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. 

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.

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.

What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tile?

Ceramic and porcelain are some of the more popular types of tile, but there are a few differences: 

Porcelain Tile

Ceramic Tile

More durable, have a longer lifespan

Cheaper, easier to install

Better for high-traffic areas

Recommended for interior floors, walls

Slightly more water-resistant

Softer, easier to cut

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 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. 

Reviews for Conroe tile installers
Patricia W.
Miquel and his partner Dennis were very professional and their work is outstanding. I am an amateur renovating my home. There were several challenges in the project and Miquel and Dennis handled all of them perfectly. Challenge 1: I ordered tiles but did not measure the complete space and break out what size each tile needed to be. Miquel and Dennis calculated the sizing and installed the tile with an attractive pattern. Dennis made a lot of cuts to fit each piece and this really made the overall look of the tile a custom installation. Challenge 2: I did not want to remove the toilet for fear of it leaking. Miquel tiled around the toilet and maintained the straight line of the tile. The lines are perfectly aligned on all walls. Challenge 3: The tile store gave me the wrong color grout and I noticed it after Miquel had started to grout the walls. As I rushed to the store to get the right colored grout, Miquel cleaned up the wrong color. The new color went right over the old and you would never know the other color was laid down first. Challenge 4: Miquel touched up the grout on the floor tile in both the powder room and the kitchen so that it looks as new as the grout in the new wall tiles. I would recommend this crew highly and I would also pass along to other families who are looking for tile and marble contractors that these two are trustworthy, kind, conscientious, concerned and most of all very professional. You will be in good hands with Salgado's Tile & Marble. Thank you again, Miquel and Dennis. I am very grateful for your good work.

The gentleman with ADM Tile Style did an outstanding job with installing my backsplash in my kitchen. He was very professional, polite, skilled, and matriculate to details. His work ethic is desirable and amazing. I had limited knowledge on what was needed in order to install a backsplash. He assisted with purchasing the right grout, border, measurements and the right amount of tiles. His knowledge of tile installation is impeccable. At his first appointment to install the backsplash I didn’t have enough materials in order to finish the project. He made two trips out to my home and waited patiently until I could get all the needed materials. He was exceptional with cleaning up after the job. Many other organizations could learn from his skill set, professionalism, and customer service. I am very pleased with the work he provided and will recommend and utilize his service again. GREAT JOB!!!

Mr. Pablo did a great job installing my tile. He took his time and made sure everything looked good before he left. He also gives you advice on how to maintain your tile. He also told me he was going to arrive at 8am but arrive 15 minutes early and went straight to work. You can tell that he puts his customers first. I will most definitely hire him again for my next project.
