How to Find a Tiler

Hiring a tiler

Plentific recommends hiring a local professional tiler for two reasons: 1) due to the straight edges of tiles, if they are poorly placed then it is very easy to spot how untidy it is. 2) poorly placed tiles can also lead to leaks and damp. Hire a local professional tiler in order to avoid a costly mistake.

Plentific can help you along by generating a bespoke list of the best tiler in your local area with the specific skills to suit you, as well as providing quick access to customer reviews to help you compare your options.

What do you need to think about when finding a tiler?

When choosing your local tiler, you need to ensure you hire a qualified professional. Undertake multiple verification checks in order to make sure they are the right tiler for you.

First of all, you need to find out if they are registered with the British Standards Institute and you can do this by asking for their certification. Tilers registered with BSI are required to go through a rigorous entry process and must follow a strict code of conduct.

Think about the design, style and layout that you are envisioning for your property and consider whether you would like a tiler who has relevant experience. It may be with the design or even the materials. Ask if you can visit a current job site or, failing that, have some form of customer testimonial which would ideally include photographs. You’re looking for comments on quality, good customer service and neatness.

Their neatness is not just exemplified through their tiling, but also how they keep their materials stored while working. The best local tilers ensure their working area is tidy, with tiles neatly piled and not obstructing anyone.

An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.

What does a tiler do?

A tiler covers walls or floors with tiles in rooms such as domestic kitchens or bathrooms or it could be used in businesses such as retailers, hotels and restaurants.

It’s a tilers job on arrival to assess the area requested and calculate the number of tiles and amount of adhesive required. Your local tiler would cut the tiles to size and shape to fit the specific area, should the edges be round or not the right shape for a traditional square tile. They are also required to prepare the surface with plaster and applying grout as a finish.

How much does a tiler cost?

Tilers will charge you per sq meter of the area tiled, rather than per sq meter of the tiles used and the tile wastage should fall within 10%.

Use Plentific to compare prices for the best local tilers in your area. Plentific recommends that you speak to at least three local tilers to receive quotes in order to find the best professional for your home services.

Metin was punctual, polite and professional. We are very pleased with the work he has done today.
by Jamie H.
Metin was not only hugely professional, brilliant at the job in hand but he also went the extra mile by popping out to B&Q (twice!) when we realised our TV bracket was not the correct one. He was fantastic. I have dealt with a lot of builders and handymen recently and Metin was the best of the best. Will definitely be using again.

Pavel and Miroslaw reconfigured a cast iron drain stack to provide for an new toilet location. They had to revise the design whilst working as unexpected obstacles were uncovered as they were working. They still did a excellent job very quickly and left the work area clean and tidy. Good customer service and reasonable rates. I would have no hesitation in using them again.
