Best Tile is simply the "BEST". When I need advice about an installation or a product, I can always go to Dave, Justin or Charlie to either have the answer or they will get the answer and call me back. Dave Kocienda (supvr) knows more about tile and their Mapei and Aqua Mix products than I hope to know. And when I need advice, Dave is always there with the answers. And the tile design Ladies are also the best, very friendly and professional. (MY FAVORITE and HEADS ABOVE ALL THE REST IS "BEST")
