    Metal trim jutting out at corner, creating sharp point.

    Coming to the end of a bathroom fit, just inspected some trim fitted at a corner yesterday and where 2 trims meet it juts out 5mm creating a sharp point. Doesn't seem correct to me. What is the solution when I speak to them next week?

    This is really Poor setting out isn't it?

    Am I right in thinking this setting out is awful? He's also fitted plasterboard to the dry areas of the bathroom, I insisted in him putting Hardiebacker around the shower/bath and I tanked it. But we're not happy with it at all. The cuts are obviously bad. Thanks.

    Freaking Out! Grout lines darkening

    I thought I did everything right--my 13 inch tiles came down and stopped 1/8" away from the tray, I filled it in with mad adhesive, and sealed the grout 3x.
