Floors are expensive things. Whether you lay carpet, install hardwood planks or have stunning granite or stone put down, floors make up a huge part of the investment that is your home. The last thing you want is to see your precious investment covered in stains and to have difficulty cleaning it.
Stone and tile must have a mandatory treatment with a tile sealer to ensure they remain as pristine as possible for the long term.
Aqua Mix tile sealer is a premium product that provides maximum protection against stains on stone, tile and grout. It gives a no-sheen, natural looking result and is a water-based sealer that penetrates the surface giving it long-term protection from a range of stains.

Gone are the days of limited choices for your ceramic tile tub surround. We don’t just want to get clean in the bath, we want to enjoy the whole experience of it. Having a beautiful bathroom is as much about the tile and the bath tub as the color of the towels you hang or the view from the window. Think outside the square and go crazy with color, murals and mosaics.
Instead of relenting and choosing boring monochrome colors for your bathroom, think in terms of the range of tile accessories that are available to us nowadays. Visit any tile showroom and you’ll see magical displays of wall and floor tiles that you may not have known existed. You can have your very own bathroom mural if you want!

Even for the occupants, a ratty old porch can make home sweet home far less sweet.
Stand out on the street and take a good long look at your porch. Is the porch roof hanging crookedly or sagging? Are the steps in danger of collapsing beneath someone’s feet? Do the railings look like they wouldn’t stand up to anyone leaning on them?
