In my humble opinion,
with 35 plus years in the construction and engineering industry I can say that Adrian and his team from LV Tile & Stone are in a class of “Master Tilers”. Adrian and the team are: professional, friendly, down to earth, practical, understanding, punctual and above all else – they treat you like family. I interviewed several potential so called “professional tilers” and in summary: they were not skilled enough to take on the work nor were they confident of thinking “outside of the box”. Attention to detail, level floors, square corners & straight grout lines are very key elements for me and that is why I trusted my bathroom tiling project to Adrian. I retained Adrian to complete the tiling in a basement bathroom that was a unique design which contained a free standing tub in a common shower area. The tiling pattern was complex with hand picked tiles to create the layers of a quarried mountain side. The geometric layout of the bathroom was also unique with Schluter edge returns, 45 angle degree walls and a heated floor system. I have attached some pictures of the work and the photos speak for themselves.
In my humble opinion, If you are looking for “Masters Tilers” who really know their craft, I strongly suggest you give Adrian a call at LV Tile & Stone – you will not be disappointed.

Logan LockhartCEO, Lockhart Sealant Ltd. review in Vancouver
After visiting the LV Tile & Stone website and reading the reviews, we decided to give Adrian a call. He was very professional, kind, polite and easy to talk to – especially when expressing our concerns regarding the project. Adrian put our mind at ease. After our initial meeting, we knew he was the right person for the job. He showed us several pictures and videos of other projects he had worked on and explained in detail of his dry pack process and a day-by-day breakdown of how the job will be completed.
We were having a difficult time finding the right floor tiles for our new project. After narrowing it down to a few samples, Adrian advised us to run them by him. He informed us of what to look for and/or avoid when choosing a tile. Once we found our perfect tile, we called Adrian to start the project and he provided a timeframe in which he would complete it.
During the renovation, he was very respectful of us and our home. He took his time and made sure each and every tile was laid perfectly and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Thus far, we’ve received several compliments on the finished product. We will definitely keep him in mind for future projects and recommend him to our friends and family.
Thank you Adrian!
EshaKitchen and Foyer 24X24 Porcelain Tile, Tile & Stone Contractors review in Shuswap
Adrian and his crew tiled our entire basement about 3 years ago and it looks amazing. So, in early 2016 when we were preparing to tile our kitchen, entrance, powder room and laundry, we didn’t hesitate to work with Adrian again!
Using dry pack makes the floor perfectly straight … a necessity when laying 24″ fully rectified tiles.
The work was done cleanly and on time. The results are great. The floor is solid, the lines are laser straight, and transitions to the adjoining rooms are perfectly aligned.
We also installed flush height floor registers that the tile store cut from some of our tile with a water jet. It requires a hole to be perfectly cut so the register fits with a uniform gap on all sides. Adrian did a great job cutting the holes and the registers look great.
In our kitchen, the floor was 3/4″ lower on one side of the room than the other. With drypack, Adrian’s crew was able to get the floor laser level. The cabinet installers commented that it was very rare for them to work on a floor that is as perfectly level as ours.
I have no hesitations recommending Adrian and LV Tile.

