Bruce, perhaps I didn't state my point very clearly.
If the floor meets L/360 it could flex up to 1" and
the tile and grout should be ok. If it does not
meet L/360 and flexes more that 1" there could
be a problem. Obviously, we can't tell from here whether
the defect is in design or execution. I guess I'd be
supprised of individual joists were flexing, after
all, they are 16" oc and have 1-1/8 of plywood between
them; but, I've been supprised before :-). Any way, it's
an interesting problem. I hope we will here more about
