Before you hire a tile installer, make sure he or she can give you a good answer to the following questions:

  • What TCNA method they will use to install your tile? (Tile Council of North America Handbook clarifies and standardizes installation specifications for tile.)
  • Where the movement joints will be located and what will they be made of?
  • What is the span of the joists? (Can the floor carry the weight of tile without excessive deflection?)
  • What level of service and warranty are provided on the labor and products?
  • Will you need a vapor barrier? Crack isolation? Additional waterproofing?
  • What experience they have with the setting materials? What advantages these materials offer?
  • How they keep up with the latest industry advances?
  • What associations do they participate in?
