moldy grout


I think a standard Schluter shower kit is around $550 and that gives you the polystyrene tray, the drain and the kerdi for the walls. OK that may be 50% pricier than iof you made the pan yourself, bought the drain, the membrane or something like RedGuard - but it saves you time...and time is the one thing I sell. So, if you take the costs and amortise them over 10 or 20 years, it is worth it.

The trouble with jobs like that is a quick clean-and-seal can quickly become a headache replacement of fallen tiles, so we build that charge into our quotes. Hence $500 starting point.

OK gotcha. I presume that's on the floor under the membrane...
