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. 

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

They were extremely professional. I had a very tough JOB. My floor tile was grouted incorrectly and very sloppy. To be honest my floor must be tiled again or grouted again from scratch. They actually got on their hands and knees with a machine and cleaned each of the tiles individually. In which has made a big difference. As well as referred me to a tile professional. Great JOB

We hired Martinez tile to tile our hall with wood look tile and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Martinez and his wife were easy to work with. The quotes were great, the job was punctual and thorough. I would definitely hire them again in the future!

Jose did an excellent job, was quick and thorough, and cleaned up afterwards. We highly recommend! He even recommended tiling a little extra since he noticed some cracks in our existing tile and was patient while we picked up more tile.

Job was to remove old linoleum and old tiles. Betos tile then installed tiles to entire 1200 sq ft home. They did a wonderful job and listened to our concerns and what we wanted. They had the best price estimate. They expertly laid the tiles properly and washed all the grout haze at the end without needing any extra chemicals. My floor is clean and shiny when they finished. I will use them again for my parents' home in the future when we upgrade.

Martinez Tile Company tiled my guest bathroom floor and shower and was a wonderful company with whom to work from start to finish! They professionally evaluated the job, provided a specific start date, and completed the job ahead of schedule, on budget, and beyond expectation. The tile used was marble and the patterns I wanted in the bathroom were somewhat intricate. They made good recommendations to enhance the design, and the end result is beautiful. I am so pleased and would highly recommend Martinez Tile to anyone looking for a professional, high quality result!

Mark is good tile person, everyone should hire him. Others told me 3 days to finish and ask for double $$$. Mark finish job in 1 day. I recommend him for tile work.

Mr. Lopez and his team are excellent. We are very pleased with the beautiful end product. The picture attached provides a snippet of the work. They worked on a fairly large project outdoors - tiling the patio area surrounding our BBQ. We tiled all the walls with a white and light grey large tile and then used a Spanish/Moorish-like floral-type pattern for an accent tile, colored muted grey with various other tones. The accent tile went on the wall behind the BBQ and on the 2 arches framing the area. Expertly applied by the Lopez team, the tile work result is magazine quality work, at what we felt was a reasonable price. The crew showed up timely each day, kept the area clean, and worked safely. Mr. Lopez is not a "glad-hander." He's a pro, polite and friendly to a point - he gets the work done well, following your input and directions --while providing his expertise. I would call him any day, for any tile project.
