Hello all,

I've recently gotten a contractor to do my washroom and he was installing tiles today, from what i've observed he has spot dabbed tiles onto the wall, I asked him if its fine and he said that the kerdi membrane behind the wall will not allow any water past it, the reason he's doing spot dabbing is due to the wall being extremely un even, as the house is 40+ years old. The floor base he did with kerdi membrane, then thin set and now he has added the mosaic tiles properly with a notched trowel and back buttered floor. My only concern is that will the wall tiles stay? could there be a chance that they fall off or even worse I get water damage behind the tiles and wall? please let me know, thanks.

P.S as far as I know he is not using the premix stuff only the bags of schluter all set cement.
