Tile Layers are also called Tile Setters. They install ceramic or stone tile that you see in showers and tubs, on kitchen countertops, floors, stairs, building exteriors and many other areas. Many times they install a thick mortar base of sand, cement and lime to create a flat or curved surface for the tile installation. They may work in residential construction or on large commercial projects. Work is both indoors and outdoors and may involve scaffolding.

A Tile Finisher works together with a Tile Layer to create installation of ceramic or stone tile. The Tile Finisher fills in joints, cleans and polishes finished surfaces, which may include showers, tubs, countertops, floors, stairs, building exteriors, ceilings and others. They may also perform finish caulking. The Tile Finisher does most of the setting up of materials at the job and cleans up afterwards. They mix all mortars, by machine or by hand mixing using a mixing hoe. Tile Finishing is very active work and is often strenuous. Work is both indoors and outdoors and may involve scaffolding.
