Truro tiling services

When remodelling or refurbishing the interior decor in your home and you need a quality tiler in Truro, you want to know you can rely on the tradesman you're employing. Whether you're looking for ceramic or porcelain tiles for a conservatory, downstairs bathroom or wet room, or you've chosen natural stone floor tiles like slate, limestone or honed and filled travertine, you can contact a recommended tiler in Truro by sending your details through on the enquiry form. From providing advice about the best type of grout and adhesive to use, to using tile trim and borders to neaten rough edges of tiles and using strip seals to waterproof edges beside showers and baths covering pipes in kitchens and bathrooms with boxing in to creating tiled designs with multiple types of tiles, a local tiling specialist can provide the solution.

Types of floor tiles

Although many tiles are available to choose between, some ranges of tiles are only for application on walls, others are specifically for use on floors, or some tiles can be used to decorate either. Floor tiles should have enough texture that when wet they aren't slippery, so that they are safe for use in kitchens and bathrooms where water splashing can occur. When tiling walls, the tiles tend to be thinner, which also makes them cheaper in general. A number of people also choose to combine wall tiles with a border positioned horizontally around walls. Tile retailers and outlets will usually have tiles marked up so you don't purchase the wrong sort of tiles for your floors and walls.

Kitchen tiles

A number of different sorts of tiles are on offer so when you're planning to tile a kitchen work tops, walls or flooring, you'll need to select the best type of tiles. Choosing porcelain or ceramic tiles can be practical when on a budget. If you want exceptional durability, porcelain can meet your needs because it is so hard, however tiles made from either type of material can be purchased with various designs and with glazed or textured surfaces. A more luxurious option is natural stone tiles that can be purchased from tile specialists in a number of different sizes, and both square and rectangle shapes, or you could choose mosaic tiles with mat mesh backing to tile sections of walls or to use as tiled borders. A further possibility that can look effective on walls and floors is modular tile sets and both are available in slate and travertine, with the variety of colours providing an attractive finish. Individuality can be added to any kitchen with the use of handmade tiles which often have raised designs, or for splash backs with a difference, try metallic tiles which look good in a brushed finish.

Truro Tiles made from natural stone

A range of different natural stone tiles are available to choose from that offer a luxurious finish to a wall or floor in your home and an experienced Truro tiler can decorate your surfaces with them. Shower rooms and en suites are often decorated with travertine tiles that are honed and filled, whilst the unfilled versions of the stone tiles are popular in kitchens where splashing is less. Application of natural stone tile sealant should be carried out to prevent surface damage from being affected by discolouration or stains, however tumbled marble and limestone or porous travertine are the most important tile surfaces to seal. Sealant should also be reapplied after around 12 months to ensure the surface remains protected. Slate tiles, which can be used on walls or floors, are another popular choice, which you can purchase from tile suppliers in a variety of colours and with different textures, from smooth to riven surfaces. Tile shops sell natural stone tiles in a range of size options or even as modular packs containing a variety of sized pieces.

Truro tilers are offering professional services

Tilers in Truro provide a variety of services, from laying tiled floors over underfloor heating, which can either be piped or an electric mat, to chipping away old tiles from walls and floors as well as using floor levelling compounds and plaster to level walls and floors to enable them to retile surfaces with stone, ceramic or porcelain tiles. Tiling products can also be supplied by a professional tiler, such as grout and adhesive, and they can provide advice on the best type of adhesion products for your particular tiling task. Once walls have been tiled, the tiled surfaces can be coated with finishing products such as application of coats of sealant. This will protect tiles from discolouring and marking and regular treatment services can be provided by quality Truro tilers to ensure your tiles look attractive for many years.

Rooms that can benefit from tiling

A hard wearing flooring option is tiles, which are suited to being laid on either floors or walls, and you can also create tiled fire surrounds and work surfaces that look attractive. Minton tiled floors can often be found in hallways of Victorian properties, which can be covered with rugs to add warmth and are easy to sweep clean. Tiled kitchens and bathrooms are commonplace, and likewise with flooring and walling in utility rooms, because they are both waterproof and hygienic. For that reason, tiled floors are popular for families with pets and children. Tiles are also frequently used for flooring in conservatories because they provide a cool flooring surface even when the room is warm and by installing underfloor heating systems, warmth can be provided in winter.
