bathroom wall tiles uneven

6 years ago


The contractor has tiled and grouted our bathroom wall. The tiles we are using are Porcelanosa 12" x 35", so they are somewhat large.

The problem is, the tiles are not looking perfectly flush. They seemed ok before grouting, but after - the unevenness seems to show more for some reason, maybe because of the shadowing. They will try to remedy with further grouting, and their excuse is the tiles are not perfectly the same width. I have a hard time believing this. The other excuse is, since the tiles are so large, it's hard to make them perfectly flush.

When I run my fingers between the tiles, there are definite steps. Small, but still noticeable, if you check out the pics.

Is this an acceptable amount of variance? Any ideas for alleviating the situation?

Thank you.
