Victorian Tiler in St. Andrews

Conservation and Contemporary Mosaic Tile Design Services across St. Andrews, Fife.

On the east coast of Fife, St. Andrews may only be the fourth largest town in Fife but it is one of the most popular and well known places in all of Scotland.  Home to the University of St. Andrews, the third oldest university in the (English speaking) world, it was ranked the number 1 university in all of Scotland by The Sunday Times for 2022.

The home of Golf of course is also St. Andrews with the origins of the game coming from the town which has also held the Golf Open more times than any other course.

With a monastery built in the mid eighth century, being made a Royal Burgh in 1620 and of course, the invention of golf, St. Andrews is rich with history.  So it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian mosaic tiled properties in the town.  And with the popularity of St. Andrews on a seemingly never ending upward trajectory in popularity, the demand to have these older historic mosaic tiled floors has never been higher.

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

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.
