Excellent work from Josh and his crew. Jonathan did an outstanding job on our bathroom tile and stone floor. They were on time every day and left the work site clean and tidy. I highly recommend them.

The team at Second Generation Tile is efficient, and do amazingly thorough work. I would highly recommend this company for any job large or small. Our project had a large amount of detailed cuts not to mention the  need to match custom tile throughout. Well done SG Tile... More...

We hired Josh and his crew to replace our entire ground floor with new tiles. The old tile floor was tenting badly so it all had to go. It was not a small job but not super big either. Josh's price was reasonable among other contractors we looked at. They picked up the tiles from the store for us and the project started pretty hassle free. We bought the largest plank tiles to make the floor look like hardwood. Javier was the person who worked on laying the tiles. He did a great job, especially with all the cuts he had to make to make the tiles fit into the kitchen. The project was supposed to be done in 2 weeks, but preparing the sub floor turned out to be an effort larger than expected. So the whole project finished in about 4 weeks. Javier worked onsite 5 days a week.We also had Josh's team to reinstall the baseboards. They saved the old baseboards and put them back in afterwards. Overall, we are happy with the floor. We would recommend Josh and his team for tile projects based on the quality of the work. The improvements I feel Josh could use is to be more clear on the contract proposal what is included exactly, leaving less room for interpretation. More...

My husband and I hired Second Generation, we are so happy the team equals perfection!Our floor was a mess, we had a "friend contractor" lay tile for us.  Results we pulled up the tile leaving us with the floor from hell.turn we had to pull up the tile, Lesson learned only tile experts only.As we called to get bids to resolve our bad, we got many of the experts giving us over the top estimates on fixing the floor and laying our tile or not returning our calls.  Second Generation came in saved us and our floor, giving us a quote the same day as the initial visit, which was lower than all the others.  Starting the job the following day.  Josh and Todd and team are amazing.  We now have a beautiful floor tiled to perfection. Hiring Second Generation, for a no stress, great price make over on any tile job. More...

I had a great experience with Josh and Second Generation Tile & Stone. I needed a job done quick and they were able to accommodate our business with a next day installation, and same day assessment. It was amazing. The job was done very well, and in the span of only a couple days. We had one hiccup with some wrong material being ordered, but the guys were kind enough to save me the trip of having to return it myself and took the material back. Great service and great guys. I highly recommend them! More...

I used Josh of Second Generation back in 2004 to install a slate porch. The result was lovely. Recently I discovered some of the tiles had come loose. He came out assessed the situation and had his workers Manuel and Todd reattach the tiles then cover the porch with a sealer that brought back the original color. The porch looks better than ever. I would have given five stars, but I had to call several times to get the job done. Nonetheless I highly recommend Second Generation Tile for their quality of workmanship. More...

This was a small job to tile my condo kitchen floor and the entry hall. Josh turned around an estimate quickly, did an onsite look before finalizing a contracted amount, and scheduled the job quickly. When one of his installers had an issue that took him away from the job he brought in a whole new team in order to finish on schedule. The installers were skilled and thoughtful about the tile pattern and appliance clearances. Well done and looks as good as I'd hoped.  I had already chosen and purchased the tile before Josh took the job. More...

My wife and I hired  Second Generation Tile to install tile floors in two bedrooms, our master bath, and our entryway foyer, including heating elements in the two bedrooms and bathroom. Josh was super helpful during the tile selection phase, figuring out the heating system and even working with us when we found a distributer with cheaper thermostats. To save on overall cost, I did most of the demolition of the existing floors and concrete membranes myself. Afterwards, Julio and his installation team came in and leveled the floors, installed the heating elements, and the tiles. During the process Josh checked in multiple times to make sure everything was going well and that our schedules were still in alignment. Afterwards Julio shaved down our doors as the level of the floors had changed. The install team were all very friendly, accommodating, and as unobtrusive as anyone could be redoing the floors of half of the house. Overall the experience was very positive and I would recommend Josh and  Second Generation Tile tile very highly. More...

We selected Second Generation Tile to do our kitchen backsplash.  The crew are all very professional and the result is perfect - and I'm a perfectionist.  As some of the other reviews state -- the crew takes great care in preparing everything and when done, they leave the site as clean or cleaner than when they started.  There was a small glitch at the start of the job but Josh was on it and made sure that we were immediately taken care of.

Josh and his brother, Gabe did a gorgeous job on a kitchen backsplash for us. They were very reasonable, professional, prompt, courteous.  They showed up on time every day of the job and completed ahead of schedule.We will definitely use them again and can highly recommend them. These guys are pros! More...

