What we do
BATHROOM REMODELING DONE RIGHT
Our bathroom renovation process begins by taking the surface off the old walls, then removing any black mold and water damage. We replace the old plumbing (and bathtub if required). Then we build a waterproof envelope, using either the Schluter or WEDI waterproofing systems, before installing new tile. The price is similar to having a skin placed over the existing tub and surround, but the results are far superior. The problem with a tub surround installation is that it does not address the problems of old, tired plumbing and significant moisture penetration. The old moldy walls are simply covered over.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The average family of four will have over 1,000 showers each year. That amounts to thousands of gallons of water being sprayed onto the walls every year. It only takes a small piece of missing grout, or improperly installed caulking to cause significant damage. Depending on the age of your home, it will likely have ordinary drywall, or perhaps, green board in the walls around the bathtub. Neither of these is waterproof. The grout around the tile is porous, so over time moisture seeps behind the tiles and breeds black mold. When the mold reaches advanced stages, you may notice the bathroom smells musty all the time, and the black mold returns to the caulking, or grout quickly, even after you clean it, Left alone, the walls will become soft, as the wallboard disintegrates.
If you see black mold around the taps, base of the tub, or baseboards, it is time to look at repairing the area around the bathtub. What you can see is likely only the tip of the iceberg!
