Hi Kristy,

For residential jobs, many tile contractors, including myself price jobs not just based on square footage but based on the particular job itself. Unlike laminate or hardwood where it's a more straight forward installation, tile installation can require many layers of work. There are also specific standards that must be followed in accordance with the TTMAC which governs professional standards.

If you are looking for an estimate, it's best to have the contractor come and see the job.

Hi Kristy,

For residential work, tiles installers/ contractors, myself including price jobs not only by FT2, but the price changes even by the tiles size and complexity of the work to be done. As mentioned, tile installation can require many layers of work to be complete. There are also specific standards that must be followed in accordance with the TTMAC [Terrazzo, Tile & Marble Association Of Canada] which governs professional standards.

To have a better idea of the cost of your reno, I suggest you contact and make appointments with tiles installers/contractors to see exactly what need to be done and all the details in metter.

Like the other pros stated,

We only price jobs per square foot or per unit for new construction, because we know exactly what to expect.

Hope that helps.

In private jobs there's no average cost since every job is different, depends of tile size, materials to be used, conditions to work, distance and design.

The price can be given by sqft if it is more than 650 sqft in tile installation. Prices change from installer to installer. The better way to get a price is ask for an assessment to get a proper quote. You don't want to get suprised with extra costs.
