Pre-Sealed Tile Shop

We now offer pre-sealed terracotta floor tiles which you can purchase below. This means that the installation of our terracotta tiles is much easier and quicker, and can save you both time and money. This means that you only have to lay and grout the tiles, saving three to five days in waiting for the floor to be sealed, dried and finished. The cost for this service is £10 per m2 for double boiled linseed oil, and £15 per m2 for Sadolin floor varnish or LTP Mattstone, all of which are UK made sealants.

Customers should note that we have tried every product on the market, and these three solutions are by far the best for handmade clay / terracotta floor tiles. The classic finish of linseed oil followed by a hard wax or oil is still an excellent solution, but there are other alternatives such as Sadolin and synthetic sealants which offer a different finish.

Traditional Sealing Service

Using UK made double boiled linseed oil, we give the tiles six coatings with a professional sponge applicator, which gives them a comprehensive pre- seal. This also makes it much easier to clean the tiles when grouting, and gives good protection against water and any other liquids or dirt. You should note that linseed oil will darken the tiles by around 20%. Once the floor is laid and grouted, you can then use a satin or gloss hard wax like Osmo Polyx Oil for the final finish. There are also other clear or antique waxes which can be buffed into the surface. This traditional method of sealing terracotta tiles gives the floor a classic and more antique look, and Osmo Polyx oil is excellent at bringing out the antique character of the tiles.

Modern Sealing Service

Using Sadolin satin floor varnish (which gives a nice sheen to the floor), or LTP Mattstone (which water and stain proofs the floor), we offer two excellent modern sealing solutions :

1. Sadolin floor varnish : we give the tiles four coats, which leaves a subtle sheen on the floor and a very hard multi layered protective coating on top of the tiles. This finish makes it much easier to clean the grout off the tiles, and long term maintenance is easy.

2. LTP Mattstone : we give the tiles four coats, which makes them 100% waterproof and stain proof. Ideal if you want to keep the original look of the tiles, as this finish will not darken the tiles.
