How much was the thinset built up?

Dave, would a flexible mortar ie 3-1 etc have yielded better results if building up of mortar is the culprit.

Think you'll need to be a bit more specific about what "3-1 etc" might be, Jeff.

My phone has a mind of own. Should have read Tec superflex or similar.

I generally float anything over a 1/4 or deeper with custom float over wonder board and kerdi over that. Which is half the time since there isnt any straight lumber available anymore.

I haven't seen that before unless it was a untapped joint that was just waterproofed.

Have seen it numerous times in soft bisque rectangle tile. Long ends shrink and pull against the middle. My numerous may be more than most because people only call me for problems.

Wouldn't it be nice Dave if someone would call you and say" I want to pay your way to come look how good my installer did".

Hell, Eric, I think Dave would think it was nice if people actually paid him to come look at the terrible jobs he sees!

It took way too long but it's pretty much done.

I appreciate all of the help and advice!

Looks good, Brad.

Remodel jobs take whatever time passes between when they start 'till someone thinks they're finished. No such thing as too long.

The exception for me would be those jobs that involve white tiles and black grout. Those never get started.

The wall grout is actually Mapei Pearl Gray. I was considering black but decided to go with something a bit more subtle.

But your point it understood and I had that conversation with the tile setter at the onset. I knew dark grout on white tile would be a disaster if the tile was not laid flat, true and consistent with no lippage.

That turned out to be the least of my issues

Looks great, Brad, very tidy. Plenty of wonderful details to looks at but still not at all busy looking.

Well done.
