Shower Tile chipped in new bathroom addition

4 years ago

Hi there. My bathroom addition was completed 7 months ago. About 3 months in, I noticed that a tile had chipped. It is super high up in a corner, and there was no impact to it. I've attached a picture. As you can see, the chip is spreading to crack across the grout. Any thoughts on what could have caused this? Is there an issue with the installation of the corner that can be fixed by replacing the tile, or could this be a larger issue for the installation? Knowing my contractor, he will claim that the tile is defective (I purchased the tile separately) and try to charge me for any repairs. I am still under warranty for workmanship. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
