This installer is remarkable at installation and best of all really takes pride in his work in the same way we take pride in the selection of our stone. It is difficult to find installers with a passion for installing natural stone. Here is our Black and White Chevron pattern being installed.He dry laid it measured out the area and then started the process. So many at least 80% of “so called” professionals just install box to box, sheet after sheet. Just throw it down. No checking by dry laying to stand back and think “perfect” then install. When you throw it down box to box, if their is a rouge sheet that is darker it will really stand out, but not until you have finished and it is too late. That is why the dry laying of natural stone is vital. To ensure the product is correct prior to installing. You can see his process on his Instagram Feed and follow him on Facebook.

You can read it in Dustin’s reviews “This is a guy who pays great attention to detail”. Love installers, craftsman, car mechanics anyone with a passion for what they do. It gives them an edge over every one else as they do it because they want to not because they have to.

Wish he lived near us.

Carrara Venato 4x12 PolishedComing out of the shower customer created a double vanity using Carrara Venato 4×12″ Polished Subway Tile.

What can we say or comment. Very little. The installation is incredible. They have taken their time, blended the veining to insure that their are no “clumps” of Gray veining or white blocks. The tile has been well mixed and carefully selected. With the consumer giving the installer a range of tiles considered acceptable. The rest discarded. Over ordered by 20% to create a HGTV bathroom.

In short that is the trick. A bit of hands on at the start. Only “YOU”. Only you know the look “YOU” want. With one hundred and fifty square feet of tile you could create multiple looks. You should design and layout a small section, perhaps five square feet on the floor and then communicate talk to the installer about the design and flow of the veining. If you have paid for a qualified person he would do all of this before installing. He would ask questions like “How do you want the veining to flow?” If he is not asking this, I recommend reviewing his reviews and looking into his work more carefully. He maybe a wonderful tile contractor. Absolutely the best. But this maybe his first natural stone install. You do not want to be this guys learning project.  Your bathroom is not his school of learning.
