Richard Kandiyeli is a true craftsman/artist in his tile work. He was able to understand what we wanted, make suggestions so that it would work well in the space allowed and completed the project in a very professional manner. There are several aspects of his work that were outstanding compared to any other contractor I have ever used. When he left for the day, his area was ALWAYS totally spotless, he was precise in all his work from his contract to laying the tile. We enjoyed having Richard and Adam around and completely trusted them to hold down the fort if we had to go somewhere. They are respectful and courteous to the other contractors and bent over backward to accommodate us. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.
Testimonials should be short and sweet. That is EXACTLY what my experience was with Kandiyelli Tile. Rich made the elapsed time of the job short and the outcome sweet!! He is a real craftsman in an age when they are rare. I found him fair, priced right and a real person standing proudly behind his work that was EXCELLANT. I sincerely reccomend him to everyone.
We had the fortune of using Kandiyeli Tile for our recent condo tiling (foyer, hall, kitchen, dining, and living room). Because we live in another state, and had a short window for our project, it was very important to us that the work begin, and most importantly, end on time. Kandiyeli Tile not only started on the designated date (actually, a day early, for the purpose of delivering product), they finished three days early! What a bonus for us!
The entire project was handled with the utmost professionalism. Our residence was left clean and tidy at the end of the day, and on the final day (grout day!), our furniture was brought back in and set up for us---and the completed job was absolutley beautiful!
We have plenty more projects on the horizon, and look forward to working with Richard, Adam, and Abel again.
I've had two projects done by Richard Kandiyeli and his crew. I would have had two more done before these, but he was in so much demand at that time, I wasn't able to schedule him. A acquaintance had recommended him as someone who does outstanding work. Well, when I *was* able to finally land him to do a project, he confirmed all the good words about himself and his team!
Our first project was a kitchen floor. Richard and his team (a family member or two, I believe) installed a floor of imported Italian porcelain tile. Richard's team did a beautiful and exacting job. I'm one of those eagle-eyed people who can tell if something is 1/32" off and from a distance, and Richard did not disappoint. The flooring came out wonderfully, and everything was spaced properly, even with uneven cabinetry.
The second project was a year later after we installed new kitchen cabinetry. We need some work to square off the floor with the new cabinetry, but more importantly, we had purchased some beautiful tumbled stone tiles (along with some custom painted ceramic decorative tiles). for a backsplash and we needed that installed. Again, Richard did a wonderful job with this. He even suggested a cool look to one corner or the job, doing a small 45 degree angle that finished the look perfectly.
I am DYING to show you folks pictures of his work, both floor and countertop. So I tell you what. If you point your browser to:
you can see a little video we did of the kitchen. All that tilework is Richard's!
Richard and team ALWAYS arrive when they say they will. On-time. Getting the job done right the first time. And he's a hell of a friendly guy too. Pricing was just right. He doesn't try to take advantage of you. Don't go down to the big chain stores and take a crap shoot when you can pay in the same general range and get a master who has excellent quality and workmanship AND you can easily communicate with him and his crew.
I recommend Richard highly for any of your tiling needs. We plan to use him this coming year for a rock facade in our dining room!
Kandiyeli Tile was very helpful and professional throughout the complete process. From the on site estimate to the completed project. This was a custom job that required help and opinions from a professional, -that is what we got. The entire staff was friendly and willing to go the extra mile. All at a good price!
Kandiyeli Tile is the best tile service company I have had the pleasure to do business with. They far exceeded my expectations. They were very prompt and clean. They were the best value for the project. They did almost 3,000 S.F. of flooring, two bathroom remodels and all new counters and back splash in a very large country kitchen. I would recommend Kandiyeli Tile to ANYONE.
Richard Kandiyeli is a hard worker with long experience. He knows enough to point out the pitfalls that you may not have considered in doing a job. He comes every day till the job is finished and his work is excellent. He stands by the jobI highly recommend him.job done: 4000 square feet of interior/exterior flagstone
