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. 

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. 

Does a tiler need to enter my home?

If the tiling job is located in your house, the tiler will need access to your home. The exception to this would be if the job was taking place in an outdoor area like a backyard.

If a tiler does need to enter your home, take strong precautions. Sanitize all surfaces, avoid being in the same room and conduct payment using digital platforms. Discuss a safety strategy with tilers in your area beforehand.

Can I use digital payments to pay for tile installation, replacement or repairs?

Digital payment platforms are popular in a wide range of service industries, and many tile installment, replacement and repair professionals now accept them. Common platforms include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. 

Start with an online search for tile companies near you. Ask them if they accept digital payments and which types you can use. Then, put a strategy together to follow social distancing guidelines.

Do tilers offer remote or virtual services?

Because tiling is a manual, in-person job, it is not typically considered a remote project. But if you come across a profile that states the tile company is offering remote services, ask them what those services include.

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.

Excellent tile work, attention to detail, trustworthy and accountable. It has been a pleasure working with Jeff and I am confident our shower is finally done right!

Evan was a joy to work with and a really nice guy. He removed all the ugly white bathroom looking tiles from my fireplace (not an easy task) and replaced them with beautiful limestone tiles. He took the time to make sure it was done to perfection. He is very talented at his craft. He covered everything and made sure everything was spotless before he left. I will never use anyone else.

Terrible experience with GandF - I'll start by saying Will was great, Michelle was not. Their work reflects the price point, I suppose you get what you pay for. - My start date was delayed twice and they never showed up on the first day. I was told they were "leaving soon" at 12pm and did not hear back until 3pm that they weren't going to make it, they were just leaving another project. (supposed to arrive at 10:00am to start demo) - Two weeks into the project (on a Friday) I was told they wouldn't be here until the following Wednesday as they had another project. One would think you'd give a customer more than a day notice before pausing their work for another customer (considering my start date was delayed twice for another project that ran long and I was going on two weeks with no kitchen access). Michelle was extremely defensive when I questioned why my project was being put on hold, and went on a rant of all the "extras" I requested to be done at the end of the project if they had time (none of which had been started so it was somewhat irrelevant). Also, they were more than happy to help with the "extras", so I was caught by surprise with her rude and off-putting text explaining "all the things they've done for me". One thing to note, the extra work was more business I was paying for. - From there everything quickly went downhill - they mis-measured in the kitchen and added the extra cabinet to my bill. Had I not questioned why I was responsible it would have been left for me to pay. I was told "we didn't know we couldn't put the fridge against the wall" they were well aware of the fridge I purchased, clearly you can't put a french door fridge flush against the wall as the door won’t open all the way. - They removed the trap from my bathroom sink and forgot to put it back on, a few days later I noticed soggy toilet paper in the drawer and immediately sent them pictures of the water leakage and they admitted they forgot to put the trap back and that they would fix the drawer (the bottom of the drawer was warped). The following week they claimed it made no sense the wood above wasn’t damaged but the drawer was (the drawer bottom was particleboard, not wood like above material) and they weren’t going to fix it. We’re now going on week 5 (still no kitchen access when I was told they would take 1 week) for 2 sliding door + window replacements, new fireplace tile, a shiplap accent wall (which they installed the wrong way) and a very small kitchen remodel. . I was handed a stack of home depot receipts and demanded to review with them for payment ten minutes before my work day started with no notice. Several items were added to my invoice that were included with installation (as stated on the invoice), as well as other random things like a tile cutter, face masks, 5 lbs of nails, sandpaper, extension cords, etc. My invoice was also updated with over $200 of “ window and material pick up charges” that they offered to do, but added on last minute because I expected decent service for my $20,000 job. I had paid for the cabinetry and windows in advance, then was questioned why I didn't offer to pay more by week 5. Since no payment terms were agreed upon, I'm pretty sure it's the business owners responsibility to request payment and provide you with receipts and updated invoices along the way. Long long story short (I could go on), I was told they wouldn’t come the last day to finish because working 9-5 and waiting until I was off work to review the project was “too long of a day” and I was called “ungrateful” for my request…needless to say they were fired from the job. Michelle was extremely disrespectful, my husband and neighbors witnessed her yelling rants more than once. I’ve now brought in a LICENSED professional who has to fix their mistakes – incorrect faucet installation, uneven paint job on the accent wall (which was blamed by the “dark paint” color I chose), sloppy hallway cabinet installation, poor backsplash install around outlets that requires them removing tile and pulling outlets forward so they're flush. Also, they rarely work a 6-7 hour day, which is apparently why it took 5+ weeks and the job is still not done. Do yourself a favor and hire a licensed professional who is capable of doing quality work (and providing quality customer service). Lesson learned!
