Hi everyone. Looking for some indications of where I can get a decent deal on tiles and installation. I own a rental property that has now carpet, and I want to replace the carper in the living room/dinning room with tiles.
The total area should be around 600-650 sf, and I need an installer too.

Any suggestions would be very welcome. Primarily, I'm looking for a discount tile shop. I dont live in FL (Im a canadian) and will be visiting Sarasota for a few days only, and need that work done while Im there.

Thanks in advance.

I second Wholesale Tile - I buy ALL my tile there. They can recommend installers, too. Big box stores are a hassle and usually cost more.

Wholesale tile have great prices I always use them

I have used a guy call dennis from american tile services for a number of jobs, he's fast but more importantly he's accurate and a clean and a tidy worker and very reasonably priced his cell is 941 724 5848, explain your time restraints and I'm sure he'll accomodate. I've recommended him a number of times and he doesn't disappoint.

Whereabouts is your rental property, one of my employees is looking for a new rental property?

Take 75 North to the Brandpn exit (SR60). Go left (west) on 60 then left at first light and right into parking lot behind McDonalds. There is a place there called Floor & Decor and they have beaten any deal I have found anywhere else. It's a tile outlet warehouse.

Thanks everyone.. Great recommendations, and I contacted some of these stores to get started.
Im being quoted around $3.00 per sf (installation only). Is that the average?
