We had our bathroom done in February 2018. The tilers weren't experienced in encaustics (builder thought tiles were ceramic), they had the following issues.
- grout gap was 5mm instead of 2mm for encaustics.
- they used builders sand/cement for grout instead of grout
As a result, the grout is wearing away quite quickly.
This is something the builder will need to rectify as it's only been 15 months. That said, I am going to organise a couple of quotes and solutions so the builder can pay, rather than getting the same tilers back which I have no faith in.
It will be a pain for them as they'll have to re caulk around the silicone, and take off the floating vanity - disconnect taps etc.
I'd love some advice from any tilers here - the tile supply company said using a misty grey colour was fine as it;s light and the tiles were pre sealed before installation.
