I have known Mariusz Chojnowski for several years since he first came to lay my beautiful Victorian pathway. I can highly recommend Mariusz as a diligent, courteous and highly professional craftsman. The quality and standards of his work are extremely high and he works extremely hard to ensure his clients are happy with the results.
I have had many builders through my house that have fallen far short of Mariusz' standards, so I always call him with any issue as I trust him implicitly to give me an honest perspective.
Mariusz has done a fantastic job for us in our front garden path. Very hard working, trusted and diligent. I would and have recommended Mariusz to a number of my neighbours.
Mariusz Chojnowski was employed by my company from 2010 to 2014.
During this time his timekeeping, work ethic, craftsmanship and eye for detail were all excellent. He carried out various hard landscaping duties which included many Victorian tiled paths and porches.
He now owns and operates Black Hat Tiling Company and I am as confident in writing this reference as I am in recommending him. His work continues to be of the highest standard and Marius often still assists on my projects from time to time.
Mariusz tilled both my kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is a fair size and
I had the whole floor tilled along with the walls, which included a mix of
brick retro tiles and small mosaic tiles. The result was great. In the
bathroom I had again both the floor and walls tilled. I opted to have extra
detailing added between the large wall tiles and the mosaic tiles and with
the bathroom being a fairly small space there was a lot of work involved to
complete this but the result was better than expected and very professional.
Thought-out the work Mariusz was very friendly, understanding and hard
working. I highly recommend his services and have done so to many friends
and family already. Five stars.
My ancient (1902) and once beautiful black and white checkered front path had over the years fallen into a dilapidated state. Although I had partially restored it about 20 years ago, over the intervening years it had deteriorated beyond further repair and replacement was the only option. I came across Black Hat Tiling quite by chance when Mariusz was building a path similar to my own in a neighbouring street. Later that week I asked him for an estimate which he promptly provided. Of course the job would not be cheap but if you want fine quality work then you must pay the market price.I hardly need say that the work was carried out thoroughly and professionally from the laying of a reinforced concrete base to the intricate task of laying of the small tiles with their complementary border to match the original Edwardian design. Mariusz had planned and prepared in advance for the tile fixing so that it could be carried out quickly and precisely. He arrived early, worked hard all dayand his work can only be described as of outstanding quality. I was delighted with the results and even my neighbours were impressed with the transformation of my front garden.If you demand superb tiling to add refinement and value to your property, I would recommend that you use Black Hat Tiling!
Mariusz recently tiled and refurbished our bathroom and decorated our entire hallway and stairs after some building work was completed. He is a very skilled tiler who takes a tremendous pride in his work and achieves fantastic results. He communicated regularly and readily with us over any issues that arose and made some excellent suggestions as the work progressed. He has a very good eye and clearly a feel for the aesthetics of his craft as well as the technical aspects. He is highly professional in his approach, courteous, always arrives promptly and works extremely hard throughout the day, taking very few breaks. If, for any reason he was delayed (and this happened very rarely), he always informed us in advance and explained the reason.
We are delighted with Mariusz’s work and have already booked him for additional work on our front path and patio. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Thank you for restoring my faith in tradesmen Mariusz! You completed the project while my husband and I were away and you did an outstanding job, it's pure perfection and we're in love with it!!
A fantastic delivery from a great outfit. Mariusz and his team’s energy and skills exceed expectations. The end result is stunning, i strongly recommend for all your tiling needs.
Thank you Mariusz for restoring our path. It looks absolutely amazing. Thank you for giving me the belief that "anything is possible". You certainly proved that even though I know you doubted that it would look as good as it does.
I think it will give pleasure to passers by for many years to come. So many people have commented on how talented you must be.
