If a contractor quotes $7/sq' for tiling, is that including everything or just labour. Like is it 7/sq' plus tile cost.
There are so many variables to consider. $7/sq ft is not that unresaonable for a skilled tiler to set and finish your flooring job. Without knowing the specs of the job its hard to give an answer. Your tile could be anywhere from $.50c a sqft to $100/sqft, so likely its only labour. Ask the questions you need!
Unless it is specified "tiles included" , it means only labour. So when hiring a tile setter ask what's included? what about thin set, grout, primers, etc etc. Be clear of what to expect before the job starts.
I hope it helps.

As you have read from all the other posts, it is a very good chance it is labour and maybe prep only. As Paul stated $7.00 is on the high side but price is really determined on size of tile and how many sqft there are. I guy isn't coming to your house for $4.00 sqft if you only need a 50sqft entrance done.
