What To Expect From Our Lehi Tile Installation Service

At Mr. Handyman of Lehi, Provo and Spanish Fork, we’re not just concerned with getting your floor installation done according to the highest standards for quality—though this is important, too—but also with making sure your experience with us meets or even exceeds your expectations throughout every stage of the process.

Your tile installation service begins with a phone call or service information request submission, at which point our talented team of flooring experts will gather information on your project details. When it comes to tile installation, Lehi, UT clients typically ask us to install floor tiles or wall tiles that they have already purchased (or plan to purchase) themselves. We can install all types of tile, including:

  • Ceramic
  • Porcelain
  • Natural stone
  • Cork
  • Glass
  • And more!

If you need advice on purchasing material, including how to calculate the square footage of your space to determine how much material you need or any other bathroom remodel design advice, our experts will be more than happy to lend their recommendations based on their wealth of experience. We suggest ordering more material than you think you’ll need, as you may find yourself with broken tiles that need replacement in the future. It’s always a good idea to have some extras on hand!

After discussing the basics of your project, we’ll arrange a day and time for your service appointment, based on your availability. Our team of handyman experts will arrive at your property on time for your scheduled appointment. All of our service technicians have company vehicles filled with the tools and supplies needed to get the job done right.

Upon arrival, your flooring experts will introduce themselves to you, explain what they’re there to do and ask for approval to get started. They’ll also put on disposable boots before entering your home to ensure that your floors are protected. Once you give them the go ahead, they’ll get started on your Lehi tile installation service. Though the installation process will vary slightly depending on the room and type of material, your service professionals will follow these general steps:

  1. Flooring preparation: Unless you’re having flooring installed in a new build for the first time, you’ll likely need your existing flooring removed first. We can remove and dispose of your old flooring, whether it’s tile, linoleum or laminate.

  2. Subfloor preparation: Next, we’ll clean and inspect your subfloor. If it’s uneven, we’ll use a leveling compound to correct it. We’ll also lay an underlayment if necessary.

  3. Application of thinset: This is the adhesive solution that will adhere your tiles to the floor. There are different types of thinset available, depending on whether or not a tile membrane is being used or the tiles will be applied to a cement backer board. We’ll mix up the thinset mortar, making sure to mix it thoroughly to eliminate air pockets, and spread it using a notched edge trowel.

  4. Installation of tile: Using tile spacers, we’ll lay the tiles evenly across the thinset. Our team has the experience necessary to ensure that the tiles are completely even. As we go, we’ll use a damp sponge to remove any thinset that ends up on the tile surface. We will also cut the tile as needed around fixtures.

  5. Application of grout: Once the thinset has cured for 24 hours, we’ll remove the spacers and apply grout using a rubber float. A damp sponge will again be used to smooth the grout lines and wipe any excess grout off the tile surface.

  6. Finishing touches: When the grout has fully cured, we can apply sealant to the joint between your tiles and baseboards. If necessary, we’ll also apply a grout sealant.

FAQs About Tile Installation In Lehi, UT


As long as you choose tile meant for flooring and not walls, you shouldn’t encounter any problems. That being said, not everyone has the same budget and maintenance expectations, so it’s important to pick a material that meets your needs.

If durability is a concern, porcelain or ceramic are your best bets. Porcelain is technically more durable and water resistant than ceramic, but ceramic is still a very hardy material and comes at a slightly lower price point. If you’re okay with doing a little more maintenance, natural stone tiles like marble and slate also make good choices.

A word of warning—glass tiles should never be used on floors. However, they can look great on shower walls and backsplashes.


Tile can go in virtually any room in your home or business, but tile installations in Lehi, UT probably shouldn’t be done in bedrooms. The climate is simply not hot enough to warrant this, and if you have concerns about property value, you’ll probably want to choose a material like vinyl plank flooring or carpet to appeal to buyers.

The best places for a tile installation in Lehi, UT are bathrooms, kitchens and mudrooms, as these areas tend to get messier and have a higher moisture content.


Best maintenance practices for tile flooring depends partially on the material, but in general, simply keeping them clean is the most important thing you can do to maintain your floors. The idea is to avoid allowing dirt, dust and debris to scratch up their surface. Vacuuming and washing your floors at least once per week is a must. If using a cleaning product on your floors, check the label to ensure it's safe to use on your tile type.

