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. 

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a tiler when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a tiler in your area, stay at least 6 feet away from worker(s), don’t shake hands, sanitize all involved surfaces and use digital payment platforms instead of cash or a check. During the consultation, put a plan together to help ensure everyone's safety.

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 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.

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.

After Installation the tiles were not level, I had to tell them. Cost me 100s of dollars in ceiling repair and paint after the toilet they installed as part of the tile project kept leaking as they didn’t bother to install new rings. The entire work was rushed and I am extremely disappointed. Their price was low but now I believe what it means” you get what you pay for”.

Nathan was awesome and a did a great job. He answered all my questions and even asked me things about the project that I didn't even think to ask. He made recommendations based on the project. The quality of his work speaks for itself. Will definitely use him again for any of our tiling needs.

Great tile work and would definitely recommend. Tom came in slightly higher than other quotes but after seeing him work, I can see why. Not only was the tile work great, he went above and beyond to make it easy. He moved appliances, trimmed down the bottom of 3 doors and the folding pantry doors (so that they don’t rub the floor when opening and closing), and even went out of his way to apply silicon to the mid room sink pipe because he noticed a small leak when things were moved around! He was also punctual and didn’t charge me extra for the materials he had to purchase at Home Depot (he gave me receipt). Hire Tom, you won’t be disappointed.

Nur is very professional and pays attention to detail, this is a marble mosaic installation and it was done with perfection. Very neat and clean work, every single tile is placed and grouted securely. ProTime Inc. is highly reputed, knowledgeable and skilled for their craftsmanship, I highly recommend for all remodeling work, it was a pleasure working with them and will continue to work with them on other remodeling projects.

Salvo (owner) does quality work for a good price. There was a little miscommunication at the beginning where he didn’t bring the tools he needed for glass tile the first time he came, but he made up for it by coming on New Years Eve. I was short a box of tile so he sent his guys to come back and finish another day. They completed the job and it was mostly good but a couple of corners may have been a little rushed. Not too bad but noticeable to me as the homeowner (don’t think guests would notice). The guys he sent for that 2nd job were VERY loud, shouting and even FaceTimed a friend while on the job which I thought was unprofessional. Overall good work, but if I hire again I’ll ask for Salvo to do himself next time.

I found ISA to be one of those rare businesses where you actually receive what you pay for. Their jobs were to tile two bath rooms and a family room, hang 10 interior doors, install extensive back splash and replace two bathroom vanities. One rare quality we found with ISA is their punctuality. A customer will find appointments kept and punctuality maintained ... a trait definitely not belonging to a good number of contractors today. We found Salvo and Kemmel (spelling) personal and friendly to be with during the arduous turmoil of home remodeling. Perhaps the best accolade a customer can provide to any business is "yes, I would hire them again"!
