From the first phone call to the final day of work, Brian Brennan and his team from Custom Design Tile (CDT) were professional, prompt and courteous. The advice and planning prior to the start of the project was great - Brian did a fantastic job in helping guide us through the best type of tile for our project and outlined each step of the proposed project. Once the project began, the attention to detail was evident and Brian always checked in with a daily progress report. CDT did an excellent job of keeping the work area and other areas of the house clean throughout the duration of the project. The end product is a beautiful, functional shower. We couldn't have asked for better. (Scope of Work: Master Shower)– Megan - Annandale, VA
CDT met all expectations that they set aside from minor setbacks and were quick to respond to emails and voice inquiries. The work itself was fantastic. Anyone who was in my house doing work was discrete, professional, and skilled. I can't recommend this company more and would call them again in a heartbeat for this kind of work. While they are not the cheapest, you get an accurate estimate and exactly what you pay for. For example, the difference between the budget set for tile and the actual cost (after we went to a showroom and picked it out) was off by only a couple of dollars. His design recommendations were spot on as well. Highly skilled and highly professional.– Dan- Manassas, VA
Brian was a great and collaborative problem solver and great to work with. The jobs started as promised, were completed on time, and the workmanship was excellent.– Jane - Fairfax, VA
Overall it went exactly the way I hoped it would go. The job was completed in a reasonable amount of time and I valued the crew's hard work ethic and their willingness and eagerness to make sure I was happy with their work. I was also impressed with their attention to detail which is very important to me. Job WELL done! I highly recommend Custom Design Tile!

Another reason we decided to go with CDT was because of the owner Brian. Having remodeled a house in the past and worked with many different contractors, Brian was a breath of fresh air. He listened to what we wanted, provided his expert opinion, had helpful design ideas, and most importantly Brian is an honest person.– Sarah - Arlington, VA
I recently hired Custom Design Tile to perform some new tile work in my home (the standard job) and the replacement of a larger exterior tile job that was botched by a prior tile contractor (the hard job ). The experience was excellent starting with the involvement of the owner - Mr. Brian Brennan - who personally came to the site to discuss options and provide advice and counsel on everything from materials to the best ways to install the tile. Brian was a great and collaborative problem solver and great to work with. The jobs started as promised, were completed on time, and the workmanship was excellent. I was and am very pleased with the experience and I would heartily recommend this firm to anyone needing interior or exterior tile work done. (Scope of work: Powder Room and Patio)– Robb - Reston, VA
It was actually very difficult to find a contractor who wanted to take on this job. We needed someone very capable - it was complex with a lot of moving parts - but we contacted several contractors who typically do larger additions and they were not interested in a project this "small" (as it was not a complete kitchen remodel). CDT fit the bill and from the very first meeting, Brian Brennan inspired our confidence. He understood exactly what we wanted to do. He brought out his carpenter to help brainstorm so that we had a better idea of what was possible before we were asked to sign a contract and get started.
The job included the following: removing a load bearing wall and beam (moving beam into attic to make ceiling flush), constructing a custom "L" shaped island, replacing all counter tops, installing new backsplash, installing under the counter lights, installing recess lighting in kitchen and attached living room, painting. It took about 5 weeks.
Because there were so many elements, there were a lot of different people who came through: architect, carpenter, drywaller, painter, electrician, plumber. Everyone was exceedingly respectful and friendly. Especially compared to other construction we've had done, I couldn't believe how well they contained the project and kept the rest of our home protected from dirt.
Brian was involved in every step of the process. He made himself available whenever we had a question come up (by email, phone, text); nothing was too small. He was flexible; as usually happens with this type of project, we added a few things (and subtracted a few things) as we went along. I believe he came to the house most days to check in. If he wasn't there, Mike, another representative from CDT was there. We really enjoyed working with them both. I would recommend CDT without reservation (in fact, I've already recommended them to friends). We'll hire them again in a heartbeat for our next project. (Scope of work: Kitchen)– Tom - Arlington, VA
This is company is FANTASTIC. The demolition took only a few days on each bathroom. Brian's team removed all debris and cleaned up the area. Then the fun began. The secondary bathroom was first to be finished. They left the original tub (our request) and tiled from the tub to the ceiling and installed glass doors, new shower head and new faucet. Once that was completed they tiled the floor. What a beautiful bathroom this turned out to be. We used chrome fittings and earth color tile. Our girls pained the bathroom Mediterranean blue and I stained the cabinet wood dark. It looks like an island paradise.
Now... the Master Bath. OMG, I've got a spa bathroom, just like in the HGTV shows. IT'S GORGEOUS!!! We have a frameless glass shower door with the same earthy color tile for the walls and floor. They also installed built-in shelves. We had the garden tub with a step which left little room between the tub and shower. Brian suggested that we remove the step and retile the tub decking with the same style of tile as is in the shower. He sure knows his craft. What a difference. We went from an old, tired, 1980's bathroom to 2015 spa bathroom.
Custom Design Tile is an honest, courteous, extremely skilled company. I would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone who is looking to remodel kitchen or bath– Jackie- Manassas, VA
It went great! Brian and Mike did an outstanding job to get us exactly what we wanted. They took the time to work with us and asked us the necessary questions to ensure the job went as promised. They ensured that the job progressed as expected so there were no surprises at the end. Their co-workers were friendly and professional at all times and ensured the job was completed on time.

Custom Design Tile replaced our master bedroom shower. Brian Brennan (Owner) was a pleasure to work with. His estimate was competitive and reasonable; his men were courteous and very careful about cleaning up, as well as protecting other areas of our home; the work was done in a timely manner and explained carefully along the way. Most importantly, the shower was well done and turned out beautifully. Brian was on site every day to make sure everything was going as it should; in my experience, many contractors do not do this. I'm planning another project and will definitely hire Custom Design Tile to handle it. (Scope of Work: Shower Remodel)– Janet- Arlington, VA
