Owner and Lead Installer Michael Lyons has worked in the building trades since he was 14 years old. In 1993, his stepfather introduced him to tile work and the love affair with the craft began. Michael views this trade as "artwork with power tools."

After completing college in 1995 with a degree in Biochemistry, Michael returned to the trades as feeding his family was easier to do with a tool belt on.

Since this time, Michael has focused on tile and marble and the work that supports it.

For 15 years, Michael worked 3rd shift on a traveling crew doing the tile work that was included in remodels at places such as TGI Friday's, Applebee's, Friendly's, etc.

In 2006, Michael relocated to Connecticut and began working as Lead Installer for Big Mike's Tile and Granite. When Big Mike retired in 2012, a void was created in the tile installer market in Hartford county and Lyons Pride Tile and Marble was born.

Over the years, Michael and Lyons Pride Tile have developed a reputation for excellence and it can be seen on every job they do. This excellence is echoed by clients and trade professionals who place Michael and Lyons Pride Tile at the top of their preferred contractors lists.
