App. 773, 605 S.E.2d 375 (2004) Summary judgment obtained for the plaintiff in a case seeking payment for tile the defendant alleges was defective, because the tile was installed in a shopping mall and in use, as notice of rejection is not “a rejection of tile already in place.”  “Continued use . . . constitutes reacceptance.”
