Due to tight schedules, many times the tile installer is called to get on the job quickly and to complete the work in a short period of time. While this is not unusual, precautions must be taken to protect the surroundings. When the project involves installing tile in a bathroom, whether it is new construction or a remodeling project, it may be the responsibility of the conscientious tile professional to protect the fixtures, especially the bath tub.
The first step in this process is to closely inspect the tub for manufacturing defects, chips and scratches beforework is started. If work is begun without notifying the owner of any of the above conditions, the installer may be responsible for the cost of repairing or possibly replacing the tub. Make this review process a “must do” for each project.
