Question

re-tiling shower


What is a reasonable price for the labour in taking the tiles off an existing shower approximately 4ft by 3ft and applying new tile including the ceiling and floor and how long should that take in hours?

You should ask a local contractor. You aren't likely to get a straight and accurate answer here to a question like that.

^ Yeah, those danged tile guys are complete BSers!


Actually - seriously - the OP question really can't be answered without a LOT more information. There are just too many variables.

Any tile situation where you can take tiles off a wall and have an intact substrate is not a good tile job and it should all come down.
Why are you removing some of the tiles off the wall?
Who told you this could be successfully done?

It cost my wife aprox. $1,050, due to my labor charge to her was $75/hr. for 14 hours, when I gutted our bath.

You charged your wife $75/hour to redo your bath? Or is that what I would have come out to?

What do you think? It took me six weeks to complete, which came out around 24 hours of labor, for total of $1,800. She does not want to know how much it will cost her for the Kitchen, Dining remodel & new flooring and carpet.

You better watch out, or she may send you a bill if she cooks, cleans, and/or does laundry.

That is a problem, due to I do all of the cooking, my son cleans, along with I and as for laundry, it is a shared responsibility. The only good thing is, she makes more than I do with her job, so we break even.
