Victorian Minton tiled floor restoration in Leeds

A small Victorian minton tiled floor in Leeds we restored - this floor had water penetrating under an old door which had soaked the lime based and then dried out. This left some large cracks in the floor as the screed dried which caused numerous tiles to become detatched.

We had to dig out a large part of the screed as it was too loose and one side of the crack was higher than the other. Once the a new screed had been inserted and was dry we used a mixture of reclaims and reproductions from Jackfields to replace broken and missing tiles. There are other reproduction tile companies but Jackfields typically have the best colour matches and will also work in a floor based on imperial tile sizes as their tiles match with tiles made in inches.

Alot of time was spent cleaning off any tiles that could be re used and from the edges of the tiles that formed the perimeter of the area to be repaired. If this part of the work is rushed the end result will never be a particularly convincing restoration. This was a fairly small floor but like many before would have been lost if an intervention had not been carried out.
