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.

Alvin’s Team was very responsive to our bathroom remodel job. They were punctual on everything from our initial meeting until project completion on day 7. They took the necessary time to ensure every task was completed with extreme care and quality built to last. A few in process changes were accommodated without hesitation and with support to bring others on site to achieve desired outcomes in a timely manner. The tile setter (Danny) went above and beyond to provide total satisfaction including working over the weekend and on Memorial Day. The project included removal and replacement of all floor and wall tiles, adding several new fixtures and fixed glass shower wall. We are extremely pleased with the personal attention and improvements made by Ashia Tile & Marble in our master bath remodeling.

Me and wife are so pleased with the work done by Mohammad. He was very punctual, professional and project was completed on time. The area was cleaned after work and all the debris was removed. Highly recommend Goubar for all kinds of tile work. I actually asked him to give me an estimate for my bathroom.

We had a slate tiled accent wall done. Unfortunately the slate tiles, which were glued to a mesh backing, had glue that failed. What would have been a normal job turned into a disaster (see pics). Dan and Blake essentially put the wall up one piece at a time. They were awesome though, never complained about the situation and just told us “all that matters is that it’s exactly how you want it and it looks perfect.” You can tell that they are extremely detailed and perfectionist by nature, which is what you need for any type of contracting job. What could have been a terrible installation ended up being a perfect job. We’ll definitely use them again in the future for other jobs.

We met with quite a few companies for our backsplash project but Alvin and his team won us over immediately with their attention to detail, and step by step breakdown of the process and cost. They were amazing to work with and the work was done quickly and the quality was top notch. We would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be using them in the future if we ever need tile work done!!
