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. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a tiler when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a tiler in your area, stay at least 6 feet away from worker(s), don’t shake hands, sanitize all involved surfaces and use digital payment platforms instead of cash or a check. During the consultation, put a plan together to help ensure everyone's safety.

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.

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.

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’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?

Ceramic and porcelain are some of the more popular types of tile, but there are a few differences: 

Porcelain Tile

Ceramic Tile

More durable, have a longer lifespan

Cheaper, easier to install

Better for high-traffic areas

Recommended for interior floors, walls

Slightly more water-resistant

Softer, easier to cut

What is the best tile?

There are many different types of tile to choose from, and they all have unique benefits when it comes to aesthetics, longevity, durability and safety.

Porcelain and ceramic tile are often popular in kitchens and bathrooms because they are water-resistant, making them a go-to choice for floors and backsplashes. Marble tile is also a great choice for kitchen and bathroom floors, and granite tiles are popular for countertops. 

Consult with a tile installation professional to figure out what type of tile you should install in your home.

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.

First class professional. Had to remove 24 years old ceramic tiles and dry wall and installed new ceramic tiles and dry wall. The whole thing went very smoothly due to Jacob’s art work style and great work organization process. Reasonably priced and very punctual. They kept cleaning the work area all the way through. Master tile installer.

I am very thankful for the tile work that E&M provided. He worked efficiently and did a great job. I would definitely hire this company again. E&M went above and beyond to work with my uneven walls and created something nice. E&M put up the white tiles in the photo and installed the shower door. Thanks!

Going on the second day of the job and we are very impressed. So far he's done an excellent job and does very impressive work on our flooring tile. He's diligently tiled two rooms with Percision work and Is ahead of schedule to finish the last room tomorrow. We would highly recommend his service to everyone. He's also the most responsible on his quotes.🤗

We contacted MK Stone Design to tile our shower and bathroom floor. Silvio came out the same day that we got in contact and they started within a week. Silvio's work is beautiful and we're incredibly happy with the result.

Malcolm really knows his business and is a true professional. He laid out a clear estimate and plan. He was punctual and his crew did great work and did a beautiful job installing new sub floor and the kitchen tile in one long day. It was a pleasure to deal with a contractor who paid such attention to detail and respected the customer too!

I initially tried several local contractors with little or no response. This company is based in Toledo Ohio but works frequently in the Ann Arbor area. Based on reviews from other contractors, the tile I selected for my backsplash isn’t the easiest to work with but Midwest Mosaic was up for the challenge. Despite the distance they arrived promptly on site at 9am each morning to start the work. Robert was my installer. I have a large kitchen and was amazed at how quickly he was able to get the work done without sacrificing quality. Robert was very prompt, professional and a perfectionist. I appreciate his hard work and attention to detail. The owner, Malcolm gave me great feedback on my design choices, prior to work starting on my project, and followed up on-site, after the job was complete to ensure I was satisfied. I was happy with the service and work. I highly recommend this company, they are great at what they do!
