How much do tilers charge in 2019?
Tiling is one of the most versatile ways of decorating, and has been for centuries. And tiles are amongst incredibly popular and practical for decorating bathrooms. However, tiling yourself can be a highly technical and difficult challenge. So, people often prefer to get a professional tiler in.
How much a tiler charges will vary from job to job, often dependent on the size of the bathroom or space being tiled – and will also factor in things such as whether they’re required to tile a floor, walls or a combination of both. On top of this you have the usual considerations, such as where you live and how urgently you need the work doing.
One thing you can definitely take care of yourself before booking a tiler is choosing your tiles. We’ve written before about the benefits of mosaic tiling.
