New shower

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Before and after pics of our shower project

This is a before pic of the back wall and the shower head wall

Best shot I could get trying to show the whole shower before

John working on the tearout of the tile and floorpan

A look at the damage - hole in back wall and floor around the drain

Amazing how that shower was installed-they put the tile over paneling without any
cement backer. No wonder the walls were buckling!

The new swanstone shower pan

John installing the cement backerboard

Backerboard all installed and new floorpan

Start of tile installation

Before grout is installed

Grout on tile on left - no grout on the right
See the difference

The finished shower!!!!

Sorry so many of the pics are sideways-I had changed them in my computer but they still came out how they originally were in the camera! Hope you can get a decent look.

    This was a good job John is truly a tile man. I have seen much worse jobs from tile guys for sure. I did not even see any small issues as most tile jobs have unless the tiler is very precise. emoticon on a nice shower!

    What an AWESOME job John has done!!! Is he for hire? Ken is trying to decide whether to remodel our bathroom or just buy a new house with two bathrooms. We'll see which one happens first.

    Nice pics!!! Nice shower. Can't get over how they put it on the paneling in the first place??? Oh I's called cutting corners and the customer won't know about it for years down the road when the walls start to buckle..........HELLO????

    Whew! What a mess there had been, and John has done a beautiful job of making it beautiful (not to mention fixing the defects). Thank you for sharing the pics, and I didn't mind tilting my head. emoticon

    I really like the black and white. You can decorate with so many different colors.
