Gary recently returned to complete the finishing touches to our marble floors. He amazed me how keen an eye for detail he has, the marble abutted a natural stone wall; Gary scribed the tiles to give an amazing finish. Very rarely to you see this level of perfection from a tradesman, it was extremely impressive. We are often complemented on our floor and it's noted how much effort Gary put in to achieve an outstanding finish.

Once again great job in my kitchen, finished on time very neat job. I would only use Gary for any tiling great guy.
26 November 2023
We were beginning to despair about finding a tiler to tile our bathroom wall. After numerous no-shows, no-quotes and several exceptionally over-costed quotes, we found Gary's website. After reading the reviews, we rang and he came over to look over the work. The wall section is only 1m x 3.2m, but this is an old house, and nothing is straight. The wall bows in, the corners are wobbly and the floor isn't level. After a very thorough assessment and explanation of the work, which we really appreciated, Gary agreed to do the job. He also advised us regarding tiles which, again, we were very grateful for. He then provided a quote by the evening and we were very happy to accept.
We all understood the job would not be straightforward, but Gary soon realised it was even more of a challenge than even he'd thought. Rather than worry us, he took great care and time to meticulously plan the work out. He then explained how he would carry it out, and why.
This extremely high level of professionalism and care for his client continued throughout his work, with Gary taking time to explain the key steps and check we were happy, before he started each time.
Not only did Gary rectify the issue of the bowed wall, to create a tiled wall that was level both horizontally and vertically, he planned the tile pattern to meet the centre of the sink and also produce the most aesthetically pleasing pattern, and also carefully trimmed tile edges AND tile backs to make everything fit our wonky wall perfectly.
After advising us on grout, Gary also gave us the grout sticks to mull over. We'd liked his idea for a subtle, coloured grout but had been adamant white was safest and best. However, we quickly realised how right he was and the result is, as he said it would be, quite special.
Gary is a gentleman absolutely dedicated to his craft. He committed to this very awkward project with 110% and the result is the most beautiful tiling we have ever had done. We are quite literally stunned by the effort he has gone to, to provide us with the high quality finish we had hoped for, but never thought would be achieved because of the nature of the wall.
We now can't wait for the bathroom to be finished to see all the elements in place.
We cannot express enough gratitude to Gary for the considerable effort he has gone to on our behalf. When others look at the wall, they will see beautiful tiling at its best, but we will always see so much more.

Had a new kitchen installed recently and had Gary to do the tiling. He was a massive help as he recommended using grey grout to make the tiles pop. But also did a fantastic job at getting it finished. Very friendly and helpful and a competitive price!
3 August 2023
Clearly very experienced, Gary gained our confidence by discussing and recommending materials in advance and taking care over preparation and planning. While it was only a small job, the hand made tiles made it tricky to get right, but get it right he did.
17 July 2023
Gary tiled our bathroom and ensuite, we are building a forever home and the desire to achieve a high quality finish was reflected in Gary's work. The level of workmanship is exceptional, his knowledge and advice he gave us filled us with confidence. Gary was keen to do a great job and he certainly delivered. We are delighted we went with him as he's delivered everything we could hope for. We are extremely grateful that he takes so much pride in his work, he's a highly skilled tradesman.
8 July 2023
Just had my tiling completed by Gary, two rooms kitchen and study great job very professional. As i was in the building trade for 50 years I expected a great job and i wasn’t disappointed. Tiling was neat tidy straight a very good job. I would recommend Gary to install any tiling to any sort of job, great tiler thanks.
27 May 2023
Helped turn my nightmare kitchen into a dream. Never liked it since moving in but Gary helped find just the right tiles and cut them all round windows and power plugs with amazing skill.
Surfaces so straight & flat you would think it had been wallpapered. Thanks Gary for a great job.
6 May 2023
Gary tiled the hall and kitchen floors for us, ready for our new kitchen, he pays real attention to detail and got the floors really flat and level, which is no easy task, his cutting around the door frames and silicone work is second to none.
He's a genuinely nice guy who goes out of his way to work around you.
9 March 2023
I’m so happy with my Bathroom Gary you were brilliant!
First, Gary visited our home and gave us very good advice on the best materials to use as we knew nothing about tiles, Gary was very professional his knowledge and expertise was incredible. We accepted his quote and glad we did.
The bathroom now has posh tiles, there beautiful and the lines are perfectly straight I can’t find fault even with a magnifying glass (kidding) but seriously even the corners (mitred) are spot on! Very impressive attention to fine detail a perfectionist.
Our bathroom was a very awkward shape this didn’t put Gary off, his knowledge and craftsmanship was first class. The job didn’t take too long Gary attended the job early morning with a smile he’s funny chap, pleasant to have in our home.
Love our bathroom Gary thank you so much we’ll have years of happy bathing my family now love visiting the bathroom ha ha there thinking of having there’s done.
Recommend GM Tiling a Master of his trade

