We chose Mario to install our backsplash after meeting him because of his consideration to even the smallest of details. He took the time to explain not only what to consider when choosing the best pattern to lay our chosen tile, but also the space in which it was being installed in, where our eyes focus while inside the kitchen or how it would look from the living room looking back towards the kitchen. This type of consideration can only be obtained after years of experience installing and laying tile. The fact that Mario spent so much time discussing these fine details confirmed to us that he was not only skilled in his craft, but also passionate about leaving the customer with the perfect final product.
During the installation it was evident that Mario is an artist at work. His dedication to making the perfect cuts around corners and window casings make our back splash anything but an ordinary tile job. Thank you for changing our idea of a backsplash as something to just protect our walls from stains and moisture, to one of the most detailed and finest parts or our new kitchen.

Exacting. Communicative. Artistic. Informative. Passionate. Most of all - caring.
There is no such thing as a "regular" tile job for Mario. We thought our glass tile kitchen backsplash was pretty routine. But if you want a finished product that endures and makes you smile every time you see it, you need Mario. He takes the time to find out what you want and gives you alternatives so you'll be happy. From layout to grout, he considers all the details making sure the entire job is the best it can be. A true artisan who charges reasonable rates, wants you to ask questions, arrives on time and stays until the job is done.

Mario did an amazing job transforming both my bathrooms from dark, mouldy, gloomy rooms into light, bright personal spas. The results are spectacular and I am 100 percent satisfied.

Mario is honest, reliable, and diligent, but just as important, he also does great work. And I really appreciated his attention to detail.

Honest, professional and knowledgeable. Mario is an artist and craftsman of his trade and will recommend him to friends and family without hesitation. His attention to detail is absolutely stunning. He takes pride in his workmanship and treats every tile like he was doing his own home.

Rome wasn't built in a day, but the results are spectacular. In this regard, tile installer Mario Martins operates under the same principles as the ancient Romans. Mario is a true craftsman who takes great price in creating something that not only looks great but is made to last a long time. He takes his time carefully preparing his work area and lays each tile meticulously; all the while communicating and requesting feedback about the details. The results will be spectacular and you will be impressed. So if quality is your first priority - then Mario Martins is the man to install your tiles!
L. D'Alessandro (Oakville, Ontario)
Mario doesn't treat you like a 'one-of' customer. He prides himself not only in doing fantastic work but also makes a great effort to build a relationship and be your friend throughout the process. This inevitably makes the tile installation process more enjoyable! Mario takes the time to meticulously lay each tile and uses spacers to ensure that all grout lines are perfect. Prior to even laying a tile, he will go over the details of the job and make you comfortable with how he plans to proceed. Then he will level the entire area to ensure a finish product that is perfect in every way. Mario gets the job right the first time, on time and at a fair price. I will be recommending Mario over and over!

Mario took a difficult project - a small bathroom with an uneven floor and a heavy claw foot bathtub - and turned it into the best room in the house. He was courteous, friendly and determined to give us full satisfaction for our money. He does not rush his work, and it shows in the final product.
D. Berman (Toronto, Ontario)
Mario did an outstanding job of tiling our bathroom and kitchen backsplash. His attention to detail and obvious experience resulted in a professional job that we will be happy with for years to come. Mario focused 100% of his attention on our project and we could count on him showing up every day to put in a full day's work. His work ethic was greatly appreciated and is the main reason we would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends.

Mario Martins is a true professional. He took time to explain every detail of my foyer tiling job, outlined all the options and gave sage advice. He was even willing to accept suggestions from me (not a common thing among tradespeople, I have found). With Christmas fast approaching, Mario was sensitive to my need for speed. He arrived promptly each day and worked quickly, but with great care. It is obvious that he takes pride in his craft. The end result was wonderful. The foyer looks even better than I imagined it would be. I have no hesitation in recommending Mario to anyone looking for superior tiling work.
J. Kinoshita (Toronto, ON)
Tile can really bring a room to life which is why it is so important it be done properly. Mario is a true craftsman. He took his time and made sure the job got done right. I would hire Mario again, he did a fantastic job, paid close attention to the details and made sure I was completely satisfied with the end result.
Mario recently tiled our basement floor. Unknown to us, a basement floor can be quite difficult to tile with it being uneven and needing to slope to drains. With this in mind we were so happy to have hired a professional like Mario to do the job right and well. He wasn't someone who just comes in, slaps some tiles down as fast as possible and then leaves. Mario took the time and energy to do the job right, the first time, taking time to plan the lay-out, level, and have customer input along the way. We were happy to see him start the job and then see it through, not jumping from job to job. We were also very impressed with how he left our basement when he was done the job...spot-less! We would definitely recommend Mario for tile installation.

I had the pleasure of having Mario complete a tile project on our shower. I was pleased he completed the project on time and he kept to his quote. His personality made him a pleasure to work with, and the quality of the job exceeded my expectations.
W. Bennett (Toronto, Ontario)
Mario Martins did an excellent job installing our tiles. He levelled each tile meticulously and frequently communicated with us as to next steps. Mario was reliable in terms of showing up on days he said he would. He is an honest and professional tradesman. We would recommend him highly.
