UltraTile is the icing on the cake at stunning countryside wedding venue

Ace Tiling Limited and UltraTile have partnered together to repair a water damaged floor at a romantic wedding venue in Northamptonshire.


Located in Northamptonshire, Dodmoor House is an award-winning wedding venue. Twice named ‘Countryside Wedding Venue of the Year’, Dodmoor House organises over a 100 weddings a year at their breath-taking, 400-year-old converted barns.

The Challenge

A failure in the external drainage gulley had resulted in water seeping through the wall and damaging the wooden floor in the main reception area of the sunning wedding venue. The existing wooden floor and skirting board needed to be removed and the substrate ground down to remove high spots. This uncovered several minor stress cracks which required repair before levelling could commence.

Ace Tiling Limited had an extremely small window to complete the 85sqm installation. With weddings already booked on either side of the installation window, the team had to get the job done on time, ready for the next happy couple to say ‘I do’.

The Solution

Ace Tiling Limited used a number of UltraTile materials to fix the 1200 x 200 x 10mm porcelain wood-effect plank floor tiles. To prepare the substrate for tiling, UltraFloor Level IT Renovate semi-rapid fibre reinforced smoothing underlayment was poured over the entire area to give a beautifully smooth finish ideal for dancing wedding guests.

UltraTile ProPrimer advanced polymer primer was then applied to the area before Durabase matting was rolled out and fixed with UltraTile ProFlex SP rapid set flexible tile adhesive.

Once the stunning wood-effect tiles had been fixed with UltraTile ProGrip FX, the skirting boards were refitted and finished off with colour matching perimeter silicone and movement joints where required.

For that extra finishing flourish, Ace Tiling Limited used UltraTile ProClean Grout Aid to eliminate any unwanted grout hazing.


The combination of Ace Tiling Limited’s expert knowledge and skills and UltraTile’s superb products, meant the job completed one day ahead of schedule.

On using UltraTile, Sam Iland, Owner of Ace Tiling Limited commented: “We specify UltraTile on all our jobs where possible. The products are user friendly and we have the utmost confidence in their performance. This, combined with the good relationship with Martin and Josh who helped with the spec, and the support and training that UltraTile are giving us through Tilers Community is a no brainer for me!

“Both we, and the client are delighted with the outcome. We had a strict timeframe to work to but we got the job done.”

“Queen’s Court were over the moon with the job. We completed on time with minimal disruption to residents. We installed the flooring during the winter months, but the colder weather had no effect on the performance of Level IT Pro30 – it ticked all the boxes”
