I must jump in here!
Dear friends...there are very few circumstances in the entire country where a ceramic tile installation would cost $15 per square foot. Typically and depending on what part of the country you are in, a ceramic floor tile installation costs under $7 per square foot but there can be many variables. That $7 would include the cost of the tile underlayment, the cost of the setting materials, and the cost of the labor to install all of the above including the tile.
AVAIRE on the other hand requires none of the above and the labor to install it is about $3 per square foot or less. Here again depending on the configuration there could be some slight variables.
Please please be very careful doing business with someone that is quoting you $15 or more per square foot to install traditional ceramic tile. To install AVAIRE and charge THAT PRICE is ridiculous beyond belief. Especially if YOU are buying the tile.
