A range of Mapei systems have been used to complete an extension at Allingtons’ car dealership in Ashington. The project – carried out by Ian Costello Tiling – featured porcelain tile finishes and formed part of an extension of the existing showroom by Northern Structures Limited.
A family run dealership established in 1948, Allingtons is home to Kia, Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall in Northumberland. Its extended showroom provides an additional 450m2 of floor space for Allington’s extensive range of new and used vehicles.
During Costello Tiling’s installation, surfaces were prepared with Ultraplan Renovation Screed 3240 - a fibre reinforced self levelling compound – and waterproofing, uncoupling and anti-fracture membrane, Mapeguard UM 35 was installed throughout the floor area. Two deformable cementitious adhesives were used to install tiles: Keraquick S1 – a quick-setting, very low VOC formulation – and one-component, lightweight adhesive, Ultralite S2. The installation was completed with anti-efflorescence, quick-setting and drying polymer-modified grout – Ultracolor Plus – which features water-repellent DropEffect® and mould-resistant BioBlock® technologies.
