Uneven Walls: When you are having stone tile placed most people think that a room is squared off and the walls are even and leveled out. The problem is that the walls that are in your home should but up to the tile to keep a gap from forming. The gap can be a small sliver that will not close up meaning you will have a gap. The biggest problem is that you might have a gap in one spot but the gap closes off in another. The reason is that the walls should be level but they are not. You cannot use the wall as a guide to layout a perfectly squared out tile.
