I’m currently building a house. The house is a combination of tile/wood floors. Tile is in all bathrooms (master, 2 full and one half bath) …walls and floor. I’m using a ceramic rectified tile (retail cost is roughly $6/sq ft) . I specifically asked for 1/8 inch grout lines. In theory you could go 1/16 but it’s a bit more tricky…and to be safe I choose 1/8. I run by the house and look at the grout lines….they look big…I check in about 20 spots…sure enough all approx 1/4. way to big for a rectified tile. My project manager tells me his tile guys are good ( lol..Arent’t they all) they were told to use the smallest grout line possible. I stop him and call him out…WRONG…the tile will/can accept 1/16.Then tells me if the grout lines are to small the grout will pop out. Again…WRONG! Lol. End of story, I ask him to stop making excuses and lying, go look at the tile and get your story straight and let’s figure out a solution.

I reminded the project manager enough to where I actually had to ask him if I was bugging him to much about the grout line size, but have nothing written down…only documentation is texts.

This house is under contract…meaning I do not own the house yet. Just a deposit down, plus a few $$K in upgrades.

Is it reasonable of me to expect the floors to be ripped out and re-done? Any other solutions?
