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.

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

Kara M.
I'm beyond happy with the result of our tile work. Anatolie and his workers did quality work quickly! We started off with a different contractor who left an absolute mess and no one was willing to finish the work except for Oscar Tile. They turned a bad situation into a great one. They were extremely responsive and very honest hard workers. Look no further than Oscar Tile for any tile needs, you won't regret it!

We used RTA Tile to install a kitchen backsplash. They did a very nice job, and worked quickly and efficiently. They also have a good eye and made recommendations based on the subway tile style (tight spacing) and caulking. We were thrilled with the results and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for excellent tile workmanship.

Kareem did a fantastic job on our new tile. Our previous tile was cracking because it was not installed correctly. Kareem suspected the underlayment after demolishing the old cracking tile, he put down the proper items to avoid any cracking in the future! He was very responsive and helpful in the process. He was diligent with his work! He was able to save the medallion that was on the old tile for us as well. Definitely would hire him again! He did a Beautiful job!

Just look at those floors! Tiling a patterned floor with stone tiles in a 125 y/o house isn’t easy. Kareem went above and beyond to make it look great. Thank you Kareem!

Surge was quick to respond and quote the tile work we needed done. His price was competitive and the work started right away. The tile worker, Dmitry, was especially detail-oriented installing tile in our shower and on our floor. He even redid some of the framing work another framer did in order to make sure the tile work looked precise. He communicated via text pictures during the project, which helped us make sure we got what we wanted. We are very happy with our new bathroom!

They were able to work quickly to tile a tub enclosure for me after an emergency repair I had done. The tile work came out beautifully and everyone was polite and punctual. Very happy with the results. The only cons would be there was some mess leftover like broken tile in the driveway and garbage left behind for us to dispose of. I wouldn't hesitate to hire again, however.

Dealing with Oscar Tile was positive from the first contact through the end of the job and payment. Anatolie was delightful to work with and the craftsmanship of the tiling was excellent. He was extremely punctual, a good communicator, the work area was kept clean and as a bonus I got to meet two cute sons!

Long story short....the first installation was not done by a proper tile expert so the entire job had to be redone. They incurred all the cost and fixed it right away which I greatly appreciated. The 2nd tile job was done much better and ultimately all turned out ok.

Leo’s crew came out to fix a previous contractor’s faulty tile job. They replaced several cracked tiles, grouted and caulked the entire tub surround and floor corners. Their work was flawless and they went out of their way to clean the entire workspace when finished. Will definitely be calling Leo when it’s time to remodel my other bathroom.

We hired them to do a tile job in our master bathroom shower. Anatoli and his team of plumbers, tilers and electricians were professional, knowledgeable, have amazing attention for detail and efficient. The tile job turned out beautiful and their waterproofing preparation was very thorough. I would hire these guys again! These guys show a remarkable sense of pride in what they do. They go the extra mile.

We are very happy with the work Anatolie and his crew did for us! We had our bathtub removed and a new one installed, and new tiles were put up. Anatolie had a plumber friend who did the tub work for much less than other plumbers quoted us, and he and his associates took great care installing the high quality Pratt & Larsen tiles we bought. Would definitely recommend!
