Do floor tiles leak water? One of my clients was erroneously told that water will seep through tile grout and tiles. Some people may think that either the tile or the grout is porous. Why do people think ceramic countertops leak?

Customers who put blind faith in a large national company may be getting cheated. According to an NBC Home Depot Investigation, some Home Depot contractors have been trained to overcharge their customers for things not even installed!
“I’ve been taught and trained to rip-off customers,” says a former employee for US Home Systems, a nationwide subcontractor that sells refacing jobs for Home Depot. NBC4 spoke with numerous employees of the company.
“You were told to intentionally inflate the estimate,” Grover asked the former employees.
“Correct,” they replied.
“Are you saying thousands of people have been ripped off,” Grover asked.
“Yes,” the insiders replied.
Home Depot must live up to its reputation and not take advantage of its customers. It’s easy to trust a well known name, so it’s important to get second opinions or learn about what’s being done. Price is a factor in choosing your remodeler, and you usually get what you pay for; however, paying for phantom installations is ridiculous — the higher price does not equal a higher quality.
