Raleigh company adds style to ceramic floor tile
Member L.F. Eason of Cary, N.C.,recently hired Elite Tile Systems of Raleigh, N.C., to retile a shower and bathroom floor and install a tile kitchen backsplash.
Here’s what Eason had to say about the experience:
Elite Tile showed up exactly when promised and started carefully covering the carpet with protective plastic film and hardwood floors with canvas drop cloths. During the demolition of the old tile, they hung plastic sheeting to very effectively limit the amount of dust.
Within two days, they had completed the demolition and reconstructed the shower floor. On the third day, one worker tiled the shower and bathroom floor while another installed the kitchen backsplash. The fourth day, they grouted it all and cleaned up everything!
They always agreed to do things as I asked, but when what I suggested wouldn’t work out as well as I thought, they tactfully suggested better ways to accomplish what I wanted. I’m totally impressed, both by their efficiency and the quality of their work! They took no shortcuts and everything was done to perfection.
Since the shower wall tile was slightly different, they helped me pick out a narrow border to disguise the separation between the old and the new. They suggested a staggered pattern for the new tile below the border, something I never would have thought of, which worked perfectly.
The diagonal floor tile pattern is perfectly placed and everything on the backsplash is centered so partial piece cuts are minimal and equal on both ends of tile runs. All grout lines are perfectly spaced, smooth and without gaps. The mosaic over the stove worked out great! Without question, this was the best experience I’ve ever had with any contractor!
