What jobs does a tiling contractor do?
Tilers are generally skilled in all areas of tiling. This includes:
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.
