Half a century of experience

We’re masters of our craft

Our head tiler, Antonino Gaudioso, pioneered the tessellated tile industry over 50 years ago, reviving an industry that had been dead for over half a century.

Half a century of expertise: Our head tiler has refined the art of laying tessellated tiles for over 50 years

Another some 15 years later in 1982, he started Olde English Tiles ™. With over 35 years of tradition, beauty & know-how, we know exactly how to lay a gorgeous tessellated tile floor. No one in the tessellated tile business can claim this type of experience.

Installing a tessellated tile floor requires more than a competent tiler. A tessellated tile floor is ‘art you can walk on’; it requires a craftsman. Our tilers use proven techniques that have stood the test of time.
