    Hi Guys, Just finished a 135m floor for a shop fitting company I do work for , have done loads of floors for them over the years, This one the client wanted done diagonally 30x 30 porcelain . Would you normally charge more for this .Not wanting to discuss figures obviously , just checking if anyone charges more for diagonal tiling... Thanx

    Me too. Though on domestics I try and dissuade the customer by saying something like 'really, I've not done it that way for ages, it's a bit old fashioned'. It usually puts them off and I don't have to mess about with tricky cuts into rooms off a hallway and the like.

    Yes it’s a lot more work. Maybe not so much in the middle of a large area but on a domestic it’s probably 40% more work

    Thanx guys for replies, probably stick with my rate for this one , but told contractor more for any future diagonal floors.... For the record the floor was black & white chequer board with black grout.......Couldn't,t talk client out of it, she was determined to get it this way......

    On a large floor no. But you might get a little more on 135 mt floor.
