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

If you want a job done fast and are selling your house, he's a good choice. If you want it done right and living with the work, find another. Let's talk details: I had a contractor whom I have used for 15 years and I highly recommend him, he has had serious health issues and had to stop the project mid-way and couldn't do more than a couple of days worth of work a week due to that. We needed someone to finish quickly and found All about Grace. He said his 'expertise' was tiling. Simply put, he lied. 1. Tiled backsplash and didn't clean up residue grout causing us to take a razor blade to scrap off every piece of tile because it wasn't cleaned after applied. 2. hired to tile behind fridge but didn't do it 'because you couldn't see it'. We told him if we were selling the house the new refrigerator would be taken and 1/2 of the wall would be tiled. His response was 'just keep the refrigerator there'. It would have taken him an extra hour to finish the job but caused him to extend the project to do it right. 3. Instead of simply continuing the tile, he cut them straight in the wall and ended up putting half-pieces together...lazy and sloppy work. 4. Instead of angling the Schluter molding at a 90-degree, he rounded them...would be fine if we had rounded tile, but resulted in the inability for the tile to fit snuggly against it and areas of big 'filler' with the grout. 5. Filthy. Cut tile in kitchen. Refrigerator left with grimy mud all over, kitchen wall had spray from the cutter. The entire floor was covered with grime. 6. Cut molding too short in multiple areas, 1/4" gab between wood and where it meets vertical. 7. Installed closet wall and after installing frame I had to call out it was crooked by over an inch from floor to ceiling. If I didn't call it out, I suspect it was going to go in that way. added a bi-fold door to the closet, but he cut the door (which wasn't needed) and he cut one of the doors crooked! The top of the frame is 3/4" wider than the base of the frame...remember, HE built it, but he blamed it on the plaster that his 'workers' put on it. He had to replace the doors. This was a pantry-closet and I told him to add the white wire shelves. He added Heavy duty black brackets and cut plywood for shelves. After asking him why he did that, he said they were 'stronger' and can hold several hundred pounds. (a) they are ugly for a pantry (b) they could not be painted 8. Communication is an issue with him. We wanted bead molding on walls and we discussed what style. He recommended and we agreed to they simple style and size. 2 days later he said he was delayed because I couldn't make up my mind. I told him we had already decided and I ended up buying the molding (which was included in his estimate originally) and then he asked me to stain it!. After he put up, his miter cuts to put them together were ridiculously sloppy. 9. He replaced 8 outlets and 2 switches. 2 outlets didn't work and I had to rewire them and 1 of the switches were upside down. 10. didn't cut tile around one of the GFI outlets correctly which prevented the GFI to actually go in. We had to chip away at the tile to get the GFI beyond the backsplash. 11. He never told me he was subcontracting work to painters. The painters were excellent, but they were going to paint around mirror and light without taking them down. I asked them to take the fixtures down before painting and their 'boss' wanted to charge me for that. He wanted to upcharge on teh paint and claimed it was 12. Told him in the original estimate that the basement staircase needed to have the walls re-stuccoed. He wanted to simply patch it. His sub-contractors said there was no way to effectively match the old pattern and said it needed to be re-done (which took him 2 hours). The owner seemed to think this was 'striking a deal' with sub-contractors. The original contractor came over a couple of weeks later to gather some of his equipment and was pretty upset and actually wanted to fix some things. My original contractor was just as angry as we were about his tiling skills...uneven, complete mess. The words 'complete hack' was used. Pictures speak a thousand words. Look at the gaps, look at the slop of grout on wood, look how the tiles were cut to areas that 'people would not see it' . My 90 year old mother who has difficulty seeing, called out how unacceptable the doors were...this gap is when the doors are closed

The team did a great job on our bathroom and finished the project a day and half ahead of schedule. They cleaned up after themselves and while preforming the work, laid down plastic and tarp so they wouldn't get the house dirty. I would recommend them to anyone who needs tile work done.

My church hired Jose to install a ceramic tile floor and a floating laminate floor in the hallways and stairways of our old convent, which is being restored for adaptive reuse. Jose was courteous, timely, thoughtful and helpful with decision-making throughout the process. He was patient and receptive when we changed plans, and he responded quickly to texts and phone calls along the way. He was attentive to detail, kept his work area clean and neat, and followed through with all commitments without reminders. We are extremely pleased with the end product and would proudly recommend Jose to anyone in need of professional floor installation.

I found Transition Construction on Thumbtack. My job was small but tricky - how to fill a 1-inch tall gap between tub and tile? The previous owner used a tacky strip of vinyl. Jeremy assured me it would look much better with caulk. See photos for the result. His employee didn't removed the glue from the previous vinyl before he began caulking, and didn't know how to caulk, assuring me the bubbles would disappear in the morning and I could remove the glue by myself and straighten the lines with a razor knife. They didn't, and I couldn't (the glue was too mixed in with the caulk. I sent Jeremy these photos and he agreed it was a terrible job, apologized and offered me a refund. That was in October 2021. After numerous calls and texts, he has now ghosted me. It is March 2022 and I still haven't received a refund and suspect I never will.

Dave was extremely responsive from day one. He came in as a hero when a past contractor went missing in action. This was an odd project in a 130 year-old home. He was able to not only reverse engineer what the last contractor had started (not properly done), but finished up with a phenomenal looking attic bathroom addition. He was also able to step in and finish an additional unit that I needed assistance with. This was installing a bathroom exhaust fan, new kitchen sink, tile and countertop. I have owned rentals for over 15 years but I treat them as if I would live in them. Dave understands this and his quality of work is top notch. It's rare to find someone that can handle almost any project these days. It's even more rare that they show up on time and actually finish the project at the agreed upon price. I wouldn't think twice about hiring Dave and his crew back, and I've already engaged him for my next unit remodel.
