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

With 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 but we offer the best value-for-money in the North East. Quality does not come cheap and ours is second to none. We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and our pre and post customer service. After all, word of mouth is the best form of recommendation.

Over the last 50 years, we have built up an enviable level of experience. 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.
