Tiling

Post by shiv » Tue May 16, 2006 9:59 pm

Anyone got any tiling done yet? If so, how much did it cost? I know someone in Castlemoyne who had to pay over €1500 for tiling for a 3 bed house, which seems pretty steep. I definitely hadn't budgeted for that much!

Tiler

Post by tomf » Wed Aug 16, 2006 10:50 pm

Hi,

Is anyone a tiler here? OR does anyone know a tiler.

I have 17 sq meter of tiles that need to be laid prior to the wood floors going in.

SO, not only do I need a god tiler but, also, one that could do the job in next 10 days.

Long shot I know !!

Tiler in Samson's

Post by gqma0 » Thu Aug 17, 2006 8:07 am

Hi Tomf,

Our neighboors are tilers. I'll ask Paul but I don't know his availability.

I'm on vacation this evening leaving tomorrow morning to France. PM me your mobile phone and I'll drop them a note.

Cheers
Gaetan

Graham from Home Design (web-sponsor) recommended a tiler for me that he always uses.
I rang him on a Thursday and he did my floors (kitchen/dinning room & 3 bathrooms) on the following Monday & Tuesday. He did an excellent job.
His details are - Simon - 0860635412.

The best thing about Graham is that he's fast and he has the best quotes so far.

Tiler --Sorted

Post by tomf » Thu Aug 17, 2006 10:35 pm

Hi

Tried Simon for tiling but, he is backed up and cannot do tiling for about 10 days.

So, I needed to do tiling on kitchen and bathroom floors before the wooden floor go in rest of apartment -- don't even attempt to do tiles AFTER wooden floors.

Eventually between Graham and myself we found a tiler and we meet tomorrow. I'll see his work and, if satisfied, I will post his details here for other people.

Thanks to Graham again.

Oh, good tilers are like hens teeth and unless very experienced I would not attempt tiling myself. For 25 Euro a sq meter go get a good pro to do it. Remmeber, you will have to look at your handiwork for the next few years.

I have no problem doing anything electrical; electronic or computer based but, tiling and plumbing are a mystery to me.

Cost of Fitting

Post by tomf » Tue Aug 22, 2006 7:51 pm

Someone asked somewhere about the cost of getting carpets and tiles and floors fitted.

I can only tell you my case. I am getting all the apartment done in one go.
Graham and his team are doing wooden floors and carpets. I have a tiler in doing the kitchen/bathrooms.

It is costing me 1800 Euro for the fitting of a 110 sq meter apartment.

That works out about 16.50 Euro/sq meter for professional fitting.

I think it is good value. I'll have to look at it for a long time and it is worth it to me.

Some of the tiling was already done, so, I suppose in reality, it worked out about 20 Euro a sqare meter average on tiles and carpet and wooden floors

I am taking it easy on furniture ( I have to - money ran out !!). I am lucky to be able to add to the furniture over time.
So far it is just the basics in beds/table/chairs/ sofa.

That will do for now.
Need to wait for the small SSIA next year before I get the rest.
Tom

Thanks Tom for that info it is really useful. Like yourself we will be getting carpets, floors and tilng done as priority and then adding furniture gradually over time.

Tiler

Post by tomf » Mon Aug 28, 2006 8:37 am

Hi,

I came back from holiday and had all tiled.

Paul, my tiler is a young guy but, came recommended. I can only say he did an excellent job on the tiling.
He even did a good job on the clean up.
His quality of tiling is excellent and he has an eye for a straight line !!!

You can call him on his mobile at 087-767-1875
