shower tile stays wet up to 24 hours

I'm not a tile person and I may be on the wrong forum. My problem is my shower. My shower tile can stay wet up to 24 hours. I have had tile showers before, they usually dry up within an hour or two. My builder claims it isn't a problem. They tell me that I have a Kerdi system. I was getting some white build up in one area. (looked like calcium) they came back and re-caulked the seams. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We'll need some more info, like exactly what products and materials were used. Pics of the current issue and of the install while it was being built would be helpful.

Do you have a shower door, do you live in humid climate? How is it wet? Wet look? Water in grout lines? Were there cracks before they recaulked? Recaulked where? I'm not a tile pro but these are questions i had.

Do you keep the shower door closed after using it? If so, that will keep it from drying out. You might need more ventilation in this bathroom.
