"Very professional, thorough, and exceptional service. They were prompt, explained their pricing and what to expect prior to and during the visit. I was unable to get a straightforward answer on what was the cause for the leak when contacting other companies and thankfully Mr. Handyman was available to address on the spot and fix it. Would highly recommend!"

"Working with Juan was a great experience. I just purchased a condo in downtown Baltimore and have noisy neighbors above me. I wanted to have an extra layer of drywall installed to help mitigate the footfall and airborne noise. Juan and his crew did a phenomenal job with the installation. I really appreciated amount of detail taken to make sure the work was done poperly. This was my first remodel so I wasn't sure what to expect but Juan made sure to explain the process from start to finished. This experience was great. FIVE STARS. "

"Mary Ann (owner) was very helpful. I was looking to hire a company to repair/replace bathroom grouting for a family member. (A previous company had used the wrong colored grout for the tiles.) The repairman did a great job on the grout and also did a few other things such as installing handle bars in the shower and filling a gap behind the sink. The only issue was that he used grout rather than caulk behind the sink, but the company came back out to fix it. All of the repairs look great and, best of all, the grouting came in a little under the original estimation. "

"We hired this company to partially demo an outdoor storage area and then install new stucco wall boards on the upper half. Things began well enough. They contacted us immediately and an estimator came out the next day. He was very personable and responsive when we contacted him during the job. Unfortunately, the actual execution of the project didn't go nearly as well. First of all, while they did put considerable effort into replacing some of the rotted wood, they did not complete all of the services that we specifically requested as noted in the contract, such as securing the wood framing to the house with lag bolts and filling in the gaps against the foundation. Nor did they bother to caulk around the exterior of the new wall boards. So, when it rained, the water seeped right in. As a result, those brand new boards that they just installed are now damaged. Sadly, we have a range of other complaints as well. For example, several nails are sticking out of the boards into the air, nowhere near any studs, meanwhile, some nails that actually reached the studs barely connected and splintered the wood instead. Additionally, the men arrived late two of the three days without any sort of notice, and, when they finally did show up, both crews seemed ill-informed as to the particulars of the job. Plus, they left trash all over our driveway upon leaving. Last, but certainly not least, our door, which had been professionally hung and leveled at considerable cost, no longer closes and locks properly. It’s been knocked out of alignment--something they either didn't check prior to wrapping up the job, or didn't care enough to fix. From start to finish, our job was riddled with miscommunication, poor work ethic, and plain old disrespect. I don’t know if our crew was inept or just lazy, but this is, beyond a doubt, the shoddiest workmanship we have ever received. Nor was it cheap. Honestly, we expect quality workmanship for our money. What we received was far from it. To say we are dissatisfied, would be a huge understatement. UPDATE: Shortly after publishing our review, we were contacted by multiple representatives from the company, eager to make amends for our dissatisfaction. I spoke with Vanessa, who was very understanding and apologetic. Though we refused the company's offer to come out and fix most of the issues previously mentioned (mainly because we'd already corrected them ourselves), we did accept a $100 Visa gift card from the owner, as well as their agreement to realign our door. For this, they sent one of their door specialists. Will and Melvin came out two days later, arrived an hour earlier than expected, and did an absolutely outstanding job. After working diligently all day long, they not only realigned our door, they actually replaced it (along with some rotted wood in the frame), before leveling the door, caulking around it, and adding some very nice vinyl trim. All at no cost to us. They did a beautiful job; we are very"

"The job of renovating a rental property townhome involved many different skills (painting, flooring, plumbing, electrical, caulking, landscaping, power washing, deck staining, faucet replacements, junk hauling) and Dale Turner did them all very well. He only subcontracted the carpet removal and installation. All other work he did himself. He stayed on the job until it was completed (approximately 2 weeks of work) and required no oversight. He was flexible when I added more tasks after the initial contract was signed. The costs were very reasonable but even more important to me was Dale's integrity. I needed a contractor I could trust.

"There is not enough room to describe the quality and professionalism of Mark Gray and Royal Castle Contractors. On time, on budget with exceptional attention to detail and knowledge. Mark ended up doing additional work ( resurfacing the fireplace in stone) at my request as well. He fixed plumbing issues that were left by other contractors. He had viable recommendations for things we had not thought of. He takes pride in his work and we are scheduling him for additional work in the spring! Communications any time of day or evening - this father & son's team is awesome. Our kitchen, 2 bathrooms and living room are fabulous. He knows how to take down or move walls, do stone work and general contracting. Throughout the process, Mark stayed in touch to let us know what was happening and when he needed something. His team cleaned up every day and treated our house as if it were his own. I feel like he is now part of our family!"

