    "Have just had my bathroom tiled by DG Black & Son and I couldn’t be happier with the results. They were punctual both days they came, informed us what they would do at each step, confirmed we were happy with what they were doing and were very professional to deal with. They left the place tidy and cleaned up after themselves as well as putting enough sheets down to protect carpets and flooring. I’m so glad I chose them for my tiling and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and recommend them to friends and family."

    "As with many kitchens in most new-builds we had painted plasterboard on the walls. Around the sink and hob the walls were becoming damaged through constant cleaning off of splashes and marks. Having the walls tiled seemed the most sensible option. I picked DG Black and Son from TrustATrader due to their good rating and wasn't disappointed. They were responsive, prompt, kept to the quote, worked fast and were professional. My kitchen looks SO much better. I would recommend them without hesitation."

    "Dave and David tiled my kitchen floor, whilst they managed to overcome the tricky levels and tile anomalies admirably, they failed to mix up the repeated tile design very well, which happened to be the last thing I mentioned to David before they started. With 10 tile designs (20 if you rotated them) it was easily avoidable. They felt they had underpriced the floor as they didn't realise how uneven it was and I had the feeling they were rushing a little to complete the job in the day that led to a few oversights in the repeats. Most disappointing is the fact they didn't want to put it right despite offering them additional money to rectify. Now I'm left a little underwhelmed with my new floor."

    DG Black & Son's reply:
    Hello Chris, I’m sorry to hear that you are underwhelmed with your new kitchen and diner floor as we both thought it looked fantastic! This was never our intention as we pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of workmanship on all of our jobs. Before we left your property we were assured by your partner that she was very satisfied by the work we had carried out and not to worry about the repeated pattern that we had overseen as there would be a dining table covering the area. Not once did we mention the price that was estimated or ask for any further money. I would usually be more than happy to replace any tiles that a customer is not happy with, but due to the nature of your correspondence once the job completed, I did not feel comfortable revisiting your property.

    "I was very pleased with the work that was done and I would definitely use Mr Black again."

    DG Black & Son's reply:
    Thanks for the great review Teresa, the shower area looks much better after adding the new Tiling and shower rail to the already existing half Tiling. Hope we can help again in the future. Thanks, Dave & David.
