Anthony, the tile industry standard, unless the manufacturer recommends otherwise, is to allow a 24 hour cure of the bonding mortar before installing grout. That's for a cementitious grout. Manufacturers of other types of grout may have longer cure requirements.

And that's considering optimum environmental conditions in the work area.

It would certainly be a good idea for you to find out the answers to the questions about the bonding mortar and grout.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Rapid set mortars tend to be expensive and more of a pain to use, but they do allow rapid completion of the job. WIthout knowing what was used, can't say whether his timeline is rational or not.

CX I will do that

This guy is a licenced contractor and he did a nice job . when he gave me the estimate he told me two days 1 day for tile and the next day for grout. I can understand not wanting to come back if you dont have to . I am glad I could check with you folks for reassurance
Thank you

There are a lot of "licensed" plumbers out there who don't know how to install a shower receptor liner with a proper pre-slope, too, Anthony. And a lot of building inspectors who don't even know it's required. I wouldn't recommend you rely upon his license to ensure he's doing the tile installation properly.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Plumbing code almost universally everywhere requires the shower waterproofing to be sloped to the drain. That's why they usually require flood testing the LINER, as it is the waterproofing, not anything that is applied on top of it. That also means that care must be taken to PRESERVE that liner when placing the tile, especially over the curb, where way too many people screw on cement board, piercing the liner and nullifying the original flood test that may have passed. Way too many tiled showers fail, giving them a bad name. There are numerous cataloged ways to build a successful shower. It's not rocket science, but it is VERY detail oriented and skipping a detail can make it fail.
