About Phil's in with Tiles

Love Tiling. Floor preparation for tiles on Wood, Concrete and other types of flooring.

Brick effect Tiles I specialise in its a bit of an art as you can see from the photo's. Other specialities in Tiling are ornate tiling, mitered edging of tiles Fire place refurbishment with new tiles. This is the artistic side of tiling where precision and accuracy is critical.

I take pride in my work. I can also install Underfloor heating.

Fit wood floors I use a Plastic Ply which is revolutionary solution for fixing tiles and natural stone to timber floors. Prevents problems of damage to tiles and tile joints by avoiding the effects of timber shrinkage, warping and rotting. Plastic Ply eliminates the need to install thick sheets of marine grade plywood (min 15mm) or similar over-boarding products in order to achieve an attractive and sound tiled floor finish.
I also use a Tile levelling system for floors tiles which gives a better result great for uneven floors like concrete floors but also on even floors as it levels the tiles to one another.
I can work weekends and evenings so no need to take time of work. I only do one job at a time until the job is finished. I can supply materials N & C products which are better quality but believe it or not prices cheaper than the other brands out there which are filled with sand which I find scratches tiles and gives less adhesion. I am accurate I pay attention to detail. Free estimates.
Can work during the evenings and weekends to suit your working patterns so you don't have to take days of work also weekends at no extra charge.

Plumbing if required to remove or fit a new bath or sink see photos.

I am a Precision Toolmaker Engineer to trade working to exacting tolerances in that trade and over the 30 years.
Trained by my father who was a Tiler to trade over the past 40 years yes I was only 10 years old when my father showed me how to tile lol. I have worked with him for years in his business before he retired and handed the business to me. I will not compromise and you will not be disappointed. I have not been self taught see some of my work and also feed back from some of my customers. I work alone and take my time if I state 1 day you will only pay for one day if the job takes longer I will work until it is finished to my standards which will be to your delight I promise this to you will not be disappointed. I don't rush a job to get to another job so you can rest at piece knowing that it will be finished properly.

If plumbing i.e. Bath, sink or shower is needing removed prior to tiling I can also do this.

Please see some of my work shown within the photos section. The bathrooms were completely build and installed by myself.

Qualifications

I am a time served Precision Toolmaker to trade working with a HNC HND City and guilds 1 2 & 3 this does not affect how I charge lol. In my engineering trade I work to tolerances of microns and thou's of an inch. Been tiling for over 26 years from small intricate tiling projects to large projects. Built a house and extension and over the years tiled more bathrooms,kitchens, halls and dining rooms that I care to mention. I cut tiles acutely around features such as light switches, Toilet bases (if tiling under the unit if not possible) I use diamond pads to finish cut edges I am pedantic about finish and accuracy. I don't get paid until the job is finished (Do not ever pay any Tiler or builder until the job is finished). I have fitted under floor heating systems with thermostats under tiles tiled on concrete and many other surfaces.
Important!!! If you want your tiles to look and last don't take on tradesmen who will rush the job and have jobs stacked one on top of the other leaving behind a trail of disasters just so they get paid and get the Job and so you get the job done fast. It's a falls economy and will only end in disaster. I have been called in to tiling jobs after the jobs that others have done to rectify the work carried out so please take your time get references and even ask me if you want to see the work I have done don't rush in and spend thousands as you can get the same work done at a fraction of the cost but it may take a little longer to do or get done. Do not take on a company that say they can do the lot in two days trust me they will cut corners and your left with the Problems. Get a qualified bathroom plumber to fit the bathroom get a qualified tiler to do the tiling and let them do it properly I can fit Vanity units remove and refit the toilet correctly and fit baths but would still get a good plumber to do the bathroom fit if you require one I only trust one plumber which I have known for over 45 years any please take your time ask questions do your research on the projects you are wanting done.
