Saltillo before/after door install?

Good morning-Longtime lover of saltillo here, but noobie to the installation process (and this forum!). We have a new construction addition and our contractor has suggested installing door frames after our tile (he has not worked with saltillo before and it's being installed by someone else).

I've read pros & cons for installing floors before door frames and vice versa, however they were referring to either ceramic tile or hardwood. With the delicate soft nature of saltillo, and the inherent unevenness of the surface, it would seem that floor tile install should happen AFTER the door frames. Am I losing my mind?

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance!!

Welcome, Victoria.

Are you talking about interior door frames or exterior door frames with thresholds?

If you're talking interior doors, I would always prefer to tile before any trim or frames are set.

Like Ryan, for interior doors, I’d rather tile first. But for pre-hung exterior doors with thresholds, you’ll install the door first.

Happy weekend! Sorry for the late response---the email notification went to my spam folder.

These are all interior doors. We have some pre-existing frames in an older part of the house that had tile installed around them (why I thought that was the way it was done). The new part of the house will have prehung doors/frames. It seems the consensus is to tile first---Thank you so much for the replies!

Make sure to maintain at least 1/4” gap around the perimeter of the entire tile job wherever it meets any wall/framing.
