Floor Tiling FAQs

Before installing the tile, it’s important to make sure the surface is clean and level. Any existing flooring needs to be removed, and any bumps or holes need to be filled in. It’s also essential to use a moisture barrier, such as a sealant, on concrete floors before tiling. Preparation takes time and requires an ample amount of energy and even expertise. It’s why at Apex, we recommend entrusting your tiling project to experts.
The cost of tiling a standard-sized home in Canberra can vary depending on the size, complexity and type of tile used.

Ceramic tiles installation costs range from $50 per square metre to $100 per square metre plus the added cost of labour, adhesive and other materials. Note that costs vary significantly on the type of tiles used and the job size.

Getting quotes is recommended to ensure you are getting the best value for your money. When allocating a budget to your tiling project it is essential to factor in additional costs such as delivery fees, removal of old tiles (if required), and the cost of grout and sealant.

You should also make sure that the power supply to the area you will be tiling is turned off, and if required, any old floor coverings or tiles have been removed prior to the day of your appointment. If there are any repairs that need to be made before tiling can begin, these should also be completed beforehand.
Finally, you may want to check with your tiler that all the materials necessary for the job are on-site and ready for them to use. This will help ensure that there are no delays in the process.

Choosing the right tiles for your floor can be a difficult decision, as there are many factors to consider.

The type of material you choose will depend largely on the area that is being tiled, as well as your personal preference. For example, porcelain tiles are generally more durable than ceramic tiles and therefore more suitable for areas such as bathrooms or kitchens.

Additionally, the colour and pattern of your tiles should also be taken into account when making your selection. You may want to consider a neutral colour palette so as not to clash with other elements in the room, or you might opt for a bolder design that adds character and interest.

Regardless of choice, it is important to choose high-quality tiles to withstand wear and tear. At Apex Tiling, we can provide further advice on this matter.
