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.

Francisco and his partner did a GREAT job installing the new tile in our laundry room! They were responsive, punctual and completed the job in just a few hours. We will definitely be working with Tile and Flooring Experts again in the future!

Russell did a great job on our tile job especially dealing with our uneven walls and interesting design requirements. Russell was a complete professional, very polite, and finished the tub surround on time. We're really impressed with his eye for tile work and would highly recommend him.

Francisco and his team did an excellent job tiling my boys bathroom. They were punctual everyday and were very neat. I have referred them to several of my friends and will hire him again to do my master bathroom

Francisco was amazing. We did a 650 square foot entry/kitchen/bathroom/laundry/closets porcelain tile upgrade and he was fantastic. The end result is amazing but equally important, Francisco treated our home with care and respect. My wife and I work from home plus we have three dogs. He was super cool about accommodating us and our dogs. He and his team couldn’t have been any nicer! Will definitely hire again and recommend everyone looking for tile work to consider Francisco. His pricing was also far better than anyone else.

Ed installed ceramic tile in my half bath & did a great job. He was easy to communicate with & very responsive throughout the project. His price was also much more reasonable than other quotes I had previously received. Would definitely hire Ed again.

I was initially impressed with the price quoted. We had a tile shower installed and it looked great to start out. Then some of the grout started to collapse in spots. The shower started leaking around the drain. They came out and redid the drain when I called them. Once again, it looked good when they were done. About a week or so later, it started leaking again. This time, I notified them, but decided to fix it myself. The drainpipe wasn't properly sealed around the mortar, or the drain cover. I ended up resealing the pipe and replacing grout and river stones that had broken loose because they had applied silicone sealer under the cover, which flexed when stepped on and broke the surrounding grout. We had also discussed several other projects that they said they could do, but we couldn't get a return call several times, They also just never showed up for a scheduled job, and when we did hear from them, they said they had gotten tied up elsewhere. I wouldn't recommend them, or use them in the future.
