Tiling talents: Tilemax has the range and customer service to get your project sorted

When it comes to current tile trends, bigger is definitely better. With an extensive range of large, rectangular tiles for both floors and walls, Tilemax has a team of experts – whether you’re building a new home or renovating your kitchen or bathroom.


Dimensions vary from the most on-trend size of 45x90cm, as well as 30x90cm and 40x120cm, in porcelain for floors and walls, and in ceramic for walls only. “Many of the styles have different texture and surface interest and others have a look reminiscent of marble, stone, cement – as well as plain white glossy finishes,” says Toni Harrison, of Tilemax Christchurch.
The Verona range features a linear directional pattern, with nice variation and movement, giving it a natural feel and look. Available in both matte and polished finishes, the tile is great for all interior designs and creates a spacious, natural looking area. The Spanish-designed Concert range – a high quality porcelain – incorporates NeoTech technology and can be used in living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, external cladding and many more spaces.
The Stellar range is a stunning soft stone-style porcelain floor and wall tile. The surface of the tile has been produced and machined to provide a beautiful feel under foot, like the feel of the worn and natural patina of stone. Catering to both residential and commercial customers, Tilemax has extensive experience in selecting the best value tiles, best design and range from around the world.

A functional extension: adding to your home is one of Stratco’s specialty

Creating a striking addition to enhance your home, a veranda not only adds functional living space and value, but protection from the elements.

Whether you are building a new home or making extensions, the team at Stratco has the skills and expertise to assist from design to installation, with its own range of unique Stratco verandas and louvres. “Our fixed-roof verandas offer an affordable alternative to our louvres,” says Stratco General Manager, David Allingham.
“It’s a proven product with quality design – they’ve been around for years and there is no other product like this on the market.”
Letting light into your outdoor area while blocking out harmful rays and rain, homeowners can get so much more function from their home – an added value the real estate industry is well aware of. The company offers a bespoke veranda at the same price as a standard product, which can easily be custom-designed to suit your size, layout and attachment requirements.
The process is simple. Steve Cain, Outdoor Product Specialist at Stratco, will talk through the possibilities with you, then measure and quote, which is free with no obligation. Stratco then designs, manufactures and installs the verandas and louvres – making the entire experience hassle-free.
