Is this bathroom tile work acceptable?
We are in the midst of a total gut of our house. The contractor brought in his "highly experienced" tile installer. He installed glass tile which I had purchased. In my opinion, he butchered the job. The horizontal lines don't match in the corner. The tile was on a mat and there are entire horizontal lines where the bottom tile of one mat rests on top of the top tile of the lower mat. The tile around the tub is resting on the tub with no gap for caulk. The contractor thinks it doesn't look bad. He wants to try replacing the column of mats along the corner so the lines match. He says urethane caulk will seal the tub edge. And he wants to try popping off some individual tiles that are out of alignment and replace them. He has no real answer for the tile-on-tile issue. I think we should start from scratch. I think he should pay to replace the tile, but I'd be willing to share the cost. Am I wrong about the work being unacceptable? About paying for more tile?
