For the past 17 years, I’ve been in the tile installation trade where I’ve worked on projects from new construction, to custom built homes, to residential re-models, and commercial tile projects. What originally drew me to tile was the project-based aspect to the job—building and creating something from the ground up—even though the learning curve was steep. I can still remember my very first week in the trade, I called my dad on a lunch break and told him, “This trade just isn’t for me.” to which he replied, “Give it an honest chance.” It’s a decision I’m glad I made.
I made the choice to get my contractor’s license in 2008 and branch out on my own and I haven’t looked back since. This trade is extremely rewarding. I enjoy being able to stand back at the end of a job and say, “Look what I’ve created!” and I look forward to working with you on your next project.