A month before Christmas, I happened to come across Adrian’s website, LV Tile & Stone, and am I ever glad I did. After waiting 5 weeks for another company to follow through (just with phone calls and emails after a house visit), and then another company after that, Adrian’s voice on the phone was way-above-the-norm helpful and insightful. He had contacts that quickly assessed what I needed done in terms of radiant floor heat, and got the job done quickly and efficiently. Then another small crew (I have a small living-room) came in to do the thin-set which evened out my old floor, and that was impressive. After, Adrian and his crew came to do the tile. He took the time needed to figure out the best way to lay the tile so it would not upset the way your eye sees it (uneven floors and walls, older home). He was a busy guy but managed to squeeze my job in between bigger jobs, and I so appreciate his efforts considering this crazy-busy time of year. Throughout, Adrian and his crew were professional, helpful, hardworking and friendly. I could not have asked for more. I was 100% satisfied.Grace in KelownaLiving Room Renovation, Kitchen Planning & Renovation review in Kelowna
From the first time I called Adrian until the job was finished, Adrian was a true professional. My story began when I mistakenly hired someone else from a buy & sell website to install 12 x 24 rectified porcelain tile in my kitchen and hallway. I knew something was wrong when he showed up 5 hours late on the first day, then called in sick on the second day. After laying 70 sq. ft. of 12 x 24 rectified porcelain tile, I was not happy at the quality of workmanship and had a hard time sleeping with the idea my whole main floor would be like that, so I cut my losses and fired him. That same day I found Adrian’s website and was impressed that he offered tips and explanations. When I called the number, Adrian answered and made me feel at ease. I explained my predicament he was sympathetic and patiently explained his technique for laying flat tile. He came over that evening to examine what the other guy left behind and brought his long straight edge to show me how uneven my floors were. He recommended removing the tile and starting over, which I did and we used the opportunity to go with a larger 24 x 24 tile. The key to a quality installation is a flat floor and he uses drypack to get uneven floors nice and flat. After going to visit a couple of his jobs to see his work first hand, I hired him. He started when he said he would and installed the drypack on day 1. After 1 day of drying, he started laying the tile on day 3 and finished grouting on day 6. The end product was better than I expected. The floors were flat, with no lippage and they looked amazing. I was very happy and could have saved money if I contacted Adrian from the beginning. His prices are very reasonable and if you have high standards like me, you will appreciate his attention to detail and high quality of workmanship. Thanks so much Adrian for saving me from a potential nightmare and leaving me with a floor that gets compliments from everyone that visits. I will be calling you again to install my back splash.

Adrian is the best in this business; his knowledge and experience in tile installation shows in all his projects.
The first time we used Adrian, we mistakenly had our kitchen cabinets installed first. Adrian patiently cut around all the gables and the tile.
work looked fantastic. Recently, he completed all the tiles in our new home and he recommended drypacking everywhere for a level finish. Again, the tile work looks great; Adrian is the master of drypacking as demonstrated in his projects. Use Adrian for all your tile work if you want your job to be done properly.Jo from Salmon ArmTilework, Salmon Arm
Adrian was a gem. He completed my job in 5 days, showed up on time and worked hard. Other contractors have come in and commented on what a great job he did. The drain flows perfectly and the tiles are lined up precisely. We just love our new bathroom.Jason from PentictonMaster Bathroom, Bathroom Renovation review in Penticton
Amazing experience dealing with Adrian. He’s a stand up guy that really takes the time. He asks you to show him your tile samples to ensure that it’s a good quality product. Due to his expertise we ended up with a 24×24 tile from Rivalda at a great price. Since there was slight bowing of the tile he recommended, he suggested 3/36 grout joints. I must say the whole process was a great experience. Adrian was always accessible by phone and easy to deal with. After picking up the tile, whole job from tear out to finished product took 9 days. The dry pack foundation that’s done for levelling and strengthening the ground really makes a huge difference. Even my general contractor was impressed with the work. Overall, we are 100% happy with the finished product. The precision can really be seen in the details. Even areas around drains that will be covered by kitchen cabinets were perfectly executed. Good tile work is a thing of Beauty and I’ve attached some pics. Would def recommend him to others. A+++

