horrible tile job. need advice please.

6 years ago
Hi there! This is my first time asking a question here. We are remodeling an apartment in NYC. I got several high bids and one ridiculously low bid from my super, and of course we went with the low bid. I totally believe you get what you pay for, so I was prepared for some sub-par stuff.

In fact, I’m pretty happy with most of the work so far. We ended up being able to get so much more for our budget than we had planned (a new 1/2 bath, washer dryer, exposed beams, built in bunk beds). The one area that’s glaringly bad is the wall tile in the main bathroom. I asked him several times to fix it, and this is what we are left with. At this point I just want to be done and have him exit the work site.

My question is this - is it possible to have an experienced tile person come in and re tile the bathroom without damaging the tub, medicine cabinet, etc? Would it all have to be redone or is there a way to just the completely awful and keep the sort of awful?

Thank you in advance!
