How many tiles are cracking?we just built a home. been in for 6 months. basement has tile in bathroom and hall. tile is cracking. who is responsible? contractor, tile co. or us. still have 6 month on the one yr. thanks
Experimenting With Chemicals 101?you will be responsible in a result
most likely it is a crack in foundation, and if it happed after tile was installed then who is fault is that??? -- Company which build the house? ok - inspections... no one take responsibilities court? does it worth it??
Simple solution - talk to contractor who did it - most of them will agree to come an fix a few tiles - couple hours of work. If the problem is big and there a lot of EXPENSIVE tiles needs to be replaced - talk to contractor who did it.
Not wanting to hijack....but what is the 'tyical' isolation product?Installing tile on poured concrete basement floors without using an isolation product these days is always risky business. This should have been discussed long before any tile was installed. An opportunity for the owner to upgrade to an isolation membrane should have been offered early out. If isolation membranes were offered and declined then too bad so sad for the homeowner. Sounds like a typical basement floor installation to me.
Ron is correct! Schluter DITRA is probably the best known with the best record of performance. There are several others. A company called Blanke has one, I think it is named Uni-mat, Problem there is they have been in several litigation's for years over their product. I have a couple of other samples around here somewhere also but the names escape me.Not wanting to hijack....but what is the 'tyical' isolation product?
