Porcelain tiles are perfect for shower floors and walls and similar high moisture areas.

Cost Of Tile Installation

Tile is an affordable and long-lasting flooring option, but the cost of materials varies greatly. Laying tile flooring is not a simple as it appears and while many DIYers try their hand at it, they run the risk of an expensive mistake.

Tile needs to be installed on a strong cement surface, homes built on a slab have an advantage, but most homes will need the subflooring completely removed and prepared for the new tile. Most homes, whether a cement slab or cement board, will need a 1-1/4″ concrete compression and leveling layer between tiles and floor base.

The base cost of a tile installation, labor and floor preparation without the cost of tiles is a median of $5 per square foot.

Ceramic tiles are some of the most affordable, but if you are looking at decorative or porcelain tile, your costs can shoot upward. We can often find less expensive options if the tile you want has put your project beyond your budget.

We want to make your flooring dreams come true so we will work with any budget. We can help you get the look you want at a lower cost and faster installation time. Give us a call and see what we can do for you.
