Description of service

$1800 was the total cost to have a sub-contractor come out and replace the tile in one bathroom. This also included supplies such as middle of the line tile grout, floor sealant, mortar and labor. The tile cost about $1200. This project was for a medium sized master bathroom including floor, bathtub, counter tops and back splash. The project took about 3 weeks from beginning quote to final sealing of the floors. You know contractors, so it took 1 week longer than they promised.


Review of Service

This company that I used is a very small local shop that specializes in custom tile work. This was definitely a custom job. At least too custom for me to try. The workers were all fairly courteous that my wife and two kids were home at the time they were working since it was summer vacation. They always wiped their feet which is a big deal when they are walking in and out the door to cut tile in the garage. I kind of monitored the progress to make sure that it went as planned since you never know, but it went great besides the extra week it took them, but it wasn't the end of the world. We just used the other bathroom for the time.


Tips

Shop around for tile, never let the contractor just pick it out, we found a great mid-priced tile that look much more expensive than it actually was. I even got in on sale at the store so I saved a few bucks there. Who knows how it would have gone had I not been home to monitor, but I'll just assume it would still have gone smoothly.
