This is What a Home Run Looks Like

image

Valle Homes and Valle Traditions is one of the finest home builders in all of the Toledo market and surrounding areas.

Mosaic is #1 on Google for tile installation in the same market. Fine homes ought to have tile, lots of tile; And it ought to be done well. Which is why it is no wonder that Mosaic and Valle should meet as they did on this well known Ottawa Hills home.

Below are photos from Fred which show what he did in the first floor bathroom. It is simple classy and expertly done. It will never go out of style

When the Owner of Valle stepped in to take a look at our work, he said, “This is what a home run looks like!” Of course it is. It’s what we expect of ourselves, and it’s what our clients expect of us; being the #1 most visible tile installer in the Toledo market.

I wish to thank Fred, Valle Homes and Valle Traditions, the home Owners, Laticrete tile products, Joe at Main Street Tile and Jennifer at Design Classics.

Special thanks to Mike at Valle for his amazing tile prep. He’s a real a difference maker. All discriminating consumers should select Valle strictly based on this. Rich Effler and his partner care enough about the success of their projects and they understand how critical tile execution is to that goal (among other things) – that they have a tile prep guy to make sure things are done right before handing it off to the tile guy. It’s almost a shame to cover Mike’s work.

90% Prep 10% Tile Laying 100% Perfect

image

Robert sent us these photos of The Little Clinic in Englewood OH. This is an excellent Luxury Vinyl Tile job and it is all about the prep. Notorious for showing defects in the slab, the paper thin LVT install must be prepped prepped prepped. It helps if you have the concrete guy on the team too.

When we were last together on the job, I showed Robert an excellent example of concrete patching. We asked the concrete guy to keep it up. He had a lot of patching to do. What do you know? It appears he hurried through the rest Levin lots of highs and lows and generally patches 1/8″ higher than the surrounding concrete.

Robert had to build a whole new floor to hide this guy’s sins in the slab. See photos below.

And here’s the finish on many coats of feather finish. It shouldn’t be this hard, but with prep like this, tile laying comes easy.

Robert takes pride in his work. As do all the installers at Mosaic. Keep the photos coming.

Tile your First Floor

image

Here’s an idea which will make Wes’s day/week: Tile your first floor. We have been getting a lot of requests for that. Wes sent us photos of this one he’s doing in Lyons Ohio. Notice the flatness, the unfaceted reflection from the window. Nice work. He’s wrapping up this one for Todd Keefer Construction this week.

Book Wes now for your next big floor job.

Getting Stone Showers in SC

image

Adrian sends us these photos of white marble showers he’s doing in Hilton Head area, South Carolina. The stone is very good quality, as is the workmanship. Look to the reflections from tile to tile. Little to no refraction, that faceted look. Instead the reflections appear to all be on the same plane. Clean, shiny, very nice.

Book Adrian now for your next stone shower.
