Your new wall or floor tiles will be an essential part of your home's look and no matter how stylish they are, that look can be so easily ruined if the floor tiles are not laid properly.
A small error can be an eyesore: just one (even slightly) badly positioned tile can spoil both the pattern and the grout line of your carefully chosen floor tiles. Worse, this seemingly small error can be expensive to put right.
Paying the same attention to choosing your professional tiler as choosing your wall or floor tiles will more than repay your time and effort.
Your first stop should be at a tile supplier who supplies contractors. They will be able to recommend professional and experienced floor tilers to you.
Once you have at least 3 names on your list check each one for their credentials. How long have they been professionally laying floor tiles? At least three years is a good period in which to build a client base of satisfied customers. Ask each one for their references and don't be fobbed off with photos (which could have been digitally altered). Insist on seeing at least one installation.
Here are some key considerations when looking at a floor tiles installation:
Clear instructions and communications are essential so that there are no misunderstandings. Your tiler can't 'second guess' what you want from your new wall or floor tiles! As well as the quotation for the actual work it's always advisable to get the details in writing, for example, who is responsible for buying the tiles and other materials. Check the direction in which the pattern will run and ensure that your tiler is clear about your wishes. Even a plain rectangular tile can be laid either portrait or landscape, so be sure to discuss this with your tiler. Be precise!
