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.

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.  

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.

Reviews for New Orleans tiling professionals

DeVante was such a pleasure to work with. He tiled our walk-in shower over the course of 5 days. Very punctual, diligent, and friendly. Would work with him again!

My experience from start to finish was absolutely phenomenal. I have been trying to find someone to replace broken slate tiles on the floor of my shower for a good three months now. I was having trouble finding anyone to consistently communicate with me about the job so I just stopped using the shower. I’ve had good luck on thumbtack and I find the reviews to be very accurate so I did a search and found flooring labor. I reached out guarding the possibility of either replacing the broken tiles or doing a bigger re-tile job. I was contacted within a few hours and had a free estimate the same day which happened to be a weekend which was very helpful since it’s hard to find time during the week. I was given an estimate for a repair as well as a whole re-tile which I requested both. There was no pushing us in the process and I felt that the estimate was very thorough. Received the Estimate the next day as promised. The price was very good for demolition and re-tiling and given that I was having issues with sleep in the shower in general and grout constantly falling out I opted for the longer-term solution. I purchased the materials after being given information on how much square footage to purchase for and was able to schedule the job for the following week. Well I hate any type of tile demolition this one was done as carefully as possible to minimize all of the dust. I was kept very involved in the process if there were questions about plumbing or decisions on the actual tile placement. The work was meticulous and they protected my floors as they came in and out of the house. From start to finish the project took five days and they worked very diligently each day. The finished product was a beautifully upgraded shower. The first time I have confidence that my shower will not be leaking through my ceiling as they insured that the waterproofing work was 100% sound.

Corvus did an amazing job deep cleaning the ceramic tile and grout throughout my entiree home. The grout has been restored to its original white and the the entire floor shines likes it’s brand new. They even took the time to move my kitchen appliances to clean, buff and polish the tile under them. Jason provided a preliminary estimate based on the measurements I gave him and after he double checked my measurements, actually lowered his price because I had over estimated the total square footage. Overall I am extremely satisfied and have already scheduled Corvus to do several projects at my rental property.

Morgan did great work in the bathroom re-tiling our floor, installing new shower doors and refinishing the molding in our space. His quality is excellent. My only complaint or advice is to nail down the timeline and completion date with him. Our project took a quite a bit longer than we wanted. Having said that we are certainly very pleased with the finished product.
