Luxury New Build Home
Internal Limestone floor over four levels - circa 550m2, Richmond, London
One of our largest projects. We were invited to come in at the end of the works after the main tiling contractor did not meet the high standards of the client. We raked out all the joints and topped up at a higher level. We then diamond cut the whole surface of the floors covering three levels and sealed the floor. Circa 550m2 in total.
We also undertook the diamond cutting of three bathrooms, two fireplaces, kitchen worktop repair and new stone installations of some missing items.

Private Residential Hallway
Victorian Tiled Hallway
We were invited to inspect the floor after tiles were simply lifting away from the subbase. On inspection the tiles had been boned direct to ply sheets and not primed. We then altered the project to allow for a full floor replacement with new tiles like for like. We removed all the old tiles. Prepared the floor correctly and installed new tiles in the same pattern.
A beautiful project we are very proud of.
Kitchen Worktop Installation Repairs
A poorly fitted and half finished new worktop by a fabricator left the client with open joints, various thickness of worktops and missing upstands left in the garden. We came in and removed the worktops, adjusted thicknesses and cut upstands to the correct sizes before installing it all again in the high finish the client expects.
