Many contractors and tilers disregard the sewer access covers in people’s yards and just tile right over. Yes, that’s right. If you ever have a sewage backup and need quick access — you won’t. Instead of popping off the cover, putting in the rods and getting the job done you’ll need to tear up your beautiful patio to find the cover. That will cost you a lot of money, a lot of time, and a lot of agony.
Don’t put yourself in that position. Don’t rely on the contractor. Keep your eyes open and make sure the job is done right.
