Ceramic wall and floor tiles are available in a wide range of colours, patterns and designs. They come in a range of finishes, matt, glossy and semi-glossy.
Ceramic tiles are an ideal wall and floor covering for hallways, kitchens and bathrooms.
They are also resistant to boiling liquids, fire, heat, sunlight and frost. Ceramic tiles are long-lasting, durable and resistant to mould, bacteria, and fungus.
Benefits of tiles
A problem typical of older Irish houses is increasing heating costs.
Insulation was not a priority years ago and efficient thermal insulation materials were not as easily available as they are today. DRY LINEING is a modern technique that has been developed to eliminate drafts and ensure comfortable internal conditions.

Plasterboard as an interior finish is fire-resistant, non-toxic and acts as a sound barrier.
It is less labour-intensive than wet plastering. It takes tiles, paint and wallpaper easily.
Plasterboard can be used to create a partition or non load-bearing wall in a room, typically over a wooden frame.
Windows and doors can be included, as can electrical fittings.

High-quality taping and jointing prepares plasterboard for painting and decoration by creating a smooth finish.
Taping and jointing is the process of covering and reinforcing the seams between plasterboard to prepare a wall for decoration.
Joint tape is used to cover the gaps between the plaster and is covered with jointing compound to strengthen the joints and prevent cracks from appearing.

There is a basic rule of thumb to follow when choosing paint sheens: The higher the sheen,
the higher the shine -- and the higher the shine, the more durable it will be.
Flat paint has no shine; high-gloss is all shine. In between are eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss, each with its own practical and decorative job to do.
