Courtesy RenosGroup The owners put in a beautiful new backsplash, but the installation sank its appeal. Project manager Keith Melanson with RenosGroup says this a prime example of lack of experience: Glass tile nippers would have made the perfect cut and not left this unsightly gap with messy cement.
