Carol, sorry to hear about your problem.
I am not a tile expert but can feel your pain over poor workmanship practices that cost a lot of money. I should have my tile guy read this thread as I can't seem to get him to make sure the tile doesn't touch the walls.

Can I also add a few questions here?
What is undercutting of the door jambs? My guy is undercutting the casings but not the jambs? then he sets the tile close or withing 1/4" to the jambs and grouts it in... What is the preferred method?
What about up against cabinets under the toe kick.. how important is clearance here and grout or not?
If new tile is going into a 10-15 year old house is the chance of major expansion/contraction tile tenting problems diminished over new construction?
