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.  

What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?

Porcelain Tile

Ceramic Tile

More durable, have a longer lifespan

Cheaper, easier to install

Better for high-traffic areas

Slightly more water-resistant

Consult with a top tile contractor near you and get free estimates on how much installing tile will cost you. 

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.

Best Look Inc. did a fantastic job cleaning and sealing our tile. 3/4 of our home is tile and the cleaning and sealing of the tile was completed in about 2 1/2 hours. I will definitely use Best Look Inc. for future tile cleaning jobs in our home.

Benedicto did a superb job on our Mexican tiles. He spent a lot of time polishing and preparing the tiles And the final touch was the grout around each tile...it made a big big difference. He even replaced a cracked tile. Will wait a bit to place all the furniture back. See before and after photos. Amazing! Thanks Benedicto 🙏🏼

I recently hired Manny from Pegasus Tile to do tile work in my bathroom. I found Manny through Thumbtack. Manny responded quickly, asked appropriate questions about the job and charged a fair and honest price. Manny was prompt and reliable and extremely neat. I have other flooring and tile work to be done and will definitely be contacting Manny to do the job!

Moshe did a great job with everything he cleaned. Tile and grout, 2 area rugs and an upholstered chair. He instructed me as to how to spot clean the rugs and what the best way of mopping the tile floors would be. I got the feeling he knows his stuff ! I will definitely recommend Smart Carpet and Tile to my friends. Thank you Moshe.

The crew arrived on time and were very professional. They worked quietly and continuously. They moved all the furniture very carefully, and then moved it back again. They were very meticulous about paying attention to detail while grouting the tiles. José was great at answering all my questions, and explained to me what he was doing. They did an excellent job of stripping the old sealer, polishing and sealing the travertine. José had to replace a broken tile and he did it beautifully without damaging any surrounding tiles. Much of the house had tiles that were from 1960, and some had chips on them. He repaired the chips on the the porcelain tiles so well that you can barely see where the chips were. When they were finished, it looked like a new house! So beautifully clean, with consistent color in the grout throughout the house. The travertine shined! I highly reccomend Creative Tile Cleaning and Marble Restoration.

All I can see is wow. The services that Benedicto provided exceeded my expectations. I hired MP to try to clean up the dated worn tiles that I have throughout a newly purchased condo. I received a few estimates but Benedicto seemed most interested in the job. He went above and beyond by filling in cracked tiles, cleaning and shining up the tiles and using a white grout color seal to freshen up the old dated grout. Everyone thinks The tiles are new and that they are new. It was an amazing transformation. I just hope the color seal and shine last. I would highly recommend. The 1st two pictures are before and 2nd two are after.

We hired Benedicto and his team to clean and seal our newly installed white porcelain tile and grout in 2500 sq ft of open area and bathrooms in our new house. While we were hesitant to do it as our contractor told us it would not be worth it, We could not have been more pleased by the results, Our newly installed white porcelain tiles had so much "grout haze" that we were concerned that it would take several times to make it look perfect. MP tile did just that. They were very meticulous and detailed in their work and it shows in the result in both our tile and shower floor, They look amazing. Thank you

Jason completed a project for our bathroom - removing old tile and replacing it with new tile. He also had to remove the toilet and sink and replace them at the end of the job. We were beyond happy and are already looking to work together again on other projects. I would 100% recommend Jason! He was very communicative and checked in with us regularly to confirm we liked the tiles. He quoted us a fair price and the quality of his work is excellent! Plus just a very nice person to work with.

Danny S. did a such a great job refurbishing the travertine tile in our master bath shower, we hired them to also do another shower! Their work included cleaning the tile, applying sealant, touching up the grout, and replacing the caulking at the base of our showers with grout. Would hire them again.
