Ongoing Work

We are pleased to have secured ongoing tiling work which will continue for the next two and a half years. As always, we wish to distribute work, when possible, to those who support us by buying their materials from us regularly and building working relationships with them. We will be happy to do the same for any tilers that start and continue to regularly buy from us (i.e. once a week or fortnight).


Consultations Save the Day!

When working on tiling projects, some common issues arise, usually whilst tiling has commenced wasting time and causing a headache for the tiler and the customer.

Take a look at these two scenarios that play out every day across Britain and see which one you prefer.

Scenario 1 - Mrs Chance

Purchasing her tiles from a reputable tile store, Mrs Chance received excellent service. The staff, both friendly and informative, knowledgeably advised her on her project and was offered store collection or home delivery of her tiles.

So far, so good.

Some days later, a punctual and friendly tiler arrived, courteously removing his shoes at Mrs Chance's front door and greeted by boxed tiles and a cup of tea. The area awaiting tiling was empty and prepared for the tiler to begin work, however, some crucial information was still missing. What laying pattern did the customer want, which colour of grout may she prefer, grout widths and tile trim?

Mrs Chance had not been made aware of these choices and Mr Chance would not return home from work until long after the working day, preventing the couple to make an informed and unified decision. Both Mrs Chance and the tiler wanted tiling to commence without delay. After some enquiry from Mrs Chance, reluctantly, the tiler gave their opinion but emphasised that this was Mrs Chance's decision.

Through no fault of the tiler or the customer, the project took almost two weeks longer than scheduled and caused headaches for both parties. A plethora of questions, sourcing materials and waiting for deliveries elongated completion time and required the tiler to reschedule other projects. The decisions Mrs Chance made, or passed onto the tiler, were rushed in the interest of time, decisions that she or Mr Chance may come to regret.

Scenario 2 - Mrs Organised

Upon her visit to MTM Tile Showroom, Mrs Organised was guided to tiles suitable for her project and advised to select some free samples to try in her soon-to-be tiled space. Decision made and tiles ordered, the tiles were quality checked for damages and batch consistency. With Mrs Organised purchase of tiles, she received a complimentary 1-hour consultation to discuss the details of her project at a time of her choosing.

Husband in tow, the couple enjoyed a biscuit and beverage of their choice whilst discussing laying patterns, grout widths and much more with the guidance of a knowledgeable tiler. During the consultation, they learned about adhesives, matting, sealers & aftercare products to ensure the best result. Mr & Mrs Organised also discovered their options for shower shelving and underfloor heating, extras they had not considered but became incorporated into their project's design. All these decisions, materials and components were recorded in an easy-to-digest consultation folder to help manage their project and ensure everything was accounted for. With the option to order or reserve all the products themselves, they chose for their tiler to purchase the materials outlined in the folder and awaited the day of tiling.

The whole project went smoothly, with all decisions made ahead of time and products awaiting the tiler at the residence before starting.

Which scenario do you prefer as either tiler or customer?

A 1-hour consultation saves time, money and headaches.
