"We love our new backsplash from Tileology! Amanda was a huge help in finding the right tile, and Peter did a great job installing a difficult pattern with lots of cuts." –Kevin L. via Google
"Our shower has a minor leak but one that meant we wouldn't be able to use it. The plumbers who came to inspect it identified the issue as being related to the tile work, and thus outside of their expertise. I found Tileology on Google, and they had good reviews on other review sites. After I got in touch with Ken, he came out to take a look, and after asking some questions, he determined the leak was most likely not the shower floor, which would be an expensive repair, but the tile seat could be replaced at a lower cost.
