Ace Tiling Limited and UltraTile have partnered together to repair a water damaged floor at a romantic wedding venue in Northamptonshire.
Located in Northamptonshire, Dodmoor House is an award-winning wedding venue. Twice named “Countryside Wedding Venue of the Year”, Dodmoor House organises over 100 weddings a year at the 400-year-old converted barns.
A failure in the external drainage gulley had resulted in water seeping through the wall and damaging the wooden floor in the main reception area of the stunning wedding venue. The existing wooden floor and skirting board needed to be removed and the substrate ground down to remove high spots. This uncovered several minor stress cracks which required repair before levelling could commence.
Ace Tiling Limited had an extremely small window to complete the 85sqm installation. With weddings already booked on either side of the installation window, the team had to get the job done on time, ready for the next happy couple to say “I do”.
Ace Tiling Limited used various UltraTile materials to fix the 1200x200x10mm porcelain wood-effect plank floor tiles. To prepare the substrate for tiling, UltraFloor Level IT Renovate semi-rapid fibre reinforced smoothing underlayment was poured over the entire area to create a smooth finish for dancing wedding guests.
UltraTile ProPrimer advanced polymer primer was then applied to the area before Durabase matting was rolled out and fixed with UltraTile ProFlex SP rapid set flexible tile adhesive.
Once the wood-effect tiles had been fixed with UltraTile ProGrip FX, the skirting boards were refitted and finished off with colour matching perimeter silicone and movement joints where required.
For an extra finishing flourish, Ace Tiling Limited used UltraTile ProClean Grout Aid to eliminate unwanted grout hazing.
With the combination of Ace Tiling Limited’s knowledge and skills and UltraTile’s products, the job completed one day ahead of schedule.
Sam Iland, owner of Ace Tiling Limited said: “We specify UltraTile on all our jobs where possible. The products are user friendly and we have the utmost confidence in their performance. This, combined with the good relationship with Martin and Josh who helped with the spec, and the support and training that UltraTile are giving us through Tilers Community is a no brainer for me!
“Both we, and the client are delighted with the outcome. We had a strict timeframe to work to but we got the job done.”
