Hiring Wall Tile Installation Tradespeople Ten Tips

Tiling walls is one of those jobs that pays to hire an expert. The suitable tiles and a high-end finish can transform your bathroom or kitchen. Getting it wrong can look shoddy, cost you money to rectify, and cause water leak problems. To avoid making these mistakes, read my ten tips below.

  1. Always get three quotes for the tiling job to compare the prices. Unless saving money is your priority, a low price doesn’t always mean a high standard of work.

2. Check the reviews for each tiler and ask to see photographs of their recent projects.

3. Be clear on precisely what the tiler’s quote includes. Do the existing tiles need to be removed and disposed of? How many square meters of tiles do they need to install? Tell them about the tile material, shape and size. Intricate patterns will cost more, so make sure they know your design ideas in advance. Additional items to consider are who is supplying the tile edging trim, adhesive, grout and silicone.

4. Provide the tiler with pictures of your bathroom and the wall measurements.

5. Confirm the tile installation date and timescale of the tiling job.

6. Agree on the payment terms. Hold funds back until the job is completed and you are satisfied with the work.

7. Talk the tiler through the project on-site so they know what you want to achieve. Discuss where the main tile joining focal points are in the room, for example, centering a tile behind the shower control panel.

8. Keeping the tiler hydrated with tea and coffee can help keep the working relationship sweet! It also gives you an excuse to pop your head around the door to keep an eye on the progress.

9. Approve the job before releasing the final payment. Be mindful that you may not be happy with the results, so when you hire the tiler, ask what their procedure is should this situation arise. Some tilers may provide a guarantee for their work.

10. Leave an honest online review to help others looking to hire a tradesperson for their project.

Make sure you purchase suitable tiles for walls and floors. Remember that the bigger the tiles, the quicker the job, which will keep the costs down. Get a tile sample to feel the texture and how heavy it is. Lightweight tiles will be easier to adhere to walls.
