How did you get started doing this type of work?
I decided to be a tile mason after working one summer on the coast in Monterey California. I loved the water and the location of most of the jobs. Most of all after working hard on a project I get to see a tangible product that can be judged by others in my profession for many uears after I leave the job. This is saying with my work "look what I can do".
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common type of work performed by Betts Designs is custom bathrooms and kichens with imported tiles and stones. I enjoy a chalenge in my work and preffer not to do repetitious labor but custom and unique projects that my require that much more craftsmanship and patience.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish all my clients knew that in North Carolina many other tile masons do not have the training I recieved being in the Union in Chicago for over eight years. My apprenticeship alone was over four years before I was allowed to set a tile on the job, unlike many tile masons who recieves little training or no apprenticeship to become a tile mason in North Carolina.
