A well laid tile backsplash not only looks great in your kitchen or bath, but will protect the walls and be easy to clean.
 
 
 
Tile sizes  Most backsplashes consist of 12 x 12, 4 x4, or 6 x 6 , with the latter being the most popular.  An accenting tile can be placed between the tiles for a custom look.  An edging tile can also be used.
 
Tile finishes  There are many choices in this area.  A matte finish will give a modern, somewhat european feel, while a glazed tile relays a more retro look.  Glass can be either an accent, or the bulk of the backsplash. 
 
Tile Types  Ceramic and porcelin are good choices.  Marble, or granite will give you a "richer" look, but they can be etched or stained if not properly cared for.  Try to avoid travertine in kitchens, as certain juices and alcohols may permenantly stain them.
 
Shopping for tile  We carry a limited amount of tile choices on hand because they are constatly changing.  Fell free to pick out your own tile from whomever you wish, and we will install it for you.

Before Diversified Services/Columbia's Handyman tile contractors arrive at your place, we ask that you do the following to better help us and avoid mishaps.

We may bring a very limited supply of samples to your place when we give you the estimate. You are encouraged to seek out other sources so you find just the right tile for you. We will give you advice as to which size and compostion flooring you should choose based upon the installation area.

Please keep the area free of debris and other hazards. Remove all breakables from the area. We will remove fixtures, receptacle and switch covers as necessary.

It may not be necessary to remove the exiting flooring (we will inform you of this), but if it is, you can save some money by removing it yourself. Just make sure the result is smooth and level. We can remove the flooring for you at a reasonable price.

Please note: If we are laying down tile, the tiling process involves letting the floor cure overnight, followed by another evening for the grout to cure. You cannot enter the room during any of these curing states. If we are laying wood/laminate, you can usually walk on it immediatly after installation.

Please Note: You need have the wood/laminate in the heated or cooled part of your house for at least a full day before we install it.
