Shower wall tile lippage - done and redone, still problems!!

6 years ago

We are having problems with tile lippage with our 8x24 tiles in our bathroom (new build)...the 2 attached pics are over a month apart, after the first was ripped out to the studs and done again and even by a different crew. What is going on? Is our tile junky and warped or is it in the installation? (Dalitle purchased at Home Depot) After the first installation I read how we might need to change to 1/3 overlap pattern instead of 1/2 and mentioned it to my contractor to let me know if it was going to be a problem again and we could alter the design....but I'm not seeing an improvement really. Suggestions?? Would changing the pattern make it better or worse? Should I just live with it?
