Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by conducting an online search for tilers in your area. Ask if the tiler can conduct a consultation through a video call instead of a traditional site visit to limit exposure. It’s also wise to confer about the current state of the pandemic and ensure that it’s safe to complete the project now. If not, discuss postponing for another time. 

Which is better: porcelain or ceramic tile?

Porcelain tiles are more durable and have a longer lifespan than ceramic tile. If you're installing flooring in an area with high traffic or lots of heavy furniture, porcelain tiles will look better for longer. They’re also very easy to clean and maintain. Porcelain is also very water-resistant and can hold up in places like bathrooms and rooms with jacuzzis, hot tubs, or swimming pools. 

But if the cost is your top priority, ceramic tiles are often more affordable. Ceramic tile prices start as low as $0.45 or $0.50 per square foot, and porcelain tile starts at $3 per square foot.

Does tile flooring increase home value?

Having a tile floor may increase your home’s value, but it might depend on the type of tile you install and the trends in the real estate market.

Chat with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out what types of home repairs and remodeling projects you should tackle before you put your home on the market. It might make sense to add new tiles when renovating your kitchen or bathroom, for example. 

If you decide to include new tiling in your home remodeling project, contact the best tile installation pros near you to get free estimates.

Can you tile over drywall?

Yes, it is possible to lay tile over drywall. If you’re looking to lay a tile backsplash in your kitchen, you can certainly do it yourself — but hiring a professional may save time. 

Before you tile over your drywall, make sure the wall has a smooth surface with no bumps or cracks. Start by using a compound to seal up any crevices, then sand the drywall and clean up the dust. Then, lay a coat of primer on the drywall to get it ready for your tile. 

How long does it take to lay tile?

Depending on the pro’s expertise, the size of the project and its complexity, the time it takes to lay the tile will vary. For some projects, it may take a few hours to lay tile while others will require several days of work. 

When planning a tiling project for your home, get free estimates from the best tile contractors near you and ask them how long it would take them to complete your job.  

Can you tile over tile floors?

Yes, you can lay tile over existing tile floors (or a backsplash). Although it’s generally best to pull up your old flooring, you can simply place tiles on top if your existing floor is in good condition.

Before you start, examine your tiles carefully for mold, cracks or unevenness. Provided none of these is an issue, you can begin laying your new tiles. 

But if this is your first time laying tile — or if you want to ensure that the job is done right — save time by hiring a tiling professional near you

What do you need to lay tile?

If you’re laying a new tile floor, you’ll likely need an assortment of tools and supplies, including (but not limited to):

  • Tile
  • Tile adhesive
  • Tile trim
  • Tile spacers
  • Underlayment
  • Sealer
  • Caulk
  • Level
  • Goggles
  • Gloves
  • Trowel
  • Carpenter’s square
  • Grout
  • Sponge
  • Tape measure
  • Etc.

If you don’t have all of the tools, equipment and skills necessary to lay tile in your home, consider hiring one of the best tile contractors in your area.

What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?

Ceramic and porcelain are some of the more popular types of tile, but there are a few differences: 

Porcelain Tile

Ceramic Tile

More durable, have a longer lifespan

Cheaper, easier to install

Better for high-traffic areas

Recommended for interior floors, walls

Slightly more water-resistant

Softer, easier to cut

What is the best tile?

There are many different types of tile to choose from, and they all have unique benefits when it comes to aesthetics, longevity, durability and safety.

Porcelain and ceramic tile are often popular in kitchens and bathrooms because they are water-resistant, making them a go-to choice for floors and backsplashes. Marble tile is also a great choice for kitchen and bathroom floors, and granite tiles are popular for countertops. 

Consult with a tile installation professional to figure out what type of tile you should install in your home.

How can I find out if a tiler is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To identify essential service providers during the pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website to find a list of recommendations.

