Tilers in Auckland

Whether you’re from the North Shore or from South Auckland, you take pride in your home. Adding and removing specific elements can make your house ten times better than it already looks.

And when you think about it, there are many places around the city where a beautiful tiling job stands out. The toilets at Kawakawa are the main tourist attraction, with their Middle Earth tiles. The Auckland Civic Theatre with its inspired construction and tiled roof. The Auckland Town Hall with its glazed ceramic tiling.

Auckland tiling professionals are the ones to see when you’ve got a tiling job that needs doing.

What jobs does a tiling contractor do?

Tilers are generally skilled in all areas of tiling. This includes:

  • Kitchen and bathroom tiling
  • Tile removal and fixing
  • Regrouting
  • Waterproofing
  • Tile polishing
  • Outdoor tiling
  • Fireplace tiling
  • Swimming pool tiling

Some tilers may specialise in one particular area, e.g. mosaic tiling. A full tiling job is labour intensive: from removing current flooring, to planning and measuring, cutting tiles, floor preparation, carefully laying the tiles, grouting, setting time and finishing.

Tilers have either learned their trade from on the job training, or a combination of on the job and formal training, by completing their three year apprenticeship course – the National Certificate in Floor and Wall Tiling, which is offered by the Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation.

What will my tiling job cost?

Your total tiling costs are heavily influenced by the type of tiles that you purchase. Tiles, depending on material and size can cost anywhere from a few dollars a metre for bargain or second hand tiles, all the way through to several hundred for intricate mosaics. You can either shop around yourself, or purchase through your tiler. If you are purchasing yourself, ensure you chat to a tiler first to see what is appropriate for your area.

Tile installation costs from around $30/metre for cork tiles, up to around $90/metre for small mosaic tiles. These costs vary depending on what is required to seal and finish the tiles.
