Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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

How much does it cost to clean tile and grout?

The national average cost for tile and grout cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Pros may charge a flat fee or by the square foot. Rates can vary depending on the type of tile and grout you have (more delicate tiles may mean specialized products or careful handwashing), how dirty your tile and grout are, and what part of the country you are in (regional labor rates and costs to do business affect costs). For example, one floor cleaning company charges 75 cents per square foot for tile and grout cleaning for projects that permit cleaning by machine. Another company may charge $30-$50 per hour for hand-cleaning of tiles. Companies often charge a minimum fee for services to ensure their business expenses are met when they accept a job, no matter how small. In addition, a tile and flooring cleaning professional may charge added fees, such as $25 or more, to move heavy furniture or appliances.

I have hired Claudney to add kitchen backsplash at my home, Claudney did an awesome job completing the project. After researching tile pro for few days i was about to give up the project since quote was so expensive. Luckily Claudney reached to me on the same day I requested on Thumbtack got the quote which was very reasonable to other quote. Claudney was very professional reached on time and completed the work like a pro. I highly recommend CLA New England Tile for the work

We are very satisfied with Aguinaldo's work. He and his team- worker explained everything to us carefully, helped us understand what to purchase and how much, and they even picked up the materials for us. We got help moving furniture, and they didn't mind our peeking to see what they were doing and explaining their process. It was a fun experience getting our kitchen floor tiled with a backsplash behind the stove and having wood flooring installed in our dining room. It is such an improvement! Fine work. Highly recommend J & A Tile and Stone!

Brandon did a great job. The workmanship was wonderful. We had a couple of spots of uneven walls and cabinets that may have been a challenge but Brandon was able to seamlessly lay the tile so you don’t even notice. Great job.

Emerson and his partner tiled a fireplace surround and entry way for us. We are thrilled with their work! Showed photos of the design and look we desired- they took it from there and exceeded our expectations. They were punctual, neat, and professional. Very nice people! We highly recommend Emerson!

Emerson was really professional and got the job done in one day. He traveled to a Home Depot location which was more than 35 miles away and got the exact tile we were looking for as backsplash. He showed up on time finished the project as quoted. Highly recommend to utilize his services.

I couldn't be happier with this experience. I received an online estimate same day and in person quote a few days later. I stressed that I was on a tight schedule and they were able to start the next day. They arrived each day on time, worked cleanly and vocalized any hiccups. Even with the tile being very difficult to take up, I was charged what I was quoted. Highly recommend!

Nate and his brother did a great job retiling the wall behind our bathroom vanity and around our master tub with an intricate and difficult tile. Nate was extremely responsive—he always answered right away when I called or texted, and often proactively reached out to me to ask questions or share updates. He and his brother both took a lot of care in their work and were very nice and respectful. We would definitely hire them again!

My wife was extremely happy with the final outcome. However, she did not have to deal with the day to day. On more than one occasion Lucas said he would be there at a certain time and wasn't. He also said he would call with the time he would be there the next day and didn't. Each time I would have to call or text him. He doesn't answer his phone and very slow to respond to text. I had to point out several flaws in his work that were obvious to me and should have been so to him. When he started the work I asked him to cover the entire,NEW, countertop. His response was that he was going to work on the cardboard that came with the tile packaging. He did do that but it left most of the counter exposed. My fault for not insisting. After he left, the final day, I spent 5 hours scraping and cleaning the countertop to get it back to where it was before he arrived. His price was by far the best but obviously that means you are going to have to do most of the cleanup to complete the job. Overall I was happy with the job he did and I would use him again if his price was the lowest.
