Tile Laying Works

Tile laying works refer to a series of tasks to be performed in a proper sequence in order to lay the tiles on the surfaces of a wall or floor. Checks are conducted to see whether there is any unintended colour/shade variation within the tiles. We also check whether the adhesive to be used is compatible with the background/base of the wall/floor. Tiles would be cut neatly and accurately subject to the approval of the architect of our customers, and would be fixed so that there is adhesion over the whole of the background/base of the wall/ floor and the back of the tiles. Before applying bedding material sets, proper adjustment may be made to give true, regular appearance to tiles and joints when viewed under final lightning conditions. After placing the bedding material, we would clean the surplus bedding material from joints and face of tiles without disturbing tiles.

Brick laying works

Brick laying works refer to a series of tasks to be performed in a proper sequence in order to lay the blocks in position on the wall row by row to establish a proper spacing of blocks. Mortar is first laid for full bed width and blocks are then being laid one at a time by gently pressing them into the mortar bed. A line thread would be used with a line pin from one end to the other end. Checks are then conducted to ensure that all blocks are plumb, square and properly bonded. We also check that all joints are moulded and that excess mortar coming out on the edge are buttered to the cross directional joint or the head joint surface of the next block to be laid. We would normally close the bond, locate it near the centre of the wall and butter both edges of the closure block with mortar before laying the last closure block in the row.

Plastering works

Plastering works refer to the process of working with plaster. Before applying the plaster on a wall surface, our workers or subcontractors would ensure that the wall surface is clean and free from dust, and any loose part of mortar/ plaster from brick laying process. Water would be sprinkled over the wall surface to ensure better sticking of the plaster. We then mix appropriate amount and ratio of base plaster and water by drum mixers or plaster spraying machines. Our workers or subcontractors would use plaster trowel to scoop an amount of plaster which could be held by the plaster hawk or directly use the plaster spraying machine to spray the plaster on the wall. When the wall surface is full of plaster, our workers or subcontractors use nice and smooth strokes with the trowel and press onto the wall in order to spread the plaster evenly over the surface. By applying the pressure on the plaster towards different directions, the wall would be fully and equally covered with the plaster. Wall corners should be the last to be pressed.

Floor screeding works

Floor screeding works refer to the application of a well-blended mixture of cement with graded aggregates and water to a floor base in order to form a sturdy sub-floor for the completion of the final floor. If there is pipe-work in the screed, we would ensure that there is a layer of mortar with at least 2.5cm thick above it and we would reinforce the thinner section to prevent the formation of cracks by bridging the metallic reinforcement mesh made 2 mm diameter wire over the pipe-work. To improve the resistance to cracking, we would also position a zinc-plated metallic reinforcement mesh at the mid-point of the screed in order to limit the amount of shrinkage cracks. Floor screeding works are finished by hand with a float and the surface of the screed is then suitable for installing ceramic or stone flooring.

Marble works

Marble works refer to the laying of marble tiles to the floor. An inspection of the marble tiles would be carried out by us to ensure that there are no cracks or gaps in the polished surface of the tiles. Floor surface is levelled before laying the marble tiles. We would also mark the grid on the floor to indicate where the marble tiles would be laid. The marble tiles would then be placed according to the pattern in the grid and a layer of adhesive would be applied using a notched towel. We would then lay the marble tiles firmly on top of the adhesive within ten minutes after the adhesive is applied. We would position the marble tiles in place using spacers and cut the marble tiles to fit in the edges along the walls using a wet saw in order to minimise the risk of marble tiles breaking when they are being cut. The process is repeated until all the specially sized marble tiles are cut and placed into the adhesive. Any excess adhesive between the marble tiles is then removed and the marble tiles are left undisturbed for at least 24 hours for the adhesive to dry. We would then seal the marble tiles and fill the spaces between the marble tiles with mortar.
