How to Get an Accurate Estimate for Tile Work

When you’re thinking about adding tile throughout the home in many areas, then you want to make sure that you’re getting an accurate estimate. When working with a professional, they’re usually pretty good at giving a close idea of what it is going to cost to tile the part of the home.

You should always make sure to have them write down this estimate and then ask them how much of a percentage they would go over if something came up. You want to know the price difference that they might be off. So, 5% or 10% or more. When you do this, you can have an idea of what it might cost but having it in writing can secure a lower price.

Average Costs of Tile and Labor

When you go to purchase tile, the cost of the tile depends on what it is that you want. For an average tile that is durable and dependable, expect to spend around $4 to $5. This is just an idea. Some tiles can cost loss and some more, but it generally depends on what it is that you want and where it is going to be installed at.

The cost of the labor is generally around 20% profit after the cost of materials. This can run around $8 to $10 per square foot of tile that is installed in the home. This can add up fast depending on the size of the room. Not only that, but since these are average costs, the place you live in, the contractor you work with and the tile you choose is all going to make a big difference on the amount per square foot you spend.
