Manchester tiler named as leading professional
Rick Duriez, of Walkden, has won the national 'Tiler of the Month' accolade from TilerWorld, the free web site for tilers and their customers. Rick was chosen for his tiling quality and high standards of customer service, shown by reviews posted on TilerWorld alongside customer ratings.
Rick carries out all types of domestic and commercial tiling throughout the Greater Manchester area, from kitchens and conservatories to bathrooms and wet rooms. He has more than 25 years' experience, bolstered by formal training courses from such industry suppliers as BAL. His TilerWorld profile shows many customer testimonials. In Salford, Joyce D. is quite succinct: "The best tiler ever. Would use him again and would recommend him to anybody."
Rob W. in Manchester, goes into detail: "Rick tiled my hallway in classic Victorian style using small black and white tiles with an intricate border around the edge. His superb skills, knowledge and extreme patience paid off, leaving me with the most fantastic floor that even the postman has commented on."
Martin B., in Irlam, describes Rick: "Very pleasant and reliable worker who takes great pride in his job. An absolute perfectionist. Couldn't find a fault in the tiling work that he carried out for us. Would highly recommend him. 10/10."
Back in Manchester, Jeanette B. goes beyond praise, saying, "This was the third time we have used Rick and he did a brilliant job in our kitchen. No problems whatsoever, very professional he works hard. We will be using him again."
As for Rick Duriez himself, he says modestly: "There are many fantastic tilers out there who provide a great service and deserve recognition." He finds TilerWorld more than useful, seeing it as a service that, "can benefit all concerned." Apart from its value to customers in selecting tilers, he likes the forums: "I dip in to view, as I am very interested in how others are all dealing with these challenging times."
TilerWorld remains free for both tilers and customers. A consumer can list up to 20 local professionals, compare other customers' ratings and request quotes for their own tiling from up to five tilers. In addition, consumers can browse through photographs of completed projects uploaded by individual tilers. Leaving their own rating for a tiler found on Tilerworld also earns them free entry into a valuable monthly draw.
