Tiling On The Water
Natural Stone Back Splash, Roslyn NY
Replacing The Lead Pan, Whitestone NY
Long Kitchen Back Splash Using 3″ x 6″ Marble Subway Tiles, Brooklyn NY
Convert From Small To Larger Shower Area – Brooklyn NY
We eliminated a small shower and bath tub in the bedroom bathroom and installed a larger shower area. We installed a tiled niche with glass accent tiles as a trim, and black octagon floor tiles. We had to install a granite top and side of the outside wall in the shower to prevent water from going outside the shower area. We used a 2 inch by 7 inch long white ceramic tile with the subway brick pattern. A glass accent tile was use just to bring out the beauty of this new bathroom shower area.
New Bathroom And Tiled Floor – Broad Channel NY
Broad Channel is located between Rockaway and Howard Beach. This area was also victimized by super storm Sandy. Four feet of the plasterboard walls had to be removed. The bathroom was gutted and the existing floor tiles were damaged and had to be removed due to prior poor installation. We installed new tiles in the bathroom and 330 square feet of floor tiles. See the results for yourself.
Mud Job Walk-In Level – Howard Beach NY
Super storm “Sandy” came into Howard Beach NY and flooded many low areas of Howard Beach. If you have a walk-in basement and you live in Howard Beach, you had a flood anywhere from six inches to six feet of water. Basements were gutted literally to bare walls and the streets were littered with mountains of damage basement contents. This basement was raised from the cement floor with wood studs and plywood. All the wood had to be ripped out and a mud job had to be added to the existing cement floor to level the difference of 2 1/2 inches from one end to the other.
The pictures will show a mud job and porcelains tiles installed to give the basement a wood floor look. Look carefully to see if it wood or tiles. Needless to say there are two home owners in Howard Beach who has the best looking basement in the area. Look at the pictures for yourself.
New Bathroom Replacement – Howard Beach NY
The bathroom we found was constructed after World War Two utilizing the old “mud job” procedures of building a bathroom. The walls were plaster, uneven and not leveled. The back wall of the bathroom had a metal wall vent that is used as an exhaust vent, very ugly and painted pink. The tiles were 4″ x 4″, pink with black wall caps. We removed all the tiles, removed the mildew walls and repaired the walls with cement. We then went to work like a doctor operating on a sick patient. The pictures will show the new bathroom with a custom made (by us) exhaust vent made from a ceramic tile. That is the difference between Tile Repair Specialists and someone who thinks they can do tiles every now and then!
Bathroom Repaired – Middle Village NY
The owner made it clear; “I don’t want to spend a lot of money for a new bathroom repair”. And she did not. We used the same tub, toilet, vanity, and sheet rock walls outside the bathtub area. We removed the water damaged wooden floor and walls around the bathtub area and replaced them with new 1/2 inch cement backer-boards, floor and walls. The ceramic tiles size 12″ x 8″ were installed using the brick-look effect. This gave the bathroom a much needed new look. The old exhaust fan was replaced along with a new one handler shower body. The old ceramic toilet paper holder was replaced with a new chrome holder. Matching plastic tile trim was installed all around the bathroom to give the ceramic tiles a finishing look. Matching ceramic floor tiles size 13″ x 13″ were installed giving this bathroom the “new face lift” it badly needed!
Kitchen Floor Tile – Staten Island NY
The kitchen wood floor ( 180 square feet) was exposed before any installation was performed. We installed 13 (3′ x 5′) cement backer-boards 1/2/ inch thick over the wooden floors using 1 1/4 inch long screws made especially for this cement board. The porcelain floor tiles (3/8 inch thick) has a non-slip ruff surface and is very durable for this heavy traffic area. A 4 inch wide porcelain tile was installed as a boarder all around the kitchen walls giving a rich looking finish for this kitchen tile floor. A wooden trim was installed over the porcelain tiles separating the living room wooden floor from the kitchen porcelain tile floor.
New Bathroom – Howard Beach NY
The old bathroom had a yellow tub, and yellow wall and floor ceramic tiles. Everything was removed including the wooden window. The bathroom floor was a little weak so we installed 2/3 inch thick plywood over the existing bathroom floor. After the new tub was installed, 1/2 inch thick cement backer board was installed all round the bath tub area including the ceiling. Plastic molding was installed around the vinyl window to prevent any molding or the window rotting away. One row of a ceramic tile trim was installed all around the ceramic tile walls to beautify the bathroom look. Plastic tile trim was used to hide the ceramic tile edge for all outside corners. New closet and entrance doors, mirror medicine cabinet, bathroom lights and electrical outlets were all installed making this new bathroom a welcome sight for this old house.
Kitchen Back Splash – Howard Beach NY
Black tiles size 2″ x 2″ (From a mesh 12″ x 12″) were installed using glass mosaic tiles, size 1″ x 1″ as a trim. Metal tile trim was installed in the two corners that stick out to protect the corners and the tiles themselves. The glass mosaic tiles gave this kitchen back splash a rich and exciting look to it.
Bathroom Tiles – Rockaways NY
Porcelain tiles size 12″ x 8″ were installed 5 1/2 rows brick style, 2 rows of mosaic 2″ x 2″ tiles, and 4 rows of the porcelain tile installed up-right. Two marble shelved were installed inside the shower area. The mosaic tiles run around the bathroom walls which gave this bathroom a rich, cozy , warm look to it.
Kitchen Tiles – So. Ozone Park NY
Installing porcelain tiles size 4″ x 4″ made this tile repair job look and feel warmer and more inviting when you entered the kitchen area. The lighter color of the porcelain tiles matched the darker color of the cabinets giving it a light and dark contrast. As you can see in these before and after pictures, the porcelain tiles made a big difference in upgrading the kitchen area.
Floor Tiles – Rockaways NY
After completing the tile repair job in the bathroom (see pictures below) the home owners wanted something different, beautiful, and exciting in the hallway floors. This ceramic tile floor has the look of wooden floors but has a shine that will outlast any wooden floor shine.
Bathroom Tiles – Rockaways NY
This bathroom had plain sheet rock walls, no tiles, and a fiberglass bathroom stall. The home owner wanted to transform this bathroom into a work of art. I believe we accomplish this task. This tile repair job included ceramic wall tiles and color glass mosaic tile trim that ran all around the walls.
Bathroom Tiles – Old Howard Beach NY
This was the smallest bathroom (6′ x 4′, shower 32″ x 36″) we ever had a tile repair job. We removed the old mud job bathroom tiles which saved us a few inches all around the walls. We installed ceramic wall tiles, two ceramic shelves, a soap dish and ceramic floor shower tiles. The home owners were very pleased with the outcome of this bathroom.
All types of tile-repairs and new tile installation (porcelain, glass, ceramic, marble, metal and granite tiles) for bathrooms, floors, and kitchen back-splashes. We also repair kitchen granite tops on location.
