Where do I start? First of all, Frank is an extremely knowledgeable and personable guy. He’s great at bouncing ideas off of, and draws on his years of experience in providing great advice. He’s not afraid to tell you, “That’s not what I would recommend”. As a homeowner, we don’t always know what’s best, and it is very comforting to be able to draw on his experience and advice. He’s got a great eye! 

Second, Frank has meticulous attention to detail and is a professional tradesman that calms my perfectionist nature. Watching him work through every detail of the job is refreshing. He treated our home as if it was his own. That’s the best compliment I could give to anyone doing work on our home. He’s always on time (rare, I know), communicates wonderfully, and is extremely clean. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Lastly, his work is incredible! He installed two backsplashes and a beautiful Moroccan floor in our Laguna Beach bungalows.  If anyone knows how wonky 1950’s homes can be, you will appreciate the patience and expertise required to complete these types of improvements. 

Rarely do I recommend a contractor of any sorts, and I can’t remember ever penning a testimonial, but trust me – you won’t be disappointed!

We would like to highly recommend Frank and Kelly of Old World Tile and Stonecraft to anyone needing highly skilled and beautifully finished tile work.

We recently have been refurbishing a house and contracted them to do the tile work. The bid was complete and easily understood. They even added some finishing choices. The work was done on schedule and the result is fabulous.

No mess no fuss, just a beautiful new shower.

Frank is a rare find! He is an organized perfectionist and a man of his word, who does high quality work, has an eye for detail, and treated our remodel as if it was his own. We appreciated his respect of our opinions and would offer his advice when asked for it. He kept the area clean and the dogs loved him! Frank also went the extra mile in literally every way he could.  We absolutely recommend him to everyone! 5 stars!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Frank over the last year on various projects. Frank’s craftsmanship, attention to detail and overall quality of work are outstanding. Frank and Kelly have completed 3.5 bathrooms, a kitchen, fireplace and re-tiled a beautiful entryway in our homes.

During each project completed by Kelly and Frank, the entire process was seamless and they really went the extra mile to create a beautiful end product.

My wife and I give Old World Tile our highest recommendation. Thanks for making our renovations such a success, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!

Great demeanor and work ethic. Punctual, does everything he says and he loves dogs – which is a BIG plus. Calls and confirms appointments. Great communication. Super clean.

– Debbie MacDonald, Laguna Niguel (CA)

Frank MIller of Old World Tile was very professional, punctual and congenial. The tile work he did in our guest bathroom shower was exceptional. He gave us a quote before he started the job and that is exactly what it was upon conclusion of the job. He had no problem with our two dogs and was very considerate of our privacy. His craftsmanship is outstanding and we would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a top notch job done for a fair price. Also left the bathroom cleaner than it was before he started the job.

(Excerpt from a thank you card)

I am so sorry I missed the last day you were at our house. We are enjoying the beautiful floor you laid. Thank you for your exquisite workmanship and all the other tasks you helped us with. Mark enjoyed his conversations with you as well!

Wishing you all the best for the New Year.
