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 couldn't be happier with my decision to hire Pbr Tile Installers & Repair for my mosaic marble tile project. Pirro went above and beyond my expectations. He even performed tasks that weren't included in our agreement at no additional cost. The finished product is absolutely beautiful. We are already discussing having Pbr Tile Installers & Repair replace our old kitchen linoleum with porcelain tiles. I highly recommend Pirro without hesitation.

Dino tiled our laundry room including the ugliest concrete step that has ever existed. It was a tough job as the concrete slab in there is pitched toward a central drain, but it looks wonderful. He was available quickly and cleaned up after himself. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fast, reasonably priced, well done tile job!

Did some light drywall work and tiled a tub deck and shower surround for me. Overall outstanding experience. Professional approach, quality work, quick turnaround. Even worked around my terrible schedule. Definitely looking to have them do some more work around my home.

Jay was literally a Godsend to us. After being stood up by 2 other tile installers putting us on a tight time frame Jay moved his schedule around to fit us in. He showed up at the planned time and after consulting with us about our design set to work. His expert attention to detail resulted in a gorgeous finished product, completed in time for our needs and we couldn't be happier! Jay made things right for us when others had let us down and it all worked out for the best! Thanks Jay!

UPDATED: Need to amend this review - there is a noticeable crack in one of our installed tiles that we flagged immediately after the install was finished. We were told by both Mike and Steve that they would take care of it. We were patient and said it didn't need to be immediately addressed and that he could just fit us in sometime in the next week or two. After following up a few times over the last 2 months, we haven't heard back and fear we never will. Unfortunate that it had to end on a sour note. ORIGINAL: Mike was great - flexible and quick to schedule a visit and provide a quote. He was very patient with us and answered our questions. Seemed to know his stuff. He sourced our backsplash job out to two installers, the first of which did not work out well, but Mike was very responsive and provide a fix and make things right. He got us connected with Steve who really knew his stuff. We had to work around his schedule with other jobs and it took some patience, but he ended up doing a fantastic job. He made quick but quality work of our tough project (we had bowed walls and installed glass tiles). We would work with both Mike and Steve again. Thank you!
