These are before and after shots of a bathroom that had a full refurbishment done. This job took the specialists 3.5 days.
Here is a breakdown of all the work that was done:
The tilers removed all old tiles from the walls and floor, as well as the toilet, sink and bath panel. After, they prepared all the surfaces for tiling – removing old tile adhesive, skimming and plastering where needed.
The specialists cut out a bath panel and mounted it to the frame. Then, they proceeded to tile the walls, floor and panel.
All the spaces between the tiles were grouted. The tilers then put the toilet, sink and taps back in.
On the last day, the professionals applied silicone around the bath and sink edges. After all the hard work had finished, they cleaned up any mess and left the bathroom looking brand new and sparkling clean.
The total price for this service would be £1450, with the materials being supplied by the customer. The cost of labour is £1200, with waste removal being £250.
