thanks, these are classic and it's good for homeowners to see these
and see what they will get if they hire a cheap unqualified tile guy.

Post #59 - Tirerite - I didn't have a choice. When I started the floor, there wasn't even a door.
was there a door opening framed? The center of the jamb is approximately 1/2" in on the stud, on the side that the door will swing in on...learned that the hard way myself years ago...down with doorway cuts LOL, (if at all possible)

I liked this new crack isolation method. Why didn't I think of this? Just think how much money I'd save.

This bathroom was already laid when I started a wood floor. I explained to the customer that this was not an acceptable installation. I gave them a quote to tile the rest of the project (kitchen, breakfast, laundry room), but they decided to stick with the original installer.

I especially enjoyed watching the installers walk over the freshly laid tile as they walked in and out of the room.
