Shower Repair (Cowboy Style) A story about grout restoration experts, plumbing professionals, leak healing gurus and an assasination of a perfectly innocent shower cubicle. Here is an example of a job that has zero...
Not everything that glitters is gold
The grey looking sealer coat should last in tact for up to 15 years. I was called to rescue this job 9 months after the bathroom was restored by ‘professionals’. To my question- well, what about the guarantee- the owner just answered that he’s got no desire to let those people inside his house ever again. He preferred to pay for the job to someone who actually knew what he was doing.
My dear potential customers, this someone would be me. If your grout allows for proper sealing in the first place, you will get minimum 5 years guarantee for sealer coat adhesion. It’s quite possible that I will extend this period in the future. The problem with me is, I don’t trust any labels or expert opinions. I trust in what I see. I changed my company profile from tiling to tile restoration in 2009. Since then, I did not have a single complaint about my sealer coating (whoever disagrees, speak now or forever hold your peace). Conclusion- my work is rock solid for at very least 6 years. Hence, I feel quite safe giving you 5 years guarantee.
Remember, the best bargain is to pay for something only once.
Do you think it might be a good idea to have your tiles or grout restored by an actual tiler? The baby on the photo is me from way back... Between now and than the amount of tiles I lied would probably pave the way from Europe to Auckland. We're talking here over 25 years experience in the trade. I'm the man who knows what's happening under your tiles by looking at and touching them. I'm the one who will tell you exactly what your tiling job needs and what can be overlooked. First of all I will asses if the job is fit to be restored before you waste a cent on it. I will present you with different plans of action depending on what exactly you want to achieve. If various solutions to a single problem do exist, my quotation will show you either all of them (different price options) or at least the most reasonable ones. All it cost you is a phone call. Quotations are free.
We are backtracking a bit from the main subject. However, knowing what kind of tiler I am might bring some soothing effect and help resolving any trust issues. The photos on this page might be self explanatory. If not, don't worry, they come with 'subtitles'. It's worth having a closer look as it might show you the main thing- my attention to details. You might notice that layout of tiles on my jobs makes sense, or silicone lines look nice. Not to mention that the complexity of some of my tiling projects might guide you towards an epiphany: 'Damn... This guy ain't no beginner'.
