Victorian Tiling Restoration

Across Glasgow there is a full range of period Victorian tiling that have sadly through time become damaged and faded and are in need of restoration.

At Were Specialist Tiling, we are Glasgow’s top tiler for Victorian Tiling repairs, restoration and replacement.


We can provide the full range of Victorian Geometric Tile renovation repairs and finishing across homes in Glasgow and Edinburgh.


Our years of tiling experience in the two largest cities in Scotland has seen us build up a massive level of experience in repairs and reviving worn out and damaged Victorian period tiling for hallways, front door entrances, walls, kitchens and bathrooms.


So whether you live in a classic sandstone property in the West End of Glasgow and need your front door way or hallway tiles restored OR you live in one of the many red tenement flats covering Glasgow and want the common access corridors restored to their former glory, Were Tiling can offer you the very best service as a leading quality tiler in Glasgow.


Whether it is a complete restoration of the existing featured tiling or a careful complimentary tiling project that keeps with the look and feel of the home, at Were Tiling, we can tile it all.


Our tiling services cover:
Replacing badly damaged tiles with either reclaimed Victorian tile equivalent tiles or the tiles of your choice.
Re grouting – either replacing missing grout or whole floor re grouting.
Leveling of floor tiled areas – removal of tiles, renewal of the substrate before reinstating the tiles.
Removal of old screed and other unwanted coverings from the tiles.
Stain and contaminate removal from the tiles.
Application of appropriate micro porous seals and finishing.


While Victorian tiling is part of one of the greatest eras of building in Britain, it doesn’t matter how good they were fitted, time is an enemy to us all.


Issues like building settlement, water saturation from rising damp and even the vibrations from heavy traffic outside are enough to cause general degradation and loss of strength to the bonds that hold your tiles in place.


We will always strive to repair and restore Victorian tiles that can be salvaged. However in situations where the tiles have already been repaired in a botched DIY job or the wrong cementation adhesives have been used, it may not be possible to save all of the tiles. However do not fret. Were Tiling is more than just another Glasgow Tiler. Our passion is the revival of period Victorian tiles and mosaic tiled patterns and we will always do everything in our power to restore and repair the true original tiles.


Because of the variety of Victorian Tiling in Glasgow, it is always best to call us and discuss what work you need done. We are a friendly and professional tiler and can help answer all the questions you may have about restoring your homes tiles to their former glory.

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.
