Colorful slate tile, craftsmanship result in bold design for Norfolk shower remodel
Norfolk, Va., member Anthony Gonzalez recently hired Sal’s Tile And Marble of Virginia Beach, Va., to complete a tile installation. This was Gonzalez’s third project working with owner Sal Maldonado.
Here’s what Gonzalez had to say about his experience:
For my upstairs bathroom, Sal laid the pan for the shower floor and got the pitch just right for the water to drain properly. He also put a cement backer board on the walls of the shower, then put slate tile on the shower walls and floor. He put a board on the floors to create a subfloor prior to putting slate on the bathroom floor.
This is the third time I have hired Sal to do work for me, and as always, he was punctual — showed up when he said he would to give me an estimate and then showed up on time to start work each day.
The tile job that Sal did shows how meticulous he is and the number of precision cuts he does shows that he takes pride in his work. He finished the bathroom in a few days and it was a fabulous job.
