Chris tiled our wall and floors in the bathroom in August 2013, and even now walking in there I find myself still thinking 'wow'! Our walls were very uneven and rough, but you wouldn't think it looking at the end product, fabulous talent. I would recommend Chris to anyone, he is obviously very good at what he does and also very reasonable.

Chris did the tiling for our new build house including 3 bathrooms and a 130 square meter floor with large format tiles nearly a meter wide. He has done very good work and really seemed to know what he was doing, he said he has been in the trade for 20 years and it shows. He is very particular about his tiling, very precise and overall I am really pleased with it. He worked quickly too, putting in long hours and even working weekends. He was very good and without a doubt I would use him again. He is a fairly quiet chap so just gets on with the job, he let me know if there was any issues but generally he was very low key and low maintenance. I have nothing at all negative to say about him, he turned up when he said and the quality of his work was great, especially with those large tiles that were tricky to fit. I am very pleased with all of his work and would certainly recommend him to others.

You've done such a lovely job - I can't tell you how pleased I am with it Chris. It's such a lovely surprise to find a tradesman who can actually do what he is supposed to be able to do.....and WELL! Yay! I'm so over the moon!
Thank you so,so much.

Chris installed a slate floor and glass effect wall tiles in our new kitchen.
What a super job! It looks better than I ever imagined. I recommend Chris to anyone needing a tiler and will be getting him back to do our bathroom!

Absolutely superb work - excellent advice, and great care taken in laying our tiles, to give us brilliant, beautiful floors in our kitchen, conservatory and bathroom - always the first thing visitors comment on, and a constant source of delight to us. Thank you, Chris, for doing such a wonderful job for us - can't recommend you highly enough.

What a lovely man. turned up on time. Made great suggestions that not only saved me money but looked really good too. My experienced builder who knows everyone now uses him as he was so impressed.
He's busy but organises his time well and is incredibly fast and reasonably priced. He is very knowledgable and helpful.

Chris is a thoroughly nice guy. Reliable, polite, efficient and a very good tiler. He has just finished tiling 58m of my kitchen, conservatory and dining area. The work is first class and I would recommend Chris to anyone. His quoted price was detailed and the final invoice was the same price as the quote.
Whilst working in my house I was comfortable to leave Chris with the keys to my house and for him to work away on his own.

Chris has done 2 tricky jobs for me. His patience, product knowledge, craftmanship and unswerving aim for perfection is outstanding. Plus he is reasonably priced AND quick. Complete legend. I wouldn't have the slightest hesitation in recommending him.

Chris who is running Tarka Tiling is an absolute legend, an artist and a true professional. His work is out of this world fantastic! If you want your tiling work to be done with extra speed, precision and with an engeneering level of perfection you call him to do it. I am so happy with his work that I have no words. Its so hard to find a professional who takes responsibility for their work and who takes pride in a job very well done. Chris lives up to the highest standards in promptness, speed of delivery, precision and an eye for symmetry.
I have chosen very difficult large tiles for my bathroom walls nd floors and asked for an anal 1mm partition between the tiles. So basically there was no room for mistakes. Chris just got on wih the work, didnt make excuses" (like previous tilers did), rather he gave solutions to the problems with regards to the crooked plaster bored. He just sorted them out and gave me the most beautiful tiling job I have ever seen. He did it in two days while others quoted 3 weeks for the job!!!When he felt like he needed a bit more time in the end of the day, he stayed in the evening and finished it regardless of his private commitments.
He and his work is everything one could dream of when it comes to tiling. I couldnt recommend his work and his professionalism more strongly. I am so greatful to meet such an awesome person with so much talent who has an eye for detail and who strives for perfection. So refreshing to meet a person like him in todays fast and furious industry style. If you want an honest person with mad tiling skills you will do yourself a favour by hiring Chris and Tarka Tiling.
