Compensation for installing slate tile

5 years ago
last modified: 5 years ago

We had a friend who installed some slate tile on one of our stair landings, he still has to install the second one . Each landing is 25 sq ft. He was on site for 3 days, first day a few hours when he removed the existing tile from the landing and installed durock, second day it was a full day when he installed the tile, third day a few hours when he replaced one tile that was damaged, grouted and installed durock on the second landing. He is not a high end installer ( the tile that he replaced came out slightly higher than the rest, and the grout has efflorescence ), but we have to pay him, so I was wondering what is the current rate for slate installation in Chicago area?
