We have over 20 years of experience in this field, whilst all of our work is fully insured and guaranteed. Whether you wish to tile an entire room or only need small scale work carried out, our experienced tradesmen can do the job for you at very competitive prices.

Choosing tiles can be tedious work, depending on the size of the room and shape can affect which size and colour would look best. Smaller areas are most suited to lighter, larger tiles to create the illusion of a more open, bright space. Larger areas can afford to have darker colour tiles, for example black. Of course, these are just suggestions and all choices depend on the preference of our clients.

bathroom tilingEssex Property Maintenance offers a wide range of tiles which are becoming increasingly popular to have in the home. Floor tiles can be a great alternative to carpet which is easily stained and worn; keeping cool under foot in the summer months and warm in the winter (should you choose to have an under floor heating system installed). Rugs can also be thrown over tiles in the colder months acting as a great alternative to permanent carpet.

Essex Property Maintenance offers a range of different material tiles such as, ceramic, porcelain, quarry and glass. We can advise you on which tiles are perfect for your property.