For stained and discolored grout, use a grout cleaner. Toothbrushes are the perfect tool for applying and scrubbing your grout clean.


You can certainly try, but unless this is a project you’ve done before, we recommend hiring an expert. Getting your tiles to lay evenly, working efficiently around thinset and grout curing times and cutting tile to precisely fit your space can be a big challenge if you don’t have practice with tile installation. To get the job done right the first time, rely on our handyman experts.


Grout sealant isn’t usually strictly necessary, but to ensure your grout lasts a long time before needing repairs and to make the cleaning process easier, it’s generally recommended for a tile installation. Lehi, UT homeowners often choose cement grouts, but if you have a synthetic grout, sealing isn’t necessary. There are two types of grout sealants:

  • Penetrating sealants
  • Membrane-forming sealants

Penetrating sealants go deep within the pores of the grout, while membrane-forming sealants sit on top. For bathrooms, we recommend using a penetrating sealant. Grout sealants can’t be applied immediately following your Lehi tile installation, as the grout must first be fully cured. You should wait at least three weeks before having a grout sealant applied.

Your Local Lehi Tile Repair Service

Lehi tile repair is one of those services that few homeowners know exists. While tile is incredibly durable, especially in comparison to other flooring types like hardwood, chips, cracks, stains, and loose tiles can occur over time. When this happens, many homeowners assume that this damage is something they’ll just have to live with until they’re ready for flooring replacement, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. With the help of a professional Lehi handyman, you can repair many different types of broken tiles.

In addition to cosmetic concerns, damaged tiles can also be a safety risk and may even compromise the integrity of your subfloor. If damage has resulted in an uneven surface, broken tile becomes a tripping hazard, which is especially of concern if you have elderly family members or friends over from time to time. Likewise, a cracked or loose piece will expose the thin set and provide a point of entry for water to seep into the floor beneath the tiles. For bathroom floors, this is especially of concern, as high moisture levels in this room are likely. If enough water is absorbed, your subfloor may begin to develop wood rot and organic growth.

Our talented handyman team can help you avoid these issues and improve the appearance of your tiles in a matter of hours. Save money on replacement by calling us for tile repair in Lehi, UT today. Need more information first? Below, we’ve provided an overview of our Lehi tile repair service, as well as some of the commonly asked questions we receive about the service and tile repair in general.

Lehi Tile Repair: What’s Involved

When you choose us for tile repair in Lehi, UT, the most important thing you’ll receive (after repaired tiles, of course!) is peace of mind. On the day of your service appointment, we’ll arrive at your property on time in a company vehicle and uniform. There are many different types of tools that may be required for your repair, depending on the type of damage that requires fixing. Some of these tools may include:

  • Safety goggles
  • Damp sponge
  • Grout saw or lever
  • Hammer and nailset
  • Glass cutter
  • Cold chisel
  • Putty knife
  • Shop vac
  • Grout float
  • Notched trowel
  • Painter’s tape
  • Spacers

Our service technicians have all the tools they need to get the job done properly, so you won’t have to worry about providing your handyman with any of the equipment they may need. Materials that may be required for your Lehi tile repair include:

  • Grout
  • Thinset
  • Rubbing alcohol or acetone
  • Paint
  • Epoxy
  • Extra tiles

The tools and materials required will vary depending on whether you have a cracked or chipped tile that needs filling, or if the tile is so severely damaged that it needs to be replaced.

Chips and Hairline Cracks

No matter how careful you are, sometimes accidents happen. Tiles are resilient, but if you drop a heavy object, they can easily chip and crack. Fortunately, most minor chips and cracks can be repaired without needing to replace the entire piece. Porcelain and ceramic tiles that are uniform in color are the easiest to repair, but it’s possible to patch materials that are a little more varied in color as well.

Using clear epoxy, we’ll fill the chip or hairline crack. Drying time for epoxy varies according to the specific product used, but once dry, we may add paint to help the patch blend in with the rest of the flooring. For very small cracks and chips, this may not be necessary. We’ll discuss the best course of action with you once we observe the damage. If we do use paint, we’ll also need to apply a sealant on top to ensure the paint does not flake or peel.

Loose and Broken Tiles

Epoxy is a great fix for small chip repair, but if cracks and chips are large and very visible, it won’t effectively disguise the damage. If appearance isn’t your concern and you’re just looking for an option to protect your subfloor until you’re ready to redo your flooring entirely, epoxy may still be a solution. Otherwise, we recommend replacing damaged tiles piecemeal.

