I was born and raised in a small town north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania called Wampum. As the son of a custom homebuilder, I grew up in the shadows of backhoes and rooflines.
When I was 16 years old, I started my own career working for Ranier Devido Stone and Marble Company in New Castle, Pennsylvania. I began working as an architectural draftsman, creating layouts and designs in stone.
This played a big role in what was to come in my life. While working with granite, marble, and limestone, my interest in natural stone was piqued. The architectural drafting and layout techniques I learned formed the foundation for me to create and build.
At the age of 23, I began to work for my brother-in-law, drafting new homes. While his construction company would build the homes, I would install the tile. Soon the need arose for me to start my own tile installation business.
In June of 2001, after vacationing in the area, my wife and I decided to make the Eastern Shore our home. This is when Tile Guys was born. For the first four-and-a-half years, Tile Guys subcontracted work from a small, local tile store. On January 13, 2006, we decided to depart from the tile store and begin working towards building our own showroom.
Since the departure, Tile Guys has dramatically expanded in the scope of service we provide. We are serving the Eastern Shore in all of their tile and renovation needs.
I believe the success of our businesses is wholly based on simple Biblical principles such as, "treat others as you would have them treat you," and "do everything as though you are doing it for God himself." As a small, family-operated business, we look forward to serving you and your family in all of your home improvement needs.
