Never posted here before but it looks like the right place for my
I am having basically all my floors redone.So far I have already
had the hardwoods installed in the living area and we are now onto the
tile(same contractor but different crew).
I was hoping someone here would look at the pics of my hall bathroom and
give me an opinion on how the inlays were laid out.Personally I think they
are so few that it would have been just as well not to do them at all.The
pattern doesn't carry out in any type of direction etc.Maybe it is just me
but it doesn't look exactly right.This is just my 8x8 hall bath but since
they haven't grouted it yet maybe it is not too late to do something about
it.They are doing the master next so.....
Here is a link to the two pics.I own a pinball restoration company so they
are in my gallery nothing to worry about(i.e not spam or a virus).
The last guy I fired doing tile I caught him smoking the real stuff,
its a good thing I did not let him finish the tile job, many tiles came
completely loose. Maybe yours is a crackheads pattern, he cant count
over 3 .
Thanks guys.Those were basically my thoughts as well but I didn't know if
it was missing something.Doesn't seem like there would be any way this
would be desired.
They did a great job doing the hardwoods so I had confidence but as I
stated it is a different crew for the tile.When they show up to finish it I
will let them know not to bother until make some corrections.
Do you have a bid or contract stating what was to be installed in the
hall bath? If so, remind the contractor what you agreed to. Looks like
they used some leftovers .. not horrible, by any stretch, but certainly
looks "accidental". When the commode is replaced, and a small rug in
front of vanity, it might look just fine.
Be sure that they don't proceed with any more work until the specs are
on paper and signed by both of you. Have you discussed the issue with
the contractor? If so, what comments?
It is a bit odd. Maybe they were thinking that you'd have some mats on
the floor and additional dots (that's what they're called, not inlays)
would be under the mats so they wouldn't be seen - ie, a waste of their
Pulling up the tile to add additional dots could cause more problems.
That depends on what the tile is laid on, what sort of adhesive they
used and how "into it" the tile guys are.
Did you specify or supply the tile dots? If you gave them twenty and
they used three, I'd have them do the floor over.
It redirects me and wants me to log in. Please post a better url.
I wouldn't leave the details of pattern picking up to someone else.
When you buy original art, you are usually stuck with what you get.
