Our quarry floor restoration services:

What to expect:

Quarry tiled floors common problems and Solutions - We provide the full range of services

Common Problems Likely causes Our services
Quarry tiles attract dirt and stain easily and are difficult to clean.
  • Ineffective and inferior seals /polishes applied which fail to prevent soiling of the tiles.
  • Removal of all existing seals back to bare original clay tile - the stripping technique as well as the difficulty /ease of this process will depend on the seals previously applied.
  • Recoat with a good quality easy care for protective penetrating seal.
Quarry tiles are yellowing and discoloured; the finish is obscuring the natural colour and beauty of the tile.
  • In correct seals applied – as above – the polish has degraded and yellowed.
  • We will Remove inappropriate seals and treat as above.
Quarry tiles are cracked or chipped.
  • Tiles laid on newly laid concrete floor that has not had sufficient drying/curing time; the subsequent movement of the concrete causes the tiles to crack.
  • Quarry tiles laid on incorrect adhesives – the adhesive should be flexible to allow for contraction and expansion.
  • In cases where the tiles are newly laid then If under floor heating is installed then this should be set to its lowest setting and gradually increased over a period of 4 weeks; setting the temperature on a high setting will inevitably lead to cracking of the tiles as the adhesives and grout should be permitted to dry naturally as well as acclimatizing the tiles.
  • Structural movement – natural under floor movement of concrete etc.; again this is more prevalent in cases where the adhesives are not flexible and tends to occur at weak spots such as doorways.
  • We will carefully remove the tile/s before replacing the tile embedding it on a flexible adhesive and grout.
  • Please note that if you have electrical circuit type under floor heating system fitted that there is a risk of damage to the system and that whilst we take every care in removing the tile that we are unable to accept responsibility for any damage.
  • There is far less risk of damage involved with a 'wet' under floor heating system which consists of water heated pipes located 1-2" below the substrate and in any case any damage can be more easily rectified.
Quarry tiles grouting is discoloured or missing in areas.
  • General wear and tear; inappropriate seals applied which attract soiling.
  • We will deep chemical clean the grout and in most cases the grout will return almost to its original condition.
  • Missing grout will be replaced with very closely matching filler. After the above the grout will be sealed with the same high efficiency penetrating seal as above.
  • In cases where the grout is generally loose, crumbling etc. we can also remove all of the grout and replace it with fresh grout.
