expensive mistake

i tiled this fireplace and the tiles have a pattern in them that fits together, i managed to get one upside down and had to remove it, unfortunatly it was one i had cut so i had to buy a replacement, got the invoice today $110 !!!! for 1 tile

Jim.......

When I reference your link I see excellent tile work in a string of "Flickr" pictures.

What I can't find is a picture depicting noticeably patterned tiles, or any possible mistakes that may have involved noticeably patterned tiles.

If there is one specific picture you have in mind, tell us which picture it is and we will attach it directly to this thread.

If, on the other hand, you wish to showcase some rather beautiful work using a number of pictures, select some, tell us which they are and we will attach them directly to this thread and move the thread to our "Professional" forum.

Thanks

Okay Jim

Like i said Jim, I think your work is Great!. But this is just a couple of things that i question. No 5/12202832576. Big Tile. But why the small cut on floor at end of tub?. And no bull nose!. On cove taper grout. And miter (stone softly) on the rest of tub. No 5/11416010595. Shower stall. Whats here?. The back wall matches joint with left hand return, then falls about 3/8" from right hand return. So question is?. What is out of plumb??, something Is!. Just asking Jim.

C'mon...Really?


That second pic John,just a question...Did you put a piece of wood behind the outlet to extend it out so it's flush with the tile? The outlet cover is part on the tile part on the wood. So the question is....why not move the outlet? Just asking John.

rudijohn post some of your "perfect" installations and you will be told that they are.
One of the great things about this site is the great installations and talented people that are here. If you want to be one of them that is not the right first step you should have taken.
