A Stunning Patio Renovation with Slate-Look Tile from American Olean

Cusick 002When Ruth and Terry Cusick decided to install tile in the outdoor patio area of their West Broward home, they didn't have far to look. They have been customers of D&B Tile for more than 30 years. According to Terry, "When we first started our relationship with D&B Tile, we didn't know anything about them. I was very cost conscious at that time and found D&B Tile to have the best prices on everything we needed to get the job done. We have 34 rental units in South Dade and use D&B Tile exclusively for all of those and also for our home. All the tile in our home is from D&B.


"We purchased 1,400 sq ft of the American Olean slate-look porcelain tiles in 18x18 and 6x6 sizes for this outdoor patio area. It was a perfect match because it gave us the look we wanted without the maintenance of slate. We're very pleased with the way it looks.


"We developed an excellent working relationship with Joe Svoboda in the D&B Tile of Sunrise store. To us, he is more than a salesman. When we tell him about our projects, he listens and makes suggestions. He is able to visualize the project and always comes up with great products at low prices."

"D&B Tile makes each customer feel important. We wouldn't go anywhere else. When it comes to tile, we depend on Joe to recommend what product would be best for our needs," said Ruth. "We'll have something in mind and Joe will listen and then offer a variety of options. Sometimes he moves us into directions we wouldn't have thought about. One of our recent remodels in Kendall involved a townhouse with a concrete staircase going up to the second floor. It had been carpeted when we purchased the property. We didn't know how to deal with the lip of the stairs. He pointed out a product to handle that. Everything we needed for the job was available right in the store."


"In fact, our next project may very well include the wood-look tile," said Ruth. We're impressed with the different looks and textures available from D&B Tile."
