Tilers in Indore
Being the most modern and populated city of Madhya Pradesh, Indore has an eclectic mix of elegant historical buildings next to skyscrapers with glass facades. Tilers also have a long association with the city and the evidence is visible in its temples like the enchanting Kanch Ka Mandir decorated with glass and mosaic tiles. Workmanship of Indore tillers is also visible in the beautifully crafted halls, corridors and facades of Holkar Palace built way back in the 18th century. If you are a newcomer to the city and looking to purchase an apartment, rest assured that most will come fitted with tiles on the floor and on the walls of bathroom but if you are renovating and refurbishing bathroom and kitchen walls or floor tiles then you may have to find a tiler skilled enough to do the job.
How to hire a tiling contractor in Indore
Even the tiniest flaw while placing tiles on the floor or wall can make the entire exercise futile and make the layout an eyesore. Fixing an erroneous tiling job is messy, expensive and sheer waste of time and effort as sometimes water can seep through the grout and ruin finished walls and wiring within them.
Browse tile supplier stores – Instead of browsing through tile supplier listing in the local yellow pages just visit tile sales outlets in your immediate neighborhood as these people would be in touch with small and large tiling contractors that buy from them. Whether you are looking for a small or large tiling job this place is your best bet to get an experienced tiler in Indore that would be able to understand your needs. Sometimes large contractors politely decline small broken tile replacement jobs but then you can get verified professionals from here that are likely to be reliable too.
Check for work quality – If any friend, neighbor or colleague is getting any kind of tiling work done in kitchen, floor or bathroom take a short trip to the venue to gauge their work quality. Focus on things like spacing consistency between tiles, balanced layout and presence of grout around the trims and corners. If tiles are not tucked below door jambs and are instead butted against the rim or they are aligned neatly against the wall they look ugly. Lopsided work standards like cutting tiles at work-area and filling the house with dust and not covering other appliances in the work area with tape should send warning signals about work quality of the tiler.
Selecting a tiler based on estimate
Get precise estimate about how many tiles will be required for floor, wall or backsplash if the work is being done in the kitchen. Unless you are opting for some artistic pattern let it remain as simple as possible and ask for drawings about how the place will look after the job is done so that both of you are on the same page. The tiler may ask you purchase tiles yourself if you feel that tile price estimate is on the higher side. Take a guarantee that your equipment and appliances will be replaced if broken or damaged. Do not appoint a tiler that does not provide time frame for work completion along with guarantee of your property and details of approx. number of tiles that would be required for the project.
How to choose the best tiles for floor and walls
With the wide variety of tile options available in the market it becomes a little confusing sometimes to select the best ones for your home.

How to calculate the cost of wall and floor tiling of your Indore house
Tiles across India sold through dealers or distributors are sold in standard boxes at Rs/sq ft and while floor tiles are 10mm thick as they have to withstand more pressure than wall tiles so they cost around Rs. 10-15 more than wall tiles which are just 6-7 mm thick. Cost of tiles start from Rs. 60 each and can go upwards to Rs. 200 as their cost varies according to size, finish, design and brand.
Cost of tiling a floor or wall will include labor, cost of the tiles and cleaning and grouting. So if you are planning to use wall tiles sized about 24” * 18” the total cost of tiling one square foot of wall will cost you around Rs. 150 – 155 per square which is inclusive of tile cost, labor, cement and cleaning and grouting. If the tiles are bigger than standard 24” * 18” then the cost could go up by nearly Rs.80 - 90 per square feet as the tiles are expensive and labor cost to install them also requires experienced tilers that charge more.
