Or when he sees good work next to turd work he sees it as slightly better cuz its still just tile to him. I've met guys who don't really get what you're offering when it comes to nicer details. Hopefully he isn't that way.

I've been guilty many a time of grout as bullnose on spa dam top/overflow to pool in So Cal. It's how our company did them.

At a job trying to figure out this leak. Was looking at the tile work and out looks okay for 15 year old job. Solid craftmanship, nothing to amazing when it comes to design, but...
Look at the end of the 1/4 round

Travis, It looks like he had good intentions and on paper all the materials were good, but that soffit really screwed up that bull nose beak placement.

I like the gold strip with tacks between the brown tile and the gray carpet.

Gotta make that threshold POP!!!!

I blame that more on the design than anything. Yes, he could have trimmed the 1/4 round beak a bit to conform but mostly that's on whoever was making design decisions.

Oh but wait. The whole job looked pretty good but there were little things like this. Where's the grout joint on the miter

This was a flip house. Bonus, that it's all tile over vinyl so the door jams are all too high now.

At my favorite chevron convenience store. Need to go back to get pics of more accents. This sliver is set at an angle like a piece of cove lol. Overall, isn’t shabby for commercial; it’s just surprising to me because it’s such a fresh install from the end of 2019.

Alignment and Grout

These shower tiles were out of alignment, and the grout was not sealed properly. Poor work!
