Did you know? Our website has a place where you can ask Pete the Pro any tile installation question you have?!? In any case, we were thrilled to find this story from a Pete the Pro fan. Please take a look:

“Hi Pete, I don’t have a real question today, you’ve helped me out so many times in my tiling adventures. Just a story for you this time. Saturday morning I was getting my first cup of coffee when I heard a familiar voice on television. When I turned around, there was your smiling face on Saturday morning DIY show. I was happy to see your face in my kitchen! Keep up the good work and thank you again for each time you’ve encouraged and mentored us novices! Many Thanks.”
