About Bathroom Tiling

Bathroom tiling can really improve the look of your bathroom. Whether it's a tiling job or a complete bathroom remodel, a pro will make sure your bathroom is in top shape.

The complete cost for tiling will depend on a few factors, such as the size and complexity of the work. So it is always best to get a more specific quote from a tiling pro.

Considerations

Tiling experts are often brought in to repair or replace bathroom tiles. Make sure you find the right professional for your tiling needs.

Type of Tiling Project

Fitting new, high-quality tiles in your bathroom can give your home a perfect fresh look. To achieve this it’s best to bring in a bathroom tiling expert pro. They'll make sure your bathroom stays watertight during the process.

A pro can also repair damaged and cracked tiles. Common repairs include replacing the affected tile or sealing cracks. Speedy repairs are sometimes necessary to prevent damage from turning into costly leaks.

Then perhaps you simply want to maintain your existing tile. An expert can make sure that your current tiles are still water tight so they won't leak. Maintaining your tiles periodically will help to ensure that you prevent any future issues.

The Material of Your Tiles

After you've decided to put in new bathroom tiles, you’ll need to choose the right type for your project.

Stone tiles come in many styles and materials. When using them in a bathroom, you'll need to seal your tiles to make them watertight.

Vinyl bathroom tiles look just like stone or ceramic tile with added durability and can be cost-effective as well. Make sure that you choose tiles that are waterproof though!

Traditional ceramic and porcelain tiles are the most popular choice for bathrooms. Porcelain tiles are denser than ceramic and tend to absorb less water.

You'll want to consider these factors when making your selection.

Area of The Bathroom You Plan to Tile

Tile is a great choice for many surfaces in your bathroom. Still, the area you plan to tile can influence your tile choice as some tiles are better suited to different areas of the room.

When installed properly tiled floors will withstand the moist and steamy conditions of your daily routines. Tiling your walls and your tub/shower enclosure will keep your walls watertight and ensure no leakage occurs as a result of regular use.

You may also want to add tile to your sink space. A tiled countertop or backsplash is easy to clean and keep dry.

It's very important that the tile in your bathroom is watertight. A pro can save you the hassle by making sure the job is properly completed the first time.

Preparation For Tiles

Before starting your floor tiling project, make sure your space is properly prepared. Tiles are easier to install on smooth, level surfaces. You can tile directly onto plywood, cement, or plasterboard but you will need to remove carpet or old tile first.

You could also opt to install underfloor heating. This is installed underneath the tile’s surface.

So it will need to be installed prior to the installation of tiling. If you would like to add underfloor heating, ask your bathroom expert to check if it is a viable option for your space.

If you do the removal and surface prep yourself, it is possible to cut costs. However, if you don’t have experience with tile removal it may still be better to let a pro tackle this. They can then expertly prepare the space for new tile and remove any old floor underlay.

Time

The length of time it takes to tile a bathroom can vary substantially between projects. It is highly dependent on space and time.

Complicated tile patterns will take more time to lay out and cut to fit. Prep work to ready the surface may add extra time as well, so be sure to consider this in your expectations. 

If you aren't sure how long it will take, ask your installer for a rough time estimate. That way you can find out how long the tile will take to properly set before you can enjoy it. 

Experience

Sometimes, bathroom renovations can feel overwhelming. A pro with tiling experience can help you feel less stressed about the process of your tiling project. You can trust them to make sure it gets done right rather than trying to figure it out on your own. After all, you don't want your bathroom to leak causing a huge mess.

Most professionals will have photos of previous projects so that they can share samples of their work. These can inspire your own bathroom tiling project and reassure you of your expert’s experience.

Reviews are also helpful when it comes to working history. When hiring a bathroom tiling professional on Bidvine you can check out these reviews on their Bidvine profile.

Location

Since the location of the worksite is set, you'll want to find a local bathroom tiling expert.

Depending on where you live, the hourly rate charged by your pro may vary. In areas, with a higher cost of living and higher transportation costs, your pro’s rates will naturally be higher. So, you can generally expect your pro’s pricing to align with your local costs.

Still, it is always best to speak with your professional directly to determine exactly how location will factor into the pricing of your project.

Summary

Installing tile can be a lot of work to get just right. Making the wrong decision can turn into a messy and costly mistake. Instead of DIY, leave this project up to the professionals!

Bathroom tiling experts can repair tile. It'll look great and stay watertight. They can also install new tile when you're ready for a bathroom makeover. Best of all, you won't have to do the work yourself. You can simply enjoy the results.
