Knight is king of the fixers

Richard Knight has become the first professional ‘fixer’ to be recognised as ‘Tiler of the Month’ by www.tilerworld.com, the leading free web site for tilers and their customers. Based in Sandbach, Richard Knight Tiling serves both business and domestic customers throughout Cheshire and the surrounding area. The judges selected him for the numerous positive reviews of his work by customers and the testimonials accompanying his customer ratings on the site.

Every customer using a rated tiler listed on www.tilerworld.com is encouraged to submit their own rating of the tiler’s work, with the incentive of a free prize draw. Each month, one lucky customer wins the value of their tiling, up to a maximum of £1,000. Richard Knight’s ratings are all positive, with customer comments including, “Mr. Knight was extremely professional, courteous and friendly and did an excellent job on the tiling. Highly recommended and would definitely use him again for any future tiling work.”

The customer rating system is a key reason for www.tilerworld.com‘s impressive growth since its launch at the beginning of the year. It allows a consumer to find a list of professional tilers in their area and compare how each has been rated by previous customers. The consumer can then request up to five tilers to quote for their tiling project. More than 6,000 fixers have already registered with the site, with more joining every day. As well as being able to show customer ratings, each is also able to upload photographs of their work. The site is free to use for both tilers and their customers.

Richard Knight said, “The opportunity for so many potential clients to contact me is fantastic. For consumers to see previous feedback straight away, along with pictures of my work, means they can be assured of receiving a high quality service from me. Any tiler who wants to be seen as a real professional should register with www.tilerworld.com, complete their profile and encourage customers to rate their work.”

As a example of the expertise which brought Richard Knight’s national recognition, he was recently tiling within a new build in Sandbach, on a project with an extremely tight timescale. He was able to advise the developer on the correct method of preparing the anhydrite screed to use over the first floor construction, which was constructed in the concrete block and beam method. The tiling on this project provided an excellent finish for the contemporary kitchen with the use of classic polished marble.
