Specification

Surface Treated:

Jura Limestone Sun Room Extension

Job History

The client had a kitchen with Jura grey limestone that was laid 12 years ago. They had just had a 65 mtr sun room built on to the kitchen and were keen to run the same stone through. The main problems were:
The stone would not be an exact match
The existing stone had been cut to the shape of the old doorway
There was electric underfloor heating under the existing floor.

Client Requirements

The customer required the following from the contractor

  1. To removed the shaped tiles around the old door way, with out damaging the under floor heating.
  2. Lay an uncoupling mat for the new limestone floor area.
  3. Once the installation is complete, all the existing tiles and new need to be cleaned and diamond polished to all be at the shine level of shine.
  4. Seal the floor to make water and stain repellent.

Tile Master Specification & Process

Firstly we removed the cut tiles, constantly checking the heating cables remained intact.
Next we laid an uncoupling mat to the new screeded floor and installed the new limestone.
Once the installation was complete we cleaned and diamond polished out all the scratches on the old floor. We then diamond polished the entire floor to achieve a consistent sheen and sealed with all in one water based.
The result was very satisfying and the customer was delighted.

Using Tile Master Honed Sealer we were able to seal the whole floor protecting against and water and oil spillages in the future, by using this sealer it also helped to make the natural colour of the stone really stand out without seeing any of the etching marks.

I cannot recommend TileMaster highly enough. From start to finish, I was met with friendly, professional people. Work was carried out on time to... such a high standard. We now have a beautiful, paraquet floor which had been carpeted for 70 years! You would not believe the state it was in. Thank you TileMaster.read more

I found TileMaster via a Google search. I had uncovered an old Victorian tiled kitchen floor prior to installing a new kitchen and I wanted to... restore/conserve it. I contacted Lee McCarthy at TileMaster to ask about types of cleaners and brushes. Lee gave great advice freely and I opted for two types of tile stripper to try; Tile & Stone Stripper which is solvent based and the TM Stripper which is water based. These are both great products, although I preferred the water-based stripper. I found it easier to use as it gave me longer to work into the tile surface while using the 4″ Winnex HD Hand Brush attached to my angle grinder. Yet again, I received great advice from Lee when it came to choosing a sealer and I used Colour Enhancing Sealer – Solvent Based. The sealer is excellent and has done a great job. My only word of caution is to ensure that the tiles are fully dry before using. I had a some tiles had efflorescence on them after I failed to dry them completely before applying the sealer. All in all, very good products and an excellent customer support service. Thank you Leeread more

I was recommended to TileMaster through a third party and got in touch with them. I found them to be ultra professional in every way. They attended... the property in order to give me a quote on the project within 24 hours and delivered the quote to me the same day. They are all genuinely very easy to deal with, polite and are a friendly team of people to undertake your project for you. Their communication was excellent and the quality of their workmanship was of an exceptionally high standard. I am very happy to give them a high recommendation and will use them on any future projects without hesitation.read more

The support they offer and the passion they have for this business is second to none. Well worth every penny.read more
