Bathroom Renovation

I needed a bathroom renovation and knew who to call first. I have used Vatzek before and again was very pleased with his work. I had a tricky job with a walk in shower (kerb-less) and had complete confidence as Vatzek takes the time to consider every detail before quoting and commencing work. The work was excellent and i've had multiple compliments on the work from others. I highly recommend Vatzek to anyone who wants to ensure the job is done right and pay a competitive rate.

Bathroom tiling

We have a small bathroom that we recently renovated. We were able to tile the wall and the floor but weren't happy with out skills. We contacted Vatzek to get his oppinion on sealing a window in the shower and replacing the floor.
He is a very busy man, which speaks for his skills as a tile setter. He is very polite and knowledgable. He gave us advice in prepping for the work and was very efficient at what he does. He fixed all the issues and despite having other committments, he still took the time to deliever a quality job. We are so happy with his work and can recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Kitchen backsplash

This was our second project with Vatzek the owner of Academy Ceramic Tile and we couldn't be happier with the finished project. Vatzek is a gentlemen and a professional at his work. A rare find in our estimation. We're planning a main bathroom renovation in the Spring and to be sure we will be calling on Academy Ceramic Tile again.

Ensuite Bathroom Renovation

I was referred to Vatzek through family who had used him for tile projects and loved him. He came in a gave us a quote and was very very close to the original price at the end of the project. He was always professional and cleaned up the area he used when he left every day. He was also flexible when it came to work hours, as we are both shift workers. VERY much appreciated!
Since he has finished, we have had a number of other professionals (glass installers, plumbers, drywall etc) along with friends and family, they have ALL commented on the tile work and how nice and neat it looks. Thanks Vatzek!

Tiling Installation & Repairs

I knew zero about tiling and contracted Academy Tiles (Vatzek) after taking few quotes for new Wall Tiles installation. Vatzek was not the cheapest but very straightforward in communication. He taught me how to do prep work and saved me money there. He also advised on how to identify good quality tiles from what just looks pretty. He kept all his commitments. In one case he could not enter the house due to security system but he stayed there to ensure security of the house and didn't charge extra for that wasted time. I gave him more work after he finished his contracted work without asking him the amount but he did not take advantage to charge any unreasonable amount. He did a very good job without laving any mess behind.
Highly recommended!!!

Thank you Ashu for finding some time to write this review. I am impressed by how successfully you went through this project with prep work, all of this jobs incoming new requirements, and your fast response to them. It was just amazing. I just regret that I was so busy at that time with the other jobs I could not spend any social moments with you and your nice family. Thank you for all your help and the friendly atmosphere you provided. I will be happy to work for you at any moment in the future. All the best!

Basement floor

We decided to develop our basement but wanted heated tile and knew it was something we weren't willing or able to do ourselves. We had several quotes and found that Vatzek's was the most detailed by far. He provided us with dates that he would be available to complete the project, and stuck to these dates. From the day he began, he took a lot of care in preparing his work area, and protecting our house from any potential wear and tear from the project. At the end of every work day, he took additional time to clean up especially on our main level. Vatzek is extremely knowledgeable in his trade and was always willing to answer any questions we had. We cannot say enough about how professional he was while in our home - and our two dogs were very accepting of him too (which was not the case with previous contractors). Vatzek was organized, extremely particular, not willing to take short cuts, dependable, and took pride in his work. All of this resulted in an amazing new basement floor! In addition, the quote he provided us with at the beginning was the amount that we paid, even though there was additional time needed in preparing the floor and there was also an unforeseen delay as one of our heated mats was the wrong size (our fault not his). We love our heated tile and are looking forward to enjoying many years with it! We would highly recommend Vatzek to anyone who is considering any kind of tile work. He would be a 10+ in our books!

Thank you .

I am happy that I had a chance to meet and work for Lucia and Mike. They are very nice people and it was also a pleasure to do business with them. I appreciate their cooperation from the beginning to the end, their manners,and their understanding. I especially appreciate their patience and flexibility (when one part of entire process was taking longer) and the help and friendly atmosphere that I experienced. When it comes to working for people Like Lucia and Mike, I try to work even harder to feel fair with receiving so much from them.

Laundry and Hallway Floor

Due to our washing machine malfunction and continuous drip we were forced to remove damaged laminate flooring and partial drywall in the lower hallway and were forced to renovate the laundry room. We decided to use tiles matching the existing bathroom floor and making that space more appealing and functional. Vatzek was one of the three contractors that we asked for a quote. His estimate was not the lowest, but he impressed us with his vast knowledge, honest advice and detailed calculations. No hidden costs, no gimmicks. He also made sure there was no trace of dampness in the cement floor prior to commencing. Overall we are very happy with Vatzek's craftsmanship, work ethic, site cleanliness, scheduling and punctuality. And the end result is outstanding ! We love our "made over" laundry and elegant hallway! We actually asked Vatzek if he could come back in Spring, as we would like to use the remaining tiles on the stairs and at the main entrance. Thank you Wacek !

It was a big pleasure to meet Eva and David and work on their project. The trust and respect I was given, their interest in the details of the job, and the help they offered were a few of the things which helped our job go smoothly and make our job to go easier and more enjoyable. They showed high manners during communication when going through all the business issues.They also put extra effort to allow me to start my work earlier as my schedule sometimes changes due to unexpected problems from the other tradesmen.
I will be happy to go back and do more work for Eva and David.
Thank you Eva!

Bathroom Floor tile

Waclaw (Vatzek) was extremely professional and meticulous. He came to quote out bathroom floor tile. He purchased the tile through Olimpia at his cost. He advised us to use 8mm thick 12x12 inch tile for the floor so it would not crack. He finished the tile with schluter, removed all garbage, and caution taped the bathroom off so it would dry with no disturbances

Tiling a walk-up bar

Vatsek did excellent quality work with what he did - floor and backsplash tile setting. Very meticulous. However, he left the job unfinished - the final backsplash grouting. I missed an appointment because of a family crisis. He seems to have taken offense at this and "can not continue business" with me. It's an odd situation. I can recommend the quality of his work. Just don't miss any appointments.

I appreciate the trust that Bob had with me, as he shared the front access security code. It is unfortunate that we were unable to conclude this job. Vatzek,
