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.

Herman did a great job with our kitchen floor! He was very quick to respond to my request for a quote. He removed the old wood, added tile and made the floor look beautiful. I’m looking forward to having A&I back again when we need more tiling!

SAVE YOURSELF! NOT A QUALIFIED CONTRACTOR! POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS! Recently hired this company to install my wall tile in my shower. He responded to my request right away to have it installed ASAP. (Yay) I purchased the material and sent him an image of it to verify that he could install it. He said he could and showed up the next day at 9am(yay). . When the work was finished I went up and took a quick look from the door. (I have an 8 month old who was needing my attention at the same time). All looked well! I paid him and he left. Within 20 mins of him leaving I went in to have a better look. To my horror all the chevron glass mosiac tiles were chipped, cracked or missing colors on the top and bottom. EVERY.SINGLE.ONE! When I sent him a text questioning it he replied that’s the way it supposed to be. I’m in the home remodeling industry and have seen plenty of nice glass tile projects that don’t look like this. I sent the images to a contractor friend and he replied that the guy didn’t use a glass blade. When I sent him the contractors text he replied do you think your blade would cut better then mine. Through later conversations he said he would come fix it and when I asked him how he would do that he refused to answer. I explained the only way to fix it was to remove it and start over or buy a couple squares and use it to replace the cracked ones. Since it was every single tile on the top and bottom this would have taken him the same amount of time as uninstalling and reinstalling. He replied that he didn’t know how to fix it but wanted to take a look. I scheduled with him the next day at 7am but later realized I couldn’t do that as I had a conference call. I was also paying for a quick install and he was now having me extend it. So instead of dragging it out I asked him to reimburse some of the money I paid him. Because I asked him for it he told me to “be a decent woman” “you have no shame” “what does your husband think”? (I hired him, paid him and have had all the communication. Regardless of course my husband thinks it looks like someone took a hack saw to glass tiles.) Here’s my take on this: - if glass tile should end up like this why not pull me aside and let me know hey not sure if your going to like this. Do you want to move forward or would you like to use the other tile throughout? - why lie via text (picture attached of text) about how this is normal. He also told me he’s been doing this for 40 years. - Don’t insult your customers. Im a reasonable person. If he wouldn’t have lied or started to degrade me I would have worked with him. I’m in the remodeling industry my contractors are booked to June so I needed someone new. Everyone I know uses the contractors that I’ve found on Thumbtack. I’ve had people use my contacts for kitchen & bath remodels and one was used to put a sun room on a friends home. Where I failed: - before he left I should have taken a closer look and addressed any issues right then and there. Prior to paying him. - if you look at his images of examples of his work he has only ceramic jobs. So that should have told me he’s not comfortable with glass in the first place. - Venj LLC is also not a legit licsensed company. If you google it or go to other similar sites this contractor does not come up at all. Should have done more research on my end prior to hiring. This contractor still refuses to give me some $$ back and instead of responding no or coming up with an alternate solution he keeps sending me degrading texts. Save yourself from an unprofessional and unqualified contractor.

Salvo and his team at ISA Euro Construction (including Franco, Vito, and Pete) are fantastic! Very professional and polite (and ALWAYS on time), they worked very hard and did an incredible job in a very short amount of time. The crew laid Durock and tiled a 900 square foot area (with plenty of complicated angles and cuts) in 4 days, the results are outstanding. The floors are perfectly level and spots that I expected to be problematic (imperfect subfloor, etc.) look flawless. I would not hesitate to hire ISA again for any kind of services they provide given how good of a job they did.
