If you are renovating or building a new bathroom, one of the elements that can make a big impact on your overall bathroom is the tiling. While you may think that tiling is one area you can do yourself to cut costs, getting a professional tiler in means that you’ll have a job that looks perfect and will last the test of time. Here’s what you need to know about bathroom tilers.
Bathroom tilers are professionals that are trained to correctly lay tiles, not only in the bathroom but other areas of the home. Generally speaking, the tiler will calculate the number of tiles that are required for the particular project. They will then prepare the surfaces (cleaning, measuring, and marking where the tiles are to go etc), spread the adhesive, and then lay the tiles on to the adhesive. The tiler then ensures that the tiles are completely level before applying grout to the spaces between the tiles. If laying bathroom floor tiles, the tiler will ensure that the tiles have the correct slope to a drain, so that water can drain away without causing problems. Where necessary, the tilers will carefully cut the tiles to ensure that any gaps are filled and to ensure that the project looks finished.
Bathroom tilers can undertake a brand new tiling project, make repairs to existing tiling, or lay new tiles only where they are required. Tiling can be done on walls or floors. They work with all types of tiles such as ceramic, slate, porcelain, granite, marble, or other types of stone tiles.
When hiring a tiler for your bathroom project, you need to make sure that they are correctly qualified, licensed, and insured. Ask to see examples of their previous work, or to see references if possible. The tiler should be willing to give you a free no obligation quote that includes labour costs and the cost of the materials (tiles, adhesives, grout, etc).
