5.0 Roy R. San Francisco, CA

Iâ m very satisfied with the quality of their work. They did exactly what I requested and a bit more, making sure that my hardwood floors were protected and cleaned up properly once the work was completed. I would recommend Appel Tile. Their prices are fair and theyâ re easy to work with.

5.0 Regina F. San Francisco, CA

Jim was incredibly responsive -- emailed/called me back promptly and gave me a very reasonable quote after I sent him a photo of the project. The project was tiling an area in the shower that had to be ripped out to fix a plumbing problem. He was able to do the project two days after I had contacted him. He and his coworker were punctual and did an excellent job. I definitely would hire Jim for future tiling projects.

5.0 Kathy C. Mill Valley, CA

Very readable price for a small tile job on my stairway up to my front door.

5.0 Anthony W. San Francisco, CA

This company is small but mighty. They replaced our glass mosaic tile that had partially fallen off the walls in various places. This tile is very difficult to apply from scratch & even more difficult to fit it with tile remaining input walls. They did it. They also cleaned & resealed the terra cotta floor tiles in our solarium & did an outstanding job. I highly recommend them. Their rates are also reasonable.

5.0 Dieter M. San Francisco, CA

Jim installed ceramic tile over old brick around our fireplace. His tile layout was thoughtful with a good aesthetic sense. He worked cleanly, accurately, and efficiently together with Manuel. We are more than happy with the final result and would definitely hire him again for similar projects!

5.0 Maureen S. San Francisco, CA

Our bathroom floor is beautiful! We couldnâ t have asked for a better job!

5.0 Keith R.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
