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. 

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.

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.

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’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?

Ceramic and porcelain are some of the more popular types of tile, but there are a few differences: 

Porcelain Tile

Ceramic Tile

More durable, have a longer lifespan

Cheaper, easier to install

Better for high-traffic areas

Recommended for interior floors, walls

Slightly more water-resistant

Softer, easier to cut

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

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 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.

I was probably the customer from hell but NewTile was so patient and worked with me throughout my renovation. They were very responsive in providing a quote and scheduling the service. Because I was also in the process of getting new countertops, they were very flexible by coming out and tearing out existing backsplash then came back at a later date to install new backsplash after countertops was in. Not to mention I had a few scheduling hiccups with the countertops crew which pushed the backsplash install behind but they were so very patient with me. I will definitely be using their services again and highly recommend this company if you want high quality work and excellent service!

Vinny and Rodrigo did an absolutely fabulous job of removing the brand new subway tile kitchen backsplash (that I hated) installed by my builder and replacing it with beautiful glass tile! They work quickly but were very precise with each measurement and tile placement and seemed to really take pride in their work. They did an excellent job cleaning up behind themselves and left nothing for me to do but enjoy my beautiful new kitchen backsplash! I love it!

Vinny did a fabulous job on our glass tile backsplash installation. He was super polite, efficient and knowledgeable. He actually saved me money by having me return the unnecessary items the tile shop insisted I needed for installation. I can’t say enough good things - I will definitely use them for future projects.

Tim and Kristina did an amazing job installing tile in our bathroom as well as a kitchen backsplash. Their prices beat out the other quotes we received, the quality of their work was impeccable, and they communicated throughout the process. Works recommend them to anyone needing tile work.

Vinny was extremely responsive and did everything we asked prior to the work. He was accommodating to our grout request and agreed to begin work within a few days of estimates. Once the install came, Vinny and his partner did a great job of prepping the drywall, installing and finishing the backsplash, and cleaning up before leaving. I would highly recommend Amazing Tile.

Excellent job removing and installing a new backsplash. Gabrini gave great advice and recommendations to make the project turn out better than we envisioned. He was priced very well and very professional. He left the kitchen spotless when he was done with demolition and with instillation.

First I want to say that I rarely write reviews, but I cannot tell you enough how much I enjoyed working with Gabrini. He did a fantastic job on my backsplash and his attention to detail is incredible! He was very helpful and had valuable imput when it came to my specific project. Not only did he install my backsplash, but he mixed me a custom grout color to fit my needs. He is very efficient when it comes to communication and even accommodated my installation date change. I would highly reccomend Gabrini to anyone with tile needs and would hire him again in a minute!

I hired NewTile Backsplashes to install some slate tile in a herringbone pattern in my née kitchen and couldn’t be happier! The owner, Luciana, was extremely kind, responsive, and knowledgeable — he even gave me some advice on picking the tile. His team was courteous and quick and I’d hire them again for tiling in a heartbeat.

Adi did a great job on our kitchen backsplash. He came and reviewed the project and quoted us a fair price later that day. He showed up on time each day the following week and methodically and skillfully completed the project. The job required many creative solutions because our drywall was in bad shape and countertops weren’t flush to the wall. Adi cleaned up the drywall and installed new drywall where necessary in order to solve the problem. When it came time to install the backsplash tile, Adi was meticulous about getting the pattern perfect—great attention to detail. We also had Adi fix two drywall issues in our ceiling and after he patched and painted you would never know the issues had been there. Great work Adi, and it was a pleasure getting to know you! We’d definitely recommend his work and would (and likely will) hire him again.
