About Simon the Tiler



I undertook my ceramic tiling apprenticeship in 1984 at the age of 16 in Sussex, and have been tiling ever since.


I was taught by 2 'old-school' tilers, who taught me to cut tiles by hand, before all the new cutting equipment came to the market. This is important for those awkward tiles, for instance, tiles around pipes. I won't cut a tile into two unless it is absolutely necessary, I prefer to see a hole cut into the tile than a split in it.


I ran my own ceramic tiling business in Sussex for 27 years, working in literally thousands of household properties, tiling bathrooms, kitchens and conservatories.


I expanded my business to employ other tilers and we undertook large commercial projects all over the UK, including Sainsbury's superstores, Health & Fitness clubs, shop fronts, and Golf and Country clubs.


My wife and I moved to France early 2012 and spent the first year getting our fishing gîtes and lakes up and running.



I'm a true craftsman at my trade.

It's all I've done since leaving school, so I should be good at it!


I'm a professional.

I leave your property clean and tidy, with ceramic tiling you can be proud of.


Don't take my word for it, take a look at my portfolio and see what my customers say.


I look forward to hearing from you and to discussing your ceramic tiling needs.


I'm fully insured. As you would expect from a professional, and as is required by law in France. Ceramic Tilers in France must provide an insurance which guarantees their work for 10 years.
