  1. Kstoh, Thanks for checking. I confirm it is granite 60 x 60. The tiler refused to lay unless we agreed to accept the gap. This is frustrating. The reno has stopped because of the tiles. We went to another supplier last saturday. The cuts are better. But many tiles have scratches on it. I thought granite would not get scratches easily. So now waiting to do a dry lay with the supplier. The salesperson said the gap should be 1 to 2 mm.
  2. Thanks for the reply. I have rejected 3 batches of tiles because the tiler said it is impossible to lay all the tiles with small gaps and the contractor wanted me to accept the fact that some parts would have gaps of 5 mm. Because of this issue, the renovation works has stopped. We are going to source for new tiles. But I am worried that we may not be able to find. The tiler will go together this time. Hopefully the problem will be solved. The tiles look squarish. For the 2nd and 3rd batches, we lay a sample of 4 to 6 tiles. It looks fine with 4 tiles but with 6 together, one tile just could not align with the rest. There is always a bigger gap.
  3. I am renovating my resale flat, using granite as the floor tiles. My contractor is telling me that the tiles are not squarish enough to have small grout. I am expected to see grouts of up to 5 mm which I read that for granite tiles, the grout is supposed to be abt 2mm. Initially, he suggested to cut the tiles but he didn't do so. Instead he sourced for another batch of tiles which turned out to be the same. I need advices. If I accept the 5 mm grout, will there be any problems due to it in the finished product?
