Tiling is one of the most popular home finishes, particularly in bathrooms and kitchens. It offers a range of different colours and finishes, which means people can personalise the look of their room. Tiles are also a hard-wearing option and, when applied correctly, can help to protect walls and floors from water damage. It is therefore important (for both the aesthetic and durability of the room), to find the best tiler for the job.
Considerations when hiring a tiler
Tiling is a common tradesman skill and many handymen and fitters will be able to offer this service, there are also dedicated tilers who focus solely on installing tiles. The type of tradesperson required will depend on the individual project. If tiling is part of a wider kitchen or bathroom installation, then it may be worth having one installer complete all the work for the sake of convenience. If a customer is looking for a larger or more specialist tiling project, such as outdoor tiling for example, then it may be worth opting for a dedicated tiler instead.
To ensure you receive the service you require it’s a good idea to ask to see examples of previous projects from their portfolio, as well as requesting to be put in touch with past clients. Speaking to other customers should give you an indication of the tiler’s professionalism, the standard of their finish and how quickly they are able to work.
It’s also worth asking if the tiler has any qualifications. There are several different trade associations that a tiler may be a member of, including The Tile Association, Guild of Master Craftsmen and Federation of Master Builders.
Ultimately though, their experience is what is most important. Ask as many questions as possible to gauge how experienced and skilled the tradesperson is, as well as enquiring about any guarantees or warranties available, before committing to the contract. After all, the more comfortable the customer feels, the smoother the whole process will be.
