Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Tiling & Flooring Tool Reviews

We run into a lot of tile and flooring jobs. Consequently, our tiling and flooring tool reviews come with some experience. That means we help flooring Pros find things like the best cordless oscillating multi-tools. We also review key power tools like the Bosch TC10  tile saw and Ridgid 10-inch wet tile saw. More than that, however, we cover lots of hand tools. These help make quick work of flooring and tiling jobs. That may include Redbacks knee pads or materials like Pergo Outlast laminate flooring. Doing Tiling & Flooring Tool Reviews If you want to do tiling & flooring tool reviews, you have to involve the Pros who do it for a living. We have, on staff, guys who have run their own tiling companies. We also use other Pros out in the field who make their living doing residential and commercial tiling and flooring jobs. Put a new tool into the hands of a seasoned professional, and you find out quickly if it can hold up.
