    For starters, I can’t post pics on my tile thread. Also, isn’t looking at bad tile like looking at porn with ugly women ? Just painful . Sorry, but I’m on here to BE THE PRO, Not see who isn’t ….I know, flawed tile is the topic …will look for some.



    @andyg
    how are you posting pics? On the PC it is easier to put the photos in Photobucket or Flickr and copy and paste the share link in your post.

    If this was directed at me, I’m sorry you feel that way. This thread was jacked a while back and the content doesn’t follow the title at all. I respect the quality of your work immensely, but it doesn’t belong with the crappy stuff we like to occasionally laugh about on his thread.

    Maybe junky rather than flawed. Demoed this today – soft-body wall tile installed on the floor in a bathroom, with mastic. Lots of water under the tiles.

    Yikes, that is definitely not good. Welcome to BTP.

    Is that due to the flange? Looks like a small crack on the right? Welcome to BTP by the way

    Was the water underneath due to the flange? Maybe – it’s a little hard to figure out what’s due to what in this place. And thanks for the welcomes – I’ve been a member for a while, but not active at all.

    I recognize that forehead!

    I hate the leaky flange jobs. The HO sat on a toilet that rocked like a seesaw for years and then can’t understand why it’s going to cost extra because I have to remove the entire subfloor that is now thoroughly saturated with their poop water.

    Guys , thanks . I ‘ll tell anyone ….I have a real passion to help others . I want to see guys succeed, be professional, make money and enjoy what they do. This work can be challenging , mentally and physically, but also very satisfying .

    I was so fortunate to have a good teacher and mentor ..who I still talk to after nearly 2 decades . I want to do for others what he did for me . I ll be glad to help anyone , anytime .

    I started setting tile about 20 years ago….I was scared someone would ask me to do more than 100 feet in one room. Then I got heavy into wet area work, because I knew it was being done poorly …then customers kept asking me to just handle the whole bath remodel …which I liked ..because I knew a job set up by me for me would go well…and from there I started doing additions with baths and carry a homebuilders license. It’s been a pretty good ride, but its been a lot of work . I’m just now going home .

    Thanks again guys, and all the best to you ….you should all be proud of what you do …and being on this sight is commendable …because we can all learn from each other.

    Andy….I’m maybe about to take you up on this. Respect your guidance. I’m about to embark on a travel with a bathroom job for myself that I’ve never done. Besides, I’m sure we all like to see you posting more. 😉

    I’ll be following that thread, too, @Doobie. I have a full bathroom tearout and rebuild on the agenda as well.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Yikes that looks like a mess. I imagine someone can come up with a better system than the traditional wax ring, but I guess it would be very troublesome to convert old houses and keep two mounting systems going for new toilet models.

    Success with baths is pretty much in the planning and set up.

    Very true. A bath remodel is a lot of different jobs/trades in a compact area – electrical, plumbing, drywall, paint, tile, trim carpentry…If you don’t have a good plan of attack every transition from one trade to the next is a stumbling block that slows you down.
