Installation work

Our experienced tilers are real masters of their art. Working to the highest standards of craftsmanship, they install wall and floor tiles made of ceramic material as well as natural and artificial stone in both indoor and outdoor areas.

Refurbishment and rebuilding

More and more refurbishment work is being undertaken in buildings while people are still living in them. To assist you with your planning, we operate flexibly; our work is clean and emission-free as far as possible, and we show consideration for the building’s occupants. We can draw on our lengthy experience of planning and execution to implement even the smallest details with the greatest care. We will be glad to handle your project right from the start through to final acceptance, with follow-up support based on our expertise – so you can rest assured that everything will go smoothly.

Industrial, commercial and public buildings

As part of the planning phase, we discuss the functional aspects of the tiling with the customer, and we select the most suitable materials together. Large-scale kitchens, laboratories, swimming pools or shower facilities: wherever high usage levels or chemical substances place extreme demands on tiled surfaces, the key characteristics needed are non-slip properties, electrical conductivity, resistance to acids and watertightness.

Private properties

Fancy some new tiles in the bathroom, or custom-designed floor tiling in the kitchen? We’ll take the greatest of care to give your home that very special personal touch! We also carry out small masonry and plastering jobs. Our service is customer friendly and professional – we will fulfil your wishes, whether or not you engage an architect.

Grout joints

Mouldy or leaking silicone joints?

Silicone joints (sometimes called grouting or grout joints) are essential to ensure protection against moisture and sound transmission. They are exposed to strong chemical and/or physical influences, so they must be inspected regularly and renewed when necessary. We will be glad to carry out this work for you.

Maintenance and repair work

Faulty tiles don’t just look bad!

Moisture can penetrate through cracks in the tile and is often responsible for more deep-seated problems such as mould, mildew or leaks in the surface under the tiling. This can happen in kitchens and bathrooms, and also on balconies. If damage occurs in rented properties, it is best to agree the next steps with the owner or building manager.


How to make your floors shine

In the final construction cleaning (site cleanup) process, we remove soiling – such as cement or epoxy resin haze and general dirt – from new tiling so that no residues are left behind. Deep cleaning of existing tiled areas usually involves the removal of a combination of deeply ingrained dirt, surface dirt and layers of care products. Special cleaning removes exceptionally stubborn dirt and stains such as green deposits, oil stains, tar spots and other blemishes.

Protection and care

How to keep your tiles looking beautiful

Regular maintenance with suitable care products is essential to ensure that your tiles and natural stone surfaces preserve their appearance – and their value. Impregnation agents make the tiles water-repellent and/or oil-repellent, depending on the product’s ingredients. Colour enhancers improve the tiles‘ visual appearance by accentuating their existing colours. Sealants produce a distinctive film that covers the surface of the flooring so it becomes non-slip after they have been applied.

Our experts will be glad to suggest optimal solutions for cleaning, protecting and caring for your tiled surfaces, tailored to your particular situation. To get a free expert assessment and quotation, call us on 061 338 86 or send us an email.  info@ganter.ch

Ceramic – versatile, innovative and durable

Ceramic tiling is very ecological and environment friendly. This building material simply consists of clay, minerals and water – with the addition of fire.

Modern ceramic materials offer an amazing variety of unusual surfaces, textures, colours and formats. They can even imitate natural stone and wood – with deceptive accuracy! Large-format tiles – in lengths of up to three meters – strike a modern note: they are installed with narrow joints to create a flat, even floor that gives a relaxed impression.

Benefits of tiled surfaces

Tiles last for ever – no matter how much they are exposed to wear from cleaning or during use

Fire-resistant and frostproof

Ceramic tiling is totally fireproof and weather-resistant. Embers falling from the fireplace or stiletto heels don’t stand a chance on tiled floors. The high percentage of joints in tiled flooring produces an anti-slip effect, so this solution is highly suitable for balconies and terraces.

Colourfast and non-fading

Even after many years, surfaces tiled with ceramic material and natural or artificial stone retain their original colours. They can withstand the aggressive UV radiation in sunlight and do not fade.

Antistatic and energy efficient

Unlike many other types of covering, tiling is antistatic. Floor tiles also have thermal energy storage and conductivity properties, making them the ideal choice of flooring for underfloor heating.

Pollutant-free and odourless 

Thinset mortar and grout consist of cement and natural types of sand. They are emission-neutral and have no effect on the ambient air after processing. They neither absorb nor store odours, vapours, smoke or fumes.

Ideal for people with allergies – resistant against mould and mildew

Ceramic wall and floor coverings have a closed surface that is fired at a high temperature, so they are especially suitable for people with allergies. They are highly resistant to mould and mildew, making them ideal for wet areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and toilets.
