As you can see, I am not in your neighbourhoor, but can offer some advice. There is mch more to it than just replacing floor tiles. First question would be ... why? If they are cracked, the issue isn't the tiles, but the movement of the floor below. This is where it can get costly. The subfloor must be solid and level. It should also be 1& 1/4" thick the accomadate the extra weight. The ideal subfloor would have a cement board on it or something similar to provide the strength and surface you need. Short answer, the cost is more than a basic quote, especially if you want it done properly. I also assume it will be a long term investment so, have it done correctly.

Please provide me with the more information on the tiles.

What size tiles and how many sq ft?

We do sell flooring material at our showroom if you would be interested.

Hi My Name is Jorge and I am in the West Coast as you can see and no we don't service your area, perhaps one day, but for now I have to agreed with another replier. It takes more than just removing and installing. What's just as important as having somebody installing the tiles is what you won't see. When a contractor comes to give you an estimate, ask questions and how is he going to deal with the substrate after the tiles are gone. A good contractor will explain the process and will use the best materials available for the job. Don't hire the cheapest or the most expensive, but the one that assures you a long lasting installation and at least a year warranty.
