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. 

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.

How long does it take to install backsplash?

The time it takes to install backsplash depends on the size of the area and the type of materials you’re using. But generally, it’ll take a few days to finish the project. Porcelain or ceramic tile may take less time than that, while very small glass tiles or complicated designs are likely to add time. 

Chat with the best tile specialists to find out how long it will take to install a backsplash in your home.

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.

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.

Can you tile over a tile backsplash?

Yes, you can tile over your existing kitchen backsplash if you want a fresh, new look. This will only work if the surface is smooth and there are no cracked or uneven backsplash tiles in the wall. If you have a few problem tiles, simply remove and reinstall them before you tile over the wall. 

In general, it’s better to start with a blank wall. However, you may save time by simply tiling over your existing tile backsplash. When in doubt, always consult a tiling professional.

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. 

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.

What is the easiest backsplash to install?

Peel-and-stick tiles are the easiest backsplash to install, as they don’t require any materials or preparation work besides measuring. 

Ceramic tile, a popular choice for many homeowners, is a fairly simple installation choice for backsplash, and it comes in almost any color and pattern.

Glass tile is a bit more difficult to install than ceramic, while stone or marble tile tends to be the most expensive.

Reviews for Phoenix tile installers

Kevin did a great job installing a tile backsplash in our kitchen!

I decided to use Alex for my tile job based on the previous reviews I read on Thumbtack. I was not disappointed, Alex is as advertised, friendly, courteous, punctual and amazing with tile. He installed over 1600 sq/ft of tile and also removed and replaced our baseboards. His attention to detail was impressive. We were also replacing an old tub in our master bath and had to join old tile with new, we only had a few pieces of the old tile to use and Alex was able to bring it together in a way that we could not have imagined and it looked amazing. I would definitely use Alex again and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a tile installer!

Geraldo and his crew were excellent. They showed up a few minutes early each day. They were friendly, professional, and worked quickly. We had two rooms we wanted to have re-tiled. one had carpet and one had laminate. We bought the tile and grout and they installed it. You can't tell where the new tile started and the old tile stopped. They had the job done in two days. HIghly recommend!

Timeless Flooring LLC removed carpet and linoleum from the first floor of our new home and replaced it with tile. They also installed our new toilets after they tiled the bathrooms. I really enjoyed my experience with Timeless Flooring LLC, Valentino was always available to answer questions and give me updates. I will definitely use them again.

We had a great experience with Footprints! Payton, Tony and Dan were all wonderful to work with. They showed up on time and worked extra hours to get our project completed in time to meet our carpet installation deadline and all of the work they did looks amazing. I highly recommend this company to others and would certainly use them for tile projects in the future!

David was fantastic installing our tile. Our floor had more issues than we initially thought and not only did he not jack up the price, but he stayed an extra day to make sure it was done right. We loved how he made sure it was done right instead of half-assing it and getting done in the three days he quoted. We would definitely use him again. We would definitely use him again.

Kevin does an excellent job. We hired him to install our stainless steel subway tile backsplash. He has lots of experience, is super communicative, and is very friendly. His prices are reasonable and he gets the job done well. I like the fact that he does the backsplash over two days so that you have the chance to evaluate his work before he finalizes. He insists that you do not pay him until the end so he can guarantee you are happy. We would definitely use him again.

I hired Kevin to install backsplash in our kitchen. He was professional and thorough from start to finish and I would definitely hire again. He was communicative and I knew exactly what to expect, what the job was going to cost and what needed to be supplied. He was on time, took his time, making sure everything was put in correctly, explained any odds and ends that came up if a piece was not perfect, and made it very clear after laying the tile to carefully view it and let him know the next day if any pieces needing changing. Well, my husband decided that he didn't like the way the tile was around the window and had me ask Kevin to completely re-do it another way - which he did and not once complained or made it an issue. I was very impressed with his workmanship and how he just wanted to make sure it was done to our liking. It was done perfectly, there was no mess left behind and he left me with detailed instructions on caring for it and making sure it stayed in good shape. Thank you Kevin!!

WOW WOW WOW!!! Rob and his team made our HG Tv vision come to life. We bought a 1974 home with a sunk in living room and a refrigerator that had been moved from the kitchen into the laundry room. After initially meeting with Rob and discussing lots of our ideas, we realized that if we wanted to truly modernize our home, we needed to fill in that sunk in living room. Rob and his crew worked diligently with the concrete pouring company to make sure everything was level and perfect. Then we decided to throw the crew another curveball by asking them to relocate the fridge back into the kitchen. They came up with a great idea and paid meticulous detail to framing the fridge, moving the electrical, drywalling, retexturing and running a water line so that we would utilize the ice and water function of the fridge. It looks awesome! They also opened a wall for us to create more of an open space and removed some popcorn ceiling. They installed our new wood look plank porcelain tiles with no/ very small grout lines and laid them to look like as if it were real wood. It is so GORGEOUS. They topped it off by installing 6" baseboards and beautiful door frames that Rob helped us pick out that gave it even more of a Wow factor. Their pricing was outstanding and even though we threw them a curveball, they still finished on time of the original timeline! We completely trust Rob and the crew of JEQ and even gave them keys to our home during the renovation. Rob is honest, reliable, in budget, flexible, communicates great about details and really puts his heart and pride into his final product. He's truly someone that you want as your contractor. We definitely recommend Rob and the crew of JEQ and will use them in the future without hesitation. Definitely call them if you're looking to get work done!
