I posted about a tile job [here recently](https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeImprovement/comments/cgimxe/tile_underlayment_contractor_quote/)… Now the tiles in, it’s somewhat less than ideal. I have [some pictures here](https://imgur.com/a/9qUTsdx).
The transition to the wood floor is bad and there are a lot of lips in tiles. I’ve taken pics of a few, they’re higher than the thickness of a quarter in a lot of spots. There are also crooked cuts around some of teh cabinets (forgot to get pics of these).
Contractor tells me the lippage is fine, that it’s a pretty good tile install. The transition he admits isn’t great, blames the wood floor (although I had a perfectly straight/neat/clean transition there before). He wants to put a strip of wood over the top of the transition and shoe molding around teh cabinets. The shoe molding I’d be fine with, but I don’t want a raise wood strip where I didn’t have one before. I also don’t want tile lips poking up everywhere…
So, I have a tile job I’m not super happy with. Do these pics look ok or am I being reasonable in thinking this isn’t good enough?
My question is what now? Contractor insists it’s all fine, doesn’t want to do anything. Should I get another tile professional in to quote me on actually doing it flat/level with clean transitions? Do I withhold some payment from the contractor? Not sure how best to deal with this, appreciate any advice.
