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.

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 install backsplash?

The time it takes to install backsplash depends on the size of the area and the type of materials you’re using. But generally, it’ll take a few days to finish the project. Porcelain or ceramic tile may take less time than that, while very small glass tiles or complicated designs are likely to add time. 

Chat with the best tile specialists to find out how long it will take to install a backsplash in your home.

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.

I have a small bathroom with 1" tile floor and 3" tile walls and the grout was grimey and discolored. After he was done, the tile and grout look amazing, and makes the bathroom like brand new again. Would definitely recommend for value, responsiveness, and quality of the work.

TB Tiles LLC demoed and installed tiles in my bathroom and foyer floors. Tod and his team were communicative, timely, and fairly priced. He provided a contract and description of the work to be done and was accurate in completing the job. There were no surprises. I will be using them again for future tile work!

TB Tiles installed a tile pattern on the wall of our kitchen bar and concurrently installed a mosaic pattern with a border on the floor of our powder room. Both projects turned out fantastic. Tod from TB was extremely professional and accommodating as my wife was expecting our first child and actually admitted to the hospital for labor mid-project. TB completed the work in our absence and my wife and I returned home to a job well done. I would absolutely recommend TB Tiles to a friend if they were considering a tile project.

Jose did a great job on the tile for my bathroom floor and shower enclosure. His communication was great and his recommendations for some on the fly changes made the project a success. I would 100% recommend Tech Tile Inc.

Made a mistake hiring these people. I've hired them to do the tiles in my bathroom. They don't have any clue about how to put the tiles . They act like they do but don't be fooled. I've trusted them.All talk and no clue . Most tiles are crooked with no straight lines and all the crooked places they filled with lot of grout. Some places big bumps. They put the tiles where ever they could find a place instead of straight lines. Completely ruined . Now I have to spend more money and hire somebody else to redo the tiles. I found may be 5% Good skilled people from thumbtack. Many of them are bad and crooked and lie with no idea. So if anybody hiring from here, be very careful.
