Barefoot Floors Co-Owner Lynn Rathbone travelled to Brisbane with Steve recently to help quote on a job where plenty of drummy tiles were found!
Who could imagine that working on a Sunday, namely Fathers Day could be a pleasure?
Today Steve and I are in Brisbane doing a series of Tile Injection quotes around the Brisbane area.
We met 2 lovely ladies at one job as Steve inspected the tiles in their house, which have gone 'drummy'.
It's a small world- these ladies grew up in Bundaberg, where Barefoot Floors of course was founded and where we both live!
Steve was inspecting the floor and I was talking to the owner, and during the course of conversation we talked about how it is that tiles 'let go'.
Steve came back into the conversation- (yes, he managed to 'get a word in'!) and explained that often tiles started to 'creep' from the outside in, after one or two tiles originally start to de-laminate from the floor substrate. One drummy or loose tile can quickly start a chain reaction that can lead to the entire floor coming loose!
Our host quite rightly pointed out that 'A stitch in time, saves Nine'.
Steve went on to say that if one can deal with the small areas of drummy tiles early- a larger, more expensive job can be avoided.
Luckily for our hosts, despite the widespread damage, the tile injection procedure is extremely non-invasive. No furniture needs to be moved and no one needs to leave the house!
Steve walked the client through the process of restoring the tiles using the re-glue method, including inserting new expansion joints if required and repairing the de-laminated tiles in a quick, one-step application. Once the tile injection process is complete the client will have clean, solid tiled floor without the need to rip up and replace any of her original tiles!
