Planning to install a ceramic tile floor? You can expect to pay in the
range of $1,100 to $5,645 for 120 square feet (the size of a smallish
kitchen or a large master bathroom). That includes standard quality
tiles, supplies, and labor.
The cost to install your tile floor will depend on:
- Size of area to be tiled
- Size and shape of tiles
- Quality and design of the tiles
- Tile layout (straight, offset, or diagonal)
- Design details like borders or inserts
- Condition of subfloor
Cost to install a ceramic tile floor will normally include:
Get the Most for Your Money
- Materials -- Standard ceramic floor tile is a reasonably priced
floor covering, although elegant designer tiles can be much
more costly. Porcelain ceramic is also more expensive, but is
more durable and lower maintenance, as well.
- Supplies -- Tools and supplies such as adhesive, trowels,
and screws are normally included in the cost.
Labor -- If you want a complex tile design or if you need
to have your sub-flooring replaced or reinforced is necessary,
this will add to the cost.
Cleanup -- The cost generally includes cleanup. However,
demo and removal of existing flooring may be at an additional charge.
Estimate -- The initial estimate, which may include onsite
measurement, is often free.
Measure your floor carefully and purchase 10-20 percent extra
to allow for breakage, if you are the one who's buying the tiles.
Keep a few tiles on hand to make sure you'll have a match in future
when you may need to make repairs.
If you've been thinking of upgrading or supplementing your heating system
, now is the ideal opportunity to add radiant underfloor heating.
Save money by removing the old floor material yourself. Alternatively,
if it is still in sound condition, ask your tile contractor if it's possible
to have the tiles laid on top.
Think again if you are considering tiling the floor as a DIY project. Cutting
and laying tile is not a simple task, especially because the floor surface
is often uneven. Professional tile contractors have the know-how to produce
a floor that is not only good-looking but also waterproof and slip-resistant. Floor Refinishing & Flooring Installation Vancouver WA