Ideas & Inspiration from Baltimore Tile Contractors

Baltimore Ceramic Tile

When most homeowners in Baltimore think tile, one of two products usually comes to mind: ceramic tile in Baltimore, and natural stone tile. Stone tile definitely has its attributes, including good looks, durability, and, well, good looks. When it comes to cost and variety, however, Baltimore ceramic floor tile and other ceramic tile products take the prize hands down.

It's Not Your Grandmother's Ceramic Tile

Granted, the slogan didn't exactly work wonders for Oldsmobile, but it fits perfectly for ceramic tile in Baltimore. Perhaps the most exciting thing about ceramic tile in Baltimore these days is the incredible range of products that are available for homeowners to choose from. If the words "ceramic tile" dredge up memories of Grandma's powder blue bathroom, or remind you of the gaudy pink tiles in the neglected half-bath down in your basement, it's high time that you expanded your horizons. From hand-painted Mexican terrazzo tile to imitation stone ceramic floor tile in Baltimore, and everything in between, ceramic tile has turned the corner from being a generic bargain product to offering up some of the most attractive and original tile designs on the market. Doesn't matter whether you live in a turn of the century farmhouse out in the suburbs, or a post-modern loft in the City, there's sure to be a ceramic tile design out there with your name on it.

Chameleon of Tile Products

One reason that ceramic tile has broken through the bland stereotypes that have followed it around for decades is the ability of technology to create ceramic tile in Baltimore that is a dead wringer for more expensive stone tile products. Whether it mimics travertine, tumbled marble, sandstone, or granite, ceramic tile manufacturing and glazing processes can create textures, shades, and glazes that fool even the most critical eye. And best of all, because you're talking clay instead of natural stone, you can save big bucks by having Baltimore ceramic floor tile installed instead of the real thing.

Choosing the Right Tile

We don't want to imply that choosing the right ceramic tile in Baltimore is easy pickings, however. A lot goes into the selection of a tile that meets the varied demands of different tile applications. Sitting down with a contractor who specializes in tile installation, or visiting a retailer dedicated to ceramic tile, is the best way to learn about the wide range of considerations that go into choosing the right tile for your project. Nevertheless, you'll want to polish up on your knowledge of tile glazings (high gloss, semi-gloss, matte, porcelain, hand painted, and unglazed tiles are a few examples), manufacturing processes (factory made, stamped, and hand made tile are all possibilities), densities (impervious, vitreous, semi-vitreous, and non-vitreous), and finishes (glazes vs. unglazed or sealed ceramic tile). Aside from looks, these qualities of individual tile lines will help you in determining whether a tile is best used on an outdoor patio, as a Baltimore ceramic floor tile indoors, or as a decorative wall tile. Choosing the right tile is the difference between a tile installation that you'll enjoy for years to come, and one that you'll have to replace just a few years down the road.

Installation and Costs

Finally, you'll need to take into account installation and cost when it comes to Baltimore ceramic tile. Based on the information that HomeAdvisor gathers from the homeowner surveys we send out to all past clients, an average ceramic tile installation in the Baltimore metropolitan area runs about $2,400. Tile quality, and the size and nature of your installation, can cause that figure to fluctuate, of course, but it's worth noting that a tile installation of any sort is no small undertaking. Between tearing up the old flooring, leveling out the subfloor, laying down cement board or other underlayments (if necessary), applying thinset mortar and tiles, applying and sealing the grout, and waiting in between each step for materials to dry and set before moving onto the next, installing tile ends up being quite a project.

Avid DIYers can tackle this job on their own, but most homeowners prefer to seek out the services of a professional contractor when it comes to installing ceramic tile in Baltimore. If that sounds more your speed, use a contractor referral service like HomeAdvisor to find reliable contacts, get bids from at least three different contractors, and ask for, and check, references before you sign any papers. It's far and away the most proven system if you want to end up with Baltimore ceramic floor tile, ceramic bathroom tile, ceramic tile countertops, or any other ceramic tile installation that will provide the good looks and long life that you deserve to get out of your investment.
