"I met with 3 contractors and another tile installer, and Giovanni had the best price for the level of service. I could tell that some of the contractors didn't know what they were talking about, so it was a no-brainer to hire Giovanni because he is an expert with a very fair price.
4.) He's very collaborative and gives great advice. He helped us choose our grout colors, and even advised us on the tile size - we were going to go with 3x6 subway tile, but Giovanni suggested we upgrade to 4x12, because it is more modern. We were also going to go with a bullnose finish, but he advised that we go with a black metal trim. We are SO glad we listened to him because everything looks sharp.
5.) Lastly, and most importantly, **his work is impeccable**. Our bathroom looks beautiful, and everyone comments on how "perfect" the tile is. I had a handyman at the house (for electrical & plumbing) at the same time Giovanni was working, and he even commented on the tile: "Wow, that is the best tile job I've ever seen."
If you need a full renovation, or small tile repair, do exactly what his shirts say ... KEEP CALM AND CALL GIOVANNI! You won't be disappointed."
