An outdoor tiling service costs approximately $45/m2. Rates can go higher or lower based on a number of factors such as the scope of the job and the materials used. A small outdoor tiling project can go for as low as $40/m2, while a tiling job that requires full customisation can cost as much as $60/m2.
The cost of outdoor tiling projects varies depending on the material used, according to Tommy of Mitie Tiling. If you have a 10m2 outdoor area, laying ceramic tiles can cost about $320. However, if you prefer porcelain tiles, get ready to spend around $450 for the job. Wood-like tiles are even more expensive; tiling an outdoor area with this material can reach approximately $600.
Sue paid a professional tiler $600 to work on the flooring of her 14m2 outdoor area in her New South Wales property. She had the materials on hand, so the cost was for the labour only.
Factors that affect outdoor tiling rates
When figuring out the cost of a tiling job, tilers take a number of factors into consideration. One is the type of tile needed. To get a ballpark figure of how much you will spend, decide on the type and brand of tile that you want and include the floor area when asking for a quote. That way, the tiler can estimate the amount of materials needed to complete the project.
Another factor is labour cost, which basically depends on the amount of work required to finish the project. An outdoor tiling job that requires only one kind of tile will cost less compared to a tiling job that involves tiles of different patterns.
Additionally, a job that needs significant drainage planning to avoid rain overflow will definitely cost more than a standard installation. Tilers who are working on overtime or on a strict deadline may also charge a premium rate for their services.
