Owner/Operator Dustin Johnston is a Peterborough local. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Emily Carr University and over 10 years of tiling experience. In his spare time he makes pottery, brews mead and practices yoga.


At Silica Tile Design we specialize in everything tile, from complex continuous tiled floors to barrier free bathrooms /showers and enclosed shower systems; ceramic, natural stone and large format porcelain.

Hire a "handy man" or GC who does "a bit of everything" and you may get a cheaper installation, but you may also get a finished product that is not installed properly leading to complications not far down the road. Cheaper is very rarely better. Have the job done right the first time by tile installers who specialize in their trade, take pride in the work they do and enjoy doing it. It's always cheaper to it right the first time. We are consistently expanding our knowledge of innovative products in the tile industry and currently evolving our skill base for all tile applications. 

We absolutely stand behind the longevity and functionality of our installations and use only the highest quality products available. Every aspect of your project is taken into consideration and we use the best possible products available to complete the job to your satisfaction. 

Rates are competitive and job specific.
