Home Renovation From Gut Rehab in Less Than 4 Months!

Home renovation finished products

This house is a gut rehab¹ job. My team and I started this project in April 2019 and it is now complete and ready for occupancy. It’s a great honor to help the family get done and move in before winter arrived.

It took us roughly 4 months starting with pulling permit and completion.

We removed and reframed the whole house with 9 feet ceiling on the 2nd floor with an open layout concept. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the 2nd floor. First-floor open foyer with 2 big skylights to bring in more daylight to brighten up the area. Also, the first floor has a master suite and a walkout patio deck. Most importantly is the house completed on time so people can be ready for Thanksgiving dinner. Anyone who wants their house renovation please contact Lam for a free in-home consultation and estimate at 781 290 6000.  To keep up to date on the latest projects going on at Tile Excellence, subscribe to our consumer-friendly blog feed.

¹A major restoration project on an old house or other building, ripping out plaster walls back to the studs and rafters and replacing them along with some or all of the trim, windows, and doors, plumbing and electrical systems, exterior siding, roof, etc.

Natural Slate & Glass Tile Bathroom Installation

Natural Slate & Glass Tile Bathroom Installation

Natural stone slate tile is a very beautiful multi-color material that is not really a contemporary look but an all natural look. So it wouldn't seem that it would mix well with a modern contemporary glass tile look. But surprisingly, the slate tile installation job shown below turned out to be a very wonderful look.

Natural Slate Tile for Flooring can be installed over wood or cement if the floor is dry and stable.

With 6 x 6 slate outside and a glass centerpiece on the walls and 12 x 12 slate on the floor, it became a amazing look in this bathroom. It became a one of a kind look with the flair of the glass and the natural look of the slate I actually loved the look. I hope this may give you some unique ideas for your own bathroom. Thanks for reading.

The hands of a working man

Ive been posting  articles here since 2011. Ive been criticized by my peers mostly competitors and  at times threats of being sued  because i shared my opinions of products and procedures I use tried and true from over 35 years of laying tile. I write here on this blog for the sole purpose of helping and informing hard working people like myself how to get the best  quality tile job possible at the best possible price or even do it yourself. This economical thinking angers my competition and others in the industry. They would rather you not know the inside knowledge of your installation and for sure not be able to do it yourself.They see it as jobs and money they may lose. I on the other hand believe that by helping others is a asset and in the long run actually brings in more jobs and thus more income at the very least builds trust and appreciation from the ones it helps.  My competition never miss a chance to slam me , claim I'm incompetent and in some cases slander me as not knowing my job. Well to this i reply  Ive been installing tile for a lifetime  and in Boston alone in 15 years Ive  completed at least 100 jobs per year  so more or less 1500 jobs in the north shore area .  I continue to complete quality installations in north shore Boston and now Florida  to this day. I spend 8 months a year in Florida  and 4 months a year in Massachusetts and install tile to make my living.  I post pictures of jobs completed alot of time here on this blog Ive written many articles here that detail the process and best product that I use to do my job. I share MY procedures and experience to readers not as the ONLY way to do it  but as the way my years of experience have proven successful. I always offer my readers to ask questions  or call me direct for guidance through their job or dealings with their contractor. I'm just a working man  with working  mans  hands  willing to help who i can in a world mostly looking out for themselves.  Here are some photos of jobs completed in the last month  thanks for reading  and be blessed
