Why – Under Tile Heating ? (Short Version) http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/why-under-tile-heating-short-version/ http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/why-under-tile-heating-short-version/#respond Wed, 13 Jan 2016 13:25:38 +0000 http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/?p=2870 Underfloor Heating as part of your tiling project

Tiler in Manchester, under tile heating.

If you watch any home improvement TV shows you will often see that as part of a new build or renovation project that people choose underfloor heating.

Why?

For starters it is more comfortable, conventional heating with wall mounted radiators create draughts – that is how they are designed to work by circulating cold air in at the floor level, heating it and the heated air naturally rising to the ceiling. Eventually the entire room warms up, but until that happens the room can feel draughty as the air moves around in a big circle.With underfloor heating, the entire floor operates like a lower temperature radiator element.

Underfloor heating also saves space, no wall mounted radiators means more flexibility with room layout, where you position furniture etc.

Finally, underfloor heating is safer, unlike radiators that run hot, underfloor heating is warm, so no risk of scolding for the elderly or young children.

Which system – a quick summary

There are 2 main types of system. ‘Wet’, which comprises pipes running under the flooring surface, with warm water being pumped through them, or ‘dry’ , which consists of electrical wires being run under the flooring surface.

There is no such thing as ‘best’, as best will depend on what is most important for you and your installation. I

f you haven’t gone time to read all the details and just want a simple summary, then for bathroom renovation projects dry (electrical) underfloor heating usually has the most advantages, whereas for large, new build projects then wet systems make the most sense.

New (Old) Company Vehicle !!! http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/new-company-vehicle/ http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/new-company-vehicle/#respond Sun, 02 Nov 2014 17:40:43 +0000 http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/?p=2670 This is our new Tiler Manchester Moggy van !!!! Our old Moggy was a little under the weather after 4 years in service with us so we thought that we would invest in another, and this eye catching Yellow van was brought to my attention.  This is an original GPO Morris Minor Van dating back to 1970 which my father has rebuilt for us.  Tilers in Manchester travel all over the UK in this beauty.

We at Andy Carroll & Son Tiling Limited, professional tilers Manchester can’t go anywhere without the friendly Policeman pulling us over !!!! wanting to have a chat !!!! The old gentleman taking stock and looking at his past in front of him and even the younger generation point in amazement.

A Guide to Tiling in Victorian Style http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/a-guide-to-tiling-in-victorian-style/ http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/a-guide-to-tiling-in-victorian-style/#respond Thu, 20 Feb 2014 14:00:54 +0000 http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/?p=2544 Victorian Tiling

Opulence, romance and excess; these are the main features of the Victorian style that has long been a favourite of designers and DIYers looking to add a dash of class to their interior spaces. Today it remains as popular as ever, and there’s even something of a revival movement going on, combining the style’s characteristic opulence with some of the minimalism of more modern designs.

Tiling on both the wall and floor has long been a hallmark of the Victorian tradition, with elaborate patterned tiles being used to create alluring feature sections, or brightly-coloured flooring helping to produce the style’s characteristic flamboyance. It’s something that tends to sit well with the utilitarian nature of Victorianism too; easyto clean and simple to maintain.

In the hallway, black and white checked patterns have proved to be a favourite classic with many homeowners looking to imitate the traditional Victorian look, while interwoven designs and the simpler red quarry ranges are also a popular choice. Victorian hallway tiles have also been favoured for their durable nature and ease of maintenance, providing homeowners – both modern and Victorian – with an easy-to-clean surface that lasts once it’s down.

Decorative borders and patterned tiles are also used in the kitchen and bathroom, and are becoming a mainstream choice for splash backs and feature sections. If you’re thinking about emulating the Victorian style in this way, consider opting for a porcelain range, which will generally offer more water resistance than ceramic tiles, making it better suited to high-traffic and consistently wet areas.

Today there are a great number of classic buildings across the UK that stand as testimony to the enduring character of the Victorian style, its distinct architectural nuances and interior design charm. In London for example, the St. Pancras railway station oozes with gothic revivalism from the 1860s, while the tiled interior of Manchester’s Great Town Hall still rings of both elegance and utilitarianism; a wonder for any modern Manchester tiler to behold!

Not the 1st time, Not the 2nd time but the 3rd time ……. http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/not-the-1st-time-not-the-2nd-time-but-the-3rd-time/ http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/not-the-1st-time-not-the-2nd-time-but-the-3rd-time/#respond Sat, 23 Nov 2013 15:38:36 +0000 http://www.andycarrolltiling.com/?p=2502 “Yet another job well done by Andy Carroll & Son Tiling Limited”

Recently completed work at a customers home in Northwich, well here goes !

First tiler – recommended from a tile shop – You would have thought that the shop would have at least recommended a “good tiler” and vetted their previous work, well you know what thought did !!

Second attempt – tiler recommended by a so called “tradesman type website” well even that you would have thought would be a decent enough tiler……well you know what thought did !!!

We at tiler in manchester always recommend to our customers to always take a look a previous work done before hiring anyone because the old saying is true……you are only as good as your last job.

I was the “third attempt” here goes……….see review below “WOW”

I am not an easy customer to please and after two failed attempts at tiling my bathroom by cowboy builders, I am so pleased I asked Andy and Andrew to take on the job. 
They assessed the problem wall in great detail and explained the various problems that could arise from completing the repairs so that there were no more unpleasant surprises, and then managed to fit in the work with their busy schedule in record time. 
The quality of work produced is something rarely seen these days. Andy takes great pride in his work and doesn’t rush just to get the job done. It has to be finished to a high standard and he has every right to be proud of his reputation as his finish is flawless. I was amazed by how clean and tidy they left the bathroom, again, something rarely seen by tradesmen these days! Andy knows his stuff and offers sound advice. I will not hesitate to use Andy Carroll and Son Tiling Ltd again. In fact, I won’t be using any other tiler from now on. I’d rather wait until the job can be done properly, first time, by Andy and Andrew. –

Sharon @ Northwich

Thank you Sharon
