Wall Tiling & Floor Tiling Services in Hobart
Here is a headstart on the wall & floor tiling services we offer for homes and businesses in Hobart, Tasmania. Our skilled professionals are experts in handling different tiling materials like ceramics, porcelains, mosaics, marble, natural stone, and terracotta tiles. Some vital differences between these two tile types that our personnel are expert handlers in are:
Tile Selection: Wall tiles are generally lighter and thinner than floor tiles. They are designed primarily for aesthetics and may not be as durable as floor tiles. Wall tiles come in different colours, patterns, and styles to enhance the visual appeal of walls. However, floor tiles are built for durability and wear resistance. They are thicker and heavier than wall tiles and can withstand foot traffic and heavy loads. Floor tiles come in different textures and finishes to provide traction and to prevent slipping.
Tile Installation: Installing wall tiles is simpler than floor tiles. Wall tiles are adhered to vertical surfaces with adhesive, and gravity helps hold them in place during installation. But floor tiles require a more complex installation process, including proper levelling, subfloor preparation, and mortar or adhesive that can withstand the stresses of foot traffic.
Durability: Wall tiles do not undergo the same level of wear and tear as floor tiles. They aren’t meant to support heavy loads, and their glaze may not be as scratch-resistant as floor tiles. Floor tiles, however, are designed to be highly durable, resistant to abrasion, and capable of withstanding heavy foot traffic. They are less likely to chip or crack under pressure.
Slip Resistance: Slip resistance is not a primary concern for wall tiles since they are installed in vertical positions where slipping is not an issue. However, floor tiles must meet specific slip resistance standards to ensure safety, especially in wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens.
Grout Joints: Grout joints between wall tiles are thinner and less pronounced, focusing on beauty and easy cleaning. But, grout joints for floor tiles are wider and serve a dual purpose: aesthetics and helping to maintain a level surface for stability.
Maintenance: Wall tiles are relatively easy to clean and maintain, primarily requiring routine cleaning to keep them looking new. Floor tiles, on the other hand, are subject to wear and tear. So these tiles need frequent cleaning and maintenance, including sealing the grout lines to prevent staining.

Hobart Tilers can provide an entire gamut of tiling services to augment the wall and floor tiling services offered to customers, these include:
Tile Resurfacing: Also known as tile re-glazing or tile refinishing. It’s a process to restore the appearance of existing tiles, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, without the need for complete tile replacement. Tile resurfacing is budget-friendly compared to tile replacement. It eliminates the need to purchase new tiles and eliminates labour costs for removal and installation.
Tile Removal: Helps remove existing tiles from floors, walls, and exterior surfaces, thus preparing for new tile installations. Our trained personnel will use different methods for tile removal. Tiles can be removed manually using tools like chisels and hammers or with mechanical tools like jackhammers, tile scrapers, and floor grinders. Specialised tools like “tile poppers” can be used to effectively remove tiles from floors without damaging the underlying substrate. It works by breaking the bond between the tiles and the underlying surface reducing tile damage.
Tile Restoration: It includes rejuvenating and refurbishing existing tiles to bring them back to their original or improved condition. Our skilled team will first clean the tiles to remove dirt, grime, stains, and construction waste. High-pressure cleaning effectively cleans tile surfaces, ready for the next level of repairs. Any chipped, cracked, or broken tiles are repaired or replaced during restoration. Damaged or discoloured grout is repaired or replaced as the next step. A high-quality sealant is applied that repels moisture to prevent stains and makes tiles easier to clean.
