Victorian Geometric Floor Restoration
If you have any mosaic feature, period
or contemporary, that requires attention, we offer a full restoration
service to revive these attractive architectural features.
Listed below are some examples of common problems:
- Missing, damaged or loose tiles
- Evidence of subsidence
- Surface Grime - paint, adhesives, sealants
- Ingrained dirt
- Inconsistency with building alterations
For example, shown on the right is a hallway that has suffered from
subsidence and other severe damage.
In order to achieve the
end result which is shown on the right the following steps were taken:
- The tiles in the affected area (approx 2 sq.m) were carefully removed
- Prior to the re-installation of the design
some structural work was undertaken by a building firm in order
to strengthen the joists
- A suitable re-inforced base was fitted in
place of the damaged original
- The original tiles were re-fitted and any
missing tiles (including encaustic tiles) were replaced with modern
- Once fixed the floor was then grouted and
fire place is a treasured focal point for any room often
incorporating decorative tile panel and hearth tile designs.
Pictured is an example of how care and restoration can
revitalise and preserve these original features. Here
the glazed geometric hearth tiles had loosened in several
areas, in particular adjacent to the floor boards. These
were carefully lifted and re-fixed, missing tiles were
replaced with either salvaged originals or appropriate
modern equivalents. The vertical panels were badly damaged
and were replaced with a new design. The tiles were then
