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 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.

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.  

Reviews for Kansas City tiling professionals

Fred did a great job replacing tile in a tub surround. He responded to my request quickly and did a professional job. He removed old tile and wet wall board and replaced insulation. He did a beautiful job tiling. He also coordinated with the plumber to make sure the new fixtures were installed on time.

AJ and his brother Jemere arrived on time every day, and even started the project early so it would be done for my 50th Birthday party. It was a tough tile job in a 110 year old stone shirtwaist home, and my kitchen had 3 fridges to move and tile under. These guys have reasonable prices and get the job done!

Roy was great to work with and our floor looks nice. He always showed up when he said he was going to and he put down nearly 800 sq feet of tile. The only thing I wish we would have done is we might have needed to pay a little more to have him put down a layer of self leveling underlayment to help keep the tiles all even to each other ... but they look great.

For anyone who needs tile work or other odd jobs, I will happily tell you to use Venpro painting. Louis and Oscar are the very best at the job they have to do. They are very professional, on time, easy to work with and explain everything that needs to be done. I have more work in need of repairs or replacement. Louis and Oscar will be the very first company I will call. Their work is impeccable. And they’re very good at all the jobs that I needed done. I would like to thank Louis and Oscar for the perfect tile job in my bathroom I really recommend them for just about any job.

I had one wall (~30sf) of plain square tile backsplash to be completed, with a kind of complicated window to cut around. They did it in less than two days for a great price, and were really responsive and easy to work with. Very satisfied, would hire again or recommend to friends.

Fred worked on my house turning a wonky bathroom floor into a beautifully solid statement piece. He styled the facing tub wall with matching tile - giving the room a designer touch. I’m in awe of Fred’s ability to unify disparate room measurements - he does what no handy house owner can!

Fred was very helpful! He happily provided us a quick estimate using pictures, was willing to work with our short timeline, and let us know where to pick out the exact tile we wanted. While we didn’t have the work done in the end, we will gladly work with him again in the future.

My experience with Jay from Top Tier was absolutely wonderful. He was hired to complete a two projects (kitchen subway tile from floor to ceiling and MBR fireplace). He showed up each day on time and thoroughly cleaned before leaving. He asked clarifying questions on layout, grout color, etc. to ensure I was getting exactly what I wanted. He went above and beyond on the fireplace project, working through a weekend, leveling the hearth and even applying trim which was a very pleasant surprise! I've worked with a few other tile experts in the past that were flaky, unprofessional or dragged projects out for months. Jay is by far the best person I've hired. I would hire him again in a heart beat for a future project.

Greg went above and beyond in his efforts to complete my 80 year old parent’s master bathroom tile job. It started out simple, but my parents decided to up the complexity at the last minute. Greg remained professional and kind, and delivered a beautiful end product. We highly recommend him for any project!

Hector and his brother Caesar did an amazing job on our kitchen tile. I reached out to Hector months before I was ready to install because I was getting quotes. We for sure got our monies worth, it's not always about the price but about the professionalism and quilty of the job. We will for sure have them back when we decide to work on our bathrooms.

We needed our bathroom re-tiled and are very glad we worked with Geoff. His accurate communication, professionalism and outstanding results made it a pleasure to work with Geoff on our project. From the first initial contact for an onsite bid to the start of the project, Geoff clearly stated the steps involved, gave a proposed timeline and then exceeded or met that timeline at every part of the project. Additionally, Geoff's knowledge, attention to detail, work ethic and professionalism prove he is a true craftsman. I will definitely seek to work with Geoff on future projects.

Hector and his brother were amazing. Hector was super polite and answered all of my (and our 4 yr. old's) questions. I can't believe all of the work he did for the price he charged. He should definitely raise his prices because his quality and level of service is worth it. I really appreciate how clean he left our home and the care he took to make sure he didn't drag any snow or dirt in. He even wanted to cut tile somewhere where my son wouldn't walk barefoot. He was totally amazing. We will definitely hire him for any project we have in the future. I'm pretty hard to impress but he was amazing.

We're doing some kitchen remodeling and needed to have our old back splash removed and new one installed. I purchased the material from NFM, but their installers were going to take 4-6 weeks before they could start after the material came in. This was going to create delays in other parts of the project so I came to Thumbtack looking for someone who could get the job done quickly. Hector from New Finish gave me an estimate on here, came by to look everything over to confirm the price, and I scheduled the job. They started and finished on time and were very professional. They took care of their work area, cleaned up each day when they were done, and did a very nice job. I will absolutely hire him again when I need tile work and don't hesitate to recommend him.
