The progress on the backsplash is exceeding my expectations! The tile is absolutely gorgeous, looks great with the granite counter tops and is being installed with perfection. In less skilled hands this tile project has the potential to become a disaster...due to the single color and straight edges of the tile, there is very little room for error.
One can never underestimate the value of a skilled craftsman who takes pride in their work. When considering whom to hire, ask for references from people who have had similar work done and are satisfied with the completed job.
In addition, as work is in progress make sure you check in on the job, particularly at the start. If you are not going to be on site, even for a short while, make certain you can be reached at all times should questions or issues arise regarding the work being done.
It also helps if you like the people you hire...this makes what could be a painful process fun!
