Whether you are remodeling a kitchen or a bathroom, tile is a commonly used material throughout the home. As with most home improvement jobs, the labor is the most expensive part of installing tile. So when you are weighing your options for material choices, it is good to know what the average cost would be. There are several variables which could affect the overall cost, such as whether the existing floor needs to be ripped up, whether new backer board needs to be installed, etc.
So to give you a better idea of what costs you can expect, here is an easy to read chart showing you national averages for having new tile installed. Over the next couple of weeks we are going to start sharing other common home improvement projects and what the average costs will be. This will help you determine whether it is something that you would like to tackle on your own, or just hire a contractor. Remember, these are national averages so actual cost may vary by region (get multiple quotes before choosing a contractor).
