Immaculate tiling...simple

Established in 1957, John Foley & Son have grown to be the largest independently owned tiling contractors in the North East.


With over 50 years of experience working in the residential, commercial, retail and industrial sectors, we have worked on projects of all sizes, ranging from an individuals bathroom or restaurant kitchen through to an industrial unit or shopping arcade.


We are proud of being a family run business that still lives by our founder, Jack Foley's sole belief today: immaculate tiling... simple.

True, we may not be the cheapest tile merchants but we offer the best value-for-money in the North East. We pride ourselves on the quality of our tile laying workmanship and our customer service. After all, word of mouth is the best form of recommendation.


It is integrity that has allowed us to build up an ever expanding client base of customers of all sizes, from a residential bathroom to a large commercial shopping development. Integrity, a word we continue to hang our cap on.


All of our employees are at the top of their profession, having progressed through our tiling apprenticeship schemes to become fully qualified tilers and craftsman. They now have their own apprentices to ensure that the tiling skills that set us apart in our humble beginnings are passed down.


Over the last 50 years, we have built up an enviable level of experience in all aspects of tiling. It is this experience that allows clients to place trust in our opinions and recommendations. If a tile is not quite right, a certain finish or trim will not work, we will utilise our knowledge to find a solution that will stand the test of time.
