Outstanding company from top to bottom. You can always tell when a person has chosen their job profession because they actually enjoy doing it. They came to fix a water spot on my ceiling and offered a very reasonable price. While they were there, they also decided to patch a hole in my tile and help me install a ceiling fan for free! I will always use and recommend this company for any future home repairs.

We recently bought an older fixer upper and Jose has helped us with several jobs. He removed popcorn ceiling, texturized, put in new drywall and pot lights, did painting, installed floor tile, and is now tiling my new shower. He has a lot of overall construction experience and brings important knowledge to the job. His work has been quality and looks really nice. His pricing is very competitive and he is responsive and easy to work with. We had a few last minute delays on our end getting materials and he kindly rescheduled several times. We are going to work with him on some outside hardscape and fencing as well. We highly recommend Jose and his team. (I will add some photos soon)

David McArthur is reliable, responsive and professional. He provides a very reasonable price for tile installation. He and his helper did a great job and they were very friendly and completed the work in time as promised. My front patio now looks exactly as I hoped (see photo)! I would highly recommend him to anyone and we will continue to hire him for more projects around our house.

We had a leaking dishwasher that apparently had been leaking for some time without our knowledge and caused some water damage. We had him demolish part of our kitchen because the problem was somewhat extensive and put in new cupboards and a kitchen sink, as well as repair some drywall and he did a brilliant job. I will definitely hire Miguel in the future without hesitation. I contacted Thumbtack late Friday afternoon, approx 5-6pm and I saw that I had a response from Miguel by 8.15pm. I replied not expecting a response until the next morning, but instead I had an appt for Miguel to come out and inspect the job the next day and he started work on the following day (Sunday) and completed the job on Monday. Miguel's prices are more than reasonable and I am glad I found him.

Dennis is great! I hired him to install some tile in our kitchen where a previous homeowner had removed the backsplash to put in a window, but never finished the job. He was quick to respond, gave a reasonable quote, gave me some suggestions about where to look for tile to match the rest of the kitchen, and even tried to find the tile himself. Once I found/ordered the tile, he made himself available on a Saturday to install it. He showed up on time, did an excellent job, finished in just a few hours, and cleaned up afterward. I hope to use him again when we remodel our bathroom.

Alex just completed a gorgeous tile shower surround in my vintage home, and it is even more beautiful than I imagined! From the planning stages to the final sealing and buffing, Alex was a true pleasure to work with. His commitment to his craft is unparalleled; he has amazing artistic vision, unwavering integrity, and always strives for perfection. My house is almost 90 years-old, and many craftspeople (plumbers, etc.) can't get out of here fast enough; in contrast, Alex was confident he could do the job and showed an admirable willingness to maintain its historical character and charm. I can't emphasize how much I appreciated his approach and care! Because of its age, my shower created a special challenge: nothing is level or square. Alex was determined to make it right: he had to do lots of extra preparation, and he had to cut nearly every tile specially. His idea for a custom niche is stunning and was executed meticulously. The overall result is a work of art! In addition to the high quality of his work, Alex is incredibly hard working and honest. Another bonus is how neatly and cleanly he works; unlike some craftsmen who leave behind a mess, from demo to completion, Alex was respectful of my space and always left it looking as spotless as possible. On top of everything, Alex is an incredibly kind and thoughtful person with a great sense of humor! It was a genuine pleasure to have him in my home; he earned my complete trust, and I wouldn't even consider having anyone else install tile in my house. I can't wait to have him tile my kitchen. Alex has more than earned my very highest recommendation!

Lauro and Omar did such a great job installing tile in our bathrooms and laundry room that we had them also install our hardwood floor throughout the house and do the back splash behind the kitchen counter. We are very pleased with the results. They are very fair priced and very polite. Looking forward to having them working on my next project.

Joe was very professional. came in and gave a quote and helped us with design ideas on a shower stall that looks great. Joe then showed up with a helper and knocked the job out quickly and cleanly. Now we have a fantastic looking shower stall and we couldn't be happier with Joe's work. We would and have recommended Joe to our friends for their tile work.

After having a water leak, we decided to have the kitchen and family room renovated. This involved the replacement of floors, counters, sink and cooktop as well as refinishing extensive cabinetry. We were not remotely impressed by the first 4 or 5 contractors we called. We then had Morena Tile and Home Design come to provide an estimate. The difference was amazing. Sami and his team immediately demonstrated working knowledge of what needed to be done and how it could be accomplished in each area. After their analysis we did not look further because we felt we had finally found the contractor for the project. The quote was in the ballpark of what we thought it would cost so we did not even consider looking for a lower bid. The whole project started and ended in a timely fashion. The various workers were obviously experienced in their respective fields and performed beautifully. Even so, there was daily review and supervision of the project by a manager. I had heard nightmare stories about contractors from many sources but with Morena, we never had an unpleasant moment. There were no surprises or additional costs except for changes we requested. The attitude of all involved was so positive and friendly that we actually missed them when it was over. The finished product was impressive and as close as it can come to perfect. We are looking forward to having this company remodel other areas of our home very soon and highly recommend them. Tina T San Clemente, CA

Pedro did an amazing job w/ all of our tile work: he completed two bathrooms, and rebuilt our fireplace. He was very reliable, professional, provides high quality work/service, and fast...we also hired him to help with some custom cabinet/shelf painting, and that also turned out beautifully. We would definitely recommend him (and will probably use him again!)

