So, the guy who we hired to do our tile work for us ended up causing more problems than good. He installed the tile and grouted it. Well it's a long story, but basically my husband paid him for the job before he was 100% done and he did't finish up.. (big mistake on my husbands part). So I scrubbed the haze off and put the threshold things on.. Well my husband and I put the bathroom door back on tonight, we thought we were done. I shut the door and noticed this-(photo attached). The guy tiled too far!! And cut the carpet back apparently. I didn't realize when I put on the threshold thing. What do we do? Is there any way we can fix this?? It's going from our hallway to the main bathroom. I thought the threshold thing was too far out When I was attaching it... .ugh. This whole situation has been a mess and we are beyond stressed out and upset about this. Any ideas?
I really feel your pain.
The tiler was quite incompetent.
Since you have paid him - - -!?!?
I would cut the tile back to under the door and install a wide oak (or marble) threshold.
This would require significant work for you. (or a contractor.)
I suggest that you leave any option which involves the cutting of any tiles and replacing the cut sections with anything until the NEXT time that you re-carpet. (Make sure that you NOW have sufficient replacement tiles [and paint for "re-touching"] to replace ANY tiles which may be damaged and to repair any paint work which may be damaged in this process.)
In the mean time, you could paint the tiles and the "threshold thing" to match the paint work (and carpet).
Or, you could lay a "veneer" of a colour matched thin material on top of these items (Such as an "Oak" wood veneer - appropriately sealed.)
However, any such "veneer job" must be regarded as a compromise, and would require some "maintenance" - as would any paint-job.
Can you put the door on the carpet side of the frame?
You could do this BUT
1. This would be significant work for you (or a contractor) - including refitting hinges and filling, repairing and repainting the space where the previous hinges were PLUS
2. The door would then open outwards.
Is there enough room for this and do you want this?
