Unfortunately not all original floors can be restored and when this is the case I can offer a replica floor in its place.
A lot of my clients who are in this dilemma often choose to replace the design with what was originally is situ.
For my customers who face a change the design options are endless.
So many colours and layouts to choose from, once you have chosen a central pattern then a border detail can be added to the area which really completes the picture.
In order to replace an original floor which is beyond repair the tiles are firstly removed followed by the existing screed.
A new screed is then laid into place, so etimes I use a traditional method of sand and cement and sometimes a liquid screed is a better option.
Once the screed has dried out ( drying times vary depending on system used ) the tiles can then be laid into place.
I always set the floor out to be sympathetic with original setting out methods to give as much of an authentic appearance as possible.
Once the tiles have been laid and grouted the floor is then sealed to finish.
From my many years of working with this type of floor tile, no matter what design layout or colour combination every single completed floor never fails to stand out as the main feature in that grand entrance hallway, a floor that will last for century’s.
