This is a good mystery. I'm leaning towards single tiles popping due to the lack of expansion joints. Time will tell.

I bounce a golf ball on the tiles to find tiles that have broken bond.

I say stand up for your money if they owe you but I suspect there is more to this story that you are not telling us. They were pleased when they posted to Angies list, what happened after that??

Unfortunately whoever you hired to regrout did not inform you it would not fix your problem.

You need to tear out your shower and have it properly redone.

By your measurements you should have 3/8 clearance. Unless you are off on the numbers I'd go with afore mentioned stove is not level. Crank up the legs on the left side and see if it will work.

Run your 3x13 bullnose up the edge and cut you diagonals into them.

Nice job btw, diagonal walls are not an easy thing to get right for a DIYer. You must be very patient or drink like a tile guy.

More to think about...will the plumbing trim still finish out correctly?? The shower may have a curtian but the steamer has a door that will no longer fit and they can be expensive to replace.
