Hey all,

We are looking for someone to come out and install tiles on our kitchen floors (about 200 sq ft) and also on shower/tub walls. We also need a person to install about 1,000 sq ft of hardwood flooring.

We'll appreciate recommendations on people you've had good experiences with. Thanks!

You could always do it yourself. Do a chalk line X going from corner to corner diagonally. Buy a bag of those plastic spacers, the store can tell you which size. Start at the center and work your way to the edges, cut to fit on the last rows. If you are doing fancy, then sketch the design on the floor and cut pieces to fit. The adhesive is forgiving, it gives you time to correct your mistakes. Hardwood flooring is more forgiving, a lot easier to cut the pieces.

Ask your neighbors, coworkers, church members. Your job is kind of small, which will make it tough to find a contractor right now. However when the market goes quiet around the holidays, it should be no problem.

Dusty is right, you can do it yourself. Get a good book on laying tile and another on hardware floor installation and you can do it.

I used to Jewell Interiors a few years ago for tile in a bathroom and laundry room. They were excellent.
