Are you shopping around for the price to tile a ceramic backsplash?
Typically the cost will be $9 to $48 per square foot, including materials
Cost to tile a ceramic backsplash varies according to:
- Tile quality (there is a huge range of ceramic tiles on
the market, of varying quality and design)
- Complexity of backsplash layout (eg, straight-set vs.
offset or diagonal, inlays, etc.)
- How level your counter or vanity top is
- Desired height and width
The cost to tile a backsplash will usually include the following:
Get the Most for Your Money
- Materials -- Materials include ceramic tiles, thinset,
grout, and caulk for the area where the backsplash meets
- Labor -- Labor cost usually includes both setting the
tile and grouting the backsplash. The project is more
complex than tiling a floor because it involves vertical
installation in a cramped space and the alignment must be
right on, since it will be so visible. Your tile contractor
may also have to move any electrical outlets outward
to accommodate the increased wall thickness.
Install a tile backsplash in both your kitchen and your bathroom
for more than just good looks and resale value. The backsplash
will also protect your walls against moisture that "splashes back"
from the sink.
A tiled backsplash will not go through the same heavy wear and tear
as a tile floor. It's also a much smaller space. So feel free to save
money by installing ceramic tile here that is not top of the line
or by opting to buy discontinued tile at a discount.
Allow at least 24 hours for the thinset to dry before you use the sink
in front of your brand new backsplash. If the installation is in
your kitchen, that means you'll have to nuke a meal or two ... or
eat out! Floor Refinishing & Flooring Installation Vancouver WA
