This from a leading Authority in the home improvement world on tiling a backslash:

Step
10
Grout the Tile Work after Three Hours of Drying Time
Distribute grout across the tile and press it firmly into each joint using a rubber float. Rake off excess diagonally across the tiles. Clean the face of the tile with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently. Polish with a paper towel.

He was proud enough to post that picture - with what seems to be fat 1/4" grout lines in 4x4's, a substance looking suspiciously like mastic on a cardboard box and a cigarette hanging off his lip like he owns the house - in his gallery of sins jobs done.

Was just wondering

Can't exactly tell with the hat on and all, but it looks like he's business up front and party in back.

Probably just got off his other job on the mop.

Caller: Hi, um yes I found you online under tile & waterproof contractors and was wondering if you can tell me if this pan liner was done right.

Ceramictec:

needless to say after I talked to them they want a estimate for a full rip out, waterproofing and tile.
