Tile Installation Services | Labor Only | Tile Excellence

... for the entire summer posting tile job pictures here and on Craigslist Boston-something I haven’t done since I retired 2 years ago-- from a tile installation job I just finished in Gloucester, MA?  Because...

I am BOOKED solid with tile installation and repair jobs,  including lots of waterline swimming pool tile repairs.

"Hey there, this is Chris Lawson, owner of Tile Excellence. I’ve been providing customers quality tile installation and tile repair services, one-job-at-a-time throughout Cape Ann, the North Shore and for customers North of Boston at reasonable prices for over a decade. I retired a couple of years ago to Florida, and decided recently since the demand for tile services has not slowed down much, and since it has not sold yet, I felt an obligation to my loyal customers here in MA. So instead of relaxing and figuring out my FL plans this summer, I filled my schedule book with tile jobs throughout the Boston North, MA area, and  I arrived from Florida in early May and won't be done with my tile job commitments in MA until September. I am looking forward to my FIRST day off in a month tomorrow,

Most tile jobs were set up during the fall/winter while I was living in Florida. People knew how in demand Tile Excellence's services have been as I've been turning away tile jobs for years now due to the demand. But the calls and requests for my services have not stopped, and since Tile Excellence has not been sold yet, I feel an obligation to the loyal customers of Tile Excellence. It has such a strong reputation for providing quality tile installation and repair services throughout the cities and towns North of Boston and throughout Cape Ann and the North Shore for well over a decade, at the most reasonable prices, people won't stop asking for tile services. the calls haven't stopped and neither have the top listings on , sometimes for multiple listings on PAGE ONE  of Google, which

If you are the new lucky owner of Tile Excellence, you could already have your summer booked with tile jobs. A simple ad, like below, along with the Tile Excellence website--which is where I get almost all my customers except for referrals and repeat customers, who I am doing work for this summer mostly--and the blog of course, and you’ll see, the phone doesn’t stop.  You’ll be turning down good tile jobs before you know it, just like I have been for the past several years and how I was able to comfortably retire early.
Since I am HERE in the Gloucester, MA area until September, and I am willing to mentor you through the transition of ownership. I will make sure you are making the money we discussed, and you are all set up and running before I leave--at no additional costs. I want you to have as much success as I have enjoyed, and want the good reputation Tile Excellence has earned to continue. plus I’d like to get back to that retirement gig. I have been a master tile installer for over 30 years, so I think it’s time. Don’t you? You can call me with any questions, and I'll be happy to meet with you and go over the business and how I’ve run it, and how I can show you how to be just as successful.

Do's and Dont's of Choosing a Tile Installer to do Work in your Home

Tile installation is a very specialized trade and most tile after installed is in effect a concrete like product and can't easily be changed. In most cases if change is needed then new material will have to be repurchased. So it is imperative to hire a qualified professional tile installer to do your work. But How do you know who to choose?

Here are some basic guide lines that can help you make an educated choice.

1. Its always nice to find someone one of your friends has had in their home and has had experience with the installer's work, so start with friends and family to see if any one knows a quality tile installer
2. If none of your friends or family knows of a good tile installer , then the newspaper or numerous internet classified sites are your best bet, the most known of course is craigslist.
3. Always get at least 3 quotes  and if they seem like high prices  they probably are and continue looking until you find something comfortable for you.  The most economical way to go is to find a labor only installer and supply the materials yourself.
4. ALWAYS  get and check as many references as possible  the best reference is a completed tile job somewhere in public  that you can go out on your own and see for yourself.

For instance,  I have 2 jobs in the public mall here in Boston on the North Shore that anyone can just go into the store and see the work.
5.  Longevity and durability of a job is very important  if you can talk to a customer of your installer who's job was done some years ago  you will know the job is still in tack and done in a quality manner and you will get a lasting installation
6.Ask questions of your prospective installer before committing to hiring him. NEVER let ANY installer tell you its ok to lay tile on top of a wood substructure, It will not last half the life of tile laid on Hardiboard or Durock your grout can crack and tile break  from wood movement and any water ever on your floor will cause failure . make sure any tile laid in a wet area such as shower or bathroom is installed with thin set concrete and NOT tile mastic as mastic does not do  well in a wet environment. Never install tile in a shower on Sheetrock  or green board use only Hardi board or durock.
7. Always insist your installer use spacers and if he tells you he doesn't need them he can do well without them  then  don't hire him  period. I've been installing tile for over 37 years  and can lay a floor without spacers  but the finished product is  NEVER  as clean and straight as the one done with spacers.
8. I personally would never want any bench in my shower built out of wood, wood in a wet area makes no sense. Cement blocks are much less costly and will last forever.  I would insist on a concrete block bench in my shower
9. Finally your installer  will be in your house for some  days make sure your choice for a installer is one you feel comfortable and at ease  with.

I hope this advice has given you some inside information and thoughts from a professional tile installer that will make your choice for a tile installer easier and less stressful   

Remember, tile installation is a very hard and physical trade right up there with stone masons, sheet rock hangers  and roofers many years of work can take a real toll on the body. I myself have had both my hips replaced,  my knees are sore, and my back hurts as i step out of the truck first thing in the morning. We deserve to make a good wage,  not outrageous , but fair and honest working pay. If you have any question about your job  as always I am here and accessible by phone to answer any questions from anyone who needs  guidance    chris lawson  Tile Excellence  978 471 9127
