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. 

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.

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.

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. 

Does tile flooring increase home value?

Having a tile floor may increase your home’s value, but it might depend on the type of tile you install and the trends in the real estate market.

Chat with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out what types of home repairs and remodeling projects you should tackle before you put your home on the market. It might make sense to add new tiles when renovating your kitchen or bathroom, for example. 

If you decide to include new tiling in your home remodeling project, contact the best tile installation pros near you to get free estimates.

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.

How can I get my grout clean?

Dirt, mildew and grime can make your grout lines look downright tragic. If you have the ability, DIY tile and grout cleaning is definitely doable. Your main obstacles are time, project size, availability of the right materials and effort. Your first step in tile and grout cleaning is making sure the surface area is cleaned of basic dirt and buildup and wiped down. Be sure not to use a bleach-based cleaning agent, which could react dangerously with the vinegar used in later steps.

Depending on the delicacy of your tile and grout, it may be wise to start with water and friction before proceeding to a cleaning solution. In the shower you can spray the area while brushing gently, or use a spray bottle filled with warm water on countertops or floors. If water won’t do the trick, try a solution of equal parts warm water and white vinegar, and repeat the gentle brushing motion. This combination should begin to lift dirt and grime from the grout. For additional tile and grout cleaning power, baking soda applied directly to grout lines and sprayed with your water vinegar solution can help suds off sticky grime. If your DIY cleaning solutions aren’t doing the trick, store-bought sprays and pastes may have more cleansing power. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning and enjoy your sparkling clean grout.

Tile and grout cleaning supplies include:

  • Old standard or electric toothbrush
  • Stiff bristle brush
  • Spray bottle
  • White vinegar
  • Commercial grout cleaner

Andy was extremely responsive and professional. We moved in to a new house and fireplace tile didn’t fit with our design plans. Andy got rid of the old tile and installed the new tile. Beautiful work and great to work with! Highly recommend. You can see the before- black/gray tiles and after! Huge difference

Dave responded quickly with a quote to tile our kitchen backsplash and we were able to start within several weeks of accepting his quote. We had a lot of issues with our wall that Dave repaired before tiling could begin. Our tile had irregular edges making it trickier to work with, but Dave did a beautiful job lining everything up and we couldn't be happier with the end result. We plan on having him back to tile our tub surround as well.

Was looking for someone to fix the shower floor slope because the water never drained correctly. When Gerrit came out from McCarty Tile & Stone, I asked him if he could just tile over the existing tile to fix the slope. He said it would not be an issue. He explained what would need to be done, asked about tile and quoted a fair price. There was no pressure from him to do any unnecessarily work. It was a two day project and he started that day. After each day he cleaned up and no mess was left behind. I believe he enjoys what he does and it shows in his work. I now have a tile guy.

Did fast work to redo a portion of our backsplash. Required taking down tiles, putting up new ones and cutting tiles in a straight line. A little on the pricier side but job estimate didn't require as much time as was initially quoted.

Thiago was extremely professional and responsive throughout our entire project. He helped us in picking out a tile and grout that turned out beautiful. Him and his crew did a great job installing the tile, paying attention to detail along the entire way. When finished he ensured I was happy with the work. He also completed the job a day ahead of schedule! I’ll be using him again on future tile work.

Working with Tec Tile was our best thumbtack experience. They were very communicative with fast responses. I had some inspiration images of what I was trying to achieve and they worked with me to get exactly what I wanted. They created a backsplash that looks like a marble slab out of 18x18 tiles that I had purchased by making their install look seamless as possible. I’m keeping g their info on file for friend and family who need tile work in the future!

Modern Tile Installation did an amazing job on our kitchen backsplash. They were very responsive, affordable, detailed and professional. The job was complete quickly and they were respectful of our home and cleaned up was thorough. We needed to have the drywall replaced which they were happy to do as well as the tile installation. They made sure we were happy with the outcome and made payment very easy. I was very happy with how they treated our tiles, which were not easy to work with, and so pleased with the finished product!

Silvino is a genius at his craft of setting tile. He tiled our entryway, and fireplace wall. His attention to detail cannot be beat. Silvino was polite and professional. I would not hesitate to hire him again. A shout out to his wife for all of her hard work too. Thank you both.

Aaron did an AMAZING job. We had small arabesque tile for our backsplash that I couldn’t imagine cutting, and he cut and laid it perfectly. We originally had agreed that Aaron would do our tile floor the standard way with backer board, but when we pulled the tile up and he saw that our floor was uneven, he helped explain how another approach would be best. He also ran into some issues with the tile we selected (had nothing to do with him) and the options for patterns it allowed, and managed to find a solution that we were happy with. Aaron is very talented and was great to communicate with and have explain the entire process to us. He was amazing and we would highly recommend him!
