Kitchen Floor Tile/Grout Lines ... Not Happy :(

9 years ago

Here we have newly installed 20" porcelain tile (rectified) 45 degree with requested 1/8" grout lines (spacers were used). I'm not feeling good about the workmanship. There are varied grout lines - 1/8 to 1/4 - corners slightly off and a bit of lippage. It was installed directly to the slab after removing vinyl. There was no floor prep other than scraping old vinyl glue away. The question is, was I asking too much using a large format rectified tile. Should I be happy? I purposely stayed away from travertine but still wanted that look. Just looking for opinions. I am having the grout colored a lighter shade next week and hope that will help too. Thx!
