Help! Can see trowel marks through glass tile!!
I'm so pissed. Just got home from a work trip. While I was gone I hired a tile contractor to install ceramic tile in my tub area and glass mosaic tile on the sink wall. I supplied all the tile. Contractor came with many good references which I checked. He also came personally recommended by 2 other contractors I have used for years.
The glass tile is Dal Tile City Light St Moritz color. I gave the contractor the instruction sheet that came with the tile a couple of weeks before he started on the job.
Well I got home and the glass tile wall is horrible. We can see the trowel marks through the tile. Everywhere I look online says trowel marks should be knocked down when installing this type of tile. Ceramic tile looks great.
But now what to do about glass tile? It is not grouted yet. Tile cost $1600. Labor for glass tile was $400. Even if he waives his fee for the labor I'm still out a ton of money on the glass tile and I have a wall that looks horrible.
Help! Need suggestions on next course of action.
