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
Reviews for Irving tiling professionals

We had 3 walls surrounding a bathtub that were tiled and new floor tile installed. Martinez Tile was the 4th company I had come out for an estimate. After the 3rd, I was about to give up finding someone I trusted until I met Tony. I hired him the same day. He was very knowledgeable and professional. The job was completed before schedule and the bathroom looks amazing. I would highly recommend Martinez Tile.

Fadi was very professional, responsive, and timely. Price seemed fair but he was not prepared for the level of detail needed for this job. Craftsmanship was poor. We had the tile replaced on our fireplace and cuts on the tile are not straight but jagged. I would have expected someone with experience cutting tile to take measures to ensure the tile is cut straight and looks good; or communicate it is a concern prior to starting the work. Now I am faced with trying to fix the problem myself or pay for new material and professional to come correct it.

We found Alex after talking to four tile installers. More than a tile installer, Alex is a true master of the craft. He installed approximately 180 sq ft of floor tile in the bathroom and entry area as well as 30 sq ft of wall tile on the fireplace. In both cases he faced challenges with structural imperfections to skillfully create a perfect quality job. He focused on the work with the passion of a true artisan. Alex is friendly and easy to work with. It was actually very nice to have him in our home for the five days he was doing the job. The skill Alex uses is second to none and I would easily use him again.

Hired Paul to tile Patio. The finished product is excellent. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. He also gave a competitive price which was very much appreciated. Only thing he could’ve done better is just general clean up. Getting rid of the unused tiles that had piled up in the corner by moving them to the front of the house for trash pick up would’ve been appreciated. Nonetheless, I am more than happy with the work and I would hire him again if need be. At the end of the day, it’s all about the end product and it looks great!

Eric did a great job replacing the back-splash in our kitchen. I would have given him an atta-boy for all five attributes -Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value, and Punctuality but Thumbtack would only allow me to choose three. I would certainly call on him again if I needed tile work done and would recommend him to my friends.

Just had my 4 bedroom home done by these these guys, and they did a good job. They moved furniture around and got the job done without me having to move my family into a hotel. The whole process only took a week and I’m still not sure how it went that fast. Hilda and her guys were pleasant around my family, and cleaned up well when the job was done. Had the best price quote from the 3 companies I called as well. I will recommend them to anyone that asks me for tile referrals now.
