About this pro
I take the time to visualize my work before I do installations and lay out my tile for the best look asthetically from the piont of view the area or room is most looked at. When doing stone I also lay out the area and match colors and pattern which helps the job flow better when looking at these details. What I like most about my work is that you can truely see the diffence in my work . After 20 years of setting tile, the experiance shines thru in details and how I keep my jobsite clean.
- 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.
