If you are doing time and material I wouldn’t cap it. That’s the trade off for them, otherwise bid accordingly and make sure you are covered. Stuff like that could run a week over no problem.

They make 3/4” porcelain for this which I assume that’s what you are using. We did a pool deck with some 24x24 and mud set it. Cutting it was rough, took 8-10 minutes to do a cut on the wet saw.
