If you don’t have years of experience in professional tiling, then hiring a floor tile fitter near you is the smartest, most practical decision to make. They cover the entire process, from preparation to actual laying of tiles, grouting, and even a few finishing. They can also lend a hand in estimating the number of tiles and adhesives needed to reduce waste and minimise costs. Here are some of the things to expect when you book a floor tiling service from Airtasker:
To achieve the highest quality results, you need to prepare a flat, stable, and dry floor surface. So if you are building from scratch, you may need to install a subfloor or level the floor first to ensure that the tiles will consistently stay in place. As for any existing floor surface, professional tilers can help clean and remove the old adhesive and mortar for maximum bonding.
After the floor surface has been all dried and polished, your tile fitter starts applying the tile adhesive or dry bond mortar. Using a gauging trowel, they spread the mixture across the area, ideally starting on the section where the tiles will be laid down first. This process is done at a fast pace to prevent the adhesive from drying and hardening. A nice adhesive bed ensures that the tiles will adhere as evenly and seamlessly as possible.
Finally, the time to start laying down your floor tiles! The process depends on the type and format of your floor tiles. Regular tiles are directly pressed on top of the adhesive bed. As for the larger tiles, your tile fitter may first apply a thin adhesive at the back, securing that they will bond well with the floor surface. To ensure even spacing, they may also put a tile spacer at each corner, right below the tiles.
If you are working on a new bathroom construction, it is best to waterproof the surface before installing the tiles. This way, you’ll never have to worry again about water leaking or penetrating the inside of your tiles, and further damaging the building sheet.
Once the tiles and adhesives are set in place, your Tasker then proceeds with the last step – grouting your tiles. Using a bucket trowel of grout float, they spread the grout mixture into the respective joints between the tiles, until they have completely covered the tile spacers. Afterwards, they apply excess grout using a damp sponge or cloth. Usually, it takes a few minutes to hours before the grout lines will completely dry. While waiting, you can start cleaning the place and segregating all waste accumulated from the floor tiling. From there, a building waste removal expert can drop by to pick up your rubbish bins and send them to their designated routes.

I require floor tiling of a 14m2 kitchen. Tiles are 600 x 600 porcelain. Floor is currently bare slab that will likely require self levelling. Kickboards are not yet installed so cuts don't need to be spot on around the kitchen cabinetry as they will be covered by the kickboards. My budget is an estimate only. I am open to offers. Happy to provide photos if required.

Spring Hill, Queensland, Australia
13th Apr 2017
Our investment property in Spring Hill is needing some tiling work in the shower of the bathroom. It is a concrete/block construction apartment on the second floor of a 5 storey apartment building. Originally built in 1984 and most fittings in our unit are still there from the original build. We recently had an ageing enamelled steel shower base rusting, tired old sliding shower screen and ageing tiles coming away from the walls in shower cubicle. We have removed the old shower screen and steel shower base plus also jack hammered away the old concrete bed in which the old steel shower base was moulded into. The flat concrete subfloor from the building construction remains and is all neat and tidy awaiting a new shower installation. All wall tiling and old villaboard in the shower cubicle has been removed. We have stripped all old glues and other rubbish so it is back to bare concrete. We therefore now need: - New villaboard applied to concrete/block walls. - Floor levelling compound to floor such that a nice flat, tiled floor can be done and matched/meeting up with the old/current floor tiles in the rest of the room. Obviously a gradient at the right angle towards the drain hole so water can effectively run off. - Waterproofing to villaboard and floor (please don't try and tell me that waterproofing membrane doesn't need to be applied to villaboard. That is what I want, so please do the right thing and quote on doing so). - Tiling and grout to the waterproofed villaboard and floor. - Supply and Installation of a nice new glass hinged shower screen which you will need to supply (sliding door with aluminium frame is a no-no). - Nice new silver drain outlet on floor. (you to supply). - New tapware and shower head needed (you to supply). Current plumbing is all in tact so no work needed there. - Re-grouting of a few other tiles elsewhere in the bathroom (we replaced these ourselves, but need to be grouted in white). Note that we have already purchased replacement tiles for the shower cubicle and they are ready and waiting at Beaumont Tiles Strathpine. Either you can pick them up or we can get them delivered to site. The new tiles will need to cover 5.7 square metres but we purchased 5 boxes of tiles which are 6.75 square metres in total so we are confident more than enough tiles will be available for the job. The new tiles are a simple matte grey in 300x300. The old tiles are an odd 220x220 size. The new tiles are to be the same for both wall and shower floor and I would say a dark grout colour similar to tile colour should be used. We also have some of the old tiles which remain undamaged (about 24 tiles). These tiles are already sitting waiting in the bathroom and will need to be re-applied in some adjoining areas such that there is a clear interface between the old tiles and the new. Please remember that we are not re-tiling the whole bathroom, just the shower cubicle plus some small adjoining areas which also broke away when we removed the shower tiles. Old tiles re-used in the old areas will need to be grouted white. I have plenty of pictures to share with you to accurately describe what it is we want done. You are also welcome to take the keys and check it out yourself if you wish. The property is untenanted so access any time is easy. We live out of town so cant really attend the site to walk you through it. We have a property/rental manager to attend site if you really need to. They are at Havig & Jackson realty in Clayfield (that is where you will need to collect the keys for apartment from). Working hours for noise-making are 8am to 6pm weekdays and we don't need to get approval from body corporate to make noise if you can perform the work between these times. There are a few other aspects of this project I would love for you to help solve if you can: A. The painted ceiling in the bathroom is peeling. It would be great if you also have the skills to pay the bills on repainting the ceiling. If so, please quote on this also. By the way, we may want the rest of the 1 bedroom apartment ceiling to be painted at a later date, so if you are good at ceiling painting that part of the project MAY happen in a few months time. B. All the old shower screen and tray and concrete and damaged tiles and mouldy villaboard and all the other junk I had to tear out is currently sitting in a pile in the allocated car park in the basement. It would be awesome if you could quote a price on taking that stuff to the tip. By my eyeball it looks like about 1 cubic metre of junk. C. If you have any contacts who are good at installing Air Conditioning we would like to hear it. We are thinking we might install AC in the coming months, but that is just a thought for now. Any recommendations are welcome. We would like the work done in the coming weeks. As the tiles are ready to go, even if you said you could start tomorrow we wouldn't object. If you say you cannot do it until mid May or later then I am probably going to say that is too long to wait. I strongly suggest you give me the opportunity to share pics of the project with you by email. Sharing your email address would be good so I can very specifically show you in the pics what we are wanting to do. Budget: To be honest we don't really know and hope that if we get three or four quotes that we we will start to see what the ballpark cost is going to level out at. We aren't the types to pick the most expensive quotes but we are realistic and know that we shouldn't be accepting the cheapest quotes either. The apartment is not the Hilton Hotel so we don't need world class, expensive work and fittings because it is an investment property after all, but we also have high standards so if you try and send your drunk apprentice in to do an elcheapo dodgy brothers quick job with poor standards we aren't going to accept that either. We can pay any way you wish, credit card, bank transfer, cash in hand etc but we will expect a GST invoice for tax purposes. I would expect a fair and reasonable payment term would be something like half upon awarding the business and half upon satisfactory completion or similar. Feel free to ask any questions and as above, would suggest sharing email address so I can email you specific pictures of what we want done. Cheers, Matt
