Sunken Tile :(


It's understandable that you are outraged at the contractor---

Let's get over the blame game and move to the solution to the tile problem---

Hammerlane asked for a wide shot showing more of the area--I could use one ,too.

How handy are you? Are you willing to hire a real tile expert to fix this?

That patch job was done so incorrectly that I do not suggest you use the same workers to fix this---

Rule #1 when dealing with any job being done, Never ever pay in full until it's done and approved!

I've had a few that held back money for some really stupid reasons but this is not one of them.

Can not pay you because my husband bought my daughter a new car without telling me.
Lady owed me thousands and would not pay because one of my guys had taken the time to sand and paint a rusted steel closit pole.
We replaced two broken outlet covers instead of one, a .78 cent item so they held back $300.00 intil I took it off the bill.

We are just honest and grateful people but now I feel like "another job". Thank you all and I apologize if this "strand" isn't correct. I am new to this site.

@ Oh MIKE, we are not very handy BUT will do what we have to do considering we paid for this to be flawless and if they "meaning the GC's on the job" saw that their might be problem we would have been more than eager to get it done correctlyly

I think you want to sue them for a new floor now.

There is still a chance that those tiles can be lifted. Didn't I see some cracked grout lines?

But I'm not sure I would touch anything. Just file against them. If it is something like a 12x12 room, they should be able to take up all the tile and replace with another tile for less than $1500.

I guess you'll need a figure for damages, so you might want to get some estimates first.

There should be an expansion space between the tile and the wall or base board. Looks like that floor was done wrong the first time too.
