Three steps towards setting up a successful tiling business


Perhaps you’re working in a 9-5 job and fancy a change of career? Or perhaps you already work in the building trade, or construction industry, and would like to move over to concentrate on tiling?

After all, tiling businesses, when set-up and run properly, offer the potential to become hugely successful. Tiling is a DIY task that is much more difficult to complete than other jobs like painting and decorating, therefore, many property owners prefer to get a professional tiler in to complete the job.

No matter what your reason for taking an interest in setting up a tiling business, take a look at the three steps to setting up a successful tiling business below.

  1. Become a trained professional tiler

If you are not trained as a professional tiler, the first thing you’ll need to do in order to start your tiling business is to become trained in tiling from a credible and professional training company.

There are various tiling companies across the company and you should choose the one that will give you the best education, even if that means perhaps travelling a bit further for the duration of the course.

What’s more, there are many different types and lengths of tiling courses around and it is important that you opt for a course that is comprehensive in tiling and sets you up ready for work and to start your own business.

They have a proven track record of training successful tilers who have gone on to run successful businesses, some of which have grown to employ other staff members and cover a larger area.

  1. Make sure you have a strong understanding of how to run a business

Once you have learned how to tile, you’ll need to make sure you understand how to run a business. This includes the financial elements of running a business, income and outgoings, as well as keeping admin records, client service, reviewing your business and more.

If your business becomes well-established, you may want to hire somebody to take care of the administration side of the business, however, when starting-up, you’ll want to ensure that you know how to run a business smartly and effectively in order to make it a success.

  1. Establish a brand and market your tiling company confidently

Before you put your tiling business out there to the wider community, you’ll need to establish what your brand is and how you will market your new company.

A strong brand and marketing campaign will help make your business individually recognised in the area and provide you with more opportunity to grow your business.


Follow the three steps above and you’re on your way to set-up an effective tiling business that has the potential to be extremely profitable.
