Regarding the 2 negative reviews written on 4/14 & 4/17. For the appt. that I missed I apologize but I must have been really busy at the time & just couldn't take on any more work and didn't want to waste your time & patience by trying to be at 2 jobs at once. And for the review with Spanish patio tiles. He is right about it peeling. But I did end up going back to fix it. The finish photos are above. They wanted a topical glossy sealer for the outside. And it turned out their tiles were concrete tiles which do not absorb the sealer as well as the porous Spanish tiles. So it began to peel. I did go back and did a few test areas using a different process because I wanted to make sure this process worked. So it did take a little more time than the homeowner wanted by the final product turned out really well. Other than that I am very meticulous about the work that we do. And I do stand by my work and have plenty of references. I just to make sure a few of them get to these review sections.

Will has completed 3 separate tile and porcelain jobs for us over the course of the last four years including a complete new bath/shower, 1000 combined feet of flooring, and counter coverings. For each job, Will always provided us with excellent communication offering suggestions and options at appropriate times throughout the job. Will always made sure he had a clear understanding of our installation decisions. He then worked hard to ensure that the installation of the product was correctly done the first time. Will has a good artistic eye for tile installation and was able to adapt to our particular decorating styles. He has also displayed a thorough knowledge of all types of products related to tile and porcelain installation. Finally, we found Will to be very honest, trustworthy, and honorable. He did not "cut corners" during any of our jobs. I strongly recommend that you contact him for a bid on your project.

As to the review below. I would just like to say I never worked for the people nor did I sign any contract or take any money from them. They were already having problems with their existing tile contractor and were looking to have someone else finish the tile work. So I went for an estimate and told them a lot of things which their present tile contractor hadn't taken into consideration and gave them a price almost half of the their existing contractor and with a lot of the unforeseen issues addressed by me. They tried to contact me on a Monday and I was literally out of phone service range. If I remember correctly it was in Valley Center for 2 days and we worked late and got home late and was out of contact for a day and a half and they left not the nicest message with a sort of tone to it and I didn't hear back from them. So I was surprised to see the review below.
Will and his crew did an amazing job for us back in Oct 2014 for the interior of our house on unique mixed Saltillo tile, which was in desperate need of cleaning. He provided a sample of what the floor stripped, cleaned, and sealed would look like, prepared the quote, laid out the agreement of commitments....all was solidly executed and almost 9 months later the job looks amazing still! we get complements from everyone saying how impressed they are with how it looks. We value Will's years of experience, and expertise, in fact we just had him out to do a whole front patio as well as clean and seal our entire front and back porches! Highly recommend!
Will did the tile and marble work in our master bathroom remodel and we are thrilled with the result. Will did a superb job showing his craftsmanship, experience and attention to detail. We had a very small shower stall area but Will was thoughtful in his approach and was able to make every single tile match and it looks fantastic. We appreciated his advice on how to lay the marble floor so that the room looks bigger too. It was a nice special touch. And we especially like the way that Will took such pride in his work : no cutting corners. He does it right. He's great.
We used Will to match a new Saltillo tile installation to an existing Saltillo tile install. He suggested that we first Refinish the old tiles to see what the actual color of the grout & tiles were and he did a great job rejuvenating the tiles as well as our whole house. He then did another great job matching the new tiles & grout to the existing tiles. We appreciated Will's attention to detail and being on time and on schedule. We had no problems with Will or his crew and appreciated that they cared just as much about our floors as we did. Tim S
Will Arnzen and his crew did an OUTSTANDING job on our flagstone. After years of abuse and zero care by the previous owner, Will and his crew came in and replaced a lot of the decaying stone and cleaned and sealed everything. Will and his crew were on time every day and never left a mess. The stonework now looks like it was installed yesterday. If you want a professional job go with Arnzen Tile and Stone.
We recently purchased a house with Mexican Paver flooring and had heard some stories about how hard these tiles are to maintain. But after Will thoroughly cleaned and sealed the floor the looked and continues to look great. And we look forward to seeing Will in a few years for the maintenance. They did such a good job that we hade them clean and reseal the bathroom shower walls and tile floor. Thanks Will!
We had Will work on restoring our Mexican Pavers for our patio in San Diego and they did a great job stripping off the old sealer and cleaning and sealing the tiles. They showed up on time, did very detailed work, and had very good suggestions on how to properly maintain the terra cotta tiles in the future. We will have Will come back to do future work for us.
