Description of work:
"Tigele Tile completely remodeled my master bath, tiled 80 percent of the room and added heated floors. Johann [Janoschka, the owner] and his crew did all of the demolition, plumbing, electrical, tile work, floor, drywall and painting."
"I planned to do this myself with my brother's help, but I called in the professionals when my dreams became bigger than my brother's capabilities," Merkel says. "This was my first major remodel, and things went extremely smoothly. Nothing seemed to faze Johann's crew. When an outside contractor provided a vanity at the wrong size, Johann and his ace worker, Janusz, saved the day by making cutouts to work around it. Johann said his mission was to provide the bathroom of our dreams, and that's exactly what he did. The end result was beautiful and functional."
