Now that the long-awaited house keys are finally in your hands, you can sit back and relax. Well, not until you ensure that you’ve got the best tiling contractor doing the renovation work!

There are many great contractors out there, some available online and others a little more obscure.

In this article, we will cover pricing, services available, specialisation (if any), and reviews, to help you make an informed decision about which tiling contractor you choose to turn to.

When it comes to pricing, it ranges from as low as $4 per square feet to “request for a quote”. This is because getting the tiles done isn’t a grab-and-buy process.

These contractors have to understand what you are looking for before they can advise you on your next steps to achieving your dream home.

After sending out a couple of emails, here’s what I got from a few direct tiling contractors in Singapore.

He had gone miles to make sure that things are on a good track. I will highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a tiler!” – Phyllis Lye

“Reasonable price for repairing a chipped tile and a few hollow tiles. The mechanic has reassessed a few hollow tiles and provided valuable advice not to remove them. This is because the adhesive is still intact and the hollow sound is from the bottom.” – William Ang
