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.

Stephen from Coble Kitchen and Bath came to install a tile backsplash in our kitchen, which looks great. We bought inexpensive tile (budget reno), so I'm sure the tiles were not easy to work with, and there were multiple outlets that he had to work around. I also appreciated his advice about grout options (before coming out to the house) and the layout of the tile (once he arrived). It was also nice to be able to leave the house to run errands while he worked in the kitchen all day. Pictures are not the best (taken at night, grout still wet/darker) but they at least show you the good job Stephen did.

Charles did an excellent job with laying tile in my house. I put him in a rush situation, and he came in on a Sunday to get the work completed. He graciously offered to pick up tile, and ran around gathering other essentials. I will be hiring Charles for other work needed in the near future.

Simon was punctual, professional and a true perfectionist and lucky me he was also a great value. He did a lovely tile job but can do anything home improvement.

Stephen arrived on time and worked efficiently. The job took longer than anticipated due to large variations in tile size/shape, but we appreciated Stephen taking his time to get it right. After the install, we got new, smaller outlet covers that exposed some of the wall and Stephen promptly scheduled some time to fix it. We'll definitely give Stephen a call next time we have a tiling/flooring job.

JC showed up on time and proceeded to do a great job on my Travertine tiles which hadn't been cleaned in 10 years! Just recommended him to a good friend who is closing on her house in March.

Alan did a good job on a mud bed installation, was able to come by after work and worked hard to get the job done. However, I tried reaching out to him to see if he wanted to finish tiling my master shower and have not been able to get in touch with him.

We hired Dan to install tile flooring in our kitchen. We are very satisfied with the finished product. He is hard working and a very nice gentleman. We would recommend him to help anyone with projects they would like to get done. His price was very reasonable for all the hard work he had to do.

I had a very busy schedule and he was very accommodating to my schedule. He did everything while I was out while still keeping me in the loop about everything and he did such a great job with my kitchen backsplash tile! Process was very quick and he was available to come on a Saturday night.... that's amazing! Definitely recommend!

This was a very textured ceramic tile floor with a lot of dirt deeply imbedded and virtually impossible to clean. These folks made the floor look brand new. They showed up exactly at the specified time, took care to protect the entryway to our home and did all this at the best price available. I would certainly recommend JCM and will use them again.
