    Hi we only have a small bathroom but the tiles around the bath are old and horrid so we are looking for recommendations for a good reliable not to expensive tiler to tile around our bath and toilet.
    Thanks for your recommendations.

    Thanks for the recommendation but after several arranged times for him to come and look at the job and several times he didn't turn up, when he did eventually turn up he showed little to no interest and told me he would email a quote that was over a week ago and still nothing, so i am afraid i would not recommend him for anything and even if i get a quote now i would not use him.

    Very useful to know I will talk to him - if he hasn't got the time to do the quote himself he would usually ask me and if he hasn't got time to do the work he would usually tell you that he has too much on - sorry about the inconvenience.

    It never ceases to amaze me how many of these one man bands actually refuse paid work and treat their potential clients poorly. They then complain when they go bust.

    It is a shame and i only posted this in response to the recommendation, anyway i have managed to convince the misses i can do it, i have done some tiling before so fingers crossed it will all be good in the end.

    Take your time (and uncross your fingers) and you should be able to cope, I'm sure.

    30 years of a one man band and not gone bust yet - it is difficult through as jobs are like buses, three come at once and everyone wants their job done that week, There is no intention to treat customers poorly but the pressure of work can sometimes cause oversights and errors - apologizes to any potential customers please send Arthur a personal message if you want 'Lewis plumbing' to come and see a job and he doesn't come round cause he's crap at arranging things but brilliant as plumbing, let Arther know and she'll kick his butt.
