So, you're done everything in your power to find a reputable tiling company, but you are not sure if you're getting the best price. Do not feel guilty about looking into a competitor or negotiation! Feeling uncertain is very common, and there is nothing wrong with wanting the best bang for your buck.
No need to feel intimidated just because you are not an expert either. You really do not need to have a thorough understanding of the work process to find the best price for the installation of tile, but you need to know the market a little. Below you will find the basics of planning and executing best-price strategy for tile installation projects.
Do a web search for the best tiling experts in Perth, and be sure to specify a local search with the subdivision or town name that is written after the 'tile installation'. If you already know that you're looking for the best price on the installation of the tiles in the pasture, you do not want to have to root through the east coast companies for general pricing research. Quotes will be completely different in the two locations. Always research locally.
On that note, be sure to get several quotes from different local installation companies to get a feel for what the current price range is. Ask how much your neighbours have paid for the installation of their tiles. Tiling is a competitive market, and they may have a line on a good deal.
You may not have the exact same space or work, but they might be able to tell you that their installation price paid per square foot, which will provide a comparison of apples-to-apples. Also, research the best price for a particular type of tile you want to install.
