A wall and floor tiler installs and repairs wall and floor coverings for homeowners and for public sector and commercial organisations including schools, universities, housing associations, landlords, letting agents and property developers. In addition to basic tiling work, some tilers carry out more specialist work including period/restoration tiling, wet-room installation, underfloor heating installation and swimming pool tiling. Many tilers work on a subcontract basis for construction firms, home furnishing retailers and other traders such as plumbers and kitchen and bathroom fitters.
