More about me (The Early Years)

 

I started my career when I was 17 years old by getting a job at The Italian Tile Warehouse, in New Haw, Surrey; this was only because my parents were fed up with me hanging around the house doing nothing and they knew the owner.

 

At first I started working as a labourer for the boss mixing adhesive and cutting and grouting tiles and when we had no jobs I worked in the shop selling tiles. As my knowledge grew, I gave advice on what tiles may look best and what kind of materials are required for different types of tiles, rooms and substrates.

 

I also worked in the warehouse making up and checking orders for collection or delivering them to customers.

 

So after a while as my confidence grew i began to price up work and then complete all aspects of tiling through the Company with a labourer of my own.

 

After working for The Italian Tile Warehouse for eight years, the boss decided that it was time for the Company to stop offering a fixing service and for me to go it alone. I was a bit nervous but quickly realised that I enjoyed being my own boss (although I wasn't prepared for the tax bill!!!). It felt good to do the same job and to go home when the work was finished rather than having to return to the shop to finish the day behind the counter.

 

I have now been self-employed for some twelve years and enjoy the freedom and responsibility.

 

During this time I have built up considerable experience and expertise and pride myself in being able to undertake any tiling job whilst maintaining the high standards I have set myself and that my customers have come to expect.

 

As a family man, I work 9-5, Monday to Friday with estimates after work three evenings most weeks.
