    I'm building a garage workshop with a small bathroom. The floor is a concrete slab. The corner of the bathroom has a role in, curbless shower. My wife is interested in either tiling the whole bathroom or none of it at all, and therefore not interested in doing just the shower. The slab...

    Hi all, I am in the early stages (demolition) of my first ever bathroom remodel. I am a fairly new DIY'er, so I have next to no experience with windows.

    Our bathroom is fairly small and has sloped ceiling wall. We installed a skylight in the shower. I’m very confused about where the tile should start and stop. I was planning on tiling up to the sloped part of the wall but my boyfriend says we have to tile the sloped wall because it will rot the...

    Can anyone help me identify this piece? The stem/valve in my shower cartridge is worn so we cannot turn the water on and off with the handle. I have been trying to find a replacement piece but I have not been able too. There are no markings on the cartridge except “MS 12/12/2005” and nothing for...

    Hi I'm looking for some advice on this please. I accidentally bumped into a tile in my ensuite and it fell off. I only slightly touched it. The drywall/plasterboard beging the tile is damaged. It has a dent and a tear in it. Does this mean there could be a leak? Or water has just seeped...

    Looking for some short term solutions to my leaking shower problem. Had a complete shower renovation in 2014.

    I am replacing my tub/shower with a shower-only setup. In shopping on-line for a valve, I find there are lots of different kinds. I need a valve to control the water coming only out of a shower head. There would be no tub faucet. What is the terminology that I should look for when selecting a...

    My tub spout has fell off and now I have spent countless dollars trying to purchase a replacement but none of them work! I have old piping which is probably why none of the universal ones work. If you could help me find a tub spout with diverted that fits this piping, I’m eternally grateful...

    This Symmons shower was installed about two years ago, I'm not sure what model, but whatever "nothing fancy" is when you ask the plumber to replace the shower fixtures. It's on a floor where it doesn't get used all the time, maybe that's relevant. Anyway, this is a shower/tub installation and...

    My shower handle needed replacing so I tried a "fits any" from Home Depot. Seems that isn't going to work. Can't tell the brand name of the old. Tried installing the new one using the adapter that came with it, but the little plastic tabs on the adapter do not reach the ring piece that grabs...

    We finished tiling our shower, but there's a large and variable gap between the drywall and the tile. On one side, the gap is as large as 2 1/8 inches. On the other side, there's a metal corner bead that seems to be in an inconvenient place for my purposes. I'm not sure how best to close...

    Hi All! Is anyone able to tell what is happening to my shower floor? It's porcelain tile that has had this "haze" effect ever since I bought the unit in 2017. Is it salvageable? Am I able to remedy myself? Any help is greatly appreciated!

What are folks finding the cost to be for Bathfitter do a conversion like this? There are a few posts on cost, but the ones I've seen are 10 to...
