is this tile estimate high?

10x7 ft room (70 square ft)I already took up the linoleum which was hard to do and there is some linoleum backing on most of the floor I cant get up that they will removethey will lay something on the floor that will prevent the tile from crackinggluing down the tile and grouting and sealing itI am in the southgrand total $1000.00 labor labor and materials is $15.00 a square ft


it is cheap if they are lifting the toilet and vanity then replacing them, the sub floor should be glued and screwed down, does this cover the adhesive, sub floor, grout and tile? if you are supplying and reinstalling fixtures then it should be around the $500 price range
That sounds about right for hiring it done.
Tile stores often have phone numbers of tile setters who buy from them. I respectfully suggest you shouldn't pay $1000 to have $50 of tile installed -- if you want to pay $14 per foot for installation, I'd go for $6 - 8 per foot tile. Generally 2/3 of the bid should be labor, 1/3 material. In tile work, labor includes prep, mastic, grout, and cleanup -- everything but the tile itself.
Seriously bid is way too high especially if you did some of the work yourself...the paper you lay on the floor is cheap and tile is not that pricey for such a small area..even a master tile layer wont cost that much it can be done in under a day of work by one guy
Seems a little excessive, $900 for laying 70 tiles, even taking away the cost of the plywood, hopefully they'll lay in order to level surface,Or if Concrete, The use of a Self-levelling Compound is a Must ! *Ask if they will use a self-levelling compound to 'seal ' the floor of course, make it a level surface on which to lay the tiles. If corners are cut, (no pun intended) Then there is a good chance of the grout cracking in the not too distant future, and so allowing water to ingress itself under the tile-adhesive and the tile itself, leading to a Very expensive mistake. (Hth). .
