Work Description: Install granite/marble tile on the kitchen floor.

Comments: To be honest I never heard about 2 mile tile before. In a way you could say it was a blessing to have Kevin do the job. As a disabled veteran of 2 foreign Wars I wanted to replace to vinyl in the kitchen for years. I had been planning on another installer. Until that fell through I found Second mile tile by fate or accident. The job the did totally transferred the kitchen and I'm so greatful they did an Outstanding job. If you need quality and honesty with a blessing call Kevin.

Work Description: Replace bottom 4 tiles of walk-in bathroom shower on two walls and dry wall closet where it leaked through

Comments: Awesome solid work. We are having them back over next month after we paint to have them clean, seal & coat our Travertine tile floors ~ 800 square feet. Kevin even tested the cleaning solution on a few tiles to make sure it was worth it, plus they offered to do a few little extras around the house while they were at it for a very reasonable cost.

Work Description: I needed cracked stone tiles and grout seams in a shower wall repaired, and mortar seams in the capstones of a masonry fence repaired.

Comments: Kevin and his helper were superb. Timely, knowledgeable, highly competent with true attention to detail, they are some of the best contract workers I've dealt with. They finished the work, to perfection, on both projects in a single day. Energetic, careful, and very pleasant to work with, I will hire them again for another much bigger job in the next few weeks. Thanks Kevin!

Work Description: Installation of 18" by 18" Travertine in bedroom

Comments: I purchased Travertine natural stone tiles from Bedrosians, and was in search of a professional licensed contractor for installation. After getting several quotes, I chose Second Mile Tile. Kevin was very polite and easy to speak with. He was responsive to emails, phone calls and texts. He seemed very knowledgeable, and took the time to answer all of my many questions I had regarding Travertine. Kevin explained the entire installation process, and even made a suggestion which improved the look of the overall job, which was to install the baseboards out of Travertine. What a great suggestion! The installation was excellent, and the quality of grout and sealer he uses is top notch. I have received only positive comments from friends and family on the look of my new tiles. The price wasn't the cheapest, but it wasn't the most expensive either from all the bids that I received. In summary, I thought Kevin's workers did an excellent job over the two days it took to install the Travertine. They were highly skilled and left zero mess when they were done. I would highly recommend Kevin and his crew's services.

Work Description: I hired Second Mile Tile to remove discolored grout and re-grout my living room.

Comments: Second Mile Tile had the task of fixing another tile setter's poor work and my attempt to fix the problem. I was contacted within a couple of hours of submitting my request online, the job was scheduled for the next day and completed in one day. They can on time, worked quickly and professionally and cleaned up when the job was completed. I thought the price was a bit high, but I'm aware that fixing someone else's poor work is not preferable. I would definitely recommend this company and will hire them for future jobs.

Comments: I needed this job done quickly which is what I got! After having such bad experience with bad workmanship it was so refreshing to find Kevin. His tile man, Juan, did an outstanding job laying down my new travertine floor. He is meticulous and I could not be more pleased with the result. Fair pricing too. Highly recommend.

Kevin did a great job of repairing the area. In order to get the tiles to match, he took some up from under the refrigerator and put the new tiles there. A very smart idea.

I recommend his work.

Comments: Second Mile Tile, and Kevin Walding specifically, were wonderfully responsive to all of our inquiries and concerns.

The week long process went smoothly, was cleaned every night, and totally cleaned at completion. We were very pleased with their work ethic, their honesty, and the completed job. We recommend Second Mile Tile.

Work Description: Repair of a granite and stone patio table that had basically fallen into pieces.

Comments: Two repair men told me they could not repar it. The table top was very expensive. The weather really took a toll on it. Kevin told me he could fix it and the cost would be $350.00. The others quoted me way over $1,000.00. Kevin and his crew are very hard working people. He is honest and sincere. Best of all a Christian! You are welcome to call me if you have any doubts about hiring Second Mile Tile to do your work. They are a 5 STAR in my book. 714 352-5252

Comments: WOW! What an amazing job! I am extremely picky and the job was impeccable. Not only was the tile superbly laid but they kept the job site so clean and the job was finished in less time then quoted. I am rarely surprised to the upside but this company is phenomenal. The owner (Kevin) is extremely conscientious and his main objective was that I was happy with the results. I highly recommend Second Mile Tile.
