Born in San Pedro California, Will arrived in San Diego serving in the US Navy at the age of seventeen. When he wasn’t at sea, Will worked weekends as a tile setter apprentice to supplement his income. Over the next six years Will worked for a couple of tile shops increasing his knowledge and skills in the all aspects of tile setting, with an emphasis on custom cement installations.
After receiving an honorable discharge from the USN, Will decided to pursue a career as a Tile Setter. Initially working with larger contractors on large commercial and residential projects, the tile setters were expected to meet quotas. Unfortunately, with the agendas of the large companies, the tile contractors were often forced to sacrifice the quality of work to meet the demand. Cutting corners to cut costs seemed the norm, and it seemed that nobody cared. Will has always considered himself a craftsman and he knew there had to be a better way.
It was during this time that Will decided on starting his own tile business focusing on residential tile work. In 2003, Pro Tile Installation was born. With an emphasis on providing quality work, and dealing directly with his clients, Will set out, not only to set tile, but to set the tile, “right the first time”. He would provide his clients quality work at very competitive rates with installations that they would be proud of and be able to enjoy for many years to come. With his focus on the residential market and customers who understand the true value of quality work. This is what Will is proud to offer!
