Your Trades persons
Our staff are all experienced tradespersons with many years of industry experience between them.  They strive to achieve a high standard of professionalism, prioritizing their standard of work over speed.   While they will both work as hard and fast as they can for you, they believe that in the long run you will appreciate extra effort taken to achieve that high quality finish.
Adrian has been both tiling and installing logfires for twelve years however previously has a background of 26 years as an aircraft engineer which has given him an eye for detail and a variety of skills that not many have the knowledge of or ability to apply.   He has also built his own home along with project management of another and has gained both training and experience in many other aspects of building along the way.
Our staff, where appropriate, hold industry standard training in their specific areas of expertise and all experienced tradesmen, and all hold valid “Site Safe” passports.  Where applicable they also have been harness trained and certified for working at heights.
Materials
We use high quality products that have been proven over the years.    Our tile adhesive is a flexible adhesive that has been approved for use with Protectowrap waterproofing and has a proven track record.  We have seen too many tile adhesives fail after approximately 5 years because of the use of low grade, cheap adhesives used by many tilers to cut costs.
Warm-Up Under Tile Heating
Adrian is a trained and approved installer of this product and able to offer a product warranty and installation guarantee.  Warm-Up is a highly respected brand that has been around in New Zealand for many years and is proven to last.    We recommend this system to clients first for this reason however due to cost we understand if you would prefer to consider other systems.  Please ask our advice on this.
Waterproofing and Tanking
We use the Protectowrap AFM (AntiFracture Membrane) system.    ProtectoWrap products have been manufactured in the USA for over 50 years where they have built a sound reputation for producing the highest quality waterproofing membrane products on the market today.  They are BRANZ appraised and recommended.   Adrian’s Tiling are certified installers for this quality product and offer both a product guarantee and producer statement for tanking and waterproofing work and our staff are trained and experienced applicators.
Grout Sealing
We do not include this as standard however should you require this please let us know and it can be quoted separately or we can supply and instruct you how to apply this.    It is a personal choice and by no means a tiling requirement.