A list of national recommendations can be found at CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. This service lists 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that are approved to continue operation during the pandemic. But note not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

First off, I reached out to Anthony about doing a tile demo and new installation of porcelain tiles. It wasn't even a full hour before he responded asking pertinent questions about the project. We got down to brass tacks about doing 1000 square feet, and that we'd need the tile to be bought as well. He and the crew he hired all showed up on time every day of the project. He made sure our requests were clear and how we wanted the tile to be laid. We suggested a 50/50 lay-down but he actually said the better route was the 1/3 method, which, as it stands is the much better route as tiles tend to have a bow in the middle which would be raised among other tiles had it been a 50/50 lay. All in all, the whole process and project went as planned and have no doubt about hiring him again for future projects.

Brad did a great job with our tile backsplash. He is responsive, and follows through with his promises. He provided me with a specific date and time for the installation, and he showed up on time and completed the job within his promised timeframe. Thank you Brad!

Kevin went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my backsplash installation. He mocked up a couple different pattern options for me beforehand, ensured my counters and cabinets were protected, worked quickly and efficiently and was extremely easy to work with when we had a scheduling issue. I would strongly recommend Kevin for any tile installations you have in mind!

FASA Tile did a kitchen and backsplash for our park model, the installer did a good job on the tile job but while cutting some tike he cut into our new laminate countertop. Two tiny thin 2” cuts. He also was not very aware of keeping our floors clean while going in and outside to use his wet tile cutting machine. Was it a perfect job, no. But the owners of the company came as soon as they were called about it, they offered to do whatever they could do to make it right for us. Even offering to replace the countertop, which would have been crazy expensive. We didn’t want to do that. They gave us our money back and some extra grout. We’re looking at finding something to seal the tiny cuts. I would use this company again due to how professional and honest these people are.

I contacted Kelvin to install backsplash in my kitchen and Master Bath. He did an Excellent job. His quote was very budget friendly. I soooo appreciate and respect the fact that he honored the quoted price, stuck to his two day time limit and was wonderfully punctual. He was in and out. Kelvin is very detailed oriented which reflected in his willingness to correct a flaw in work done by another tile installer. I am so pleased with the results. Thank You Kelvin!

I would recommend Atomic and I have already recommended them to a friend. There were unexpected circumstances that could not have been anticipated, and I was treated with respect and communication. The crew who installed my tile did a fantastic job and I love my flooring. Adam truly knows flooring and what is needed so you like the end result.

I normally don’t write reviews, but I thought I would share my experience. I hired Kevin for his many great reviews, but there were bad reviews that raised concern, specifically in regards to being rude, having an attitude and leaving the job site unfinished. I hired him to do a mosaic herringbone pattern (in sheets) which he normally does not do but he was agreeable. Day 1 was fine he came on time completed the mortar portion. I emailed him that night the areas of concern mainly spacing between tiles, uneven edges and uneven trim, which he said he would fix no worries. Day 2 he fixed the areas of concern, but after grout was installed you could see the unevenness of where the tile meets the counter. This was pointed out and I guess he can’t take criticism. He literally told my mom who was with me to STOP talking because it wasn’t her house. When I told him not to speak to her like that he literally snatched the money off the counter grabbed his things and left the job pretty much saying that he wasn’t going to fix anything, got in his truck and peeled off. At least the job was pretty much complete before he stormed off. That being said my criticisms: 1. Don’t be rude to people in their own house, learn to take criticism and be respectful. People are paying you money for your services. 2. The tile is uneven at the bottom looks wavy. 3. Spacing is off between tiles. 4. Grout missing. 5. Grout on underside of cabinets. The job looks good from far but up close you can see the imperfections. In all, I would not recommend him and you get what you pay for!

While Darryl is a very polite man, he is terrible at communicating. Many of my phone calls and text went unanswered. The day we had scheduled our tile install he didn’t show up and never answered the phone nor reached out to us. My gut was telling me he wouldn’t show but I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt as we was a nice guy. I’m not sure how he runs a business like this while he fails miserably at being in contact. I would not recommend him to anyone and am very disappointed that I wasted my time on him instead of getting the project done; because of his extremely poor professionalism our project is now on hold as I am very close to my due date (which I will say he was aware of as well). Thanks for nothing and lesson learned!
