ISA (Salvo) was a pleasure to work with. They were very responsive to all my emails/calls. When I chose to hire them, they were on time, very clean, and got everything done in a timely manner. They installed a kitchen backsplash and I absolutely love it. I have a few more jobs for their team and will be hiring them in the near near future. The pictures don't do justice on how nice the tile work came out.

Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

Tom initially came to do work with my electrical panel so that I could connect my double oven. I was in a pinch before the holiday - he was prompt in answering the service call, knowledgable and his confidence helped to ease my anxiety. After the great experience I had with Tom on that service call, I didn't hesitate to call him again to connect my sink, dishwasher, garbage disposal and cooktop once my kitchen remodel was complete. We ran into an unforeseen problem with the existing configuration of the plumbing and also had to go into the drywall to connect an electrical outlet for the cooktop. Tom had adequate staff to get this done within the day and although the project ended up costing more than he initially quoted me, the price was very fair for the amount of work that had to be done. I'm looking forward to having them come back to install new light fixtures and my kitchen backsplash. I've found Affordable Handyman to be my service of choice for all projects/repairs - big and small.

I hired Kosterna Construction to do various drywall projects, including building the framing and insulating the walls. They also put in support beams where needed, built a sub floor for tile in the kitchen, installed an exterior door with frame, built frames/molding around windows, evened out a sloping floor/ ceiling. I was able to buy my own materials and paid them for the labor. They are very experienced in all new construction and remodeling. Very nice, reliable, easy to work with. I thought they did great work for a fair price and plan on hiring them for future projects! attached are some photos

I needed to have some work done in the house. Raul the general contractor from Ram Renovation was referred to us by one of our neighbors who just completed a kitchen remodel with them. Needing some work done in the house, we decided to give them a call since their kitchen came out really nice! We received previous estimates from 4 other contractors and Raul was the last to meet with us. After meeting with the other contractors we weren't looking to change the layout of the kitchen, until we met with him! Raul opened our eyes and gave us ideas that no one else bothered to show. For the second meeting, he came and showed us a 3D design of the new kitchen layout. We opened a wall and made use of every space possible. Our new kitchen remodel is amazing, it totally changed the look of the house and now everything flows well together. We really enjoyed working with Raul, he has a great team and their work speaks for itself. I love it and I think it makes the house so much more beautiful!

We worked with Gracie and Marek on kitchen backsplash and bathroom floor and shower stone work. The job was completed on time, on budget, and to our expectations. Both were very professional and great to work with. Marek arrived exactly when he said he would and kept the work area organized. I would definitely use them for future work.

We hired Mark to tear out vinyl tile from our 2 bathroom floors and replace it with ceramic. The price he quoted us was the price we paid and his work was fantastic. We had both our bathrooms finished in only 3 days total. Couldn't be any happier!

Robert completed my kitchen backsplash and as you can see from the pic posted he did an amazing job! Metal tile is a huge pain but Robert did a spectacular job as you can see. Robert was a pleasure and professional to work with as you will see if you are lucky to hire him. As the other reviewers mentioned his attention to detail was ridiculous no interjection to detail was needed by me as he was very meticulous and prideful in his work. Not sure what else there is to say... Thank you again Robert!!

Tom and his staff was absolutely amazing! He replaced 90% of my deck and painted it. He provided a creative solution for replacing the gazebo's roof. He was on schedule with completing the project, there were no surprise expenses, and his price fit my budget. I am planning to hire him to replace my kitchen floor. If you are looking for an honest and dedicated company, hire Tom from Impact MTC!

We used Andronic Construction for a marble tile backsplash installation and a complete redo of our bathroom shower including demo and reinstall of all the underlying materials including walls and concrete. From the very beginning, the communication, responsiveness, and transparency was above and beyond anyone else we’ve worked with. The work itself way exceeded our expectations. Our backsplash and shower are a work of art! They achieved perfect angles, clean lines, and exact precision which takes not only a high level of skill, but also a meticulous attention to detail. Brian and Jose are extremely trustworthy and punctual. We were given a stepwise schedule of what they would be doing each day so we knew how the job was coming along. For any materials we needed to buy, Brian provided detailed itemized lists to make it easy. They kept the work area clean and protected the rest of our home/floors very well. The price was very fair and at the end we received a spreadsheet of costs as well as itemized receipts. They were respectful, kind, and truly a pleasure to work with. We trust them for any construction/remodeling work and highly recommend them to friends and family. We hope to use their skill again in the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to tile a shower?

