I have a 32x32 shower to tile 3 walls, floor and ceiling. What's the going rate around Hamilton?

Hi Mark,

for your project you are looking close to $ 1500/1700, assuming all ready to tile, non prep work to be done

HI Mark.

You haven't given enough information to give an accurate quote in your tile installation. Some information that is needed; Is there demolition work to be done? Is the floor being re-tiled with a tiled curb? Or is an acrylic shower tray being installed? In either case, that will mean there will be drain work. Do the walls need wall panels and waterproofing? (Schluter or Wedi). Are you supplying the tiles? If all that needs to be done, you are looking at $3,000 and up for tiling the floor, walls & ceiling and for drain installation. That's for around York Region. Also, some other considerations would be; if the faucet needs to be replaced. Is there a light in the shower? Are you installing glass doors or shower curtain?

Best is to get a couple of contractors come out and give you a quote.

Hope this helps.

If I have done my math correctly you have 70 Sq.ft of tile to install. Here in the lower Mainland/Vancouver area I charge 10$ a sq. foot this includes the cost of mortar and grout.

So your looking at 700$ not including the cost of the tile. Hope this helps.
