Frequent Asked Question
Q: Where do I get corner shelves from?
A: Shower shelves are custom made, on-site bullnosed fabricated. Not available in store.
Q: Can you supply shower shelves for our project?
A: I do not supply shower shelves, only fabricate them in my own jobs.
Q: Our tile contractor could not deliver a high-end Thassos marble job as promised. We asked him to bullnose the corners, he mitered them instead, but chip very often and looks horrible. He did not know what bullnose was, did not have the proper skills nor the right tools to fabricate the bullnose. Very unhappy with the outcome of the job. Wasn't he supposed to know how to work on marble tile?
A: Contractors often do not know the natural stone trade, let alone fabricating bullnose. Most of them don't even know bullnose exists. So, I would say, you hired the wrong guy for the job. It happens at large scale.
Q: How do I know the tiler is experienced enough with natural stone?
A: You look into their work history. Talk to them in person. Ask questions related to the job. A natural stone contractor should know how to fabricate bullnose and be able to work with 1/16'' narrow grout joints. If your preferred contractor cannot perform these services, he is not a genuine natural stone tile installer.
Q: What is the difference between mitering and bullnose?
A: Mitering is cutting the edge on a 45-degree angle vs bullnosing the intact edge.
Q: Should I miter or bullnose the marble?
A: Bullnose is a must in natural stone jobs, that leaves the marble edge intact and strong. Looks professional and luxurious vs mitering that weakens the structure of the stone, it chips very easily and does not look as elegant as bullnosing. Period!
