Tub surround removal


I have to remove the surround due to suspected water damage. I am not too familiar with the instalation of these, so bear with me. I can tell you that it was a middle of the road pricewise, 5 piece surround and was just installed a year and a half ago. I did not install it, but I was there while it was being installed. It was put in using liquid nails adheasive to bare drywall.

What are my chances of removing it and being able to re use it? When I demod the bathroom before the remodel, the old one (probably 15 years old by the way it was discolored) just broke apart where it was glued.

Tub surround removal


If I have to buy a new one thats cool, I had budgeted for it. I just wanted to find out if it was possible to get one off without damaging it. The reason being is that when we picked it out it was a discontinued style and was one of the last ones, so I don't think we can get the same one anymore.
