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. 

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a tiler when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a tiler in your area, stay at least 6 feet away from worker(s), don’t shake hands, sanitize all involved surfaces and use digital payment platforms instead of cash or a check. During the consultation, put a plan together to help ensure everyone's safety.

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 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.

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.

I was so impressed by this company. I had a very bad experience when my tile was placed by the tile installers - and they offered multiple solutions, were very helpful and went above and beyond trying to get the problem solved. They do much more than just tile cleaning and sealing - I will be using them for any future projects!! Very pleased !

Greg knows his stuff and he takes pride is his company and the services provided. He matched the tile and design pattern perfectly, and the finished product flows as a continuous extension of the inside living area. His installer, Phil was professional, dedicated and meticulous. The installation of my lanai tile project was of the highest quality in every respect. I highly recommend Manatee Flooring. They’re awesome!

I found out when moving out of a big apartment complex that I was required to have professional tile/grout/carpet cleaning. I looked everywhere and the ONLY reasonable price I found was Floor Medic. It gets even better than the price, however. They truly did WONDERS on what I thought was "already clean" tile and carpet. Just WOW! Professional, punctual and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this company to anyone and everyone.

I can’t recommend this company enough. The pricing was a fair amount. The workmanship was out of this world. Don’t bother searching around for a tile contractor. This is the company believe me. Quality, Quality, Quality.

Mark responded quickly to our request and was available to clean our tile floors in our time frame. He arrived when he said he would and did a great job.

The service was delivered exactly as described. Our tile, grout and carpeting was all cleaned and the grout was sealed. All the flooring in our home now looks clean and we are delighted. And at a very reasonable rate.

We had water and a little mud in our home from Hurricane Ian. We needed the tiles cleaned as well as to remove Sheetrock dust. I contacted Name It We Clean through the Thumbtack app and Mark responded in a professional and prompt manner. They quoted a reasonable price so we had them also clean our windows. They arrived on time and did a great job on our tiles and windows. We highly recommend them and believe you will have a pleasant experience as we did.

Claudia and team were fantastic to work with. Clear and responsive communication, professional service, good value, and willing to go above and beyond. Finished our tiling job early and on budget and will use them many times again.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Agron's work! Finding someone who is reliable, professional and truly cares about the quality of their work is not easy to do. Agron checks all the boxes. He was a delight to work with and he did an impeccable job updating the tile in two bathrooms, one above a tub and one was a standing shower. His work is top notch, and his prices don't break the bank. Seriously, don't hesitate to hire him. I'm his newest #1 fan and will be calling him again in the future for more tile projects. He's a true craftsman.

If you want a tile job done right by a professional, then hire OSI Flooring! Responded quickly and came and gave me an estimate, and despite running into a couple challenges, finished on time on budget. He is a meticulous professional who never takes a shortcut at the expense of quality. Outstanding job by a consumate professional at a reasonable price!

Such a pain free experience! I work from home and I am constantly on back to back calls. These guys made it easy for me to just unlock the door and let them go to work on my kitchen backsplash. I LOVE the tile work. They had great recommendations on the grout choice (coffee bean) and even recommended other enhancements. Finally excited to use my kitchen and entertain.

So the work that he did was great...he was hired to fix a dozen issues and he did them all. Only wished I had hired him from the beginning. All the porcelain tile work he did came out better than expected His job was done and the cleanup was great also. He has a great ability to figure out solutions to many problems. He also asks if you want some a special way or look it is up to you. I will definitely use him again and feel comfortable recommending him to someone.

Recently, I contacted Forza Contractors regarding installing back splash stone kitchen tile for my home. Carlos immediately responded and gave me an estimate. Within days of his visit I purchased the needed material and the job was professionally done. The installers were very knowledgeable and articulate with their work besides being very pleasant. The whole experience was awesome. The job was done to my satisfaction and they left my home the way it was when they arrived, CLEAN. I would highly recommend this contractor if you need any work done. I give them a five star rating on this project!

I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Capote Flooring. 100% the best value! We were on a budget but the team at Capote Flooring treated our shower retile like it was a top dollar project. They took their time, paid attention to detail, and listened to every request I had. Anytime I had a question Desiree answered right away and let me know what I needed to do. The gentlemen who did the work were talented and respectful. I had my 3 young children home all week and they were not distracted or upset by it at all. I will absolutely use them again for any of my flooring or tiling needs. Thank you so much for a great job.
