“Our experience with David was great. We had a woman that helping us pick out the tile for our new kitchen. We have to say she did a fantastic job with what she told us would go with our cabinets and countertop. We were hesitant at first but decided to go with what she told us would work and we are so pleased we did, our new subway backsplash and mosaic tile behind the stove is beautiful. The ones working in the back at the pickup counter are also very helpful. Would recommend David to anyone looking for tile.” – Andrea M.
