I was called to this bathroom remodel
project because the homeowner was
unhappy with the way the tile
installation was turning out by the
handyman he hired.

Unfortunately we had to remove all the
tile, wall board and shower pan in
order to correct the installation and
BATH REMODEL SHOWER INSTALLATION REDO
The bathroom remodel pictures with the arrows are pointing to some of the many
flaws with this bathroom tile job. Many of the tile edges at the shower corner, shower
curb and drain are sharp edges and or finished without using any trim tile.
The shower floor tile installation was over the existing shower floor. Look closely at the
shower drain and you will see what I am talking about. The drain and shower pan were
never replaced so the tile remodeling contractor built an unusually high shower curb
about 9 inches in height.
The new bathroom remodel tile installation
which our tile installers set in a brick
pattern is a 12x12 limestone for the
shower walls. We installed the same glass
tile but widened the tile design and used

The bathroom tile flooring is a 18x18
limestone set in a diagonal pattern with
glass tile inserts. The shower floor was
tiled in a travertine mini Versailles pattern

The bathroom remodeling project was
stopped at about the midway point.
Instead of trying to work with the
remodel job that had already been
done we decided that the best course
was to remove the tile installation all

This was important since the tile
installer/remodeling contractor failed to
install a new shower pan and drain.
There was tile lippage throughout the tile
flooring and shower. With so many problems
in this bath remodel it was best to start all
over. New plumbing and shower drain was
installed for the new shower pan liner.
