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.

I had kitchen tile work done by MSF Landscapes, Masonry, Excavation and Commercial Snow Removal, Inc. The experience was truly positive from getting a quote to having the work done. We are so happy with this company that we will probably hire them back for bathroom tile work.

Excellent job by Andre and his team. We had ~1100 sq ft of wood look porcelain tile installed. AJC took up the existing flooring (50 yr old Terracotta tile) and laid down the new flooring and sub floor. Andre and his crew are very professional and were great to work with.

Peter is truly exceptional at everything he does, and I really couldn't be happier with the work. I brought him into a framed and boarded remodeled bathroom that I wasn't sure had been done correctly. He was able to fix issues like bowed studs and a poorly pitched shower floor, things that many others (including my previous contractors) might have ignored. He understood what I wanted in terms of design, and the tiling work is just beautiful, even, and flat- no small feat in my very old house! But beyond that, because he explained things to me as we went along and was happy to work with me on things, I know that what's under the tile was done just as well. You almost can't put a price on that kind of peace of mind, but Peter's was definitely reasonable and well worth it.

We really can't rave enough about Bob and his crew. We initially made contact because we needed bathroom floors replaced (tile). Then after looking at his photos, we had them install vinyl flooring outside of the bathroom. Then we had them re-stretch our carpet. THEN after looking at MORE photos, we seen they do backsplashes and said, what the heck have them do that too. And let me tell you, in one day everything was completed. They didn't stop to eat and worked HARD, REAL HARD!! We had a 2 year old present while they worked and they were amazing with her. They were so polite and have a funny heavy accent lol. I promise you, these guys are beyond worth it. We are beyond satisfied, thank you guys. The quality of the work was top notch. TOP NOTCH!!
