Help needed in Colorado- tile setters

John, I hope this post doesn't violate any forum rules, if it does please delete and I understand and won't do again.


I'm currently looking for some help, I run a remodeling buisness in Colorado doing a lot of bathrooms and am looking for some good tile setters to sub-contract work out to.

I have an immediate need for someone to do a custom mud pan for a shower that will have glass block walls. The pan is about 64x48 with an angle on the walk-in end.

A good customer service attitude and top quality work is required.

You can contact me from my websites contact information page.
www.rmchi.com or mike@rmchi.com

Thanks

Hi Mike

Wish I was in Colorado to help you with that pan. We help several contractors out here with similiar projects. Not too many guys seem to know how to do a pan properly.

It probably wouldn't work anyway. Something about that good customer service attitude!

Hi Mike, I hope you'll find someone, if I wasn't swamped here I would love to help you out. You might have to do like me work day and night or just say NO. Where were you again?

John K,

If you teach me how to do them I bet i could answer the call. I have pretty good rapport and relationship with my customers. Indy's not too far from your area.

I'm going to the Schulter school at CTEF next week so I'm sure I'll learn something.

Pat

Hi Pat

Was kidding about the rapport thing! Hopefully, I have some of the best customer relations around.

Let us know what you learn at CTEF.

You come to the Chicago area, you can pick my brain all you want (if there's anything left), by the time you get here.

Hi Ricangirl

Just read your post. What part of NW IL (Galena?)?

I'm staffed for right now, but you never know what opens up. I'm putting together some new strategies. We also do full Kitchen & Bath Remodels, as well as home maintenance & repair.

PM me, and we'll exchange phone numbers if you like.

Schluter school was very good. I learned a lot about Schluter products but best of all I learened the basics ot a mud shower pan and got to do some hands on making a mud shower pan. I also got some tips from a guy that has been in construction 39 yrs (mason first 14 yrs and in tile the last 25); he gave me some good tips.

This was my 2nd time at CTEF so I knew going in that I wanted to try out some of the tile cutters. did that maybe looking to buy a different one.

I'm sure you've got a lot of info in that brain for me to pick.

thanks, Pat
