Take The Tension Out Of Tiling With These Easy Steps

Installing tile without professional help can be time consuming and difficult. Eliminate hassle and hire a professional installer. Below are some tips to selecting the right tile installer for you:800px-Tiles_3

1. Look for a licensed installer.

Licensed installers have a C-54 Ceramic and Mosaic Tile Contractor license from the California Contractors State Licensing Board. Installers are required prove they have had four years of experience and must take a written test in order to acquire a license.

2. Ask for references.

Talk to your friends, family and neighbors to get referrals for a tile installer. Also, be sure to get referrals from the tile companies you research. Calling their previous customers will give you a great idea for their job performance and quality.

3. Compare Bids.

Speak to a few different tile installers to get pricing quotes on your project. Compare prices to find one that is reasonable.

“As a homeowner you should always ask for references. The cheapest quote isn’t always the best one nor is the most expensive quote the best one,” Cheryl Ingrassia of Southern California Tile said.
