Welcome, Kevin.

What Jim said.

I would eliminate both those contractors from contention on the job. Neither appears to be at all knowledgeable of the requirements of either the ceramic tile industry or the product manufacturer's installation instructions. Not a good sign.

I'm a bit confused about what you intend to install. In one of your drawings you indicate "old tile floor" and in another you indicate "current floor slate." Both those floors now exist, or is the "current" floor the one you intend to create?

I can't find anywhere you indicate the spacing of your floor joists. If they are on 16" centers you barely meet the requirements for a ceramic tile installation, but if the slate is your intended tile you've got a good bit of work to do.

My opinion; worth price charged.
