Choosing the right Tiler
A small mistake in wall or floor tiling could make a big difference and cause you to be irritated every time you use the bathroom.
Incorrect measurements, tile cuts, grout lines with different widths and unevenly placed tiles can ruin the look of a room.
It is crucial to choose the right auckland tilers to realize your tiling dreams. A tiler’s work, like painters, is always visible. It can make your bathroom renovation truly special if it is done correctly.
How do you find the right tiler to give you the results you desire?
These are some tips to help you choose the best tiler, and avoid the pitfalls that can lead to poor results.
Hire a professional
Employing a “mate of a friend” to tile a few bathrooms is not a smart idea. They are unlikely to be BCITO-qualified, which means you have no recourse if something goes wrong. It’s also unlikely that they have the experience or skills to provide the results you want. Hire a BCITO-qualified professional to do your tiling and give your bathroom a beautiful finish.
Choose a tiler who has extensive tiling experience for domestic tiling jobs.
There are two types of tiling: domestic and commercial. A competent domestic tiler is required to achieve the perfect finish for your tiling. Select the right tradesman to do the job.
You should look for track records and experience:
Tilers, like most trades, build their businesses by doing quality work. Most of their work comes via referrals.
Ask for photos of past work.
Ask to see examples of their recent work.
Visit the website of the tiler:
Today, most tradesmen have a website to showcase their work. Does it have the most current information? Are there reviews from clients? What was their experience with the service? The internet is a great place to start.
What are the signs of professional tile installation?
Look for straight grout lines and consistent spacing when you are looking at completed tiling projects. Do you like the layout? Are the feature tiles used to great effect?
A skilled tiler will start by measuring the room in the middle and then work outwards to ensure that the tiles are cut at the same size around the edges. Check the doors and windows to ensure that your tiler is skilled in laying tiles in tight areas. These seemingly insignificant details will help you select the right tiler to do your job.
What are the questions you should ask?
- Request a written quote. A reputable tile contractor will provide you with a written quote. Before the work begins, you should know how much deposit is required. This is Greenstone Tiling’s standard practice and there are no hidden fees.
