Expansion joints Question

We just had a new floor installed, 12" tile in a staggerred pattern. Anyway tiler left joints between the walls and the tile but then his grouter filled them all in with grout. Should I get a Dremel and remove the grout from at least 1 side? The grout hasn't been sealed yet. I will try to send pics..

Welcome back, Deb.

No, you should not. What you should do is invite your tile installer to send his grout guy back to do just that.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Exactly what CX said. Folks getting paid to do skilled work shouldn't do things that could potentially compromise the job.
