People might pay extra for that size opening Jeff, call it a weight loss program and add an up charge.

I normally give cheap retail stores a pass, but I was sitting in a Jiffy Lube the other day and kept staring right at this. It's right in the main walkway.

Jim Comm'n it is a lube shop, anyone else paying attention to that floor....lol Looks like the kinda floor that wud hypnotise you, the come out and say they need to change all this additional stuff.... You reply do what every you want, lube master. You wake up in a haze later like that floor is wondering why you have all an all chrome exhaust now and very little money in your account

Why the pencil strip on that floor?

If it weren't for that pencil strip "detail" it might never have made it in this thread.

Angry

With all the information out there, it's hard to believe so many jobs are being done so poorly (horribly aweful)! The only good thing about it is I continue to have work because of such terrible work as we have seen in the many photos. Attached are a few such jobs I have redone recently. Sadly these were originally done in the past year. The customer unfortunately has to experience all the trouble that comes with it and frankly it kind of ticks me off!

Just think what a craftsman like that could do with real tile.
