Things to know before you get started.
5 Steps to Hiring a Tile Installer
  1. 1. Rely on experience

    Given the symmetrical arrangement of tiles, even minor errors such as broken, discolored or misaligned tiles make for an unsightly surface. Leave the project to professionals who have experience.

  2. 2. Choose the best tile

    Determine the kind of work that you want done. When having broken tiles replaced, it is a good idea to find an exact replacement for it or you end up with an eyesore if you have mismatched tiles.

  3. 3. Vet a few pros

    Give a few tile installers a call and discuss your project with them. Ensure that the contractor is licensed and insured. If possible, ask the contractors if they can show you some past tiling work.

  4. 4. Ask about demolition

    If your installer pro recommends replacement, be sure to inquire about the cost of the demolition work needed. Some installers may include this in their bids, but others may charge extra.

  5. 5. Take care of fine print

    Once you have chosen at least one tile installer to your liking, discuss rates. Ask about guarantees and warranties for their services and if they also do regular maintenance and repair.
