“Robert and his team fitted a new bathroom and combi boiler for us a month ago: everything is working very well and looks great. Before the job started, Robert took time to explain the detail to help us make decisions and he spent time shopping around to get us a good price on all of the fittings that were used. Robert completed the job on time and within budget. He was diligent and very pleasant to deal with: I recommend his services highly.”

“Very helpful indeed. Received a prompt response, and I received friendly, helpful, expert advice over the phone before a callout was arranged for the next day. In the event, this wasn't needed, as a plumber friend was able to fix the problem, however I will definitely call for any future jobs.”

Answers:

In theory it is ok to tile over existing tiles, but it very much depends on the type of background wall and the weight of the tiles. personally i would never tile over tiles as there are too many variables.
the existing tiles need to be sound and level and the weight needs to be accounted for. if it's a block or brick wall this will have a maximum weight holding capacity and if the wall was plastered before tiling then the tiles will only be stuck to the plaster and not the wall itself.
if the walls are plasterboard then this too has a maximum holding weight. so you need to find out the weight of your tiles per sm and check if this is ok with the type of wall the tiles are stuck to
another factor is space, if people just tile over tiles then you end up loosing space all round and this can soon add up!
hope this helps
If you agree a day rate with a tradesman purely for labour then it should be for an anticipated amount of days and for a finite amount of work.
most problems occur when there is nothing in writing, so the tradesman assumes they are doing x amount of work and the client assumes they are getting y amount of work done.
if you agree to supply all materials then you really do have to supply a wide range of materials from screws, to silicone, to adhesive, to timber to plumbing fittings. these things can all add up, but the tradesman should not be expected to pay for these materials from their wages. the same goes for parking etc.
we do approx 10 bathrooms a year and most bathrooms take us 3 weeks to complete. i would be onsite virtually every day and do most of the plumbing and carpentry myself and i would have the help of a labourer for at least a week and a tiler for about a week. we do not work weekends and we only stay late (after 5pm) if there are issues to resolve.
hope this helps.
