    "Jay was hired to tile 3 bathrooms for us including 3 full showers, a laundry room, and a toilet. He was always punctual and was working long hours in order to meet his promised timelines. He used only premium materials and tools. The end result far exceeded our expectations in every way. Watching him work, it was easy to tell he is a master of his trade, cutting tiles with extreme precision and turning crooked walls into straight and beautiful masterpieces. He is clearly a perfectionist and took great pride in his work. He gave us a very itemized quote before taking on the job and despite all the challenges and setbacks, he was able to complete the job for less than what he initially quoted. I cannot recommend Jay enough. You will not be disappointed."

    "We have never had a new bathroom in our 38 years of married life so were very excited about finally getting the bathroom of our dreams. We chose porcelain tiles from Heritage Tiles and employed the services of Jay from Can Do Tiling to lay the tiles – about 38 square metres - Jay had come to our home previously to view the job and quote, at this time we also showed Jay the tiles – Jay promised us a beautiful bathroom and extolled his experience and expertise.
    Jay began tiling in December 2011 and it immediately became frustratingly apparent he was treating our job as an “inbetweener” with several jobs on the go at the same time.

    From the moment Jay cut the first tile he complained incessantly about the hardness of the tiles, in his words “ The Indians overcook the tile, they make the tile too fast to make more money” he said that over and over, in fact every time he stuffed up another tile it was the tiles fault, never his!

    I noticed at the start Jay’s tile cutter had a broken support bar and he had to support the 600 x 600 tile with his foot to keep the tile level, I am sure this had some relevance to the chipped and crooked cut Jay was achieving so offered to cut some timber to support the tile – I was curtly told the support had nothing to do with achieving a clean cut and we were back to the Indians overcooking – see above.

    After Jay had broken and stuffed about 2 boxes of tiles I phoned Heritage and spoke to a stone mason employed there, he had some important advise for Jay so I passed the phone over – immediately Jay got on the defensive and told the stone mason he had been tiling for 8 years and if he could not cut the tile no one could!

    Eventually Jay managed to break the tile cleanly by breaking them his knee (I won’t bore you with the sore knee story). By this time he had laid out the tiles for the shower floor, I noticed and pointed out that 2 tiles were chipped, Jay said since I noticed the chips would re cut the tiles!!!

    The next major problem arose when Jay could not cut 2 holes for the shower mixers – these holes were close to the edge and around 90mm in diameter. After successfully managing to smash another 12 tiles Jay gave up and said it was impossible to make the cuts. I had heard the vibration against the tile whilst Jay was trying to cut the holes using a serrated diamond edge cutting disc and thought it was no wonder the tiles kept breaking.

    On Boxing Day I went to Mitre Ten and found a similar disc to Jar’s except this one had a continuous rim – no vibration I guessed. I took this disc home and successfully cut the 2 holes myself on the first try. I telephoned Jay to say the holes were cut and he said he would come maybe the next day. When he did turn up he was far from impressed that I had cut these impossible to cut holes. When I said it was easily done and asked him if he agreed he was using the wrong disc he immediately got very upset and aggressive. His words to me “no I don’t agree I use the wrong disc and you insult me, I been tiling for 8 years and you say cut the tile easy. You insult me. You not worthy of my work)

    Great!! Just bloody GREAT!! You can imagine how that went down! We had put up with this guy for weeks! We had put up with all his mistakes, had a stack of 22 broken tiles, had put up with his whinging and moaning, put up with his casual work attitude and lack of care! He cut up my new concrete floor area with his cutting disc. We fed this precious **** morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. And what do we get in return a ****ty job from a loser tiler. And he walks off the job with a “ your not worthy of my work!!!

    We would not recommend Jay to anyone ever and wish we had never met him of heard or heard of him.

    Can Do Tiling – I think NOT!!!!

    We had the job completed by another tiler who did not chip or break a single tile. He said all of Jay’s tiles were lipping, that he had used spacers ranging from 1mm to 3mm, and had not used the approved method of fixing the tile to the wall.

