Tile Excellence For Sale and I retired to Florida, So why am I in Gloucester, MA...

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
FontCandy.png means Tile Excellence continues to be the number one tile installation and tile repair service North of Boston and is certainly a turnkey business. 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. There are also many additional opportunities available due to the popularity of the website and blog [with almost 200,000 visitors as of today] --mostly advertising options--residual, passive money plus other ideas I wish I could have done. tons of other residual monies available through the solid reputation and popularity of Tile Excellence, and as the new owner of Tile Excellence, the opportunities are limitless."

Last week in Georgetown Ma. I completed 450 sq ft of tile in a basement and 120sq ft of tile in a adjoining new bathroom.Was a pretty simple job for me and the labor cost to the customer was $1350 for the 450 sq ft of floor tile and  $1000. for the bathroom. These customers were younger hard working first home owners.They used 18 by 18 porcelain tile on their basement floor and 2 ft by 6 inch tiles on the wall.The 18 by 18 floor tiles were what I would call a "real tree"pattern after the "real tree" line of clothing I love it !!I thought it to be the most natural soothing tile I EVER installed .The 2ft by 6 inch tiles on the shower wall looked just like wooden walls.The whole job screamed Chris Lawson!


This job was really enjoyable to me and I hope you enjoyed me sharing it with you.I give examples of my work and what I charge for such work as a reference for you the home owner and the consumer to know what costs for such work should be and how to know when you've met a reasonable tile man and when your being taken for a ride. I appreciate every reader and hard worker out there hope this benefits you and makes your tile choices and contractor shopping easier :) chris

Unbelivable prices for flooring in my town




A friend of mine in Rockport mass. who has referred me many jobs over the last 2 years, called me to come do atub shower tile job. The square footage of the job was 50 sq ft plus 16 liner ft. of bullnose. I charged him $ 350.00 and completed the job in 5 hours a good job for me.

They were not sure what they wanted to put on their 35 sq ft bathroom floor.After completing the tub,I asked About the floor.The wife told me she didn't think they could afford tile on the floor and would have to do linoleum . She was talking with a very well known Family flooring company in Gloucester ma (my town) the next town over. I asked more about what they would get and the cost. Unbelievably the cost for linoleum for 35 sq ft was $700!!!COME ON how do these people sleep at night?My friend is a good hard working ethical homeowner living on a semi retired income.I told the wife to go get 40 sq ft of porcelain tile from Home Depot $40 3 sheets of 3ft by 5 ft hardy board hardy board $30 1 lb 2 inch roof nails$3 and 15 lbs sanded grout $13. I charged her $135 for labor , completed her job in 2 hours more that day.She had a floor installed material and all for $211 and I made $68 per hour more that day.Now my question to readers and contractors out there Whats your opinion on this??I do tile every day and have for over 30 years and am very quick and have a lot of tricks in my tool bag to expedite the job. But the kind of prices being charged out there are just plain crazy. I advise ANYONE who is having work done in their home to shop a while see you options and talk to at least 3 or more tradesmen until you find the best fit. Don't get caught up in smooth talk and salesmanship and pay dearly. And if its a tile job feel free to contact me any time for the lowdown on what I know best   I wont solicit you just give you my advice like I do every day through this blog no strings attached.  Thanks Chris