Gary did a smashing job on our floor. We gave him quite a task to lay long narrow tiles in a continuous pattern right through the lower floor of our house. He did so marvellously, the floor is true, flat and feels absolutely solid, all on a nice fine grout line. Thanks Gary...
18 November 2022
Whilst completing the Red Dragon Housing development in Newtown Powys I asked other local trades people who they would recommend to carry out the tiling for the 18 house project and Gary came top of the list. He has been polite and friendly throughout his time on site and worked well with the other trades to hit deadlines and overcome challenges that presented themselves.
His history as an ex Grenadier Guardsman shines through. He has an eye for detail and was proactive in keeping his work area clean and organised. He was meticulous in his setting out and preparation works prior to tiling which ensured that he reduced wasted tiles and small cuts.
Gary's tiling has received high praise from the clients and other trades, and we look forward to working with him again on future projects.

I got in touch with Gary because of his good reviews online he was more than helpful came to look at the job and wow he done a stunning job of all the downstairs of the house (kitchen,landry.toilet,hallway, living room and the entrance to the house). the original subfloor was uneven and out of level he self levelled and put down my 600x600 tiles and what a difference it's made super happy with the work he's done and a really friendly chap thanks Gary!
17 June 2022
We had Gary in to tile our kitchen/utility floor. After removing the old tiles he took great care to seal and level the floor before starting the new tiling. Once started, he made sure the tiles were perfectly aligned and the surface flat.
Gary is a perfectionist and very meticulous in his work. Thank you for a great job Gary.

Gary did a brilliant job tiling the floor of my basement, which has enabled the space to be fully utilised. He also provided invaluable advice at all stages of the process and this was very much appreciated.
10 May 2022
As far as Gary's work is concerned, I really cannot fault it. He did a fabulous job in our kitchen and everyone admires the tiling. He also went above and beyond to make good the tiling in our downstairs cloakroom after someone else had left the job unfinished and in a mess. Excellent workmanship and attention to detail.

Gary tiled 25 houses for us on a tight schedule to a very high standard. He worked well under pressure and put the hours in where needed. He takes great pride in his work which was evident throughout our developement. We would highly recommend Gary he is a professional craftman at the top of his game. We would definitely use him again for future developments.

Gary tiled our kitchen the work is excellent really happy 5 Star result. Gary started off as a tiler and ended up a fiend.

