Bill V, Mongo--Can I extend an existing tile floor by adding tile
My handy man flopped on my flip house. We didn't pass the credit card test. We are off on some by almost a 16th inch. The tile is 18x18 and I think it has at least 1/16th warp variance. We pulled the tile today and are going to start over. The first install, he was trying for 1/16th inch grout lines. Should we move up to 3/16ths? I am thinking an 8th may be risky.
He did not use self leveling compound. If he came up with less than 1/16th lippage, does that mean the slab is flat enough to do it with an 8th or 3/8ths line?
Reading prior threads, I think that the thin set may have shrunk.
