Need help - bathroom remodeling


Hi.

I need to specify in the contract with my GC the exact guidelines for the bathroom remodel. I have already found myself in a position where the cost of the project has increased due to "misunderstandings" or them opting for lower cost solutions, such as using stucco instead of cement boards to waterproof the bathroom walls around the tub.

Can someone please send me the how to's on preparing the walls, use of greenwall, use of cement board, how to create a soffit, waterproofing with membrane, etc -- looking for what I need to specify in the agreement on how the job is suppose to be done.

Thank you!!!

You are asking someone to write a book just for you. The TCNA (Tile Council of North America) will sell you a specification book used for writing contract documents.

I could write it for you but there is a fee for that when I do it for anyone.

there won't be any misunderstandings if its all in writing. if he's pro, he'll know all the details right down to how many screws he's going to use.

don't be afraid to take your time and read/amend the contract.

I would buy the book Bud talks about since he is useing stucco as a waterproof material it shows he dont know what hes doing and cement board is not a water proof material either thats what the membrain is for.Your asking for alot of info that I dont think anyone has the time to sit down and write a couple hundred pages on how it should be done right.You could keep going through this site and you will find all the answers you need then it just your time.In any one area I an sure we could answer your questions but to be specific on all the details of how to build a bath would just take way to long.Oh any Bud is the head master of tile so if hes says get the book ..well get the book
