Hi, my name is Rob Tester. I started my career in tiling over 20 years ago as a merchandiser for Bellegrove ceramics. Work included tile displays for B&Q, Topps Tiles, Great Mills and Focus Do It All. From there I moved to British Ceramic Tiles where I worked as a rep for the south of England, from Cornwall to Norfolk and everything in between. 

I moved to Spain to learn various tiling techniques and worked on many projects, from a large water fountain decorated with my own pebble mosaic design, to an Olympic sized pool in Marbella tiled in pearlescent white mosaics. I returned to the UK and set up Stonefish Mosaics in 2005. I have been trained by renowned pebble mosaic artist Maggy Howarth, and have worked on my own bespoke commissions from my workshop in Surrey.

I am an accomplished tiler, specialising in all aspects of the tiling industry. I regularly tile bathrooms, showers, wet rooms, floors, kitchens, pools, porches and pathways. I have a very good eye for detail, setting out focal points and using the tiling to accentuate crucial fittings and features. I am experienced in mosaics, ceramics, porcelain, natural stone, quarry and conglomerate tiles. When quoting jobs, I always choose the very best materials available on the market, and offer a full 'belt and braces' approach to your installation. I am proficient in the use of uncoupling membranes, tile backer boards, epoxy grouts and a wide range of waterproofing tanking options. 

I focus on residential work, and enjoy meeting new customers and seeing their faces when the job is complete. The satisfaction of a job well done is what drives me, and I get repeat work from most of my customers. I am friendly, courteous, and have the utmost respect for the homes that I work in. I appreciate that it can be a bit weird having someone working in your house so I keep noise to minimum, mix all adhesives and grout outside, and have multiple tools to aid in dust limitation where necessary. For larger jobs I occasionally work with my brother who is also a tiling specialist. 

I look forward to hearing from you
