We plan to reno our 20 years old kitchen. We have decided to install new tile for the kitchen and hallway to the power room. It is about 750 sq ft. What is labour cost to remove old tile and install new one? We were quoted $15 per sq ft. for new installation plus $3 per sq ft to remove old one. It seems too high for me.
Just want to ask, if this is regular cost in GTA for licensed pro?
My name is Mark and I am a team member from Total Tile the cost does seem high as at $15+ we can easily supply you with the tile, labour and installation material.
1$ per foot to remove - $7 for 12"x24" or 8$ for 24"x24" Per Square foot depending what suits your budget.
Thank you for your time.
Installation price will depend on the size of tile and material being used as well as pattern. Basic installation starts @ 5.00/sq.ft and includes thinset, grout and transitions. For Demolition we charge 3.00/sq.ft and that includes garbage bin rental and floor prep.
Hope that helps
There may be some information missing to answer if the quote is too high. Some things that need to be considered; Are the mouldings being removed and re-installed? What underlay is being used? Are the tiles being supplied by you or the contractor? Is there a closet that will also be tiled? Are any cabinets being removed? For sure the toilet has to be.
Removal @ 3/ft2x750+=2250.
Underlay Ditra @4/ft2x750=3000.
Installation @ 7/ft2x750=5250.
Supply tile 12x24 @ 4/ft2x750=3000.
The total cost may seem high, but when you break it down your quote is inline with what I or other contractors would charge.
Also, it is difficult to quote on this without actually seeing what needs to be done.
Hope this helps.
