I know that it is cheaper to get the tiling done after hand over but i am wondering just how much? We will be going for 600 x 600 polished porcelain tiles with approximately 140 Sqm to do. We also understand that you get what you pay for so we don’t necessarily want the cheapest job, We just don’t want to get ripped off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have asked at a couple of Tiling suppliers as I only need some splashbacks tiled about 3msq in 600 x 600 and have been told the following:
Beaumonts at Gawler said a Tiler will charge around $300 for the days work regardless of how much work they do as they charge a daily charge as they need to come back the following day to grout.
Terry's Tiles said the same thing about day rate but they said a Tiler will be around $500 for the day rate.
Apparently it doesn't matter how long the job takes you get charged the day rate. So they can do a couple of jobs in a day and get between $300 and $1000 for the day!!
I haven't spoken to a Tiler myself (as I don't need mine until February next year) so I can only go by what the Tile Suppliers hav told me.

Thanks Jo, We have only today decided to go with the builder. After a lengthy talk with them they decided to come down to a reasonable price. I was hoping this would be the case as now we can move in almost straight away.

Whatever you do please check the tiles before they are laid - our tiles are polished porcelain and have optical hazing which looks awful ....

Best practice is a internal metal angle to join your wall with the cieling and tile on top. My only concern would be movement of house. I would imagine it will crack the grout.
