    Wall and Floor Tiling Job in

    Fancy getting away from the English dreary winter for a week or two?

    We are urgently looking for for a tiler/tilers to re-tile the kitchen at Hotel L'Aigle in the French Alps (125 m2 total area needing tiles)

    We are Snowcoach, an independent family-run company offering skiing holidays to St. Gervais/Megeve and Valmeinier/Valloire in the French Alps staying in Club Hotels. Established in 1978, we have many very loyal clients who return year on year.

    Transport/Travel costs for you and your equipment will be provided as well as accommodation/food during your stay..

    We anticipate the work will take around a week, and are happy to discuss prices (A Ski holiday plus payment is a possibility) with anyone who might be interested.
     


    If you'd like to quote for this tiling job in then please contact the member who posted the job directly. If you'd like to generally ask questions about the job, please feel free to reply to this thread, as the extra details may help others work out whether the job is suitable for them or not.

    TilersForums.co.uk recommends getting three tilers in to quote for all tiling jobs, and to check references from previous customers for each. Then customers need to make their own mind up as to who is best for them.

    32m2 a day, over 10 days, is pushing it for 1 tiler!!

    You definitely need two. What's the access like to the areas needing to be tiled? Are all areas clear of appliances and things? What adhesive and grout is being supplied? What tile types are being fixed? What % is walls and floors? What are the substrates? Does there need to be prep work? Is the background fresh plaster or have tiles been hacked off and left a bit of a mess?

    All questions that'll help find the right tilers. :)

    Thanks for posting here though! :)

    The time frame was 100% an estimate, if more time is needed then that is fine- The job needs to be completed latest first week in December.

    What's the access like to the areas needing to be tiled?

    The area will be cleared before the tiler arrives

    Are all areas clear of appliances and things?
    Yes they would be

    What adhesive and grout is being supplied?

    We would discuss this prior to the tilers arrival and purchase as recommended

    What tile types are being fixed?

    Non- Slip floor tiles approx 100 x 250 and Ceramic wall tiles 200x200

    What % is walls and floors?

    Floor Surface area : 35 Square metres

    Walls Surface area: 82 Square metres


    Does there need to be prep work?

    The area will be fully prepared.

    Is the background fresh plaster or have tiles been hacked off and left a bit of a mess?

    Tiles are yet to be stripped- We can't proceed with stripping until we have a tiler confirmed as the kitchen will have to open either way.

    All questions that'll help find the right tilers. :)

    Thanks for posting here though!
    Thank you for getting back to me!

    :)

    It's a shame it's such short notice. I'm guessing if you don't manage to get somebody and end up running it with the existing tiles, it'll be like Feb or something before another chance is available?

    I think that would be the case yes. Started to receive quotes though, so fingers crossed. Ideally we'd have like to find someone local to the hotel- but that search was fruitless!

    Yep I am in Samoens in the Haute savoie but heading home on Saturday, If I didn't have some work to go back to to, I would jump at the chance.

    The amount of work in the Alps is amazing and it is all quality work from what I have seen.

    Sorry, I don't. All tilers in the Alps appear to be busy ........ after all, this is the busiest period for internal building work, season upcoming and all that.
