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.

The owner DeWayne was very responsive. We recovered a great price for demo and install of 3 rooms and master shower ceiling and bench. The quality of the work was great. I’d recommend Top Onyx for any future tiling projects.

Great job! They arrived on time, and did a fabulous job on the tile installation. They even fabricated a custom wood countertop for my house! Problem-solvers, professional, and highly recommended. I already have another job on the schedule with them.

After agreeing to Kevin's pricing and overall terms, he declined the project due to our selection of the tile design. He felt it "wouldn't look right in the space". If I'm not mistaken, he is advertised and hired as an installation contractor, not design consultant.

Vasile has been such a God send. I am building a new home and the builder has refused to install the shower tile and the flooring. Vasile has shown up, repaired the improperly installed drywall, and unlevel shower wall. He has given us ideas the builder never suggested could be done. So far our showers look amazing. We can't wait to see the job completed.

Daniel and his team were great to work with. They were incredibly responsive, which is super important to me. They completed the prep (backerboard, adding shower curb), built a custom size niche, installed shower/floor tile and shower glass for our bathroom reno and we’re very happy with how it turned out. Highly recommend!

Everything about Kevin was perfect. It started with the reviews I read and the photos shown from previous jobs. Kevin responded quickly, told me how much the job would cost and when he was available. He showed up on time, did everything he said he would and the job took as long as he said it would. He knows his stuff! I was very impressed when he finished the first day installing the tile he told me to look over everything and if there was anything I don't like he could fix it when he came back the next morning before he grouted. I have had 4 bathrooms showers/tubs tiled in the last year and no one ever, EVER said that... His prices were reasonable, he cleaned up and I am so happy with my new backsplash. Do yourself a favor.....hire him! I will be telling friends about him for sure.

Chaos. Horrifying Communication. Not worth it. We hired this company for a small townhome Reno: floors, bathrooms. They quoted us one of the cheaper prices from about 8 other bids- I would’ve paid more knowing what I know now, and what we’ve been through. Chaos started right away with not starting on the promised date, pushing it back 3 weeks, then 5. The people that work at Atomic that we were trying to communicate with on this simple project kept changing! Everyone saying they would be our point person, and they would never follow through! Finally got in touch with the owner, promised us he would make it right, promised us he wouldn’t charge us for anything outside the quote, never ended up following through on anything- and he himself was a challenge! He is super confrontational, even talking poorly about his workers, managers and admin staff, blaming them for all the miscommunication. Pure insanity. When they did start, there were days they didn’t show up, missed the finish date, even installed the wrong tile on the shower floors! The attitude was like “well I didn’t know”- I again asked for them to make it right somehow and pretend like our money meant something- the owner kept saying “stop trying to profit off of chaos” (???) and “we’ll we are not Home Depot” (we aren’t either). The company that they hire to do the actual work, Hector and his crew, we’re cool when they did show up, but they never had any idea what was going on either. We are in escrow with another property and we did not hire them for the Reno on that project. I do not recommend this company at all. IF YOU DO HIRE THEM- GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING FROM THE START! We were green, and trusted what all the folks from Atomic were saying, which was very different every time we spoke. The owner denied what he had promised. It was insane. We even contacted a lawyer because it was so bananas what was going on. Greatest part was paying the bill and being rid of these people, the chaos, stress and bad energy- and sadly, not the Reno :(
