That’s impressive either way. Either insanely great tile cutting skills, or great PhotoShop skills. Kudos for either.

Nice shower

Couldn't find the worst tile job thread. Haven't been here in a while, but needed to share this. Had a good laugh.

Bad tiling jobs

I have been tiling for over two dacades now, here in US and accross the ocean. Ran into the most craziest tile jobs ever. For those of us that dont know, fixing bad tile jobs is a million dollar industry. About 20 years ago I thought bad tiling jobs are just a US thing, but I was wrong. It happenes everywhere. Bad tiling jobs has no borders. Question is: why so many bad jobs out there? Well, that's a totally different story. It is all related to cheap labor. Hiring the wrong guy for a better price.
These pictures were taken back in 2016 in one of my restoration jobs, where the main contractor and their granite countertop subcontractor could not see the light. They hired me to fix their mess to save their reputation. The tiles were fixed without the need to take not one tile out.

Bad tiling jobs

Here's another bad tile job that I was hired to fix. Customers often hire the wrong guy for a better price. I call it cheap labor. Plain and simple!

Bad tiling jobs

Here's another job repair I have done some years ago. Tiles were installed onto newspaper, see pictures. Another example of hiring the wrong guy, something builders, GC, homeowners don't get.

Florentin, how does one get into the traveling tile guy? I've always thought it would be cool to have that as an option to mix things up.
