The majority of the overall tile and stone budget usually comes from its installation cost, especially for vertical surfaces (walls, etc.). Both material and labor estimates are derived from SF calculations and vary depending on material type, workability, and waste factors based on the chosen installation pattern. Additional preparation and leveling may be required based on visual inspection performed post-demolition and are currently excluded. A “straight-lay” installation with minimal grout lines is the standard Tellus assumption. For shower door and interior glass, Tellus typically estimates per pane of glass and assumes an upgraded tempered 1/2” pane thickness. Chrome glass hardware is included at shower locations. Tellus contracts all tile and stone material as a standard allowance.
