We were so impressed with Martin’s work. His attention to detail is next level, a true perfectionist. I chose quite a complicated large hexagonal mosaic design and they are absolutely flawless, we couldn’t be happier. I have recommended him to all our friends and family.
Martin was punctual, professional and a pleasure to have in our home. His work was excellent, we will be using him again for our next project without doubt.
I used Brand Professional Tiling for my kitchen tiling and was over the moon with the result. Martin Brand is no ordinary tiler, he has a very good aesthetic eye and was able to lend advice about various details of the design throughout the process. Everyone comments on how beautiful they look!
Martin has provided for me an excellent service throughout. His standard of work has been more than satisfactory and he has been a pleasure to work with. Martin proved very helpful and flexible with designs and advice, willing to go the 'extra mile' to keep the bathroom job moving. Martin has proved both competent and trustworthy and I would definitely use him again.
Ceramic tile - Made from clay and sand fired in a kiln, patterns can be printed and can be left unglazed or glazed by heating silica onto the surface. Used on wall and floor.
Porcelain tile - Made from kaolin clay, feldspar rock, silica and coloured with oxides. It is fired twice at higher heats, thus making it denser and harder than ceramic tile. Having a very low absorption rate it need not be glazed unless when to prevent staining. The process of polished porcelain cuts the surface of the tile therefore needs to be sealed if not already done in factory. Used on wall and floor.
Terracotta tile - (baked earth) Made from local clay it has a reddish spectrum of colour. It is naturally porous and therefore needs to be soaked before fixing. The tiles can be treated with boiled linseed oil which naturally darkens the body and must be sealed before grouting. When glazed with pigment and silica it is made watertight. Used on wall and floor.
Quarry tile - Made from natural clay it is extruded into thick tiles and hard fired. These are non porous, commonly unglazed and can be used outside. Mainly used on floor.
Limestone (sedimentary) - A calcite rock made from skeletal marine organisms, silica and silts. It is susceptible to water and acids, so any spills must be cleaned immediately, and never with vinegar, only pH neutral cleaners. Acid rain easily weathers limestone therefore be cautious when using outdoors. The stone must be sealed. Used on wall and floor.
Travertine (sedimentary) - A limestone deposit from hot springs. The body of rock is full of voids, so it's very porous, very low density and low compressive strength. Resin is used to fill the holes when in factory, but underlying holes appear as stone is worn down. The stone must be sealed. Avoided in high traffic areas but used on wall and floor.
Marble (metamorphic) - A result of metamorphosed limestone or dolostone due to high tectonic heat and pressure, causes a re-crystallization of the mineral grains. A durable and solid body of rock, it ranges naturally occurring patterns and colours. A high polished finish is most desirable yet very slippery when wet. The rock being porous is prone to staining thus it needs to be sealed. Dulled in high traffic areas but used on wall and floor.
Sandstone (sedimentary) - Made from the mineral grains of quartz and feldspar transported by fluids and set to rest on previous layers adding more pressure to create the rock. A soft yet durable stone, it is resistant to weathering and can be used outdoors. Tiles must be cleaned with a pH neutral cleaner, especially no bleaches. Due to the arrangement of sand particles the stone is very porous and must be sealed to prevent stains and salt attack. Used on wall and floor.
Granite (igneous) - Formed from the magma of rising volcanic activity that has not emerged from the earths crust, it consists of quartz, feldspar and mica. Its an extremely hard rock, difficult to scratch, very high compressive strength and heat resistant. It must only be cleaned with pH neutral cleaners. The grainy structure of the rock is very permeable and to prevent stains must be sealed. Used on wall and floor.
Basalt (igneous) - A volcanic rock which is formed from lava that exits the earths crust and cools quickly. Its made of quartz, feldspar and argon gas. It weathers rapidly and changes a rust red colour through oxidation, hence it is normally dyed in factory. The gases leave a capillary matrix of voids in the body of rock therefore its very absorbant and porous, needing to be heavily sealed before, during and after fitting. Used on wall and floor.
Slate (metamorphic) - Made from heated highly pressured layers of sedimentary shale rock mainly of clays or fine grained basalt. Its tough and waterproof but will need to be sealed to prevent staining. Used on wall and floor.
Cement tile - Handmade by hydraulically pressing a colourful and decorative pigment layer into a molded layer of dehydrated fine Portland cement and a coarse layer of Portland cement and sand. It is air dried and unglazed. They need to be sealed after installation. Used on wall and floor.
Glass / mirror tile - Made by varying methods often molten glass (can be recycled) poured into a cast and backed by a white coating or an image. Can be more susceptible to breaking under stress from substrate shifting. They do not need to be sealed. Used on walls and floors only if floor graded.
Metal tile - Made either solid from forging and extrusion or, capped over ceramic tile. Can be steel, tin, brass and copper. Susceptible to scratches. Does not need to be sealed. Used on wall and floor.
Quartz tile - Made from crushed quartz stone and bound in polymer resin, its formed in slabs and polished down. The resin gives some flexibility which is reduced over time, being unstable to UV they should be avoided in outdoor applications. The tile needs to be sealed before and after installation. Used on wall and floor.
Granting the ability to set preferred temperatures throughout your house, putting the manipulation of your household's heating convection literally at your fingertips. Brand Professional Tiling can calculate your rooms thermal capacity,the required insulation, wattage rating, and supply and fit UFH to any floor substrate. Using this perfect opportunity is a step in the right direction.
UFH can replace the use of radiators in homes and is commonly used in bathrooms, kitchens, conservatories, living rooms and hallways.
Most floor materials such as vinyl, laminate, wood and tile can be fitted over underfloor heating.
Ultimately natural stones are the most efficient surfaces to heat as they perform as excellent heat conductors, taking shorter times to warm up, and maintaining the temperatures for much longer.
Brand Professional Tiling can calculate your rooms thermal capacity,the required insulation, wattage rating, and supply and fit UFH to any floor substrate. Using this perfect opportunity is a step in the right direction.
A wet-room is a high value luxurious asset to any household.
Installing one creates a waterproof environment with flush to floor level drainage, and surfaces that are easy to keep clean and hygienic.
It changes a bathroom to one that's truly accessible for people of all abilities, as the need for shower trays and cubicle doors is eliminated.
If you want to create a bathroom at the top of your building, take heed, water loves to travel one way... down!
It is highly recommended to have an under floor barrier to mitigate the possibility of a leak that can cause much destruction to the levels below.
Brand Professional Tiling can design and fit your wet-room installation along with many unique optional design features, from tiled bathtubs and benches to shower decks and interior wall partitions.
We use a range of water tanking systems which means that whatever substrate it is, any room in your home can become the stylish modern bathing environment you desire.
