Tile Installation DIY Consumer Help Blog Says Bye to Blogger


Chris Lawson No Longer Associated With Consumer Help
Blog | Ask Tile Excellence

Effective last month, but officially finishing up this week, Chris Lawson, chief tile blogger here on Tile Installation| Consumer Help Blog is no longer a member of this tile focused DIY and Consumer Help Community. 

He plans on semi-retiring to Florida sometime in the near future, where he'll find Pool Around Tile Installations and Gemstone Tiles and Tile Art, three businesses/websites I created for Chris over the past 4+ years waiting for him. Plus of course E-Bay. 

I'm also pleased I could be instrumental in making a difference in Chris's life, and help him build up his tile business which has been thriving and lucrative for years, well known throughout North Boston and Cape Ann, Mass. This has allowed him many future opportunities he hadn't planned on. 

We are looking for someone to step up and take his place. Guest tile bloggers are welcome! We'll soon introduce our "Tile Excellence Tile Installers" in the North Shore area who provide tile excellence in their services!

Good luck and Best Wishes.

Recent Custom Installation Slate, Round Glass Tile Floor, Natural Stone Fireplace

Hi,

Sorry not a lot of time lately to write here on the blog, but I haven't gotten any questions here either! Come on, guys! Thanks for the emails and calls though, keep them up, but if you write here, I get a notice from my site and it helps remind me to write!! I've just been so busy, I could use the break. I'll be posting some shower pics I did on a handicap accessible shower a couple of weeks ago. Thanks.

-Chris

Tile Installation- Time Vs. Price

Hello,

First of all, let me apologize. I'm new to all this technology stuff, but I guess my "Welcome to Our Blog" post was supposed to come before I shared stories. However, I thought the following information might be helpful, and save some people some money, so it took priority. I'll try and post the first entry, but we'll see. Hang in there with me folks!

So, onto the information I wanted to share. I wanted to share some insight with people out there that need tile work done. Unfortunately, many people within the industry are out to get as much as they can for installation jobs. One of the most common ways to increase the charges for the installation is to drag the job out. Here's a good example I recently came across.

I recently installed a kitchen backsplash where the customer had gotten several estimates and done his research. Quotes were anywhere from $500-$750.00. Time frames varied from 2-4 days. As soon as I talked to him on the phone, I knew this was an installation that would take me a matter of hours. So, I priced the installation accordingly, which happened to be considerably lower than the above mentioned estimates because I knew through my 30+ years experience, that the job would take only half a day-and it would be flawless.

After our phone conversation, the potential customer checked out pictures of my work and references on my website, http://www.tileexcellence.com/  and quickly  scheduled the job. The bottom line here is, there are installers out there who will drag out the job to justify the price or are too inexperienced to do the job in a reasonable time frame, thus charging more. To save yourself from this situation, be sure to get three or more quotes for any installation and get references.  Check out their work if you can.

Tile Excellence, Inc. did the job in about 1/2 a day, and it costs the customer only $350.00 in labor. To see this project, before and after, and/or to see what Scott from Wakefield had to say about his new backsplash and the quality of the work, click here to visit our customer testimonial page.

Next blog post, I'll talk about hardyboard vs. durock. Stay tuned, and send me your questions or share your experience. Thanks.
