"We had loose and cracked ceramic tiles which needed to be fixed and tiles replaced. Project went well but a slight misunderstanding while he did a nice job with the grout between the tiles we also wanted along the edges too but he applied caulking instead so a follow up will be needed to do that."

"Brian Terry repaired a double pane window that had accumulated moisture inside the window. When he came back to install the repaired window my wife noticed a fly imbedded inside the window. Brian told us that he guaranteed his work unconditionally and took the window back to be replaced again. I think that Brian's work ethic is refreshing and, sadly, unusual these days. We will certainly call him again when the next problem arises. "

Ideas & Inspiration from Boston Tile Contractors


Boston Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is a great fit in any home, any room, and for just about any application. Why? Because Boston ceramic tile is not a one size fits all proposition. Far from it, ceramic tile comes in about as many forms, designs, and styles as there are colleges and universities in Beantown. In fact, there are so many possibilities with ceramic tile that choosing the right fit for you and your home can be downright overwhelming. Not to worry. Take a deep breath, relax, and read on for some easy strategies to help you narrow your tile options down to the perfect fit.

Tile Costs While the cost effectiveness of ceramic tile is probably one of the reasons you're considering this material in the first place, it still pays to know what kind of costs you're likely to face so you can budget accordingly. Based on information HomeAdvisor collects from homeowners who utilize our contractor referral services, the average cost of a ceramic tile installation in Boston runs about $1,200, though we've been party to jobs that ran as much as $3,500, and others that cost as little as $450. Your choice of tile is the single biggest determining factor when it comes to cost, as ceramic tile can run anywhere from $5 to $10 per square foot for generic, mass-produced tile, up to ten times that much for custom-made, hand-painted varieties. Installation usually runs in the $5 to $10 per square foot range, though the more intricate your tiling project and design, the more you should expect to spend.

Don't Choose Based on First Impressions Not surprisingly, many homeowners in the Greater Boston area see a tile product, fall in love with it, and then start brainstorming where they can work it into their home. If you want ceramic tile in Boston that functions well and looks great, however, you're better off doing it the other way around. Identify the room you want to install tile in first, as well as a specific application, and that will help you to narrow the field and find a quicker (and better) match. Take a kitchen backsplash, for example. It needs to be waterproof, attractive, and the relatively small area you're dealing with means you can opt for more expensive tiles than you might choose for a larger area such as installing Boston ceramic floor tile in the master bathroom. You'll still have a wide range of tiles to choose from, but based on that criterion alone, a glazed, decorative, hand-painted ceramic tile might be the perfect fit.

Tile is a Part of Larger Overall Home Design Making sure your tile fits into your home's overall design is another reason to resist the urge to choose a tile based solely on first impressions. Southwestern saltillo tile is going to look pretty out of place in a downtown loft, the retro look of subway tile in your bath won't exactly meld with a home otherwise decorated in natural stone tile, and ceramics resembling polished marble probably aren't the best choice of kitchen floor tile in Boston if you've got laminate countertops and stock cabinetry (consider yourself warned: if your floor outshines the rest of the space, it will only lead to a full kitchen remodel in the not so distant future!). Instead, start by taking an inventory of your home's current design, and let that guide you towards ceramic tile that will complement, rather than clash with, the rest of your home.

Get to Know Individual Properties of Ceramic Tile Finally, it's important to realize that the wide range of ceramic tile in Boston means that you need to take into account each tile's strengths and weaknesses before taking the plunge. That tumbled stone look might seem like the perfect fit for your covered, backyard patio, but if it's a low-density tile product that absorbs water, it won't last a single Boston winter before freeze and thaw cycles tear it apart. And while terra cotta in the kitchen might seem like a great way to create a warm, pastoral feel, it won't take long before you're more focused on all the stains it soaks up than the tile itself. Educate yourself on tile densities, different glazes, sealing options, and stain and water resistance levels (or lack of them), so that your new tile lives up to your expectations and doesn't let you down.

Talking to a tile retailer or tile installer who knows their stuff is your best resource for getting the right tile for you, your home, and your specific project. Whether you do it yourself, or hire the job out, talking to an expert in tile installation and design is the best way to ensure your ceramic tile in Boston isn't just good looking, but a good fit, as well.
