A tiling project is undoubtedly a vast endeavour to undertake, and once you have chosen the kind of tiles you desire, it’s an ideal time to begin considering how you’ll install them. Many DIY enthusiasts will shoulder the responsibility themselves. However, if you find a tiling job to be tricky or are not confident enough to take up the installation project, it is recommended to hire one of the best tilers in Sydney.

If that sounds vague or unsure whether you will choose the right tiler, read on. Following are a few tips to meet your perfect tiler

  • Trust on personal recommendations
  • We tend to follow advice from friends and family more than any other expert or online. The same applies when it comes to choosing the right tiler for your home.  If some of your close friends or relatives recommend a tiler, it is good to check them out, provided you can see a glimpse of the professional job done at their home by the same company.

    However, that does not mean you will stick to one recommendation. You should always ask other friends too and compare a new tiler against another following the trade-specific review site. 

  • Look at a tradesmen website
  • Online platforms like Rated People, MyBuilder, and Checkatrade offer you an opportunity to check out all kinds of tradesmen from your locality and beyond. Such websites allow you to place your postcode and filter merchants you are looking for. Here you can also see verified and unbiased reviews from customers. These reviews will help you gauge the quality of a tradesman’s work and help you make a more informed decision. 

    These sites also offer you price guides and quotes. You can also message tilers in Sydney directly and make a booking. 

  • Questions to ask
  • If you get a quote from the tiler you contact, you need to ask the following questions- 

  • When can he start?
  • The best tilers are always in demand. So be aware of someone who promises to start right away. On the other hand, if you are in a hurry and your tiler wants you to wait for three months, that is no good. So, ask your tiler and choose an intermediate and suitable time.

  • How long will the project take?
  • Tiling jobs can cause a lot of disturbance to your daily life schedule- especially if it’s a bathroom or kitchen project. So, ask for a timescale of completion and inquire whether the tiler will be working alone or as a team.

  • What does the quote consist of?
  • Nobody likes to get fooled by hidden costs. So, it’s essential to learn what you are paying before the tiler starts the job. Ask us if you can supply any material, and check if you need to bear any delivery charge, and most importantly, whether your quote includes VAT. 

Following the above steps will ensure you end up getting a reliable tiler. However, if you are still unsure, you can contact Shine Star Tiling Specialist, a house of good tilers in Sydney.
