My 10-day old grout is cracking!!?!?
SO my contractor ripped out my OSB subfloor and installed (if I am remembering correctly) 1/2" plywood then 3/8" plywood. Then used ECB membrane before setting the tiles. I'm not exactly sure what kind of adhesives were used, but I'm none too pleased with the install. Even though the porcelain 12x18 tiles are textured, we don't feel that they should be uneven in their placement. Yes, I'm being extremely picky but they are not fully level. I mentioned it to him, and he did offer to rip "the one or two that you think are terrible" out, but I sort of ignored it because we were arguing about my feeling doubly-billed by over $1200.
A week later, the "wet" grout is for sure dry and not uniform in color. It has also started cracking in 3-5 different places - around 3 tiles that are not close to each other. Could it be because of the extreme cold we've had and these tiles being close to the door that currently has no door jamb? (I'm in WI, temps outside are negatives). ?? DO I need to tell him to rip it out and start over? Any words of wisdom to help me from freaking out because I think he considers us a "lost cause" and isn't going to do his best work anymore??
