We have successfully completed wall tiling projects for both residential and commercial premises. Some of our wall tiling projects have been in commercial premises in spaces with high footfall e.g. reception areas, hallways, foyer. Our wall tiling team will transform the look of your residential or commercial premises at competitive prices. For a successful finish, good surface preparation work is needed before installing tiles. It is key that a level surface is created before installing tiles. This is where you see the difference between professional tilers like us and novice tillers. These are key steps to give you that professional finish.
We make sure we survey the walls for hidden pipes to avoid damaging them while tiling. We note where there are pipes and treat them carefully from other areas in our surface preparation stage.
Cleaning the surface
For that excellent finish, we take out old wallpaper, paint or even tiles from the surface. Then wash the walls with an ammonia-based cleaner. We may also use a filler to cover any holes to create a smooth even surface.
Number of tiles needed
A combination of experience and good measurement skills is used to figure out the number of tiles needed for a wall. The surface area to be tiled divided by size of the tiles. We also factor in possible damages. That is why we are experts in wall tiling in Northampton.
Choosing the right tiles
Floor tiles and Wall tiles have different thickness. It is key to get the right tiles suitable for your walls. For instance, ceramic or porcelain tiles are good for bathrooms, glass tiles are good for focus walls, Slate is good for walls and floors etc. This is where our expertise as the top wall tilers in Northampton shows.
Using the right adhesive
Grout is used to fill gaps between the wall tiles, so they are strengthened. Mortar is used to bond bricks together as part of the building work while thinset allows the cement to become hydrated.
