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.

Mr. Lebron did a great job on the two tile projects that I had. Good suggestions were given on laying out the tile on both projects. When it comes to installing tile,Rafael is a professional.

Julio was absolutely fantastic! He was on time every day and couldn’t have been a better choice for our tile needs. He even went to the store to purchase what we needed, when we bought the wrong stuff. I would HIGHLY recommend him to any and all! Thanks Julio!

I needed tile installed in approximately 550 sft and I hired Unique Home Solutions. Diego and Rick have taken utmost care and paid attention to every detail. They are very respectful and open to feedback. They have invested extra time to make sure every small detail looks perfect. Flexible to work with, hard working, friendly and professional as well. If you are like me and want people who can work together with you according to your needs, Diego and Rick are your guys. I have seen other guys who are more experienced than these guys but they don’t listen to you or work with you guys. I strongly recommend these guys for any tile or bathroom remodeling jobs.

J.A.W. Construction & Renovations came to my rescue! I had a slow leak in my master bathroom shower that was leaking into the bedroom soaking the carpet. James worked with us and completely repaired and renovated the shower. While he was here we also had him renovate our hallway bathroom tub and tile. They did a great job! We will definitely call him for future projects!

I hired Vladimir because he came right out, gave me a good price, and could start the job right away. I had some others come out that ended up working for a company and they quoted a much higher price and could not start for 2 weeks. Vladimir is still working on my job, but he is very nice, considerate, tries to save you money and shows up on time. Another big thing is, he didn't ask for any money up front. He definitely knows his job as I purchased odd shape tile for my patio but he figured it out without a lot of waste. Very happy with my choice! **UPDATE--I am having Vladimir come back to do more tile work as I was very happy with the finished product. He's very fair and does right by the homeowner, hard to find these days!

I scheduled an appointment with 4 Sons Restoration for them to clean and seal about 500 square feet of tile floors of the house I just purchased. I couldn't believe how much better the floors looked! My grout went from black to a light grey. Mike was a very nice man and completed this job alone within an hour and a half. He was very personable as we swapped life stories while he cleaned the floors and I painted a room. I genuinely enjoyed my experience with this company and will be hiring them in the future to clean my back patio Thank you so much!
