About Us



The principals of Regeneration Tiles, Frieda Wachsmann and Greg Woodward have over 80 years’ experience in the building and property industries.

Frieda Wachsmann began her fascination with Victorian houses when as a young student she moved from the leafy eastern suburbs of Melbourne to a shared house in North Fitzroy. Since then she has lived in the inner suburbs of Melbourne, and currently resides in Kensington. She has restored several Victorian houses over the years, each one presenting its own unique challenges. Her goal is to maintain the authenticity and integrity of the houses, while ensuring they are comfortable, modern spaces adapted for today’s living.

Greg Woodward did his apprenticeship as a carpenter and joiner. Some of this time was spent in heritage restoration at Duntroon Military Academy in Canberra. He values the integrity and aesthetic qualities of all buildings, from Victorian through to Edwardian, and Art Deco. He ensures that all Regeneration Tiles work is of a standard that compliments each era.

Frieda and Greg are supported by their team  of qualified tilers, and  apprentices, as well as support staff at our factory, and our hounds, Angie, Bella and Scout. Regeneration Tiles is a collaborative workspace, committed to supporting women in trades.


We have been a repeat customer of Regeneration tiles for many years now. The reason for this is their ability to work with us and our objective in producing outstanding work.

My husband and I have a lovely Victorian home which we have lived in for over 30 years. It was in need of some love and attention to draw out the beauty of our home. As part of the renovations we decided to replace the tessellated tiles on the front veranda and add a tessellated path from the gate to the front door. We selected Regeneration Tiles to carry out these works, and we are so glad that we did. We were delighted with the result which has improved the street appeal of our property and taken it to the next level. We absolutely love it. Thanks to Frieda and all the Regeneration Tiles staff for their wonderful service and attention to detail.

Greg and his staff came out removed the old tiles from our verandah in Kew. While the builder rebuilt the slab for under the tiles, the team at Regeneration cleaned the tiles. Regeneration returned and laid the tiles, they look like new saving me thousands of dollars. The staff were prompt and easy to work with. I would highly recommend the team at Regeneration to anyone looking to do restoration work or newer tile work.

We needed professional tilers to replace the slate on the verandah of our heritage property in Port Melbourne. After long research we were recommended to try Regeneration Tiles Pty Ltd. Frieda, Greg and the team of young female tilers were all totally professional and a pleasure to work with. We are delighted with the finished product.

Thank you Regeneration Tiles for a gorgeous front verandah. Ebony was a delight to have working through the project and did a magnificent job. Thank you Greg and Frieda for your advice and guidance throughout the process. I don't think I will ever get tired of the compliments from not only family and friends, but the myriad of delighted pedestrians walking by and stopping to enjoy!
