Laying 16x16 porcelain tile in my dining room & kitchen. I am using 2 different dye lots, which I am ok with because the rep at Lowes told me the only difference in dye lots could be some slight variations in coloring.
Started laying the tiles today and after running 5 rows 12 foot long I am finding that the differnt dye lots are actually 1/8 of an inch different all the way around.
Is this normal? Should the rep at Lowes known this and informed me of this possibility?
OK. Seems now that I have to pop the tiles up and remove the thinset before I can start all over using just the one size of tile.
I have the tiles popped up and am at the removing thinset step in this process, is there an easy(er) way to get this chore finished.
I was thinking my soniccrafter with a rigid scraper blade. Any thoughts?!?
The soniccrafter should be about the easiest. You may want to give a go with just a flat scraper blade by hand too. At least the fresh thinset should still be a little soft.
