Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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’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. 

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.  

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

Consult with a top tile contractor near you and get free estimates on how much installing tile will cost you. 

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.

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.

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!

Marco and his crew did an amazing job installing wood plank tile in our downstairs, bathrooms and laundry room. He not only quoted us the lowest out of 5 companies but I don’t really see another company being as thorough and high quality as our tile installation job then his team. We are going to be hiring him again for counter installation in the next month or two as well because of how impressed we were with his work. So glad we found him and would definitely use again and recommend to anyone looking for tile or vinyl installation.

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!

Andrew was amazing. He arrived on time to give us an estimate on the job we needed done. He arrived on time on the day he told us he could perform the work. He had to remove some broken tile and install new tile. His work was impeccable. We could not tell the difference between the new tile he laid and the present tile. He’s very friendly and professional. I highly recommend All Pro Custom Flooring.

Mr. Dunham installed tile backslash in our kitchen. Prior to the installation date he clearly communicated with what I need to provide and what he provides. Upon punctual arrival he went to work and took pride in his work while respecting our home. He placed throw downs to cover our floor tile and left our home cleaner than it was prior to his arrival. The tile installation was top notch. Looks amazing and his pride in work shows. We have two (2) dogs and their curiosity and occasional barking was not disruptive to his work stride. He was kind and petted our dogs. Professional work.

We are so pleased with how our tile turned out by our fireplace! Brad the Tile Guy did a fantastic job and walked us through the entire process. He never added on any additional materials without checking in with us first. He arrived on time each of the three days of working on the project, was very professional, and worked efficiently throughout the entire job. We would hire Brad the Tile Guy again in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone looking to get tile installed!

WE FEEL LIKE WE HIT THE LOTTERY by finding Alex - he is truly one of a kind! Not only is he professional, friendly, reliable, and honest, but he's also a perfectionist!! Over the years we have hired dozens of contractors for various jobs and had the tile replaced in several houses and we have always counted the days until they were finished because it was such a messy disruption in our house; but not with Alex. Every morning we looked forward to him walking through the front door with a smile, ready to work. His attention to detail was impressive - he installed 8" x 48" Porcelain tile and every single tile in the house is PERFECT... there is absolutely no tile lippage anywhere. We can't wait until we can hire him again for more projects in our house. I have already confidently referred him to several friends and clients and I will continue to do so. Do yourself a favor and call him TODAY!

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!

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!!
