Hello! I’m Kevin, also known as NW Tile Guy. I started tile when I was 16 living in Tucson, AZ. I have worked all over, including Seattle WA and across the southern coastline of California in the Malibu and Venice Beach areas. My work was featured in Elle Decor Magazine, I received a write up in Vogue Magazine for my tile work, and I had three jobs featured on HGTV.
I study TCNA standards and apply all regulations when working in this wonderful and artistic trade. One of the problems with the tile industry when hiring a contractor, is that you do not have to pass a test to become a “licensed” tile installer. This creates a very large grey area when sorting out who to hire for your project. How do you know this person is right for your installation? Is it price? Or is it knowledge?
