Service Guide for Tiling

Get Quotes from Tiling Contractors

A tiling contractor is the ideal partner when you’re building or improving rooms in your home. They can tile any room of your home in a tile that complements the overall look of the room. Tiling contractors can also assist with activities such as grouting and underfloor heating.

Popular Tiling Services Include:

Kitchen tiles

South Africans value family and kitchens are invariably used for family dinners & discussions. Tiling contractors can turn a kitchen into a more comfortable and inviting room by tiling it with bright coloured tiles.

Bathroom renovations

The bright sunlight in South Africa can be used to make dark rooms—such as bathrooms with small windows—lighter. This is done by laying white or other light-reflecting tiles. The reflecting light also makes small spaces seem bigger.

Showers and wet rooms

A new trend in South Africa is to create a whole wet room instead of a bathroom with a separate shower. Tiling contractors ensure that home owners don’t slip inside their showers or wet rooms by laying non-slip tiles. Smooth tiles are excellent for walls and can be easily cleaned.

Grouting and cleaning tiles

Due to humid air—brought on by wet and warm climates in South Africa—tiles accumulate grime over time. Tiling contractors are experts at cleaning tiles or re-grouting them if necessary.

Underfloor heating

South African winters can become freezing. The best way to counter the cold inside a home is through underfloor heating. Expert tiling contractors can install this feature and lay tiles over it afterwards.

5 Tips When Tiling

1. How modern is the style you picked?

The tiling inside a building adds aesthetic value. When you aim to sell the building in a few years, will the style you picked still be acceptable to future buyers? It’s difficult to keep up with changing fashions, but you can pick a tile and look that is timeless.

2. Has the space been well prepared?

Tiling requires the surface to be completely dry before any work starts. Keep an eye on the tiling contractors. Make sure they follow all the necessary steps so your tiles don’t lift off the floor within days of being laid.

3. View the tiles at home before buying

Tiles will have a certain effect in a specific space. The amount of light and the reflection of other surfaces may change how a certain tile looks. Ask for samples to view inside your home so you can make an informed decision.

4. Imagine the end result

There’s a reason that software developers create programs for interior design. It enables designers and home owners to see a finished room with all the colours & textures incorporated. What looks exceptional in your mind’s eye, may not work in reality. Don’t simply pick colours and at random. Imagine how it will match with everything else in the room. Asking professional advice from your tiler or a decorator is a smart idea.

5. Draw a picture for the tiling contractors

Misunderstandings result in frustration. If your contractors don’t carry out instructions and tile your rooms exactly as you imagined the final product, you’ll be left with an expensive mistake. Avoid some misunderstandings by drawing pictures instead of only giving verbal instructions. This serves as an accurate reference for tilers to use if you’re not there to keep an eye.