Replacing single tiles requires the expertise of our experienced Lehi tile pros to ensure that none of the adjacent tiles are damaged in the process. Ideally, you will have replacement tiles in your basement or garage that are left over from your original installation. This will allow us to replace your damaged pieces with a perfect match. Otherwise, we encourage you to contact the manufacturer of your tile to see whether they are still making your design and can ship a few over. You can also head over to your local hardware store and see if you can find a replacement that may not be a perfect match but won’t stand out.

With your replacement tiles in hand, we’ll get to work removing the damaged tiles. Not all of our handyman professionals will use the same technique to do this, but you can trust that your service technician will use the method that works best for them. Once the old tile is out of the way, a chisel will be used to carefully remove any thin-set (adhesive) or grout that remains, leaving a smooth, clean surface. Using a shop vac, we’ll clean up the area so that it is debris-free.

Laying the new tile follows many of the same steps as tile installation. First, we’ll apply a thin set and place the new tile on top. Once it has fully cured, we’ll apply color-matched grout in the grout joints using a grout float. Excess grout will be scraped off. We will again wait for it to cure the required amount of time before using a damp sponge to smooth the grout lines and clean up the surface of the tile.

Most Lehi tile repairs should not be walked on for 24 hours to ensure that the repair has all the time it needs to fully dry and harden, but your service technician will provide you with any aftercare information you require before leaving you to enjoy your newly repaired tiles.

Lehi Tile Repair FAQs

When Should I Choose Replacement Over Tile Repair?

Although we’re strong supporters of pursuing repair options before opting for replacement, our Lehi tile repair service may not always be the right option for you. Some situations in which you may want to choose tile installation or flooring replacement over tile repair include:

  • Your current flooring isn’t meeting your needs. There is a wide range of flooring options today, all with different pros and cons. Maybe your current flooring is too porous and there’s a different type of tile that would work better for you in your bathroom.
  • You want a change. Perhaps your current tiles just don’t match your interior design style and you’re ready for something new. One of our biggest tips for a bathroom remodel is to pick a style and stick with it.
  • The cost of repair outweighs the cost of replacement. If your tile is very damaged, the time and energy involved in repairing it all may end up costing you more than it would to just start fresh. However, if your home has historic tiles that you wish to preserve, the extra cost may still be worth it.

Our handyman team has the experience to be able to provide you with recommendations for repair or replacement based on cost, your budget, and your project needs. At the end of the day, the decision remains yours, and yours alone, but we’re happy to offer our informed opinion when desired.

How Much Does Tile Repair in Lehi, UT Cost?

While we’d love to provide you with an estimate on your project cost here and now, we would not be able to do so accurately without discussing your project first. Many variables go into determining the cost of tile repair in Lehi, UT, some of which include:

  • Type of damage: Filling in cracks and chips usually takes less time than replacing damaged tiles and as such, will typically cost less.
  • Extent of damage: If you require many tiles to be replaced, this will cost more than filling in a single hairline crack.
  • Cost of materials: We’re just as dependent on supply chain shortages as you are. If demand outweighs supply, suppliers will charge more for products, which could increase the cost of replacement tiles.
  • Cost of labor: Our handyman professionals are experts at what they do because they have the experience to back them up. Our devotion to respect doesn’t apply just to our customers, but to our employees as well. When they feel their work is valued, they’re more motivated to do a great job.

You can rest assured that we are committed to providing project costs that are fair to both our employees and our customers. We’re positive that you will see the value in our services, which is why we offer no-obligation quotes. We don’t need to use shady business practices to convince you to do business with us.

Can I Do Tile Repair on My Own?

Though you can certainly try, we don’t recommend doing tile repair on your own. If you want to try it out, there are several types of tile repair kits available at most hardware stores. With the help of one of these kits, you can test out a DIY repair on a very small chip, and if you feel confident with the result, use it on other chips as well.

If you want a professional result or need to replace entire tiles, we encourage you to contact us about our Lehi tile repair service instead of attempting anything on your own. Though the process may seem easy enough, removing damaged tile without breaking the others can be incredibly challenging. If you’re not careful, you could end up with more repairs on your hands than you had in the first place. And if you only have a few spare tiles on hand, you don’t want to end up needing more repairs than you have replacements for.