Gary did a fantastic job tiling our bathroom 15 years ago. Lines are straight and surface was flat, tolerance is within millimetre accuracy.
This time around, we needed to tile our living area and kitchen floor with underflow heating. Gary took great care to prepare the floor, so it was solid and level. Also there is a design on the centre of room with square tiles and oblong tiles around. Gary made sure the square and oblong tiles mingled together to give a stunning appearance.
Second time around , as expected, lines are straight and surface is flat. Excellent finish.
02 March 2021
Gary did some tiling work for us recently in a new commercial welfare block we built, and he did a cracking job. He used the best possible material and helped us in deciding how to have the tiles. he was also very flexible for dates. the end product looks amazing
17 February 2021
We had been considering a glass splashback for our kitchen but after Gary had tiled our bathroom we decided to go for tiling in the kitchen too. Gary first took the time to prepare the surface properly as the walls had already been painted. He explained that this was to ensure a strong adhesion for the tiles. He suggested a coloured grout rather than white and also recommended a mitred corner rather than a trim. The finished splashback looks absolutely fantastic and sets the kitchen off amazingly well. As a favour, Gary also put up some of our leftover bathroom tiles as a basin splashback in the cloakroom. Gary goes the extra mile to make sure you are 100% happy with your tiling.
3 February 2021
Gary did an excellent job on my bathroom. It was not without its issues as the walls were bowed and the tiles were bought off the shelf. After a time thinking in his office (Van) he came up with the solution and carried out the job professionally. Highly recommend G M tiling.
17 January 2021
Gary did a fantastic job tiling our bathroom. The space was difficult to work in with a sloping ceiling and limited space but this was no obstacle to him.
He very carefully planned the layout of the tiles and we are extremely pleased with the end result.
Gary is an expert in his field and really takes the time to make sure you get the best out of your bathroom design. He is professional and works hard to get the job done when he says he will.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Gary for your tiling job.
28 December 2020
I never dreamt that I could own a masterpiece, but I own one now! Gary's work is perfection in tile form. If you're looking for a tiler, look no further.
Gary plans ahead like a chess player, thinking about the possible tile positions to ensure he picks the best outcome achievable.
At the heart of his work is a deep appreciation for how important the outcome is to the homeowner, because his work is something we'll be looking at every day.
As well as being a tiling genius, Gary is very kind and friendly to work with too.
Gary came to my rescue to tile the walls and floor of my newly renovated bathroom. He'd seen how far we'd come with the renovation of our house, and how far we still had to go, and though it was difficult for him to fit me in he was really keen that my home and bathroom needed to be treated with the greatest care and he appreciated how much it meant to us to have the work completed within our time constraints. He became my fairy-god tiler. And the advice he gave to our builder about how best to prepare the walls and floor for tiling was immensely valuable. His ideas and advice about the best grout and trims to use to suit our project lead to a better outcome than I could have imagined.
14 December 2020
I spoke to Gary a few months back about tiling our kitchen and after he gave us a very reasonable quote I set about ordering some handmade tiles from a local maker.
Once they arrived I contacted Gary again and he got back the same day and was able to fit us in very quickly despite his busy schedule.
He was able to achieve the look we wanted perfectly and was great with suggestions, and his knowledge of tiling was second to none. As the tiles were handmade they were very fiddly and difficult to put up, but he did an amazing job and we are so pleased.
He originally quoted two days for the job, but because of the nature of the tiles and some extra sealing needed he made time to come a further three days and stayed late most days to get the job done at no extra cost.
Thanks Gary for a really nice job!
02 December 2020
We couldn't be more delighted with the work Gary has done for us. He is a master in his field and takes pride in every aspect of his work.

I contacted Gary a few weeks ago to quote on tiling a dining room floor at my Shrewsbury home. Although he was busy with large contracts that he was honouring despite being knocked back with the covid pandemic, he still found the time to drop by. He did manage to fit the job in and produced an amazing job. I cannot recommend Gary enough! A true craftsman at his trade and a friendly knowledgable person to round it off!
27 September 2020
Gary was asked to tile the hall of our newbuild home, approx 9m2 , with tiles we had acquired to match the existing floors in the kitchen and understairs cloakroom . The tile finish was of random grained grey-washed floorboarding in both areas .
We waited just a few weeks for a gap in his busy schedule , having already sealed the dusty concrete surface for us , and he spent a few days with us laying the tiles , returning at the end to
finish the grouting and seal the edge to the skirting board . That week the weather was very hot, but Gary was not deterred and completed the job in the time frame he had estimated .
Gary took great care to carefully match the random pattern on each tile , especially with the existing tiles .The hall is 4.5 m long but the tiles are perfectly aligned and the whole surface is absolutely flat . He works well on Assam tea , milk and 2 sugars! Thank you Gary for an excellent job .

