Before..... Notice the "bandaged fix"
Carl and Dh taking off the tiles.
Cutting out the walls.
The icky part!
Drying the wall out.
Sealed walls... That stuff stinks!
New insulation and new wall board.
Dh doing what he does best! Taping!
Trying to keep the worst of it out of the tub.
Bubbles in the mud. I had to point them out. Trust me, they didn't stay there!
Just drying out.
Primed and drying.
The practice run with the new surround.
The glue had to dry a long time. We aren't risking water damage again!
Dh masking off to paint the walls.
Tada! New walls, new paint.
All fixed and everything washed and all put back together.
The moral? If you have tile, fix it right away. And then DO NOT HAVE TILE. Actually I don't mind tile, I hate grout! If I could have huge sheets of slate or stone and caulking in the corners only it might be ok. I just do not like cleaning grout.
I hope you have a blessed week.
