What is the average cost of installing tiles these days (so.cal)?
I live in the Los Angeles area and I have gotten 2 quotes so far. I need tile work done for my Master Bathroom which consist of 56SF of floor tiles and 130SF of wall/tub deck tiles. One quote was $6350 and the other $3800... I'm a little confused on why there is such a huge difference in pricing. Both would require me to have the shower pan hotmopped before they arrive. The higher price will use backboard, while the lower price will be floating the walls. The quotes are to cover all material and labor (except tiles, which I will be buying). Tile sizes are 18x18 floor and 8x12 or 8x10 wall/tub surround. I'm using ceramic tiles. I'm planning on getting a few other quotes, but is this the price range I should expect? Any thoughts?