The cost of tiling a shower depends on two main factors: the size of the shower and the quality of the tiles. In general, most professional tilers charge an average of $25 per square foot of tiled area and the national average cost for a tile installation project is $490-$750. The tiles themselves are the greatest variable; the cost depends on their size, shape, pattern and manufacturer. For example, tile purchased at a volume discount from a big-box store cost far less than tiles made in small batches by an artisan ceramics shop. Prices can range from as little as $1 to $50 or more per square foot of tile. Other factors that will drive up the total tile installation cost are grout and mortar, speciality tiles like bullnose caps or soap holders, and surface prep materials, especially if drywall needs to be replaced before the tile can be installed. Many tile installers will also remove and haul away any old materials from an existing shower installation.  

How much does it cost to tile a bathroom?

Tile installation costs are a key part of your bathroom remodel costs. The tile you select (which can range from under $2 per square foot to $50 per square foot or more), the demolition and repair work required prior to installation, and the size of the job will all affect cost. You can install tile in the shower, on the counters, on the wall or on the floor. The national average for tile installation cost ranges between $490 and $750. Bathroom tile is easy to clean and durable for daily life. Here are some examples of average bathroom tile installation costs:

  • Tile installation at $25 per square foot of tiled bathroom area.
    • A standard tub and shower combo requires tiles for approximately 60 inches of length. Calculate wall height and add 30 to 36 inches of tub width for the walls at the head and foot of the tub. If the tile walls are 6 feet to 8 feet high, in this example, the tile installation costs would run about $2,000. Price includes materials.
  • Tile installation on a 3-foot by 5-foot regular tub and shower walls with an 8-foot ceiling: $1,450. Price includes materials.
  • Tile installation on a 3-foot by 5-foot regular tub and shower walls with a 10-foot ceiling: $1,650. Price includes materials.

How much does it cost to install a ceramic tile floor?

Tile installation costs for ceramic floors depend on the type of tile you select. You can purchase tile that sells for under $2 per square foot or tile that costs $50 per square foot — or more for artisanal and hand-painted tiles. The cost of labor to install a tile floor will also depend on the tile you select. It is far less labor-intensive to install a white 12-inch by 12-inch square tile than a 2-inch by 2-inch hexagonal tile with a distinct pattern. That extra time and energy equates to a higher per-square-foot installation cost. For example, a flooring pro may charge approximately $3.50 per square foot for labor to install wood-look tile in an area ranging between 6 feet by 24 feet and 8 feet by 48 feet. That same pro may charge $6 or more per square foot for a more intricate pattern, or a smaller space. Some installers may charge a minimum day rate for ceramic tile floor installation, such as $340 minimum per day, to cover business expenses and employee wages. If you’re looking to reduce costs, removing your existing flooring and handling any repairs needed can help eliminate prep work costs. Prep work may be charged per hour and could cost anywhere from $25 to $80 per hour or more, depending on the region and the type of repair work necessary.

How much does it cost to get tiling done?

You can install tiling on your floors, walls, counters, kitchen backsplash, outdoor patio and shower — to name a few places. Tile is beautiful, easy to clean, durable, and resilient against kids and pets. The national average for tile installation cost ranges between $490 and $750. Often, tile installation specialists quote a price per square foot for installation. Costs can increase if you want the pro to supply the tile instead of ordering it yourself. Other factors that can increase cost include specialized installation with a unique design that will require more labor to install.

Prep work will also affect tile installation costs. Demolition of the existing floor, counter or backsplash takes time and energy that will be reflected in the price. Necessary repairs, such as a sub-floor that needs bolstering before tile flooring can be installed, will also increase costs. For tile showers, one example of tile installation cost may be approximately $25 per square foot including all materials and labor. Average tile installation costs for backsplashes may run anywhere from $10 to $40, depending on the materials selected and the amount of labor required. The larger the area where tile is being installed, the lower the price per square foot will likely be. For example, a flooring pro may charge approximately $3.50 per square foot for wood-look tile installation in an area ranging between 6 feet by 24 feet and 8 feet by 48 feet.

How much does it cost to install tiles in a kitchen?

One of the most common kitchen upgrades is installing decorative backsplash tiles in the space between the counters and cabinets. It’s a chance for homeowners to get creative while also protecting the kitchen walls from splashes and stains. Like all tiling projects, kitchen tile project costs depend on the tiles you choose, installation materials such as grout and mortar, and any surface materials, like replacement backer board. The national average for a tiled kitchen backsplash is $490-$750. In general, pricing averages $10-$40 per square foot for installation, not including tile. Some professional tile installers have a minimum day rate for small projects, which averages $350.
