My name is Barry Grundy and I have over 20 years experience in the construction and renovation industry with the last ten of these as a tiling specialist.  

After years of renovating flats in London and a brief stint in Sweden, which allowed my creative side to flourish, I decided to concentrate all my time to tiling. I returned to Dorset and started working with a highly respected tiler (master craftsman) with 30 years under his belt. His experience was invaluable and the knowledge transfer gained has allowed me to be the perfectionist I am today. My hunger to perfect the craft with constant questioning "why are you doing it this way" and "why are you doing that" maybe led to his retirement... Subsequently, Igloo Tiles was born!

My experience is vast from simple porch ways and splash backs to elaborate exterior stone gardens and swimming pools. I also have a wealth of experience managing a team and working on commercial contracts such as a recent project for the MOD which involved the tiling of over 200 prefabricated modules for returning military personnel. I've also appeared and helped on the TV series Cow Boy Builders. My business has always been built on recommendation which is why I feel Checkatrade is a perfect forum to expand into. 

As one of only a handful of Dorset tilers who are members of The Tile Association you can rest assure that Igloo Tiles have met strict guidelines regarding the standards of work and business practice.

I offer free consultations, advice and estimates and look forward to exceeding your expectations on your tiling project.
