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. 

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.

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.

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.

overall tile installation is okay. A lot of miscommunication, he didn't bull nose tile or seal our travertine tile so the bath was rendered useless until I sealed it myself.

Mike showed up on time, ready to work, was collaborative and asked questions that related to my preferences. He followed construction standards for installing the waterproof backer board prior to tile installation. I'm happy with the quality of the finished work.

Christian and his team recently installed a 20’ ledger stone wall surrounding our fireplace and we couldn’t be more pleased with the work! I would highly recommend him for any Stone or tile project.

We had designed, engineered and built a wall (framed, electrical install and drywalled) in our Master Bdr. to accommodate a fireplace and tv. We tried to also install the large tile we selected, but quickly realized we didn’t have the correct tools for the size of tile. After several quotes we choose to work with Meza because they had a team who was available to complete the job within our timeframe. The Meza team wore masks the whole time, was very professional, hard working, punctual and respectful of our home. My only concern was trying to communicate with the two who were here for the two days it took to complete our project. However Jorge was accessible via text to relay our requests to his workers. Plus we used the iPhone translator that sometimes worked🥴. All in all our fireplace wall is stunning! Thank you Jorge, Ernesto and team for completing our vision!

Nick installed 36sq ft of kitchen backsplash and did a fantastic job! He estimated 4-5 days to complete the job but was done in 3 days. He pays close attention to detail and strives to ensure i was happy. He cleaned up my house very well after the job. I will definitely be using him again for other tile jobs! Thanks Nick, you did a great job!

These dudes rock ! We had a backsplash installed in our kitchen. We bought the tile ourselves and just needed the install . They did it for under $400 bucks and every other estimate was at least twice that price ! They both came out a few days after contact to give an estimate . He said they we're booked for a week and we could start the following week. Two days later they told us they became available and we're able to start the next day if we were available. The installer was very punctual, very professional and worked really really fast. He didn't even mind my 3 year old daughter bugging him and watching him the entire time 😆 I would suggest them to anyone around !

It started out great, I hired Mario to install a backsplash in my basement bathroom and my bar area along with some stone tile instal on the bar wall. His response was fast and he worked with our schedule to get the project done over a weekend. Once the project was completed and issues were discovered, Mario has refused to reply to my emails, phone calls, etc. There are a lot of tiles that were cut uneven and not installed properly, so now I have to find someone new to correct these issues. There were even some errors my husband pointed out to him and asked him to fix while he was working, but the next day (when my husband was gone) he ignored the requests and rushed to finish. As much as I would like to recommend him, please save yourself the troubles and look elsewhere. ***09/08/2020-update and response to Mario's response*** I won't argue with you further more, but there are still some things that need mentioning before I end this conversation. I have all my emails and messages between us that prove you only replied twice to my emails but we never set a time or date to get these issues resolved. I would have been flexible on the schedule had you responded back. As for the left voicemails, we haven't received any. I acknowledge that we responded positively initially, but for the final day of the project, I only saw the work once, when it was completed, before you left since I had to resume work. I did let you know that my husband would inspect the work more thoroughly and let you know of any issues. As shown in the attached pictures, there are many fixes that needed attention but were not easily noticable from my hurried inspection. I paid for the work in full, so I expected a great outcome which unfortunately never happened. Good luck to you and your business, but as it stands I will not recommend you or your services to anyone I know.
