There is a trend for larger format tiles which are often fixed in a brick bonded pattern. This can make the installation of movement joints problematic because the joints across the bonded pattern can be very obtrusive. The installer should explain to the client the absolute need for movement joint protection. If this advice is ignored and the client insists on no movement joint protection then the installer should ask for an indemnity against any related problems. It should be noted that this is not always a defence against a claim.
