Meticulous and great attention to every detail. Sal did beautiful tile work in my kitchen backsplash and fireplace surround. Will definitely call him for our next project and highly recommend him for any tile project you may have.

5.0 Brett W. Oak Park, IL

Quick and responsive. Had three other tile contractors ghost before finding Sal. He did the job quickly and professionally

4.0 Meg M. Chicago, IL

We worked with Sal, and the new backsplash looks great. I knocked off one star for how long it took to finish up - there was about a week when it was nearly finished and we were waiting for Sal to come back and do the last bits. The finished product is very good. Overall I'm happy with the backsplash and would use them again.

5.0 Iwona M. Glenview, IL

I heard about the company from a friend who also got some work done by them and was talking so greatly about it. He came alone, he did my bathroom and my kids bathroom. Works very neat, yet very very quickly, he was done in a week. I was very impressed with the work! Definitely will hire him again and forgot to mention the most important part, he gives a 10 year warranty unlike the other companies that I called. Will definitely be calling him again if I need anymore work done! Great job!

5.0 James V. Elgin, IL

Sal installed tile in our kitchen, powder room, and entryways and did a good job. He was super nice and easy to work with. His pricing is totally fair. I really appreciate his help and strongly recommend him. He does good work.

5.0 Norma H. Addison, IL

Sal is old school taught! Trained by a relative since he was a teenager in Italy, he has carried his skills here to give you the best quality instillation of all types of tile. He just finished our basement floor tile. My husband and I joke that what once was a basement has turned into a “billiard room.” He pays attention to every detail, laying every tile as if it was the only tile. He is very sweet, easy to work with and reasonable in his pricing. The last thing I would like to share, “HIRE HIM FOR YOUR NEXT TILE JOB! You won’t be sorry.

5.0 Chris J. Chicago, IL

Sal did excellent work, with attention to detail and at a very reasonable price. He was referred to us by another contractor who originally priced the job higher. Sal was also clean and courteous, as well as upfront about any issues. The new backsplash he placed makes our kitchen look 10 times better! Money well spent!

5.0 Alex F. Elmhurst, IL

Sal did an amazing job with a big job that was a gut rehab of our master bathroom. Sal was initially contracted to demo and install new tile floor and shower. He did such an amazing job that we contracted him to complete a second shower in our house. Sal was very friendly and his quality of work is superb. I will be using him again when we get around to updating our other bathrooms in the house.

5.0 Carlos M. Chicago, IL

Sal did a great job. When ever I had a question he was quick to answer thru text and would let me know when he was on his way. Very professional and a great attitude.

5.0 Richard K. Elmhurst, IL

Great to see some one take pride in their work.

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.
