Lippage depends upon the flatness of the substrate, the flatness of the tile, the layout of the tiles, and the ability of the installer, Karen. There can be a lot or there can be none, depending...

Jeff, the tile industry standards call for a flexible sealant (and in your case for sure a backer rod) in those joints. That there are those of us out here who have grouted lots of them should not...