I am so fortunate to have chosen the right man for the job. My floor looks like an art piece. The wall molding he choose made the room more elegant. In the near future I have more work for him at my home. He has gained my confidence and trust. One of the important things I liked was that he was able to solve installation problems and explained beforehand his reasoning. A great quality in my book. I have future flooring work already planned for him and I know his price is fair and affordable for me. Very happy customer

Nick replaced our master bath tile/shower surround including demo of old surround, raising shower head, replacing fixtures, adding new cement board, and adding new tile surround. We selected a classic white tile with glass inlay since that bathroom is fairly small and it would've been too much to have big tiles all the way to the ceiling. He was very easy to work with, very fair in his estimate, very clean and neat, cleaned up his mess at the end of each workday so we could still use our room, was great at brainstorming with me and flexible to adjust our design as we adjusted some minor things along the way, finished on time, and was very respectful to our family and our time as he worked in our home. I look forward to having Nick help us with other projects in the future. I highly recommend you give him a chance – – I think you will be happy you did.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to get tiling done?

You can install tiling on your floors, walls, counters, kitchen backsplash, outdoor patio and shower — to name a few places. Tile is beautiful, easy to clean, durable, and resilient against kids and pets. The national average for tile installation cost ranges between $490 and $750. Often, tile installation specialists quote a price per square foot for installation. Costs can increase if you want the pro to supply the tile instead of ordering it yourself. Other factors that can increase cost include specialized installation with a unique design that will require more labor to install.

Prep work will also affect tile installation costs. Demolition of the existing floor, counter or backsplash takes time and energy that will be reflected in the price. Necessary repairs, such as a sub-floor that needs bolstering before tile flooring can be installed, will also increase costs. For tile showers, one example of tile installation cost may be approximately $25 per square foot including all materials and labor. Average tile installation costs for backsplashes may run anywhere from $10 to $40, depending on the materials selected and the amount of labor required. The larger the area where tile is being installed, the lower the price per square foot will likely be. For example, a flooring pro may charge approximately $3.50 per square foot for wood-look tile installation in an area ranging between 6 feet by 24 feet and 8 feet by 48 feet.

How much does it cost to tile a shower?

The cost of tiling a shower depends on two main factors: the size of the shower and the quality of the tiles. In general, most professional tilers charge an average of $25 per square foot of tiled area and the national average cost for a tile installation project is $490-$750. The tiles themselves are the greatest variable; the cost depends on their size, shape, pattern and manufacturer. For example, tile purchased at a volume discount from a big-box store cost far less than tiles made in small batches by an artisan ceramics shop. Prices can range from as little as $1 to $50 or more per square foot of tile. Other factors that will drive up the total tile installation cost are grout and mortar, speciality tiles like bullnose caps or soap holders, and surface prep materials, especially if drywall needs to be replaced before the tile can be installed. Many tile installers will also remove and haul away any old materials from an existing shower installation.  

How much does it cost to tile a bathroom?

Tile installation costs are a key part of your bathroom remodel costs. The tile you select (which can range from under $2 per square foot to $50 per square foot or more), the demolition and repair work required prior to installation, and the size of the job will all affect cost. You can install tile in the shower, on the counters, on the wall or on the floor. The national average for tile installation cost ranges between $490 and $750. Bathroom tile is easy to clean and durable for daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom tile installation costs:

  • Tile installation at $25 per square foot of tiled bathroom area.
    • A standard tub and shower combo requires tiles for approximately 60 inches of length. Calculate wall height and add 30 to 36 inches of tub width for the walls at the head and foot of the tub. If the tile walls are 6 feet to 8 feet high, in this example, the tile installation costs would run about $2,000. Price includes materials.
  • Tile installation on a 3-foot by 5-foot regular tub and shower walls with an 8-foot ceiling: $1,450. Price includes materials.
  • Tile installation on a 3-foot by 5-foot regular tub and shower walls with a 10-foot ceiling: $1,650. Price includes materials.

How much does it cost to install a ceramic tile floor?

Tile installation costs for ceramic floors depend on the type of tile you select. You can purchase tile that sells for under $2 per square foot or tile that costs $50 per square foot — or more for artisanal and hand-painted tiles. The cost of labor to install a tile floor will also depend on the tile you select. It is far less labor-intensive to install a white 12-inch by 12-inch square tile than a 2-inch by 2-inch hexagonal tile with a distinct pattern. That extra time and energy equates to a higher per-square-foot installation cost. For example, a flooring pro may charge approximately $3.50 per square foot for labor to install wood-look tile in an area ranging between 6 feet by 24 feet and 8 feet by 48 feet. That same pro may charge $6 or more per square foot for a more intricate pattern, or a smaller space. Some installers may charge a minimum day rate for ceramic tile floor installation, such as $340 minimum per day, to cover business expenses and employee wages. If you’re looking to reduce costs, removing your existing flooring and handling any repairs needed can help eliminate prep work costs. Prep work may be charged per hour and could cost anywhere from $25 to $80 per hour or more, depending on the region and the type of repair work necessary.

How much does it cost to install tiles in a kitchen?

One of the most common kitchen upgrades is installing decorative backsplash tiles in the space between the counters and cabinets. It’s a chance for homeowners to get creative while also protecting the kitchen walls from splashes and stains. Like all tiling projects, kitchen tile project costs depend on the tiles you choose, installation materials such as grout and mortar, and any surface materials, like replacement backer board. The national average for a tiled kitchen backsplash is $490-$750. In general, pricing averages $10-$40 per square foot for installation, not including tile. Some professional tile installers have a minimum day rate for small projects, which averages $350.
