  1. Carpentry
    Hi there, I am wondering/hoping if anybody has advice on how I could go about framing the area over the silver backing (back wall) for a regular old alcove tub? Space is precious to fit the tub I purchased, but it would fit if I can only protrude from the back wall, and the tub opening side, by...

    Hi all, I’m new to this site but I have no clue where else to look for help on the install of a new steam generator for a new master bath shower. I ordered a 6Kw steam generator from amazon, and while plumbing it in was a breeze, my issue was more with the electrical wiring, when I first wired...

    Hello, I have a 29 year old aquaglass jetted bath spa that has touch control (like a touch lamp) to turn on/off. Spa pump will not turn on anymore. When I last tried to use it, the pump came on for a few seconds when I turned on the main power switch, but did not touch the on/off control...
  4. Tiling, ceramics, marble
    In order to retile my bathroom floor, I've ripped everything down to the subfloor, which is made of 3/4" wood planks, not plywood. I would like for my bathroom floor to be as even as possible with the wood floors that run throughout my house, so I have about 3/4" to work with. I don't feel...
  5. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    I am in the planning phase of basement bathroom remodel. My house was built in 2006, and the previous owner completed the basement himself. His work was subpar, particularly in the basement bathroom (ugly tastes, and shoddy craftsmanship). Anyway, the shower pan appears to be poured concrete. I...
  6. Insulation
    Hi all, I just tore out my old shower/bath, and behind the tub was insulation all rolled up all around the tub. As well in the pockets around the shower. I pulled them and trashed them. My question is: Should I put up new insulation around the shower/bath? I am using greenboard for the walls...

    when running just the bathtub everything works perfectly. but when the shower is activated there is quite a lot of water squirting from the back of the bathtub faucet, despite the shower seemingly working fine. i removed the spout for the bathtub and didnt notice any cracks or defaults, there...

    Hi I need to remove a Moen Adler style faucet handle. I believe that the cartridge is bad/blocked since I can't get any water go come out of the spigot. As a side note, if anyone has any thoughts about that, I would be happy to listen. However, my main problem right now is that I cannot remove...

    I recently renovated by bathroom and included a marble cubby hole (18" high, 12" wide, 6" deep). I would like to spilt the space by putting in a glass divider to act as a shelf. What is the best way to mount the glass shelf into the marble? I would like to avoid any type of drilling. Thanks...
  10. Kitchen & Bath Remodeling
    My husband and I are looking at houses and we've found one we love but it needs some renovations...the bad kind...kitchen and bath. We can afford to do one right away and the kitchen wins. The bathroom isn't actually all that bad. Floor is vinyl, but brand new. Sink and cabinet also new...
  11. Plumbing
    Hi, I'm renovating an old bathroom (tore out the leaky fixtures, sistered old weak joists, replaced subfloor, etc.) and need to find a new bathtub. It's a normal 5 foot by 30 inch space (could possibly use a 32 inch wide tub instead, but 30 inch would be preferable). I'm not looking for...
  12. Electrical
    In my newly bought house, the bathroom ventilation fan/light is making a grinding noise and shudders every once in a while. I opened it up enough to determine that it is the fan motor, still drawing air, but making the noise and shuddering occasionally. A new one from Home Depot costs $129. Is...

    I'm in the process of purchasing my first home, which has a wooden shower stall. The walls are wood (and have considerable water stains, but according to the inspector no mold or decay), with tile and grout on the horizontal surface surrounding the bathtub. I plan to rip it all out and...

    I am not really sure where else to post this question I have. So here is my situation.... I just moved into a 1 bedroom with my girlfriend and the bedroom has a small 3 fixture bath. The bath has an exterior wall and no attic above. I want to install a Bath Exhaust Fan into the wall (window...
  15. Painting
    Let me just start by saying that I pulled a really bonehead move. We just remodeled our bathroom, and replaced the drywall on two walls. When I repainted, I forgot to prime those walls. When I pulled my tape, as you might guess, the paint started peeling with it. So: Now what? So far there are...

    Hello people, new to here and looking for some advice to help my curiosity. I have an idea of re-doing my bathroom, with the size of it I keep the tub with shower head look or go with a standing shower. My main concern is the resale value of this kind of change. If you have your thoughts, let...
  17. Plumbing
    Hi, Yesterday the shower screen smashed and the glass all shattered into the bath. I managed to vacuum the stuff in the bath but some/a lot must have gone down the drain as the water is not going down anymore. The annoying thing is that i cannot remove the drain cover (the bit that the plug...