I needed a bathroom floor re-tiling as lots of tiles had cracked due to poor workmanship. Gary took great care to prepare the floor so it was solid and level, and the new tiles look great. Thank you!

Gary did a fantastic job tiling our bathrooms he is professional and a perfectionist he takes absolute pride in his work. He helped us out staying late to get the job done. Thank you Gary
14 May 2020
Gary came round to give a me quote for my bathroom. His knowledge and experience were immediately evident, and he didn’t run a mile when I showed him the mosaic tile I wanted for the floor. The mosaic needed someone who was a perfectionist with good attention to detail, I knew Gary was the man for the job. In fact, I didn’t bother getting quotes from anyone else! He measured up for me as I wasn’t confident that I would get it right and when I was let down by the person who was supposed to remove the toilet and sink he organised for his colleague to come and do the job which was a great help.
Gary took the time to measure out the wall tiles for the best finish, the result is an immaculate job. I have metro tiles in a brick pattern and each tile has been placed with precision. He has managed to even line up on the opposite walls. He suggested a silver metal trim which sets it off nicely. Gary has done such a professional job of the trim and it looks fantastic around the windowsill. Although my house is fairly modern the walls were really uneven in the area to be tiled but the tiles Gary placed are perfectly level.
For the floor I had a hexagonal pattern of marble mosaic. Again, Gary took the time to measure it out to ensure the best placement. The mosaic sheets were a real challenge to lay, Gary had to hand cut all the tiny pieces around the edge of the room. I think anyone with lesser experience would have struggled but Gary’s work was outstanding. The floor looks incredible. He really has done a fantastic job and it has transformed my bathroom and I love it! If you are looking for someone who can do a very professional finish and don’t mind having a Man U fan in the house (only kidding Gary!) then employ Gary because his work is faultless!

My small porch has been transformed with an excellent tiling job. First class ! Thank you Gary
15 Nov 2019
Gary did an absolutely superb job tiling our kitchen. He is a master craftsman, artist and the consummate professional.
I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of Gary’s work. He undoubtedly has an eye for detail and is meticulous in everything he does. He is one on the most personable people you would every wish to meet and took every care to ensure we were happy with every aspect of the his work.
Quality of work aside, Gary is absolutely reliable. He honours his commitments to do exactly what he says he will do.
If you want something tiled and tiled perfectly then Gary is your man!!

Came home from work today to an absolute cracking job done on outside steps. Workmanship & quality second to non. Just want to thank Grant for a job well done. Would definitely recommend to both family & friends. Thanks Again!!
28 Jun 2019
We had our kitchen tiled, Gary was first class from start to finish. We are pensioners and don't drive. When Gary knew this, he said that he would get the tiles etc for us. He also removed the sockets and switches from the walls as my husband has poor sight.
The work was second to none, Gary certainly went that extra mile. We would highly recommend Gary to anyone looking for a tiler. Thanks Gary.
20 Jun 2019
We asked Gary to tile our kitchen and the result is absolutely stunning. However, it would have been quite different if we hadn't taken his advice. We bought the tiles from Fired Earth, who also supplied the grout. Gary could have just taken the money and used what was supplied, but he didn't and we will be forever grateful for that. The colour and make of grout he recommended provided a perfect complement for the tiles. He really knows his materials and has an eye for detail and colour.
If you want tiling done cheaply and quickly read no more. However if, like us, you want a professional job then you'll find no one better. How many tilers use a laser to set out horizontal and vertical lines? His setting out and attention to detail make all the difference.
Take out advice - choose your tiles and then talk to Gary about the materials. If you want your tiling done by a craftsman, look no further.

