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.

I wrote a letter to him & we communicated much during the process in regards to our project & was there every day during, except the end of day 4 . My installation was a kitchen backsplash installation as a gift for my parents of the tile they had purchased. To start on the positive, Mark was hired as he was prompt to respond, has almost a 5 star rating, & was a perfectionist in his words during his phone call, a veteran & also a Christian. All during our phone interview & of course seemed to have fair pricing. I sent him photos of the tile, & I did underestimate the outlets from my guess of 5 to 10, as it was my parents home, not sure. I sent him an email to correct this prior to him arriving the 1st day. He was tired & didn't read it. We adjusted for the increased outlets & any complexities at the end of his 1st day, raising the quote $100, substantial, but understanding in that he had not seen the job until the 1st day. He was physically at the home when we adjusted for amount in writing. The job was originally quoted at 2 days...the job took 4. The equipment was late & he apologized on the 1st day. They worked until 3pm to offset(?), which extending his day (I guess, in my mind maybe 5 would have been normal?). There was much grumbling about the challenge of this install from the time of arrival until completion. He later at the end of the 2nd day when leaving at 2pm said he would need additional funds, as the job was taking longer, increasing the quote by 38%. This increase was even though they were stopping their day at 2pm...when I have also dedicated my off days to align with the job taking longer...thus costing both ways for me. The end result on the last day was my parents had to complete the transaction, as I had to go to work! Mark did not fully clean the grout from the tile. My brother & mother did. A phone jack had grout inside & was no longer functioning for my parents & had to be repaired & re-grouted. While the overall alignment was not bad visually, there were two raised areas where the tile was not floated level. I had to figure the edges without him asking me, just he just leaving for the day. They also did not seal the tile, left grout on the screws of the outlets & on the tile dried.... & most important is Mark never responded to my email to try to correct the job. I am including photos, but photos do not fully describe the experience.

We hired Mark to tile our house, which was a pretty big job. He had to remove the carpet and the old tile. The floors needed to be prepped and some cracks needed to be attended to. But you know how it is when you buy a house. One thing just seems to lead to another. Mark was already on site, and willing to add to the scope of the job. He pretty much ended up redoing the whole house. All of the floors, about 1600 sq feet. Painting of the whole house. Backsplash in the kitchen. From beginning to end Mark was with us for about three months. Mark is polite and professional. He is a man of his word. As he puts it, he is "old school". Work hard and take pride in your work. That is exactly what he does. He is a perfectionist and wants the client to be happy. Mark priced the job very fairly and we are thrilled with the results. Our house looks brand new. Most of the time while this work was underway Mark was on his own, as we live in New York. I felt perfectly comfortable with this. Mark is scrupulously honest, totally trustworthy. The guys who work with him as helpers from time to time are great, too. Now that the work is done, we are looking forward to enjoying our beautifully redone home. If you are considering hiring Mark I urge you not to hesitate. You can't go wrong.
