A 3rd Generation Tile Artisan

Carl was literally born into the tile business. His grandfather owned his own tile business and introduced him to the art of tile. Ever since he was a young teenager, Carl spent hours upon hours helping his grandfather and uncles with a variety of tile projects.

Who Followed His Passion

He fell in love with the artistic part of the trade and decided to ditch his original plans of going to college for engineering and architecture to pursue his true passion: tile. Carl eventually became a Certified Tile Installer through the The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA). He also earned a certification in electric heating.

Started His Own Business

Right after high school, Carl worked for a tile company so he could perfect his craft. In 2004, he finally took the plunge and started his own venture: Cutting Edge Tile. To this day, he loves the challenge and free thinking his tile work brings him. What excites him most about it, however, is the satisfaction of knowing that his clients will be using something that he’s built.

And Became “The Flash”

Carl is known as the “Flash” because of how fast he’s able to turnaround projects without compromising quality. Additionally, Carl has earned a reputation as one of the most well-rounded tile installers out there.

Carl is AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about him! Nice, professional, obviously awesome at what he does, easy to work with! He went above and beyond to accommodate exactly what we wanted! We are obsessed with our brick backsplash and will definitely be using him again in the future

Carl and the Cutting Edge Tile team are truly remarkable. Not only are they very skilled and talented, they are very professional and a pleasure to work with. What we liked most about working with Cutting Edge tile was the guidance provided by Carl on the best materials to use and great vision for the final product/design. We would recommend this company to anyone looking for top-notch quality.
