Completed Project | House Souvaris.

January 29, 2024


Bringing Italtile’s inimitable Beautiful Living home to style-conscious customers is just a small part of Italtile Boksburg’s commitment to service, as Mr. Donovan Souvaris discovered when he popped in to browse tile selections to replace his ageing and damaged poolside tiles and coping. He spoke to Italtile Boksburg’s Sales Consultant Renaco Botha about his frustration with tiles that had not just lifted, cracked and faded over time, but had also lost their slip-resistance and were no longer safe.

Mr Souvaris’s other pain point was that the pool coping had faded and come loose.

Renaco discussed Italtile’s exclusive 2cm Porcelain Paving Tile ranges: durable options that offer advanced slip-resistant technology and longevity, quite apart from contemporary design and stunning good looks. This collection of beautifully hardy outdoor pavers has been curated from the very best on offer from top international manufacturers. Pavers offer an eco-chic outdoor aesthetic that is gaining traction for both commercial and residential properties; traditional, thirsty lawns are losing popularity, making way for the development of more sustainable, low-maintenance ground coverings.

Understanding that a top-quality outdoor renovation adds substantially to the resale price of a property, Renaco encouraged Mr. Souvaris to choose a tile that offered the very best possible all-round value. Mr. Souvaris selected Italtile’s high-end 600 x 900mm Cemento Grey Matt Slip-Resistant 2cm Porcelain Paver Tile. Offering a high resistance to breaking loads, Cemento Grey can handle heavy foot traffic and also withstand outdoor conditions without compromising its integrity in the long term. It’s a tile with impressive slip-resistant properties, making it a wise choice for an outdoor space.

Mr. Souvaris took sample paver tiles home to get an idea of the effect, and he was drawn to Cemento Grey’s undeniable urban sophistication. House Souvaris was ready for its outdoor refreshment and the Souvaris family was excited to elevate their outdoor relaxation areas and modernise the property.

Mr Souvaris was concerned about the performance of his existing pool copings, so Renaco encouraged him to consider a more durable option; one that delivers a sophisticated update on a pool surround with a seamless, sleek look, custom created by bespoke waterjet tile cutting specialists Waterstone.

Renaco Botha did a thorough site investigation to take exact measurements and ensure that they handed over a set of precision layouts and designs to Della Terra. The Cemento Grey Pavers were then sent to the waterjet cutting factory for custom cutting – with full bullnosing and half-bullnosing with mitred edges – and finally delivered for professional installation according to the layout plans. With oversight from Renaco Botha through the process, the renovation began in September 2023 and was completed in December 2023.

Premium product, specialist craftsmanship, expert advice and attentive service all combined to create a first class outdoor renovation. Photographs of the completed installation speak for themselves. House Souvaris is now a top-tier example of luxurious, contemporary indoor/outdoor living, with a sleek, seamless modern aesthetic that not only greatly enhances the family’s everyday enjoyment of their outdoor space, but will also increase the Souvaris family’s ROI when it’s time to sell.
