Looking for Contra Costa County, CA tile setter...


I was hoping to do this job myself - though it was going to be QUITE the adventure for a novice like me - but my knee has convinced me that a different course of action is in order.

We're laying around 850 sq. ft of porcelain tiles on the floors of the living room/dining room/kitchen/small bath & laundry room - all adjoining. The plywood underlayment is down as is the Hardiebacker above it - all drilled (where needed) screwed, mortared and positioned per the advice garnered from this board. I believe there's still a bit of leveling (actually flattening) to do, then, of course, laying the tiles.

And at this point I can barely walk - let alone get up and down off the floor, so...

It's time to call in a pro - and am hoping this will be the place for me to find someone exceptional.

Anyway, we're in Brentwood and I would more than welcome hearing from anyone in the area who might be interested in taking this on.

Here's the project thread for any discussion.

I guess that means someone in western Maine would be out of the question.

I'm a tile contractor in Napa, do you still need an installer?

Welcome to the forum, Maury.

Glad to have another pro around. We'd love for you to start an introductory thread in the Pro's Hangout and tell us a bit about yourself, your specialties...that sort of thing.

Tonto Goldstein... but my friends call me Bubba

Help an awesome summer camp!
