Tilers In Wellington: For A Flawless Surface First Time

Wellington can be cold and windy, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t have tilers lining up to venture out in the elements and complete your job.

There is some great tiling work done around Wellington city. The Wellington Central Library features some prominent tiling work, Athfield’s building winning many architecture awards. The wind turbine ceramic tiles on the footpaths of Brooklyn. The tiled foyer of the Embassy Theatre.

Whether your tiling job is a masterpiece or a quick repair, get the low-down on what tilers can do right here.

What sort of jobs do tilers do?

The main area of work for your average tiler is in wall and floor tiling in kitchens and bathrooms. This includes areas like bath and shower surrounds and splashbacks. They can also lay tiling in other areas of the house including floors, staircases, and fireplaces, and can use blocks to create small walls such as a glass brick wall.

Tiling professionals also have experience in outdoor tiling, including swimming pools, outdoor walls and floors, mosaics, and other areas. They can fix broken tiles, conduct regrouting on existing tiles, add waterproofing to tiles, remove old tiles, and polish tiles too.

How much will my tiling job cost?

If you source tiles yourself then you may just stumble across a bargain. Otherwise it’s best to consult with your tiler and help them to arrange to purchase tiles on your behalf. Small mosaic tiles can cost from $30 per square metre upwards. 6mm cork tiles can be found at around $30 per square metre also. 2mm vinyl tiles can be purchased from around $20 per square metre. Search around to ensure you’re getting a good price. Make sure to check in with your tiler that the ones you choose are appropriate for your area.

As for the total costs of getting your tiling work done, if you are looking at removing existing indoor tiled flooring then you can expect to pay between $730 and $1,200 for 15 square metres of flooring. To lay new tiling over the same area will cost between $1,600 to $3,400. Prices vary depending on the material of the tile and the size of the tile.

What sort of qualifications should my tiler have?

Before you hire a tiler, make sure to do a little background check on them. Ask for photos of previous work that they’ve completed, ask for references to call, check their feedback score on Builderscrack, and give them a quick Google.

Some tilers may have received a qualification through completing the National Certificate in Floor and Wall Tiling, which is a three-year apprenticeship program ran by the Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation, whereas other tiling contractors have simply obtained experience on the job.

How do I find a tiler?

Use Builderscrack to post an ad for job. Include timeframes, pictures, measurements, and materials involved to give potential contractors as much information as possible. Once your job is posted, you’ll have tilers contacting you to fill the job, giving you the ability to pick and choose who you’d like to hire. Easy as that.

Expert Tiling Provides The Finishing Touch to a Kitchen Renovation

Hiring an expert tiler gave the final polishing touch to one of our homeowner's stunning kitchen renovations...... Only a few months ago Natalie's kitchen was a dark space, coated in the once popular dark blue of the 90's. It not only made the already small kitchen appear tiny, but it created a dark feeling throughout the wider open plan living area. Fast forward to today, and the transformation is something out of a magazine. Not limited to the kitchen itself, but also the lightness it's brought to the rest of her living space. The Vision Natalie started with a firm style in mind, along with some key "must have" elements. “I had a vision of what I wanted, I wanted it bright, fresh, clean, compared with the dark blue.... every time I came into the space there was a gloomy feel to the room.” A essential element was to incorporate a crisp, white subway tile splash-back. The Execution After sorting her kitchen supplier, she turned her attention to finding a ti
