You’ll see nods to earthquake proofing new buildings, such as the clay tiles used on The Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln, modelled to look like bricks but with far more seismic resistance. New places have sprung up like Supreme Supreme coffee, with its industrial look tiled floors and splashbacks, replacing the old Hop Yip supermarket.
Find a chch tiler to help make your project just as beautiful as the new works in our city.
A tiler’s repertoire
Tilers are known for their intricate tiling work. Trimming tiles, laying them straight and not getting grout all over the place is a true art form. Also known as kitchen and bathroom tilers, a tiling contractor can help with more than just these two rooms of your house.
Tilers can create glass brick walls, lay outdoor tiling and swimming pool tiling, tile your fireplace and surrounds, and waterproof your tiles too.
A tiler generally has learned his or her trade through experience in the job, although they may have studied an apprenticeship through the Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation.
The cost of tiling
In some tiling jobs, the cost of the tiles themselves outweighs the workmanship. Specialist tiles can cost a few hundred dollars per metre. You can also pick up tiles for just a few dollars a metre. If you’re unsure of where to begin, your tiling expert will be able to point you in the right direction.
A new tile bathroom floor of 10 square metres will cost anywhere from $1,110 to $2,200, while removal of old tiles of the same area will be between $490 and $790.
Costs change depending on the materials used and the tiler’s level of experience.
