What do porcelain tile installation services include?
Tile installation is a meticulous and detailed process, which is why it’s best to hire a professional instead of doing it yourself. While details of each service may vary, porcelain tile installers are skilled in levelling surfaces, preparing tile layouts, and installing the tiles themselves.
The whole process may also involve using tile cutters, electric mixers, and tile spacers. Sounds like a lot, right? Don’t worry because you can request for your Tasker to bring all the necessary materials! Here’s a quick guide to essential porcelain tile installation services.
Planning and layout
Before anything else, your Tasker will most likely visit you first to measure the to-be-tiled area. Planning the layout includes figuring out how many tiles are needed and what order they should be laid out. Depending on the size of the surface, your hired Tasker may also have to cut some tiles to ensure they fit perfectly.
Feel free to be as detailed as possible when making a post about your tiling needs on Airtasker. If you prefer, a Tasker can also suggest what type of tile is best for you. Porcelain tiles come in a variety of glazed, matte, and textured options.
Levelling surfaces for tile installation
The room where tiling is supposed to take place should be cleared of furniture and appliances. If your tiling needs involve having a surface re-tiled, the Tasker may have to remove the existing tiles first.
Whether it’s a concrete floor, a wall, or a kitchen counter, your Tasker will ensure that the surface is as smooth and clean as possible before tile installation. Prep work such as patching cracks and holes, filling depressions, and scrubbing the surface clean may be needed.
Installing your porcelain tiles
Once your Tasker has planned the layout and levelled the surface, they will install the tiles. This involves creating thinset, a mixture that is responsible for keeping tile attached to the surface. Your Tasker will then carefully lay the tile one by one. The next step usually involves grouting, which is done to fill in gaps between the tiles.
With the tiles installed, the Tasker will then check everything to make sure there are no cracks. They will then clean the area and pack up their equipment.
Of course, tile installation isn’t the only thing a Tasker can help you with for your home improvement needs. You can also find someone to assemble your furniture, repair cracked paving, or even renovate your bathroom.
