    Hi fellow tilers!
    Just new on here so please be kind :)
    Ive not been tiling for around 7 years and have decided to bring the tools back out and start working for myself.
    Ive never worked for myself before so im looking for some tips on getting started (advertising, pricing etc)
    I live just outside Glasgow.

    Hello Jamie, pricing depends on areas.
    Use yellow pages :D

    Pricing will come down to a few factors /substrate/tile or stone / waterproofing / and distance / and time /its a hard one to give a ball park figure but can grantee you will not get rich doing tiling all comes down to job satisfaction

    price per m2 depends on a lot of factors Jamie, ie what you're tiling?, the prep required?, is it ceramic, porcelain, or stone? a lot of factors to consider but as a rule of thumb weigh up the overheads then calculate how many days a job will take you to complete and work that into the m2 that needs to be covered. But take each job on it's merit and never give a ball park figure over the phone without having a site visit;)

    pricing depends on how much you want to earn, how much you need to earn and how much you can afford not to earn and average it out ;)
