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. 

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 install backsplash?

The time it takes to install backsplash depends on the size of the area and the type of materials you’re using. But generally, it’ll take a few days to finish the project. Porcelain or ceramic tile may take less time than that, while very small glass tiles or complicated designs are likely to add time. 

Chat with the best tile specialists to find out how long it will take to install a backsplash in your home.

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

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.  

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.

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.

Can you tile over a tile backsplash?

Yes, you can tile over your existing kitchen backsplash if you want a fresh, new look. This will only work if the surface is smooth and there are no cracked or uneven backsplash tiles in the wall. If you have a few problem tiles, simply remove and reinstall them before you tile over the wall. 

In general, it’s better to start with a blank wall. However, you may save time by simply tiling over your existing tile backsplash. When in doubt, always consult a tiling professional.

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.

Excellent work and on time. Will use him again for future work. Very happy with the service He installed tile floor.

Beautiful tile work, very nice guys but... They scratched the tub, incorrectly installed the tub spout, and didn't set the toilet correctly. I'd use them again for tile work only and leave the plumbing aspects to another contractor.

Wagner was extremely friendly and professional. Met with us, prior to starting our exterior walkway and entrance tile project, to go over the details. Arrived on time and ready to work with his coworker. Highly skilled. Will be recommending him to anyone seeking a highly skilled and professional tile installer.

Either the installer was intimidated by the numerous tile mosaics I have made through out my house, that he passed on the way to the bathroom I wanted tiled, or the rainbow flag on my porch may have been the cause. He measured the shower, said something I could not understand and walked out the door.

Daniel and Peter helped me with my bathroom project a week ago. The project including replacing toilet, removing all the tiles on the floor and in the shower, installing durock, installing new tiles and a lot of details. First of all, their price was very reasonable.For example, installing a new toilet only charged for $25 while on amazon I got a quote asking for $125. Secondly, they always focused on details and finished the job nicely. During the project, they were very patient with all my requests and able to come up satisfied solution immediately. Finally, the job had been done with everything looked pretty nice. So in summary, I am very satisfied with their hard work and I would strongly recommend Daniel and Peter!

I had laminate flooring that I wanted to change to tile. Bianca and Basacco Solutions completed my tile installation and I am more than happy and impressed not just with how my new tile floor looks, but the level of professionalism, talent, sacrifice, attention to detail, and respect that they showed in the process of doing the work. You can tell that they actually have a passion for, and care about the quality of the work, that they do which I highly respect! I would definitely do business with Bianca and Basacco again, and would highly recommend their services to EVERYONE without reservation. I really can’t say enough great things about this company! Even if they are busy and you have to wait for an appointment, do yourself the favor and wait because for the quality of work that they do, and the amount of respect that they have for you and your home, it’s truly worth waiting for them. They just went above and beyond, and for that I am truly grateful!Thank you again Bianca and Basacco for a job very well done! Photo #1: Old Laminate Floor Photos#2 & 3: New Tile Flooring
