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. 

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.

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.

How do professionals clean tile and grout?

If you need tile and grout cleaning and don’t have the time or mobility for scrubbing your entire house on your hands and knees, it’s time to turn to the pros. Tile and grout cleaning professionals have industrial-grade machines designed for the sole task of cleaning the porous materials of grout and tile.

Typically, a cleaning pro will come out to assess the job and provide you with a quote. Often they charge per square foot (for example, 75 cents per square foot), with higher prices or an hourly rate for areas that will need hand cleaning. The national average cost for tile and grout cleaning ranges from $190 to $250.

Once onsite, the pros thoroughly clean the area by wiping or sweeping down and then vacuuming up any dry dirt. Next a chemical tile cleaner is sprayed over the surface, causing dirt to loosen and adhere to the spray; the industry term for this is “suspension.” The pros then clean the floor with professional-strength machines, which often use a combination of steam, brushes and vacuum to loosen, agitate and lift entrenched dirt. Your floor is then rinsed, removing all the spray.

Usually a small room can be cleaned in under an hour. Applying a sealant afterward is recommend and will also affect cost.

Which is better: porcelain or ceramic tile?

Porcelain tiles are more durable and have a longer lifespan than ceramic tile. If you're installing flooring in an area with high traffic or lots of heavy furniture, porcelain tiles will look better for longer. They’re also very easy to clean and maintain. Porcelain is also very water-resistant and can hold up in places like bathrooms and rooms with jacuzzis, hot tubs, or swimming pools. 

But if the cost is your top priority, ceramic tiles are often more affordable. Ceramic tile prices start as low as $0.45 or $0.50 per square foot, and porcelain tile starts at $3 per square foot.

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.

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
Reviews for Upper Manhattan tiling professionals

They re-tiled a shower wall that desperately needed it. There was an issue with sourcing the tiles by our set appointment time, And they were extremely flexible in working with when the tiles would arrive. I will hire them again when we redo that same bathroom’s floor.

Tiling of newly renovated bathroom in UWS, NYC. Edwin did a great job and was very detailed about each step. He carefully followed CAD drawings we gave him and even discussed improvements to the drawings that were helpful. The bathroom tile job had 12" x 24" porcelain tile, glass accents, 12" by 12" porcelain floor and 1" by 1" ceiling tile, and he laid out all expertly and with care. Highly recommended Affordable Precision Tile and Flooring.

Left everything filthy. Gouged several tiles with grinder. Grout was put on too thick and there was a lot of excess on the tile surface. Spent hours cleaning up after they left.

Everyone at Affordable Precision Tile was extremely responsive, which was a great benefit during planning. Their prices were very fair and the work was high quality. The subway tile backsplash they installed in our kitchen turned out great. They tackled the problem area (an area with strange angles which required a lot of tile cutting) better than expected. We plan to use Affordable Precision Tile and Flooring again for other jobs we need.

Edwin and Elysha were a great team to work with. Edwin installed a ceramic tile backsplash in my kitchen. I received an estimate via Thumbtack within 1-2 hours. Edwin came out to my house to provide an onsite estimate on a SUNDAY. He helped negotiate some difficulties with the tile store. The work was done on time and the quality of the work was amazing. I will definitely use Affordable Precision Tile and Flooring for future tile work.

Stan was lovely, so kind and communicative! He and his colleague were able to complete the re-tiling of my bathroom floor in one day (including demo, prep, and laying the new tile). Unfortunately, many of the tiles were chipped in the process, which has slightly marred the finished look, but on the whole very happy.

Luis tiled my kitchen backsplash with some nice chevron tiles. He did a great job, and was very pleasant to work with, and responsive on a small issue that came up with the work. Final result looks great!

Walter and his team completed our tile backsplash quickly and professionally. They really paid attention to details and did an excellent job matching the tile pattern at corners. They were on-time and cleaned up well. I highly recommend NV Restorations. I plan to use them again and again.

I hired Tony for a fairly challenging stone tile cleaning and grouting project. He was very professional and efficient: - Provided a quote based on photos of the tiles/shower area so it didn't take multiple appointments to get the job done - Was able to schedule the work immediately - Estimated 4 hours to complete the project onsite but was able to finish faster - Offered a follow-up visit if any additional work was needed once the tile and grout was ready for use I just recommended Tony to my neighbor across the hall for similar work.

Cirino was great to work with, punctual, professional, (usually) nice and most importantly great quality. He tiled an entryway with marble tiles, two bathrooms and kitchen backslash with porcelain tile, engineered wood flooring in living and dining area and rerouted a truly horrific job by another tiler (iguana services) to bring it to life. I give everything a 5 except the wood floor and regrout which are more 4.85 and 4.9, respectively (you know why Cirino 😉). The quality was great and it was a pleasure working with Cirino. Heven is not cheap, but it is clear from the results the price is worth it. Would recommend.

Jay is a very nice man and so is his assistant Al. He is hard working nice, reasonable rates and replies to my messages in a timely manner. The 1st pic on left is my dirty kitch floor tiles and the right side is the tiles after jay cleaned it. The grout is much cleaner and no longer dirty gray color. I'd hire Jay again.

Val did terrific work, did it in the time frame he estimated and for the price he quoted. I will call him for all my tiling needs.

Working with Cirino was a pleasure. I had an issue where I needed just one tile replaced in my shower niche. I called a number of companies but everyone was either outrageously expensive for the scope of work or had ideas that I didn’t like. Cirino worked with me to figure out what would work best to fix the tile. He even found a perfectly matching tile for me (I didn’t have extras). He was efficient and honest and gave me a very fair price. He got everything fixed in a timely fashion. He even went above and beyond and caulked a few other areas in other bathrooms in my apartment to avoid any water leak issues in the future. The work was executed very professionally. I highly recommend him. First two photos are of the broken tile. The third is of the great work to replace it (the flush finish looks better than before!)

I had a century old ceramic tiles in poor condition surrounding a fireplace that needed to be replaced, and I needed help. My google search lead me to Thumbtack, and subsequently to SkylineJR Maintenance. At the completion of the day long work, I could not be more pleased with the end result of the tile replacement project. I was left impressed with the skills of both the Jonathans (yes, 1 Jonathan plus another Jonathan). I’m very thankful for their high quality work, and for being lucky with my selection for the right person for the job.

I am mostly satisfied but after we cleaned the tiles after completion of the job, we noticed cracks and missing grout that needed to be addressed. However, when I sent the photos to Daniel Masonry LLC and requested the team to come back, they were unresponsive.
