Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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 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 get my grout clean?

Dirt, mildew and grime can make your grout lines look downright tragic. If you have the ability, DIY tile and grout cleaning is definitely doable. Your main obstacles are time, project size, availability of the right materials and effort. Your first step in tile and grout cleaning is making sure the surface area is cleaned of basic dirt and buildup and wiped down. Be sure not to use a bleach-based cleaning agent, which could react dangerously with the vinegar used in later steps.

Depending on the delicacy of your tile and grout, it may be wise to start with water and friction before proceeding to a cleaning solution. In the shower you can spray the area while brushing gently, or use a spray bottle filled with warm water on countertops or floors. If water won’t do the trick, try a solution of equal parts warm water and white vinegar, and repeat the gentle brushing motion. This combination should begin to lift dirt and grime from the grout. For additional tile and grout cleaning power, baking soda applied directly to grout lines and sprayed with your water vinegar solution can help suds off sticky grime. If your DIY cleaning solutions aren’t doing the trick, store-bought sprays and pastes may have more cleansing power. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning and enjoy your sparkling clean grout.

Tile and grout cleaning supplies include:

  • Old standard or electric toothbrush
  • Stiff bristle brush
  • Spray bottle
  • White vinegar
  • Commercial grout cleaner

How much does it cost to clean tile and grout?

The national average cost for tile and grout cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Pros may charge a flat fee or by the square foot. Rates can vary depending on the type of tile and grout you have (more delicate tiles may mean specialized products or careful handwashing), how dirty your tile and grout are, and what part of the country you are in (regional labor rates and costs to do business affect costs). For example, one floor cleaning company charges 75 cents per square foot for tile and grout cleaning for projects that permit cleaning by machine. Another company may charge $30-$50 per hour for hand-cleaning of tiles. Companies often charge a minimum fee for services to ensure their business expenses are met when they accept a job, no matter how small. In addition, a tile and flooring cleaning professional may charge added fees, such as $25 or more, to move heavy furniture or appliances.

The work that he did do was good. He even suggested a better edging that he said he would come back and install (which he eventually did after several attempts to get him out to do it). He cut a tile wrong and said he would come fix it but after many attempts, in which, he no showed for an appointment and having to reach out to him instead of him telling me he wasn’t coming the tile is still not fixed. Now with a hurricane approaching the finishing of the job was put on his back burner and I was even asked if fixing my tile was a “priority” for me at the moment. (After I had to, once again, ask him if he was going to keep the appointment, which he hadn’t intended to.) Not the best way to handle your customers.

If I could give a thousand stars, I would. He was very patient and honest with my many questions about choosing the right tiles. He was also very good about communicating when he would be there and how it was going. The job he did is perfect. Thank you so much!

James is very professional. He was 10 minutes early and went to work immediately. I couldn't believe how clean my grout and tiles looked when he finished. It looks like I live in a brand new home again. I will definitely hire Eco-Earth cleaning services.

Lukaz and his team were AWESOME with our tile project. Had a big issue when I demo'd the wood flooring that a big part of the living/dining room was not on the same level as the rest of our home. He discussed our options and we went with what was best. It turned out great!!! Definitely works hard to ensure we were happy with our flooring. GREAT JOB!!

Folks, if you’re looking for a tile installer, look no further!!! Lucas and his team are fantastic; from the very beginning I felt very comfortable with them and knew they would deliver an excellent product. My floors look like mirrors; the transitions are seamless and the spacing perfect. The workmanship is so nice that I’m hoping he will be able to do a couple more jobs for me. My home is my castle and they’re making it look like such! So grateful!!!

I had my tile floor cleaned and sealed by James. He responded promptly to every communication prior to the service, arrived early, and did the job efficiently and thoroughly. When faced with a possible issue - another contractor needing access to the space while James was working on it - he came up with a solution instead of making it a major issue. I was very happy with James' service, price, and performance and would recommend him to anyone needing his services.

Raphael the owner of golden floors is extremely conscientious fastidious and very detailed and his work. Raphael laid out the floors in two different patterns and since I'm remote sent me photos asked me which one I prefer and gave me his recommendations which we both agreed was the best installation application for my condo. Raphael is very cooperative does his work and doesn't bother me about details or change orders. We have a contract and we both have followed it to the letter both without argument or conflict and I would highly recommend golden floors to anyone looking for exceptional tile installations.
