Roger Dean, Rye Ridge Tile, NY

"Rye Ridge Tile has done business with Hiram Bueno for more than 20 years and we respect his integrity, honesty and craftsmanship. He has worked with many of the best builders and designers in Westchester and Fairfield Counties. Hiram can set anything from an intricate mosaic to a simple tile floor."

Peter Devin, Stamford, CT resident

"Initially I hired a cut-rate contractor who ruined the job. Hiram swooped in like Superman and saved the day. The completed tile now looks awesome. He was prompt, courteous, trustworthy and provided a great service for a very reasonable price. I've hired other tile installers over the years and they always made a huge mess with dust, debris, and tile saw residue, but not Hiram. Even the demolition process was spotless! Hiram went the extra mile to make sure our job came out perfectly and that's a rare thing these days. I highly recommend his service."

Will Jameson, Interior Designer

"I've had the good fortune to work with Hiram on numerous projects for over seven years. There are three main attributes that keep me coming back:

Planning & Attention to Detail

Before he starts a job, Hiram thinks his jobs through to its conclusion, often laying out dry tile to ensure the best possible layout. This means no unexpected problems half-way through the installation.

No amount of planning or beautiful products amounts to anything until it is actually installed. Hiram's work is always beautifully executed and never rushed.


Hiram is always professional and courteous with everyone he works with. You just can't help liking the man."

Brigitta and Werner Boensch, Greenwich, CT residents

"Over the years Hiram has renovated four bathrooms in our house and done other stone/tile work for us. He is a master of his craft and a pleasure to work with. We have always been happy with the way our ideas were realized. Through Hiram's patience, insight and diligence in the design process we invariably arrived at a concept that produced very successful results. We recommend Hiram highly, without any reservations."

Chiara Gilioli, Darien, CT resident

"We were very pleased with Hiram's work. We hired him to install floor and wall tiles on our bathroom. Hiram worked with his son and we found that they both were very respectful of our space. They did an excellent job with our tiles and suggested different approaches to solve certain issues that came up during the tile installation process. We are very happy with the way the bathroom came out and want to thank them for their great work. We plan to hire them again!"

Lee Handelman, Ideal Tile Of Stamford, CT
