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.

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.  

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

JEC Construction is a very skilled and professional company. They worked with us on our design and with the materials we had purchased. Even when we had some issues due to a a bad plumber that we hired, JEC Construction was patient and ensured the job was completed within the original time frame. We are very happy with the drywall work, new sub floor, tile in shower, tile on floor, marble threshold, medicine cabinet installation, and sink vanity installation. I would recommend this company to anyone needing tile work for a bathroom or kitchen.

Jacob tiled ~230 sqft of bar/bathroom area in our basement. The job was very challenging (old house - concrete out of level, bumpy, not square...). Jacob did a great job leveling and laying brick-look tile in a herringbone pattern for a reasonable price. Outstanding customer service...called back promptly, showed up on time, cleaned up job-site. I would recommend Jacob!

Jacob was absolutely amazing in replacing several cracked 12x24 floor tiles in my mud room. He came with his team, they could not be nicer, they did not waste a second and left the area cleaner than even I had it before they came! Also, the tile job was beautifully done. I cannot wait to have him work on other projects around my properties in the future! Thanks for all of your hard work, Jacob!

I am very happy that I worked with Footprints Floors for my full bathroom floor tile and shower tile installation. The crew set clear expectations up front, communicated at a high level throughout the project (both proactively and in response to me, sometimes as late as 9 pm), and completed the job in the timeframe that they said they would. Adnan and Jimmy were my main points of contact, great guys to work with and I would most certainly work with them again.

Josh did a great job tiling around our glad block window in our shower area. When the glass black window installers pretty much left us with an unfinished window josh was there to save our day. He did a very professional job and the whole experience went smooth and the price was great. We will use him again in the future. I highly recommend Josh.

Would give 6 stars if possible! Jacob responded to my inquiry and gave me an estimate based on a photo promptly. I needed backsplash installed in my kitchen, so a relatively small job, and he was able to come out the very next day. He was very courteous and meticulous - it turned out the wall was uneven, but he was easily able to adjust and make the finish look flawless! His expertise was much appreciated. Will recommend him to anyone needing tile work!