Adrian was kind and professional with my job. He completed it in 4 days with no surprises and went above and beyond to ensure the job was to our satisfaction. We are very happy with the thin grout lines and straight tiles.
Thank you Adrian!Janet from PeachlandMaster Bathroom, Bathroom Renovation review in Peachland
We were looking for a knowledgeable tile setter that had experience with large tiles and large spaces to tile about 850 sq ft of our basement with 24 inch fully rectified porcelain tiles. We met with a number of contractors, but they either didn’t have enough experience with this type of install, or they simply said they wouldn’t take the job because it was too difficult.
We found LV Tile & Stone and met with Adrian. He could show us photos of a number of tile installs he had done recently that were as challenging, or more challenging than ours. His experience and the quality of his past work was miles above the other tilesetters we met. And his pricing was competitive.
We’re extremely happy with the way things turned out. The LV Tile crew used dry pack to level the entire floor. It wasn’t too bad before, but there were some high spots that would have been obvious with such a large tile. After the dry pack, the floor was perfectly straight. The tiles are fully rectified so any imperfection in the way they’re laid would result in raised edges or grout lines that weren’t straight, etc. The installation is perfect. There isn’t a single raised edge or misaligned grout line. One area really stands out. They tiled around our built-in bar and cut the tiles so perfectly that we don’t need to install any trim to conceal the edge of the tile. It looks great! Leading up to the job, Adrian kept in contact to let me know how his current jobs were looking and when he was expecting to start our job. They took their time and didn’t rush and the results are great!
I would definitely recommend LV Tile & Stone to anyone looking for an experienced tilesetter that does outstanding work!
Stipo from Kelowna850 sq ft Basement - 24`` Rectified Porcelain, Basement Renovation review in Kelowna
Adrian was recommended from a very trusted contractor who uses him exclusively. He gave us good ideas and worked with us to ensure we had the design we wanted. He drypacked the floor to make sure it was flat and it is. We decided to add some marble trim in 3 areas which he cut to size and made sure all the interior tiles were symmetric. Took more time but looks great. He stayed to the estimated budget and completed the job professionally. Great attention to detail. We will use him for any future work.
Karla from OsoyoosTile - Porcelain and Marble, Tile & Stone Contractors review in Osoyoos
Several people I know that work for professional home builders told me that the drypack method was best for laying tiles. Adrian was able to do a professional job and a relatively low cost compared to other people using drypack. 24″ x 24″ is extremely hard for most tilers to lay (some told me that they could not take the job because they were uncomfortable due to lack of experience). I could tell when I met the guys from LV that they knew exactly what they were doing so I trusted them. My trust paid off as the floor looks amazing.

I found Adrian after getting quotes from a number of contractors. The quotes were in the same ballpark but none of the other contractors was using drypack as Adrian did. He explained how this method will ensure that the floor will be perfectly flat. This is especially important because I chose 17.5″ rectified edge porcelain tile and wanted a tight joint.
The boys at LV Tile did an excellent job. All lines are straight, floor is flat. This is the second time I hired Adrian to install tiles.

During our Kitchen renovation our contractor ran into multiple delays and could not meet commitments to get our floor installed before the kitchen cabinets were to arrive; guess who shows up to save the day… You got it Adrian and the crew. These guys are a pleasure to deal with, and very polite. They were both complete professionals throughout the entire install. Communication was very easy as they returned all our calls and kept us in the loop until the job was done. All our anxiety was relieved once they started. I can’t stress how professional Adrian and his team were to us. I only have nice things to say about guys that would work on Mother’s Day to make sure that our tiles were laid and grouted in time for our cabinets. We were so happy with the finished work and get so many compliments, that we told our original contractor we wanted Adrian to install our backsplash! Their work speaks for itself and I have no second thoughts passing their contact info to friends and family.Karen in SicamousLV Tile & Stone to the Rescue, Sicamous
We found Adrian online. He came saw our tiling project, shared pictures and details of his past work. He gave us some helpful advise on our bathroom project. Once we decided to go with him, he came on time and as promised. His work was professional. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family.RM in PrincetonBathroom Renovation, Bathroom Renovation review in Princeton
Adrian installed a backsplash in our newly renovated kitchen and did a fantastic job. Very professionally done and helpful with tips on how to maintain it, etc… Very flexible to our timing and took the time to meet us and get the lay of the land before proceeding. Will be recommending to anyone I meet in need of similar services.Matt in KelownaBacksplash, Kelowna
Adrian came the day before to look at our job and explain what he would need and understand what we wanted. He showed up on time, did the work efficiently and very well. Adrian was very helpful in explaining upkeep and made sure to clean up after the job and made this a painless event! Thank you!Victoria in SummerhillKitchen Backsplash, Kitchen Planning & Renovation review in Summerhill
These guys are real professionals. I had a floor that needed to be leveled (original contractors made a mess of it!) and he was able to fix it for me, perfectly level the floor, and then lay my entire basement floor with tile. It looks so nice! The tile is beautiful and it is laid absolutely perfectly, all the lines are exactly straight and even. I highly recommend LV tile and stone for any project. They also install kitchen tile, bathrooms, they can put in heated floors in your bathroom to make it like a spa, and any other type of tile job you can imagine. I will definitely use them again in the future when I redo the kitchen.Sarah in PentictonTile Floor Installation, Floor Laying & Refinishing review in Penticton
