Unfortunately, I have not recieved a confirmation of account email. I checked 'spam' and that was empty, so did a resend confirmation email, and nothing arrived. Tricky one this .Did you reply to original email when confirming acc?
Your profile says we’re still awaiting email confirmation.
It is quite poor to be honest, mainly due to the wrong sized trim being used for the tiles and poor prep work, ie getting the walls flat and level before tiling.Been having bathroom installed. Have posted some photos of the standard of tiling, where I have notice some problems. Wavy tiles, spacing seems to be different from one tile to another, trim doesn't seem flush and the walls are not flat with tiles bulging.
I’ve changed it to valid manually, see if there are any differences. Maybe you signed up right in middle of change over.

Thanks @Boggs - Response from fitter is 'plastering wouldn't of achieved anything in the room apart from extend the job'.It is quite poor to be honest, mainly due to the wrong sized trim being used for the tiles and poor prep work, ie getting the walls flat and level before tiling.
The cutting of tiles into the trim could be neater.
It’s not a total disaster, and could be fairly easily rectified.
Have a chat with your installer, highlight your issues and see what they are willing to do to rectify.
sorry but did you say to the fitter that it needed plastering before hand or did the fitter say this to you
It was written in the contract that walls had to be plastered. Did the ceiling but not the walls. I said it was written in the job spec and forms part of the contract, but he said they did not need doing. He tiled over part blown skim, skim which was not blown and old adhesive. Sprayed with bonding first.sorry but did you say to the fitter that it needed plastering before hand or did the fitter say this to you
He knows Andy. I gave him a test area to redo to see how his work panned out and it was still poor. I could not honestly expect to believe he is capable of fixing the whole room if he cannot fix a small area which needed doing. It was all I could do to see how he handles a small area before I would consider letting him loose on the rest of it. So he is pretty much kicked off. Inspectors will be visiting to see his work and I am sure things will be rectified in the right way.Unfortunately your a victim of the 5 P's poor preparation pi** poor performance.
Have you told him your concerns regarding the workmanship & requested that he rectify them
When the guys come around from the tiling company keep it on point . Dont start saying he was ten minutes late one day or he didnt shave before he cane to work ir he is a messy worker it just dilutes the fact you are not happy with the work . Keep it on the tiling everything else doesn't matter .Yes. He is a subbie.
