    At this point I'm not sure. If the flooring company decide to fix it that's fine with me but either way, I'm guessing the tiles aren't salvageable so something else is possible. That industrial stuff looks horrible but is very effective for cleaning. I think we'll avoid anything white, given the laundry fluff that is collecting already...

    Real tiles come with their own set of problems (if not on solid sub floor) but if they're proper floor ones they shouldn't be slippy... We have tiled front steps and they're fine in the rain.

    It’s quite Seiko but without the jazzy dials.

    I had one of those stretchy £6 jobs on mine for a while - looked ok but I missed the bling and heft.

    Yep, the ‘dirt’ is adhesive that hasn’t been cleaned off properly. It was put in two weeks ago!

    @Bobbo it’s clearly a shocking job (FIL is in dispute with the company), I think I’m just not a fan of the fake tile look.

    Is it harder wearing than sheet stuff?

    Tbh that’s the work I expected - we were told 5 days work for one bloke for about 9m2 - maybe longer if the screed needed a longer drying time. He was out of there after 3!

    Your floor looks good though and I get the benefit of LVT over wood or something cheaper if you’re having it patterned and bordered . I’m just annoyed that what we’ve got was vastly expensive, looks cheap and is probably going to have to be ripped out and redone!

    We have just had LVT (partially) fitted in our utility room but the contractors have fucked up and not screeded properly - there are various lumps and dips and tile corners are lifting already. I had nothing to do with the flooring selection or contracting (present from in-laws, who are now furious at the fuckup). At the risk of sounding like an ungrateful oik, I cannot see the point of LVT (at least in the large square tiles pattern we have) @ £50/m2, over a big roll of Lino @ £5/m2. What am I missing? They’re hard, scribed edges look shite, alignment needs to be sub-mm perfect, subfloor needs to be perfect and you don’t even end up with a watertight surface... oh and it just looks like cheap Lino anyway!

    What don’t you like about the triple? I’m considering chopping my CBR600F in for something naked and lairy...

    I also can't program (unless you count smashing bits of VBA together) but it looks like there are three sequential parts to the query - could you add a condition to the second two to ignore any records found in the preceding part(s)?
