do, please do not hesitate to get in touch. You will always find a friendly and experienced voice on the other end of the phone.
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.
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.
