Kitchen & Powder Room Tiles-Brougham Way North Potomac MD 20878

May 9, 2014

 

Replaced congoleum floor with porcelain tile in kitchen and powder room.
Because I found this provider on Angie’s list and spoke with Eddie many times (was waiting to schedule the job until I was on vacation or work travel), I trusted the Tile Center to be in my home while I was away.
Eddie made recommendations about the tile – I wanted non-slip for my pets and we looked at all of the options available for procelain. He helped me to match my granite countertops and oak cabinets to just the right shade, and suggested options for installation and tile sizes. I went with 12″ x 24″ in a subway pattern.
When the installer found that my underfloor was damaged, he replaced a number of sections. When I returned after four nights, there was still the final grouting to complete as the damage had delayed the job. The installers were present on Friday all day, so I had a chance to observe them. They were skilled, quick, polite, and cleaned up very well (important for grout).
Originally we had thought that the tile would go all the way to the cabinets without any quarter rounds, but found out that my walls and counters were not quite square and this created gaps which would have looked strange with thin slivers of tile wedged in. Eddie suggested quarter rounds and gave me a nice discount on the price since he hadn’t originally estimated it.
Fred came to do the quarter rounds, and he went the extra mile by noticing that my bump-out window in the breakfast room was going to require awkward placement – he took a saw and sliced off the bottom 1/4″ of the frame so the quarter round could be straight. He placed everything carefully, cut perfectly, and the finished job looks fabulous!
