We’ve just moved overseas and bought a house that needed a thorough House Renovation. We’ve been working on it for 5 months and we have been living in short term rentals since November. We had purchased 60 x 60 porcelain tiles to be laid throughout the house. We have laid all but one room (Master Bedroom) at this point but upon cleaning of the floor preparing for us to move in with a diluted water and white vinegar solution it exposed there are bubbles on the surface of some of the tiles and a pitting/crater occurring around these bubbles. I have contacted the local tile shop who sold them to us and they’ve contacted the manufacturer who has said the tiles were not baked correctly at time of manufacture so they are faulty. At this point we have laid approx 2000 sq ft + skirtings of this tile. They have offered to replace the tile and pay for it to be laid but this means further disruption for at least a month if not much longer as we had moved furniture into house ready to live in the property. OR they have offered to send someone to lift the individual faulty tiles and then provide a 2 year warranty on the floor. The tile shop does not have a huge variety, so I know they do not have anything in stock right now that I would particularly want so I would either have to order in or wait for new stock if to change. I asked for a refund, and they have said they are not willing to give me one. I just wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience or any advise they can offer. This is causing me huge amounts of anxiety as I really just want to sleep in my own bed. I look forward to hearing any advise you can offer.
