“Peace of Mind” Fixed Pricing
Our technician aims to deliver a quality professional finish that looks good and is watertight, and this requires skill and patience. In addition we only use the best quality silicone sealants that contain “Microban”, “Mould Shield”, or “SteriTouch” anti microbial properties for prolonged life; these are more expensive than cheap substitutes that other tradesmen may use. We strive to deliver the best possible value, with a prompt and reliable service, so you can be confident that booking with us will give you total peace of mind.

Preparation and Post Resealing:– in order to ensure a good seal when resealing, all surfaces need to be completely clean and dry.

* Our prices include the removal of the old silicone
* Verticals:-This price does not include “tile to tile” vertical uprights, these are charged at £8.75 per upright up to 2mtrs in length (sculpted or relief style tiles, and/or smaller than non standard sized tiles £10.75 per upright) for sealant removal & replacement. Also, “tile to metal” vertical uprights are charged at £10 per upright up to 2mtrs in length (sculpted or relief style tiles, and/or smaller than non standard sized tiles** £12.75 per upright).
* Standard Installation Labour is based upon an installation that has been correctly installed, and does not have a beading style trim/strip between the tiles and tray/bath and a gap no larger than 6mm between the tiles (or wet wall or similar finish) and tray/bath. Grout between the tiles and tray/bath may require to be removed and if this is case then the installation would be deemed “non standard”.
Sub standard or non Standard Installations that have been been adapted to take account of uneven walls, and floors can result in extra time being required, as well as requiring additional silicone sealant. Also, where silicone or an incorrect sealant material has been applied by an amateur (i.e. sealant all over the tiles and fittings, or the wrong type of sealant which can be difficult to remove) can take considerably more time to remove and prepare the job. These types of jobs will incur an additional hourly rate of £35 for every hour, or part hour taken.
** Standard Tiles: minimum size must be no less than 15 cms square and the surface must be glazed and with a smooth flat polished shiny finish over the entire tile – tiles with bevelled edges are classed as “Non Standard” . “Non Standard Tiles” are tiles with a natural stone effect, mosaics or uneven surfaces, or any tiles not as per the “Standard Tiles” description. These take longer to prepare and apply silicone, and incur an additional charge of 50% of the standard charges). Uneven tiles will most likely result in an uneven finish due to the nature of the tiles – this is unavoidable and an uneven finish is considered normal.
** Beading Style Trim and/or relief style tiles borders, or tiles smaller than 15cms square or 6″ square (but not including mosaics see below), will incur additional charges due to the extra work required in preparation; these charges are an additional 50% each of the standard charge.
**Mosaic Tiles: please add 50% to the standard charge due to the extra work and time involved in cleaning each individual tile.
***Worktops: prices may vary if there are mosaic sized tiles, or where a gap exists between the worktop, tiles and wall, that requires to be packed before sealing. In this instance the charge will be £79 for the first hour, subsequent hours at £35 per hour, plus materials.
Dark Coloured Tiles & Coloured sealants (other than white or clear will incur higher material charges). Dark coloured sealants when required to be applied to light coloured tiles with white grout will incur up to a 50% additional charge (similarly white sealant against a dark background). The reason for the additional charges is that it requires a lot more time to apply, in order to obtain a good finish.
Grout Cleaning – grout cleaning prices start from £35 + cost of chemicals, wipes etc. when done in conjunction with other work, otherwise the cost is from £79 + cost of chemicals, wipes etc.
Grout Removal and Replacement – grout removal and replacement prices start from £35 + cost of materials when done in conjunction with other work, otherwise the cost is from £79 + cost of materials.
