Minton Tile Floor Restoration

Post by Nick » Tue 6th Jul, 2004 2:56 pm

I have recently moved into a property with a minton tiled floor in the hallway. Unfortunately, the floor is in need of restoration as the colours have faded and some of the tiles have lifted. Fortunately, there are enough tiles in the outside porch to replace the ones in the hallway.

Does anyone know of anyone that could possibly restore this floor? I have called a number of tilers from out of the yellow pages but none of them are interested. There a few sites I've found on the net but they are all based around London.

The house is in Stourbridge in the West Midlands. Hopefully someone will know who can restore this floor................

Cheers

Evelyn

Have you looked at the 'Seeking Specialists' part of this site? I am sure there are ceramic specialists there.

Also - try the Victorian Society, which may be able to give contacts, and the Tile and Architectural Ceramic Association , which may also have some names to give you.

My Brother has just moved into a property on the outskirts of Coventry. Did you have any look with Ross Western? If you did would you recomend him?

Hi Tracey

In response to your e-mail, I did contact Ross, but unfortunately like everyone else I have spoken to regarding this, he is booked up for over six months. There seem to be very few people doing this specialised area of work and those that do are very hard to find and even harder to get round to give you a quote. The only quote I received was very expensive and I am about to have a wooden floor put down over the top. It's a shame I know, but I might consider restoring it in the future.

Hope this helps. If you need any more details, get back to me on nickpardoe@blueyonder.co.uk and I can provide you with a list of companies that specialise in this area of work.

Cheers

Nick
