My wife and I highly recommend Collins Tile and Stone to anyone planning to remodel a bathroom. They were one of three contractors recommended to us by Architectural Ceramics in Alexandria, VA (a very helpful design resource and tile vendor). After discussing the proposed job with all three contractors and reviewing their submitted bids, we selected Collins Tile and Stone because of the high level of training routinely provided to their entire work staff, the level of Buck Collins’ personal expertise, the detail contained in their proposal and the fact that Collins would purchase all selected materials and in doing so, would pass on the savings that resulted from their buying power with vendors. Collins Tile and Stone started the job on the agreed to date and conducted a complete inventory of all delivered materials. Buck Collins personally reviewed the schedule and what was to be done in a joint meeting with his foreman and myself. He discussed starting times, storage options for materials, and answered all our questions. During the job, Buck sent an email each evening asking us to identify any issues we might have. Each morning he stopped by to review progress, outline what was to be done that day, address identified issues, answer any questions we might have and introduce us to each workman that was to be there that day. Although I was at the house about half the time during the job, Buck’s diligence ensured that we were completely comfortable leaving the workmen in the house alone. They were respectful of our home, cleaned up every day and laid plastic on the floor wherever they walked. They were personable, helpful, respectful and trustworthy. But most important was the skill level of the workforce. They know what they’re doing. They know how to solve problems. They know how to create a bathroom that not only looks terrific, but which will last for a very long time. If you want your bathroom done right, you’d be well advised to give Collins Tile and Stone a hard look. Collins Tile and Stone did a fabulous job on our bathroom and it looks terrific. We couldn’t be happier.
