after the fourth day of tiling. Didn't really run into any real issues yet. Had a little issue with leveling. I guess the ledger board was off a little bit so I had to adjust the tiles a bit on the way up, but that should be able to be corrected now as the chair rail so I think we will be OK.

No real questions at this point. Just semi smooth sailing.

another contractor left a mess

So I had a contractor come in and make a mess of my floor. I'm putting VLP down on the floor, not tile. He put self leveler on OSB to level the floor out a bit. Didn't put primer or metal lath on like the directions call for. Was working it like mortar- it was not runny at all, in fact was like dry mortar, didn't mix it well as when he dumped it out of the bucket it was half dry- literally dry.

So do I have to rip the OSB up or is there any saving the floor? Can I grind the leveling compound down? BTW it is NOT flat. I don't care about level, but it is nowhere flat. The edges are about 1/4 drop and he has bits of compound all over the place. Like he never floated anything in his life. Or is really bad at it..

Of course he's not responding now and hasn't shown up for three days so I think he's gone.

Thanks for any help
