    I attached photos of my broken tub/shower diverter, as I am inexperienced with plumbing AND unfamiliar with terminology. I had this shower/tub completely remodeled about fifteen years ago. I do not know the make of the trim. For a few years now, after using the tub it's become increasingly...

    I was hoping to just use a waterproof backer board for my shower. Can’t find wedi, kerdi, hydroblok, or go board anywhere. I guess I’m going to just use cement board and red guard. I thought waterproof foam board would be a lot easier for me, since I’m a small woman. Those cement boards are not...

Our master bath has two doors: one from our bedroom, and another that goes out to the hallway across from the laundry room, and adjacent to the side garage door.

    I remodeling the master bathroom and will be installing cork backed vinyl plank flooring. The existing floor is pretty beat-up from removing the previously installed tile and backer board. I'm thinking I should add 1/4" plywood to the particle board sub floor to insure a smooth surface...

    We are looking to make this tub function as a shower without having to tear up the tile. The problem seems to be that the faucet is deck mounted as opposed to wall mounted. We have found products that convert a wall mounted faucet to a shower, but not for a deck mounted faucet. Anyone know of...

    My best to all. I have a 40 year old 5ft x 5ft bathroom that has been severely neglected. I would highly appreciate it if someone could take some of their valuable time to provide me with a rough estimate - SWAG (semi wild ass guess) or WAG (wild ass guess) on what the labor might be to get...

After all was said and done, I kept smelling a very light but foul odor in the bathroom, but I chalked it up to me being 7 months pregnant and having a super sensitive nose...

    Hey there - We are updating our bathroom, which we think is 1968 original but we don't really know. (No, no asbestos.) We spent a few hours with my husband chipping away tile at one end of the tub and me the other. We're prepared to take this down to the studs and start over again, but we're...
