I had a contractor install a new Price Pfister Contempra shower/tub faucet handle. There is a gap between the flange and the tile of approximately 1/4 inch where I can see the gasket. It looks to me as though mositure/leaks might get through. At the very least I'd expect some sort of mold to grow in there. Tightenting the flange isn't really an option as it's as tight as can be already.
I suppose one could always run a bead of caulk but that doesn't seem to me to be the correct way to address this issue. It seems as though the flange should be touching the tile not separated by a gap. It doesn't look to me to be a clean professional look but I can't see where the contractor didn't follow the installation. Is this normal?
