Gene Shields is an artist, a floor artist!” -David Richards in Merion Station

“Gene Shields has done amazing work for me, and there is no one I would rather use for tile work or hardwood floor work. I totally trust Gene, value his experience, and find him a joy to work with and have in my home. He is dependable, trustworthy and conscientious. He has done new construction for me, as well as restoration on a 140 year old house. Gene is a contractor that does work the right way. He is “the real deal!” -Deann Mills

“Gene Shields does great work. The attention to detail was beyond what we expected, and I would be surprised to see that from many other contractors. He’s a name you hold onto and recommend to friends and family.” -Lou in Lafayette Hill

“Gene did a great job on our bathroom tile job. The work looks great and I think the room was cleaner when he left than when he showed up. Everything he did was very professional.” – Dominique in East Passyunk

“When we hired Gene Shields to do our guest bathroom, we had a pretty complicated and creative plan with an accent tile wall, walk-in shower, different grout colors and four different types of white tile. The final product really is amazing and is better by far than our master bathroom. We’d hire Gene Shields ten times out of ten.” -Steve in South Philadelphia
