Tile man needed for shower build in Middlesex Cnty NJ

Looking to have my stand up shower done. The shower base is 48" x 32" Swanstone base. It will be installed prior to the job. I will also have all the old tile and greenboard removed from the shower. It will be three walls. I want the tile installed up to the ceiling which is 8 feet high and the ceiling. I want the job done correctly. All the tile guys I speak to just want to tile over cement board. None of them even speak about waterproof membrane. Please contact me if you are a quality tile installer who will do it the correct way not the easy way.

Robert, hang in there, there are several guys in your area who can help you out. Dont go to far with your project before contacting one of the guys. They may have a different mind set on doing things you might want to hear. Good luck.

Hammy, Thanks. I called like 12 tile guys. Only 3 called me back. The 3 who called me back did not perform the job the way I see most of you recommend. They want to just lay wire mesh on the wood sub floor and tile over the wire mesh and in the shower just install cement board and put the tile on the cement board. I renovated my other full bath and I did it exactly as I seen recommended on forums. That was 5 years ago so some things have changed since then. I just dont have the time for my master bath and I also want a quick turn around. Thanks

My schedule is quite hectic right now but if your willing to let me come in on Sunday's and nights I can help ya out. Make sure they set the pan with structure lite or some type of cement or it will always crack around the base where tile meets the pan.

Welcome, Donnie.

Hammy meant for you to put information into your User Profile, not in your signature line. There is a place for what you do, where you do it, how long you been doing it, that sort of thing. Folks can look in there and see just what kinda fella they're having the conversation with.

In your signature line we'd like to see a first name. You can also put a link to your website if you'd like.
