A full tiling solution by BAL has been provided for the renovation of a Cheshire country house.
Tiled by Mark Isherwood from Artisan Tiling, the renovation featured intricate brick slips, porcelain plank tiles and polished porcelain. The redevelopment also features an external water feature tiled with split face stone.
400 m2 of tiling was completed on both the ground and first floor of the property. This included the kitchen, four bathrooms and cloak room over a calcium sulfate screed which was sanded and primed with BAL Prime APD and decoupled using BAL Rapid-Mat.
The kitchen area features 1200x300mm Argento Sycamore porcelain plank tiles and a wall feature with split face stone.
As the kitchen and hallway floors weren’t flat, Mark used BAL LEVEL MAX levelling compound to create a smooth and level surface to tile onto.
The four bathrooms and the ground-floor cloakroom feature a range of polished porcelain tiles.
Tiled in a linear pattern, the master en-suite features 895 x 446mm Jumble Cemento tiles, while the loft bathroom is tiled with Aalto Collagna on the floor with 596 x 596mm tiles, and 596 x 295mm tiles on the wall in a linear pattern.
The main family bathroom at the property is tiled in dark brown Aalto Toanna, again in a linear pattern on the floor and walls.
The ground floor cloakroom is tiled in Aalto Cerreto 600 x 300mm also in a linear pattern.
All floor tiles were fixed with BAL SUPERCOVER RAPID-FLEX adhesive and grouted with BAL MICROMAX2 Smoke.
All wall tiles were fixed using BAL SINGLE PART FLEXIBLE in white or grey and grouted using BAL MICROMAX2 grout in varying colours, all primed with BAL PRIME APD first.
BAL worked with Artisan Tiling to provide a full M40 Specification and on-site project support.
Mark said: “I am a great fan of BAL whose products I use on a regular basis. You can always trust BAL for quality, plus they give you great back-up.
“It was a testing job over a long period of time, but BAL were with me every step of the way.”
