FAQs

Picking the right tiles for your project

Here are some top tips on what to think about when choosing your new tiles:

• What area are you planning to tile?

• What’s your preferred colour scheme?

• Have you thought about the tile size? Extra large tiles can seem unsuitable for small rooms but larger formats in smaller spaces will give you an illusion of a bigger room, with fewer grout lines.

• Have you thought about the finish of your tiles? Do you prefer gloss, matt or natural stone finishes?

• Would you prefer a coordinating or matching style? We offer a wide selection of both, so you can create your perfect look

• How easy to maintain would you like your tiles to be? Ceramic and porcelain tiles are easy to look after and don’t require any special maintenance.

What’s the difference between porcelain and ceramic tiles?

Known as the most durable type of tile, porcelain is harder, denser, tougher and less porous than ceramic. It also has a very low water absorption rate, meaning it's virtually impervious to water damage, even after prolonged exposure.

Tips on how to measure for your new tiles

Step one:

Measure the surface area that needs to be covered. For a rectangular shaped area, measure the length and width in metres and multiply these values together. This will give you the square metre coverage. For an irregular shaped area, try breaking the area into smaller rectangles.

Calculate the area of each rectangle as above and add the values together to calculate the total square metres required. Don’t forget to consider doors, windows and fitted units when calculating areas.

Step two:

We highly recommend adding an additional 10-20% (depending on the size of the tiles, i.e. 20% for larger tiles) to the total area in order to allow for any cuts or breakages that may occur during the installation process. We also recommend that you keep any surplus tiles following the completion of your installation, in case of any accidental damage that may occur in the future.

Step three: Divide the area you need to cover by the square metre coverage of the box of tiles you wish to use. This will give you the number of boxes of tiles required. Our handy tile calculator will help you work out how many boxes of tiles you need.

What does our installation service include?

Our installation service can be used for tiling projects of a minimum 5m² and over.

Your installation quote includes adhesive, plastic trim and standard grout colours, if you'd prefer a non-standard grout colour or alternative trim this will need to be purchased separately.

Prior to your installation, your Wickes-approved installer* will contact you to introduce themselves and arrange a detailed technical survey to check that everything is in order.

Our Installers follow rigorous health and safety guidance during the installation with full public liability insurance.

If you choose to use our waste service, that includes the environmentally-friendly disposal of your old tiles.

*Our Wickes-approved installers are third-party contractors. We vet and approve all installers and their projects prior to their instruction.

How much does installation cost?

The total cost of your tiling project will depend on the size of your space, the product you select, the substrate being tiled on to and if your existing space needs any preparation such as old tiles removed or backing boards. To discuss your project and receive a no obligation quote, complete our contact form.

What happens when my tiles are delivered?

The day before your delivery we or one of our dedicated suppliers will text or call you to confirm an estimated delivery window. You’ll need to be at home to accept the delivery - failed deliveries will delay your installation and could incur additional re-delivery charges.

Ensure you have sufficient space to store your tiles in a dry safe place. Due to the size and packaging of some of our tiles your order may be delivered kerbside on a pallet. Kerbside deliveries will arrive on a pallet and be delivered to kerbside. Whilst every effort will be made to bring the pallet as close as possible to your property, in some cases there may be obstructions (such as steps, gravel paths or uneven driveways) which may mean the pallet will need to be left some distance from your property. Our delivery drivers are not insured to enter your property or unpack your order. Please ensure that you are able to open the pallet and carry the boxes into your property (or have someone available to do so).

You’ll need to check your delivery and report any missing or visibly damaged items within 7 days of receipt. We’d encourage you to check your delivery straight away to ensure you have everything listed on your invoice and there is no obvious damage.

If you need any further assistance, please call us on 0344 892 2721 (Monday - Saturday, 8am - 6pm)
