Lettered to Perfection – Little Tile Guy

September 15, 2017


This 1200 sq. ft. install, using local slate and wood-look porcelain tiles, is in the Factory Point Place in Manchester, Vermont. The building, a historic bank, is being remodeled to accommodate new businesses. Oliver Ledbetter, owner of Little Tile Guy, LLC, designed and installed all of the tile.

There are two inserts in the tile – one with lettering and the other in a geometric shape designed to mimic the ceiling. Each insert measures 5 feet by 6 feet.

“I got to design these inserts in my head and create them as I went – which was fun. We custom-made the letters and then fit the smaller slate around the accents,” Oliver explains.

He started Little Tile Guy in 2012, and he works alongside his wife, Breanna, to complete all the company installations. Oliver’s been in tile for the entirety of his working life, and after years of trying competitor’s products, he’s settled on ARDEX.

“We love our ARDEX products – after many years of trying all the available brands!” Oliver says.

He used ARDEX X 5™ Flexible Tile and Stone Mortar and ARDEX UI 740™ FLEXBONE® Uncoupling Membrane in the featured bank building slate install.
