Creative solution to an unusual problem. Andrea did nice work on short notice and the price was very reasonable. Will definitely use again.Nov 11, 2013Verified
Andrea came and repaired some loose tiles in our bathroom. She did an excellent job! We had to have some tiles replaced and a patch done. She did all of this beautifully and matched the tiles with the old ones. The grout and everything looks great!! Thank you so much, Andrea!Nov 9, 2014Verified
We had received quite a few quotes from Thumbtack and elsewhere before we hired Andrea to do repairs on our bathroom floor. Other quotes ranged from bandaid solutions to gold-plated remodels. Andrea was the only person who both understood what we wanted and had the critical thinking skills to solve the problema feat she also accomplished within our budget. Unlike other tiling experts, she actually took up a tile to see what was causing the problem before giving us a quote. She was clean, precise and professional in her work and did a beautiful job of marrying the old floor to the new one. We were so impressed that we hired her to do several other jobs around the house as well. We highly recommend her services.Oct 20, 2013Verified
Very pleasant and extremely hard working lady. I hired Andrea to replace my tub/shower tile surround and also floor tile. She Tries her best to accommodate customer. Picked up supplies on more than one occasion when the items I purchased were not right for job. She toiled at Lowes in order to match tiles from two different lots when we ran short on tiles. she put up hardibacker board too. She even let our dogs out when we could not get back in time...I did initially request plastic or mesh sheeting behind backboard to help with additional waterproofing, but did not get it. (I also did not remind her.) Old tile wall was flat and wall was plumb prior to my demo-ing the shower wall... I had to remove two layers of wallboard just to get to studs. The old tile wall was plumb and level with large gaps at top covered with mud cap. Andrea put in new hardibacker board and the tiled wall now has a wave near top of tub due to bowing of the old stud. This was probably why there was a gap at top of previous wallboard being hidden by original mud-cap. This was a known issue prior to tiling. Andrea said she did her best but was unable to really fix it. So there is a small wave in wall..not as noticeable after grouting. I purchased a very hard porcelain tile called Rialto tile from Lowes and It was extremely difficult for her to work with. It is very hard!!!The small Ryobi portable wet saw she brought could simply not handle the job and she went through a brand new blade in one day cutting this tile. She also had to take home tiles at night to cut them with her bigger wet saw which stayed at home. When she went through a 40 dollar blade in one day on her portable wet saw, I felt badly and offered to pay for a new blade, even though some might say that this is just the cost of doing business. I did wonder if a bigger more industrial strength wet saw would have handled the job without having to take tiles home at night and going through blades so fast. Tiling skill: ( Very Good) for average sized jobs with a relatively flat substrate, using easy to cut ceramic tile or tile that does not require bringing a high powered industrial strength wet saw at job site. My quote also included removing and replacing toilet, however due to the added height of the toilet after tiling, I was unable to find the right bolts that were long enough for her to put the old toilet back...so, no toilet. She said she will get back to me..but I may see if my husband can do it. Tile looks nice..I am still removing a thick grout haze from shower surround, so the tiles look even prettier as I remove the grout dust. Job took about a week to complete.Sep 14, 2013Verified

- What types of customers have you worked with?I do alot of "Honey-Do's" Plumbing repairs, and fix-it work; everything but weld. Most of all I do Tile, removal, and laying. Bath remodel, kitchen floors and backsplashes. My clients are always happy.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I recommend they look at work that the provider has done, ask about references, and also interview more than 1 professional about the work to be done. Also Very Important; just because one is cheaper than another means nothing about Quality.
