10 Most Essential Qualities In A Tile Contractor

  1. Has qualified experience

  2. Great references that you can contact

  3. A reputation based on quality service and great results

  4. Pricing Is fair

  5. Has a good work ethic

  6. Leaves the job site clean

  7. Has good crew members helping them

  8. Communicates well with clients, keeping them up to date

  9. Is licensed

  10. Has enthusiasm for your project

When considering a tile contractor, trust your gut experience. Check out references, and have them answer key question you have about your project. It’s also useful to find out how many other projects they have going on -- and, if and how that might influence the work they would do for you.

Contractors bring different strengths and experience to their projects. Find out what those are.

For example, Ceramic Finishes owner Joey Bermudez is an avid tile historian, tile artist, and restoration tile craftsman.

In addition to doing standard types of tile work, he is someone who helps his clients design period-style and custom tile installations in their residences and businesses. When you need that French Provincial kitchen, an ancient Greek floor border, an authentic Craftsman home tile treatment, or want a custom medallion designed, fabricated and installed, you’re tapping into his territory. He loves those types of projects. He relishes odd-shaped and odd-angled spaces too.

Find out if your potential contractor is just doing another tile job, or brings something special and exciting to the table.

When all else seems to be in order, it is extremely helpful if you get along decently and communicate well with your tile contractor. A good rapport makes a difference.

These are good places to start a dialog with a potential tile contractor. So, with these essential points considered, settling on the professional who is the best fit for you can help your next tile project or remodel go more smoothly.
