Boomer did our bathroom (shower, pony wall, back splash and shelves) and our kitchen walls and countertops. I cannot say enough good things about his work. It is absolutely beautiful! I get goose bumps just thinking about it. He is artistic, helpful and listens well. I highly recommend him for remodels (and new construction). Hiring a professional tile installer was the best decision we made. Note: he doesn't do the tear-outs, but this is the easy stuff you can do to save money.
