We are pretty darn lucky to be surrounded by building industry leaders in North Canterbury, many of whom we deal with on a daily basis. We thought it was about time to put the spotlight on those local suppliers creating some decor and installation magic.
We're kicking off with a Q & A session with Jess and Lance McEwan at Waimak Tiling Ltd. Waimak Tiling are one of our top installers. They're reliable and organised, with a high standard of finishing every time.
How long have you been tiling?
Lance has 15 Years under his belt, and within the Waimak Tiling team there's over 40 years of combined experience!
Have you always been in North Canterbury?
We are born and bred North Canterbrians!
Where are you based?
We live and run Waimak Tiling in Rangiora, North Canterbury.
What's your favourite tile look currently? We're loving any of the distressed or vintage looking patterned tiles.
What is a top trend you're seeing in North Canterbury Homes? There's a huge amount of installs happening with large module tiles, i.e. 900mm long tiles. This is a trend coming out of Europe and we've noticed it's starting to take off here.
What is your biggest tile don't? Dont tile naked (kidding! But don't). Our best advice is probably not to DIY. We've never seen it end well and we usually get called to pick up the pieces (literally).
What's your biggest piece of advice to anyone needing tiles? Dont be scared! There are so many beautiful tiles out there now - get creative!
