1. If i need reliable and quality --> in terms of scratch-resistant and crack-resistant, is Niro tile still a good choice ?

2. How about Ceramic tile ?

3. Are there any types of tiles that are like above quality i mentioned, and is in relatively good price ?

4. Any sample pic of the types of tiles u guys mentioned here ?


thx.

I was quoted RM3 psf, big project RM1.50-2.00 psf for tiles, Marble specialist RM8-10 psf. You need to hack off the old cement, otherwise the tiles wont stick well. That will cost u extra. 4inches more likely, unless u putting a safe under ur floor!

Water proofing treatment is only necessary for shower/bath area 2nd storey. It's also necessary for marbles, as water from ground may seep through the marbles, causing ugly 'water marks' on your marbles. The only way to treat the 'water marks' is to hack the marble and rewater proofing.

Scratch resistant and crack resistant, u should go for porcelain tile. Porcelain is a denser material, it is stronger than its ceramic counterpart. For normal use, even ceramic tile should be sufficient.

RM3 is only the labour of putting in the tile. Cement and sand extra. Hacking extra. You may consider 'glueing' the new tile on top of the old tiles, pay more for special cement, the contractor called it 'cement gum/glue', but u save on the hacking part, and the cleaning up. This way is only workable, if the floor clearing for the door is big enough etc.

The cost of tiles vary, from less than RM1 to more than RM10 psf. Go to the tile shop, choose what u like and work from there. Estimate RM3 for labour. Cement and sand are not expensive. Dont forget to estimate for the wall tile in the bathroom and kitchen etc.

you just buy the water proof from hardware shop.. about Rm 30-50 depends on quality for one gallon.. and ask the contractor to pour it in the cement mixer... that is the extra effort... pour it in mixer and mix with cement... if he charge you extra, then he is slaughtering you

as i mentioned, the difference is in the finishings, especially those wall edges, window edges, etc ....
sometimes even though they say work done by chinese worker, they will send those young cikus who are not really experienced.

sorry i'm noob in these things ...
-so roughly how many sq ft of flooring can the 1 gallon water proof material cover ?

-do we ask the contractor to pour in ALL the water proof material into their cement mixer ? Will they put in the right quantity of cement mixer, or will some of them try to cut down their cement ?

Aiyah, save all the worries, just ask the professionals to do it, and ask for warranty. If you do it yourself, save a few bucks but is it worth it? If not done properly you have to rehack the whole place...

I got quote from contractor RM2.80 per square feet for floor tiling. previously he has calculated the price and said it include everything sand and cement. however suddenly he said, need to increase the price to RM6 per square feet because I'm using 2 X 2 (or larger tiles) whereas he quote based in 1 X 1 (I buy tiles myself).

Is the labour cost difference between larger and small tiles? I'm arguing that larger tiles meaning that less tiles and less work. he said need to use gum simen whereas before this he said all floor tiles need to use that cement.

Hi Newbie99,

What do you really mean by "if the floor clearing for the door is big enough"? Actually I did asked a few tiles shop about this method but most of them dont recommend bcos afraid the workmanship problem, possibly uneven tiles.

Do you have any idea how much it cost for such method? I dont want to hack and spend so much $ on hacking and disposing rubbish. Save the world... thumbup.gif

Look fwd to your reply. THanks!

Some of you need to realize that 2x2 tiles = 4 square feet.

If your contractor is charging $6 for every 4 square feet you are still getting a good deal.

However, to my knowledge, tiling price per square feet shoud be around $3 to $3.50. This is labor+filling+grouting done by the contractor. Pay anyting less than $3 and I can guarantee you that you get a shit job done. A lot of contractor are 'good' at doing their job but not good at contrlling their cost. If you manage to get a darn low price for renovation be prepared to have the contractor lari when he realizes he did some bad number-crunching.

Water-proofing is done on your slab not on your tiles. This is done usually in bathroom so water does not seep into adjacent rooms causing your wooden floor/skirting to rot over time.

Hi all,

What is a reasonable quotation for tiling work psf ?

My floor already got existing tiles and the guy says need to hack till 4 feet (or is it 4 inch, not sure) deep for proper tiling

My tile size is 2x2

He will provide cement & sand (tiles i provide)

Thanks

Personally, a tiler could get about 200-300 sq ft of work done per day per person. The salary of a tiler depends on his experience and workmanship. And usually should not be more than RM100 a day. So you work the maths out. Of course that is without material pricing. For 2x2 it is a lot more difficult and needs better skilled tiler. Wall tiles are quite easy to do and an experienced tiler can get more than 300 sq ft work done per day. But market rate should start from RM2 per sq ft and depends on the size of the work.

Water proofing is needed only for toilets of high rise and perhaps marble tilings. No point water proofing your entire house/apartment as you generally do not flood those areas.

I got quote from contractor RM2.80 per square feet for floor tiling. previously he has calculated the price and said it include everything sand and cement. however suddenly he said, need to increase the price to RM6 per square feet because I'm using 2 X 2 (or larger tiles) whereas he quote based in 1 X 1 (I buy tiles myself).

Is the labour cost difference between larger and small tiles? I'm arguing that larger tiles meaning that less tiles and less work. he said need to use gum simen whereas before this he said all floor tiles need to use that cement.

On this I have been quoted for MYR1.5 per sq ft for hacking, MYR 5 per sq ft installing tiles (2x2) and MYR 3.5 per sq ft installing tiles (1x2)
Meaning here is MYR 20 for 1 tile (2x2). included are cement, sand and rubbish management.

What do you think guys? Please feedback for me. Really appreciate some info on this;

Thanks in advance.
