Virtue Tile in Summit has the needs of every customer covered; just ask David Mozes who has specializes in home renovations for any budget. Recently, Mozes was available to speak about the business that has been helping customers for over 40 years in the same location.

“We sell tile, marble and stone and we are primarily here for residential remodeling projects, new home construction and custom home construction,” said Mozes. “The company was built on architectural specifications for commercial projects but we don’t do that anymore.”

 Mozes, who has been working at Virtue Tile for over 27 years, offers tile work renovations for just about any phase of the remodel. He spoke about the materials that Virtue Tile offers that can fit any budget: “What we have here is a pretty exclusive collection of ceramic tile, hand-painted tile, mosaics, but we don’t just offer the expensive stuff. We want the public to know that we have a lot of materials that are very reasonably priced that we use all the time.”

During the remodeling process a customer can often get overwhelmed, said Mozes.  With a staff of 5 employees Virtue Tile takes the confusion out of the equation. Moses said that two of his employees have been with him for 10 and 20 years separately so they have the experience to accommodate any room design. “We sell tile but we design rooms. We’ve always had the more exclusive design items that tend to be more expensive but we also use the less expensive items for basement bathrooms. Our clients know us as a high-end shop but we have items for every remodel.”

Mozes said that Virtue Tile has the capabilities to remodel an entire house; bathrooms, kitchens, entry-ways, sunrooms, basements but often have people come in to remodel a single bathroom. The business works very closely with the interior design trade and the architectural community but also works closely with the public through walk-ins or appointment. Mozes said that his staff always tries to educate the customer thoroughly when it comes to visualizing their dream: “We have very experienced people who know how to design. With the process we go through with the customer, through education and finding what works with their budget, it all works out and there’s always an answer for their needs.” said Mozes. He also said that the customer is allowed to take a few samples home with them, to see how it looks in their home before they buy. Some materials look different in the showroom then it does in a residential home.

According to their website, Virtue Tile looks at tile as an art form and feels it should be admired and enjoyed. They are quoted as having “a world library of natural stone” on display and have a “vast array of environmentally friendly and handcrafted ceramic tile, natural stone, glass and metal tiles,” that can transform any space in your home.

Virtue Tile is one of the businesses that designs everything by hand and doesn’t use computer programs in the design process. “We don’t use computer design. Virtue Tile has a lot of showroom books in our store to give the customer plenty of ideas about the remodel. Customers usually come in for an hour or two to look at the books and see what works for them. We talk color and pull out samples of our materials; encouraging them to take them home to check them out. We hand sketch any design for the customer.” said Mozes.

With economic times being tough for all customers, Mozes spoke about what Virtue Tile can recommend to help with the cost of renovations: “For customers who are more on a budget, we try and suggest glass accents or metal accents or something to punch up the look. Most customers around here are going for a more classic, simple look and they can get that through a few dollars worth of accents.

With Virtue Tile being in Summit for over 50 years, with three generations of workers in the family, they have been in the tile game longer than many businesses in the area. Mozes spoke briefly about how their customers say Virtue Tile has one of the finest collections of tile around and some clients say they’ve never seen anything like what Virtue Tile has to offer. For anyone who has questions about what Virtue Tile can do for them, please call David Mozes at (908) 273-6936 or visit them on the web at www.virtuetile.com.
