I stuck this thread and the plaster repair thread in case some people with answers might have missed these threads. For me, the home improvement threads could be useful in the future.

We used to use Rick's Custom Tile when I worked in residential construction. (419) 478-7705

Expect to pay for a quality installer though.

Also, the good people tend to be booked up several weeks, if not months, into the future. We waited 7 weeks for our guy to be available ... but it was worth every day and every dollar. Will share his name later -- I'm out of town right now.

I was going to recommend someone who did great work, but on another project he has been AWOL, so I will just keep my mouth shut.

Ken Kuyoth 419/481-4448. He has done some great work for a few of my friends.

Tile really isn't very hard. I've laid floors in both my bathrooms and in several friends hourse. Buy yourself a cheap wet saw ($100-$200) and spend some time on youtube and you can save yourself a mint.

If you decide to do it yourself, remember to start in the center and work toward the sides - it will look 100 times better that way.

Yes, the voice of experience speaking...

Tile and Stone Concepts, 419-266-6694

The lady who recommended them to me said that when considering installers, ask whether they have worked with glass tiles. It's a good indication of their skill level (and, you seem to have a glass component in your design).

Good luck!

I am resurrecting this thread since the recommendations are four years old. Does anyone have a really good tile guy? We are renovating a mud/laundry room/office and need approximately 210 sq/ft of tile laid. Thanks in advance.

Jeff Lewinski with Laidright Tile did a fantastic job on our bathroom.

He was trained in Germany which is a big deal, at least according to the lady that owns Main Street Tile.

We have used Scott Cox work # 419-878-7818 he does great work and fair price and shows up when he tells you he will. He was recommended by our plumber Engler and Sons who is very reputable.
