These rates typically include labour and basic materials such as glue or grout but generally don’t include the cost of tiles. However, tilers often have relationships with suppliers so can negotiate better prices on tiles than customers can through normal retail channels.
In most cases, the cost of sealing/waterproofing and polishing the tiles isn’t included in the quote price either. The preparation of the floor bedding is also an optional extra, and if required a tiler can normally do this at a rate of around $45 per square metre.
The average job price is $3,419. In addition to the size of the job, the size of the tiles themselves can often affect the cost of the quote. Tilers will generally charge more to lay small mosaics as this can be extremely time consuming due to their delicate nature.
