    Wall and Floor Tiling Job in

    I just had some tiles put into my small WC and the tiles are uneven, poorly cut, unevenly grouted, and look especially bad around the toilet. I have a little bit of left over tile and I am wondering what it would take to fix the area around the toilet or if it would be better to take it all out and start over again. I told the builder I am not happy and basically all I got was an excuse that tiles are difficult to cut.

    @Andy Allen@Andy Allen - as long as you leave spare tiles for when the new Wc and pedestal are required.

    I always remove the WC, however in this situation it is irrelevant. The ‘tiler’ would’ve made a Pigs ear of it regardless.

    So as soon as I came home to see this job I ran upstairs to the other bathroom and told the builder to stop. Some of these he had already glued but the tiles cut along the border again look terrible! What’s the likelihood of another tiler actually wanting to take on rectifying this job? I don’t want anything further glued or grouted which would make this worse !! : ((

    This surely must be his first time tiling.

    I can see grey circles under the tiles in one picture.
    Has he laid these straight on the old vinyl floor?

    These photos are actually quite funny, sorry, I know the situation isn't.

    I just can't begin to wrap my head around what makes somebody think "durr - this is OK, so I'm going to carry on like this..."

    It's all in need of complete rip out and re do.
