Good Example of a failing shower due to incorrect installation and having to "do it over" from a previously incorrect

installation
  • Signs of shower failure, before we took the tile back
  • Well - after we got the curb up, we had nails through the top of the curb and the membrane was cut in the corners
  • The curb was completely rotted away the floor was rotted through and mold had started to grow
  • We removed the damage, installed a new sub deck and went back with the WEDI system sub paneling...
  • Nice tile with a good accent strip was chosen by the customer
  • Finshed off and tied together nicely... finished project, happy customer and a good lesson. Make sure you are choosing reputable contractors and checking their work during the process is a good habit.

    Pat....10 K is not cheap....And I feel sorry for you that its not working. Unfortunately these types of repairs can not be fixed with the wave of a magic wand...most will require getting to the root of the problem. a.k..a down to the subfloor / stud

    @Pat C; Generally speaking, by the 30-something reply, we are generally way off the original topic.....as is the case here.

    I recommend you start a new thread by asking a new question from the home page. Try and provide as much information as you

    Very Nice Job! It's amazing how such a beautiful tile job can hide the ugliest things. I see it all the time and sure do appreciate seeing people such as yourself "making it right". One combination I like to use for new shower installations is: Schluter

    I had a contractor put new tile on old sheetrock...not even blue board...leaked like a sieve between the shower and tub ...rotted the joists...I sincerely hope that contract rots in hell. I certainly did my best online to warn people.

    Why don't you folks go after these contractors to force them to do the right thing? That is what I would do. Get an attorney to have the contractor pay to have it fixed.
