We are looking to update a 40 year old bathroom. All things considered with late 60's decor it could be worse. We want to redo everthing. It is a fairly small 3/4 bath and we are not looking to break the bank on anything too high end. Just nice quality.
The big question in my mind is budget and the shower floor. What would you roughly estimate and what hidden suprises lurk beneath the surface of the tile? Do I dare redo a shower floor on my own our should I hire a contractor? I consider myself fairly handy but do not want to worry about water intrusion down the road.
Do I just start breaking out the floor with a hammer and see what lies beneath?
