The tub in the master bath is curved in the front and the tile guy usually cuts the 12" tiles to make the curve. I had to complain about how sharp all the cut tiles were etc, and then they let me use those 2x2 tiles for that area after a call to the VP. All the builder would say is, 'We've been doing that for years." Yeah, but that's not good enough for me. lol
Yep you HAVE to check their work, but if you hired a general contractor/builder that would be their job to do that for you, but even if I would have hired one I would still check up on them

I did my own tile and I'm not sure how they can cut tiles to be curved all tile saws are just like table saws, you can't cut curves on them...
