National prize goes to Stevenage man

When Stevenage resident Ian Moore was using the free www.tilerworld.com service to choose Andy Howard as the tiler to work on his kitchen, he did not imagine that the work might be paid for by somebody else. That is exactly what happened. As the latest lucky winner of www.tilerworld.com’s monthly free draw, he is receiving back the £320 cost of the project. He was entered automatically into the draw by posting a rating of Andy’s work onto the site.

Ian was already delighted with the work carried out by Andy Howard, so the prize was the icing on the cake. “The job was done perfectly and the products used were of excellent quality,” he said. “Then, I won my money back. What more could I ask for?”

When Ian’s kitchen tiling was completed, he gave Andy a positive rating on TilerWorld — and posting that rating guaranteed his entry to the free draw. “I’m very happy for Ian,” said Andy. “TilerWorld is a great site for both tilers and their customers. Even if you don’t win the free draw, you still know that you are dealing with a top-class tiler.”

Every customer using a rated tiler listed on www.tilerworld.com is encouraged to submit their own rating of their 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.

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 5,000 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.
