Not only is splashback tiling complicated and time-consuming, but mistakes are also tricky to hide and costly to fix. Hiring specialists for kitchen splashbacks near you can save you from all the headaches and help you achieve that picture-perfect tiled finish. They cover every step of the installation, from splashback tile measurement, surface preparation and skilful installation to even cleaning and finishing.
If you’re working on a full renovation, Airtasker also has plenty of architects who can plan and design the best kitchen space in a budget that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Here’s what to expect when you book a splashback fitting service for your kitchen wall:
If you want to achieve a clean, successful tiling, you first need an adequately prepared wall surface. It needs to be clean, dry, and flat to allow consistent bonding of your splashback tiles. Your tile fitter can help remove any popped nails, sand them smooth, and wipe away dust, grease, or any elements that might compromise the adhesion. If your wall is too bumpy and unevenly textured, you can also hire someone to plaster your walls to guarantee that your tiles will not prematurely lose its grip in the future.
Once the space is all set, your Tasker then measures the wall surface to ensure that you're made to measure splashbacks are a perfect fit. You can have them fitted on the entire wall surface or only half-height, depending on your preferred stopping point. If your splashbacks aren’t exactly made to measure, a tiler may also do a little tile cutting and make sure that they fit smoothly around a corner or other obstructions like a plug socket or switch.
The installation process includes the application of tile adhesive, laying down the splashback to the wall, and grouting. Using a notched trowel, your tile fitter spreads a generous amount of tile adhesive across the wall surface, usually starting from the bottom centre. From there, they carefully remove the protective film and lay each row of tiles along with grout spacers underneath each edge. Grouting your tiles comes after the tile adhesive has dried and set in place. Finishing the task, your Tasker can help clean the joints and remove any powdery film or residue.
How about making your kitchen space a little more functional and organised? Our platform can help you get someone who can design and build a custom cabinet that matches your individual needs. You can also hire someone to install your kitchen appliances and make sure that they are working smoothly and efficiently.
Now that your kitchen project is taken care of, perhaps you’re also looking for help in upgrading your bathroom? The good news is that splashback tiles also work perfectly in wet rooms. Depending on your preference, your tile fitter can install new splashback tiles behind your sink or vanity, around your beloved bathtub or shower enclosures, or pretty much in any area that is always damp and wet.
