Choosing a Tiler

BE AWARE 

How to choose a good tiler

Tiles should be an investment for life. To safeguard your investment we suggest you:

  • Use a licensed tiler or waterproofer.
  • Only pay cash if the tiler issues you with a tax invoice.
  • Check the tiler has appropriate public liability insurance. (Can you afford to take the risk in your home or premises?)
  • Insist they give you a written description of the work to be done before they start and that you agree on a written price. If changes are made during the job, check the variation to the price.
  • Ensure the tiler or tiling company supplies you with a waterproofing certificate that is valid for at least seven years.
  • Ask for a referral to a reputable tiler.
  • Check the quality of the glue and materials to be used by the tiler with the manufacturer to ensure they are fit for purpose.
  • Ensure the job includes expansion joints which are required by law. Expansion joints must be clean and clear of all obstruction and filled with a flexible material such as silicone or polyurethane. Expansion joints can be created in a range of colours.
  • Ask for references from the prospective tiler and preferably view some current work.
  • Check that they are a member of a professional building association (such as the Master Builders).
  • Use your gut instinct about whether you trust them. Think about how they communicated with you and whether they explained things clearly. This will be the standard you can expect throughout the job.
  • Consider whether their appearance was clean and tidy and whether they remembered to take off their boots before walking through your home/premises. Remember, they could be working with and around your valuables!