We were remodeling the bathroom and ordered one of the more difficult tiles to install, 1"x1" glass tiles on a paper backing (not the mesh). We were nervous about someone being able to install the tile properly for a whole bathroom wall because the grout lines would be very obvious.  Josh at Second Generation Tile came out to quote the job and he listened to what we wanted, discussed the installation options and offered a great suggestion for how to end the tiles. He had two of his crew come out to perform the job and closely oversaw their work (the crew was also very friendly, professional and great at what they did). We love the way it all turned out and I would highly recommend Second Generation Tile. More...

We remodeled our kitchen this past summer. Second Generation Tile installed our backsplash.  He was great to work with.  He was extremely patient with me while I was trying to decide what I wanted.  Once the work started he was always checking in to be sure he fully understood what we wanted.  They showed up on time and finished the job when they said they would.  The finished product looks amazing.  Josh's crew was friendly, professional and left the jobsite as clean if not cleaner than it was prior.

We had a kitchen tile backsplash installed by Second Generation, and we were very pleased with the workmanship and the entire process of working with Josh.Josh made suggestions and diplomatically talked me out of design ideas I had that in retrospect would have been a bad decision. So I am very grateful for that, and love the way the backsplash turned out.Some of the grouting shrunk after installation, which is normal, and Josh sent the workers back without any questioning to fix it.It was also really easy to communicate with Josh via email, and he was very responsive.I highly recommend Second Generation and would definitely work with them again.

I hired Josh at Second Generation Tile this past summer to retile my guest bathroom (tub surround and floor). I planned on using expensive marble and wanted to ensure I was working with a true professional.  I can't tell you how happy I was to work with Josh and his crew, especially Raul and Francisco who were the primary workers on my job.. These people are artisans, not just tile setters, and they care about dong a beautiful job for you. Raul would ask me a lot a questions before I left for work and we would go over how the tile would lay out before he did it - I really appreciated that attention to detail. I would highly recommend Josh and Second Generation Tile for your next tile project.  You won't be sorry. More...

Second Generation Tile did the tile work on 2 new bathrooms as well as a new fireplace fascia which was completed in June of 2009.  I forgot to write a review but figured better late than never.  The tile design in both bathroom was very technical.  Josh made certain the job was done to the right and when finished, it is a work of art.I have recommended this company to family and friends.  You will not be disappointed!Susan M.

I was very pleased with my experience with Second Generation Tile and Stone.  Mine was a "smaller" tile job, and that is often the most difficult to even get a return phone call about.  Josh Davis not only returned my phone call promptly, but scheduled the work in a timely manner.  The installers were friendly, courteous and did beautiful work.  And best of all, the cost was very reasonable!  I will not hesitate to use this company again when the need arises.Phyllis Ponte and Michael GlembourttMillbrae, CA More...

We have used 2nd Generation to install tile flooring, fireplace and kitchen backsplash. Josh was dedicated to ensuring that we were pleased with the end result. He visited the site often and his workers were very courteous, patient in answering any questions and were obviously talented and experienced. I would not hesitate recommending Josh and Second Generation to anyone as we have been more than happy with the work completed. More...

I recently contracted with Second Generation to remove a rug and tile a finished basement in a rental house that I own.  They started work immediately, did a fantastic job and finished promptly.  They made lots of helpful suggestions along the way as well.  Josh is a great communicator, and returns emails and voicemails immediately.  He kept me in the loop on any necessary changes and options and was a great guy to work with overall.  Highly recommended!

I contracted with SG tile to install Slate for a walkway and porch, Marble for a fireplace and exterior ledger stone wainscoting.  After getting bids from several established companies as well as an unlicensed independent installer, I decided that SG tile would be the best value that would provide the highest probability of meeting my expectations.  Before and during the work phase the attention to detail, communication of options, recommendations and detail enhancements were a big help to get me to the finished look I had envisioned. Appointments were always promptly on time and the start / finish date was as promised.  It's always been my opinion that a wholly positive review is worthless but, in SG Tile's case, I really cannot think of any negatives.

These guys are the absolute best!  I was so impressed with Josh, the owner.  When I was describing what I was imagining I wanted for my home, he made sure he understood every last detail before starting any work.  His level of attention to every aspect of the job put me at ease and had me feel confident that it was going to get done exactly the way I wanted it.  Make sure to check out their website.  It really reflects the type of work they do.  sgtile.com More...
