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.

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.

Andrei did a awesome job installing the kitchen backsplash. We wanted a 3x12 subway tiles with herringbone pattern but he stopped by advised us that with a curve in the wall it might not turn out good and did a perfect job with 3x6 tiles. He was very professional, on time and cleaned up the place after the job is done.

Nathan gave a clear explanation of his plan to tackle my tile project. His estimate was fair. Since the job was fairly small and Nathan was swamped with other work I ultimately chose to handle the project myself but Nathan appeared knowledgeable and more than capable. I would definitely consider contacting him in the future for any tiling work.

The job was to replace 3 tiles at my diahwaaher ,Danielle quoted 500$ Forthe job. When i asked him for how he came up.with the number he responds with this answer that i have attached . He is unprofessionla in his demenour and his business practices are questionable . This is Danelles response I know it is not a lot of work, but it is going to end up being a whole day for my tile guy. I could have him working on another job where he makes the company that much money or more

Euro Pro did a fantastic job. We had old, prefab shower removed and replaced with tile. Total job took just 2.5 days and we couldn’t be happier with end result. Salvatore had had clear ideas and suggestions on how to handle certain details and executed perfectly!

This was by far the best renovation experience we have ever had! From estimate to scheduling everything was smooth. The tile install is amazing and the room was left immaculate. I can not say enough positive about working with Andrei. I will contact him first if I need any additional work and have a few business cards for my friends looking for quality work.

Euro Pro removed existing tile kitchen backsplash and installed thin brick. The job was rushed at the end of the day. The brick extended too far past the counter, and we had to bring in another contractor to repair it. They did not finish cleaning the brick or the workspace, and we had dust everywhere for a few days. They did not cover anything before the work started, so the grout dust was in our kitchen appliances, cups, glasses, etc.

Avdix did a great job on our laundry room floor tile project. From the time we posted the job they were the most responsive. I bought the materials myself and actually bought the wrong bag of mortar, Samir told me not to worry about it and picked up the bag for me. The other great thing was the cleanliness, our laundry room is on the 2nd floor and you couldn’t tell there was even a contractor in the house. I would highly recommend Avdix for anyone looking for a quality professional drywall job.

Danny was GREAT! He did our main floor bathroom from top to bottom and we absolutely love it! Danny spent time ensuring every piece was done properly and is definitely a perfectionist. From the tile work in the shower and on the floors, installing a new toilet, vanity, lighting, drywall, trim and painting (I am sure I am missing way more things that he did)- everything was done exactly how we wanted. We absolutely recommend Danny and we will be using him in the future!

I contacted ProQual to change the tiles on my fireplace. First of all, out of the six quotes I received, they were the most reasonable, and honestly, the most fair price for the job. Their team arrived on time, were extremely transparent with their process and knocked off the work in half a day (when others said it would take 3 and 5 days respectively). After the job was complete, they cleaned the area, set everything in place, vacuumed swept and wiped the floor. I highly recommend you to use their service. You wont regret it!