Gary recently tiled our downstairs W.C. His wealth of knowledge was apparent when working out the placement of full/cut tiles, this coupled with his attention to detail, has ensured that the pattern flows seamlessly and looks fabulous. There will be no heitation in us booking him for our next tiling job. He is reliable, a true gent and a pleasure to have working in our home.

A great job done. Recently tiled a bathroom floor and walls for me and I'm very happy with the results! Gary worked to a very high standard and quickly too. I would definitely recommend GM Tiling.
27 July 2018
After having Gary in before for a hallway and bathroom, when my carpet got damaged due to flooding and I wanted to replace with titles, I knew I had to get Gary back again as his work was so great. Since having the floor done I have had no end of comments about how larger the room seems and all have been impressed about how perfectly the titles link from one room to the other with all the lines dead straight.
16 July 2018
Great, job, thank you Gary. Our kitchen floor looked terrible, it is now completely transformed and we love it.

The tiles look great and Gary strove to ensure he did the best job possible at the best possible price. Will be having him back to tile our hallway and wet room within the next few months.

Really glad we contacted GM Tiling to tile our refitted kitchen. Gary did a first class job, attention to detail, very clean working and a finish to be proud of. Reliable and to a good price I have no doubt, if you want the same, in recommending Gary to you.

Gary tiled my wet room floor after a DIY disaster. When completing the quote, he kindly removed the tiles and adhesive for me and helped me to find th problem - all without a charge. When he came back to complete the job, Gary made sure the finish was excellent and was very meticulous over his work. A true craftsman - I would certainly recommend Gary.
28 Jun 2017
Gary did the floor tiling in our new house. The ground floor area spanned several rooms and Gary took a great deal of care with the layout of the tiles to ensure a neat appearance. The bathrooms were quite fiddly as he had to cut around the bathroom fittings but he did a good job and I would recommend him.
21 Jun 2017
Gary made a stunning job of the tiling of our kitchen. Gary is only satisfied with a perfect finish and made sure that the finished result of our tiled skirting, worktop upstand and cooker splash back complimented our new contemporary kitchen. Gary went to great pains to ensure that the most complimentary coloured grouting and silicone sealants were used. Gary also ensured that he cleaned up at the end of each day. I would highly recommend Gary for any tiling projects, especially if an excellent finish is required.
27 Jan 2017
Gary recently completed the tiling of my kitchen floor. Very pleased with the result. Would recommend.
15 Aug 2016
I now love my kitchen!
Gary has just finished tiling my kitchen and I couldn't be happier. It was a big task even though the kitchen is small, because it is in a caravan and the challenge was to tile on walls that move!!
Taking the time to prepare the surfaces may have taken extra time, it was well worth it as the end result is perfect and the attention to detail on the finish is second to none.
I would happily recommend this tiler to anyone who wants an excellent result and a clean and tidy job through out their project.
08 July 2016
Delighted with the tiling that Gary has done for us. He has done a fantastic job of laying tiles in our hall and cloakroom. He takes great pride in the work he does and obviously enjoys his job, which he does to an exceptionally high standard. He is reliable and trustworthy. Thank you very much Gary. It looks GREAT !!

Gary is meticulous in his planning and preparation and what's more carries his work out to an incredible high professional standard. You can be certain of a real quality finish that you will be able to live with and admire for years. Gary tiled our shower room and it was a no-brainer to get him back to take on the challenging job of our hallway - once three separate rooms and, before Gary, on three different levels. We now have a surface that marbles refuse to roll on.

G M Tiling was recommended from Topps and Tiles, Shrewsbury. We were given Gary's business card and called him to ask for a quote for our kitchen floor. Gary gave us a date and time as to when he would be with us to quote, he was very punctual, giving us some great ideas along with a good price for the job. We were given a start date to which he adhered to. We found him very friendly, honest and reliable as we both work and left him alone in the house all day. Everything was left clean and tidy at the end of each working day. We are very pleased that we used G M Tiling and would continue to do so.
Thanks very much
