Affordable Tile Installations are out there...
But shopping around is a must. This job was a repeat customer who had the exact same kitchen tiled 2 years ago and had a fire in his home and called to have it tiled again.
All the Hardi board was laid on Tuesday and all the tile laid on Wednesday then grouted today. The total time to install this kitchen was 18 hours at a labor cost of $1475.00.This is a price you will have to really search around to find but a experienced tile guy can get you installed for this cost and make really good pay at the same time.
The materials needed to do this tile installation job were as follows:
- 375 sq ft of tile
- 24 sheets of quarter inch Hardi board
- 12 lbs of 2 inch galvanized roof nails
- 4 - 50lb bags thin set
- 3 -25 lb bags sanded grout
- 1 -500 pc bag of 3\16 spacers
If you need a tile installation in your home be diligent shop around and do your homework to get the best installation at a reasonable cost.
