The first time I hired a company called the tile guy. He did a poor job of grouting and some of the caulking around the bath and we now know that he ripped us off.
We tried to call him over and over and over and he never returned any of our calls. Last year we moved into a new house and we were referred by our neighbor to a company called mostwantedlandscaping, he did our front porch in flagstone. He only charged us for his time and we know this because we went to the tile store with him to buy the materials.
He new the best places to get the cheapest rates on materials. He did such great job and we eventually hired him to do our bathroom in ceramic tile.
Monetary Loss: $900.
