Thats why I made sure to include my location. It was $20/hr for the backsplash and $30/hr for the flooring. Both guys had "full time" tile jobs and did mine after hours.Thank's Hammerlane---
This is a good example of why pricing questions seldom work well----
The labor rate shown in that example is only $25.00 per hour,including all overhead and profit
Both guys were not what I would consider handymen doing tile work. Both guys are union tile workers that did my jobs between union jobs. Backsplash guy I have known for 20 years and thats all he does is tile. He got too busy after the backsplash so I had to find someone else to do floor tile.Folks, those prices Hammerilane mentioned are ridiculously too low for anyone except a handyman working under the table for cash.
Yes two days, a Wednesday then a Saturday. He didnt have to look at job. He's the one I've known for 20 years so I emailed him photos. I picked up all materials. He had his tools in his truck already both days after his day job.Backsplash for $220 is nuts. 36 sq. ft. is not a small backsplash, but regardless, to do the job right he had to be there for parts of 2 days not to mention the time to look at the job in the first place and time to pick up any materials or tools.
Installer knew I was supplying all material.Same with the floor, too low by at least $600, probably more. Plus the installer made no profit on the materials.
That would depend on his total income/ profit/loss for the entire year.I wonder how much taxes he paid on this?
ARe you referring to the edge of the step where there is no nosing? I know some of the thinset is oozing out and not all the way to the edge and could of been a little more even but all I know is it has been 19 months and not a crack anywhere in the grout or field tiles for the floor. Can't say as much for our up bathroom where the grout is cracking in spots. Must of been a handyman who did the up bathroom.I saw that pic of the step before, and chose not to mention how bad it looks thinking it was a DIY job. But if you paid someone, should have been done right, not like that
