how much extra tile to order?

For laying tile on a diagonal, an installer told me to order 20% extra, the tile place told me to order 15% extra. Which is correct?

thx, Don

I would say 20% is a bit on the high end. We usually add 5% for regular floors and 15 % for 45 degree ones. But if you're sure you can get the same tile WITH SAME DYE LOT, then get 15% extra and if you run out, you can always pick more up. It's also always good to have a few tiles left over in case you get a hairline crack in your floor years down the road.