    The manager from Heritage Tiles also viewed Jay’s work and agreed the workmanship was poor

    "We are thrilled with the recent tiling that Jay did for us. The tiles were matched beautifully, no shortcuts were taken, the quality of the materials used of the best quality, the work was done consistently, punctually and well. Throughout the process, from quoting to completion, Jay was friendly, polite, helpful, respectful of our property and ourselves, and professional. Jay advised us on several matters which was invaluable, our home was cleaned up every day and care taken to meet our needs around timing etc. Jay is a tiler that we would hire again in an instant and would recommend 100 to anybody who wants extra care and attention to detail taken with their work. Our finished product is absolutely perfect and of the highest quality."

Only thing I found was that he was quite busy so you have to appreciate that he can not start tomorrow.

    "Jay did an excellent job of tiling our bathroom and we are extremely happy with the result. Jay was punctual, extremely friendly and courteous, and he kept the place tidy too. He had good communication and kept us informed about what was happening at each stage and how long it was going to take. During the quote process he was the only tradesman to pick up on a sizing issue that would have made using our first choice of tiles unworkable, and was kind enough to come around to check that our alternative would work. We would not hesitate to recommend Jay to anyone who is considering him, and would rate him as one of the top tradesmen we have had help us build our new house (and we have seen a LOT of different tradesmen). And looking at his other feedback it seems Jay's service is always this good, great stuff Jay."

    "We found Jay and Michael to be excellent tradesmen - the job was by no means easy and they have produced a first class result. Great communication and willing to go the extra mile to achieve a great finished product. Briiliant clean up at the end of each day. May not be the cheapest option around but you certainly get what you pay for. I would not hesitate to recommend Jay and Michael to any one looking at a getting an A+ job completed on any tiling job.

    "I have spent over 10 years in various building trades and I was was not happy with both Jay's attitude or his level of sloppy workmanship. Ours was a relatively big job, around 100 sq m of tiles. On both the lower level and the mid level the start lines were incorrectly set out with the result that all the tiles in the entire house are not parallel to the walls. There are numerous places where small slithers of tile have been used to fill gaps because of not enough time spent in planning the layout. There are numerous places where ajoining tiles have not been laid even close to flush

    (more than 2mm height difference) This was not the fault of warped tiles - I checked. More time and care should have been taken in this regard. All the floors had been professionally sanded and levelled prior to the start of tiling. When I asked if he could work to better tolerances he replied that he was, quote "finding it hard to like me" - not at all professional. In some places the tiles were cut up to 9mm away from the skirting boards - way to much to achieve a nice silicon line. Overall not a good experience and a company I would not recommend to anyone.

    "Jay tiled our bathroom (walls and floor), and the laundry (floor).
    Apart from the standard of the work which was 1st class, Jay had excellent customer service skills. He always communicated well to let us know exactly when he was coming and how long he expected the job to take.
    He took great pride in his work and was not happy with the shading of the grout as it dried. He arranged to come back and seal it at no extra charge.
    We can definitely recommend him and his assistant Michael. They did a great job.

    "We looked at a number of tilers recommended through tile shops. Jay was highly recommended, came in with a good price and showed expertise when talking to us about the job. When he started he made sure we understood what he was doing and why. He was easy to deal with and completed the job on time with no extra costs. He even came back to complete a small section of tiling in the kitchen area for no cost.

    We're really happy with the job he did for us."

    "Wow. Finally a great tiler who did a fantastic job. We found Jay on No Cowboys after three bad experiences with three different "cowboy" tilers in a row. We were very apprehensive about tiling anything ever again! Jay was very professional to deal with and kept us well informed as he performed the job. He turned up when he said he would, left everything clean and tidy at the end of each day, and completed the job in the time frame he said he would from the very beginning . I should point out that the tiling layout was not straight forward (laid on a diagonal with a curved border around it). Initially we thought his prices might have been a bit on the high side but you really do get what you pay for - a quality job we are delighted with. Thanks Jay."

    "We used Jay with our last house renovation and acquired his services for a second time for our new property. His work was superb once again. He\'s efficient, professional, clean (always tidies up after the job) - cannot fault his work. He was happy to work on the weekend to get the job done for us. We wouldn\'t use anyone else."
