Please help - tile install is supposed to be happening saturday!


Well, I hope it doesn't move by knocking it with a screwdriver. I was thinking more like distinguishing a hollow sound.

I thought you had a real mud-job since you live in this area. We don't do Jersey mud here. But why were the old tiles loose? There's no pics and I can't see it from here, so I can't say. I asked what the people who are installing the new floor thought, and if they had enough experience to know earlier.

Ok - so, not surprisingly I guess, my original guy called me on saturday morning and said he couldn't come - super unprofessional, was a little leery of him anyway - with good reason, apparently. Called a friend of mine who has a friend who does tile professionally, he was busy, so he called another tile guy who totally saved my butt. I had put down redgard on friday night, and he came over this morning, looked it all over, said it looked good, went to work, and I have lovely new tile floor in my bathroom. Thank you guys for your help!!!

Glad it worked for you. Getting someone who knows what they're doing this fast on a Sunday is amazing. Normally you wait 2-6 weeks. It gets grouted when?
