Trusted installers available via TTA’s enhanced website directory

Tiles are a resilient, flexible and affordable option for floorcoverings which can be sourced and installed with the support of The Tile Association’s (TTA) website directory. This year, TTA launched a new website with an improved directory, making it easier to find a tiler, showroom, product or service that you can trust.

Ceramic tiles are an excellent choice for their durability – they are fireproof, waterproof and scratch resistant. This makes them ideal for kitchen and bathroom environments. Tiles do not wear as quickly as wood, laminate and vinyl flooring.

Thanks to their effective thermal mass properties, tiles are good for comfort living, wellness and reduced energy costs. They absorb, hold and release heat gradually, unlike insulating materials. This slow, efficient distribution of heat makes them particularly suited to underfloor heating (UFH) systems.

Tiles are safe and hygienic, made from naturally occurring raw materials which are non-toxic both during and after use. They are also easy to maintain and clean.

With a lifetime of durability*, tiles are a sustainable and lasting option for flooring. Beyond their lifespan, tiles can be fully recycled and turned into F6 aggregate for the building and roadworks industry, extending their positive sustainability impact – which is increasingly important as the flooring industry transitions to a circular economy.

TTA members are equipped to deliver high-quality products and services for specifiers and main contractors. Delivering the latest technical support and guidance, TTA encourages best practices to British Standards. In fact, TTA members don’t just meet the tiling standards, they help to set them.
Martin Pouncey, TTA technical & training manager, says: ‘The Tile Association aims to raise tile and tiling standards and enhance installation expertise and craftsmanship. Our members are vetted and primed to deliver high-quality products and services. Using our website directory makes it simple to find tile installers nearest to you.

‘In addition, Master Tile Fixers included in the directory are highly skilled and experienced independent tile fixers, which may be exactly what your next project needs. Over the past year, the Master Tile Fixer certification scheme has helped to recognise tiling excellence and encourage other tile installers to strive for this standard.’
*The reference service life for ceramic tiles is 60 years. Refer to the 2023 Ceramic Tile Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) independently assessed and published by The Confindustria Ceramica, Italy
