Tile Labor Cost in DFW

2 Replies | Dallas, Texas

Just curious.  Have tile installation costs risen recently?  Haven't had to do ceramic in awhile and just got quoted a bit over 3k labor for appx 275 sq ft of floor, a tub shower,  30" a stand up shower, half wall of one small bathroom (maybe 60ft), and about 18 ln ft of backsplash.  12x24 on walls and floor, 12x12 mosiacs on the backsplash.  And to lay only, cement board is already done.

Doesn't seem California outrageous, but I would have expected 1.5k to 2k.  Unfortunately the tile guy I used last has dropped off the face of the Earth.

Hi @Eric Kephart if this is labor only, I'd say about $5 per sq ft is reasonable. Not sure the total sq ft you have but hopefully this can be a guide for you. If you want my guys to look at it let me know. We own a residential rehab and maintenance company.

 Two things going on here: 1) that quote does feel a bit high, and 2) most skilled trades are in low supply right now in DFW.
