Sometimes it all starts with a simple email asking for help. Not long ago, the Esox offices received an email from a couple looking to get their bathroom floor tiled. After setting up a time to meet, they told him that someone had already tiled their shower, so they only needed the floor done. At first glance, it seemed simple enough but after looking at the work, it was apparent that some steps had been missed. Uneven tile with a poor fit as well as excessive grout were just some of the telltale signs, the customers were victims of an amateur. After showing them pictures of an Esox completed shower and describing the benefits of how a professional job would benefit them, they decided they wanted to start over. The renovation required removing everything from the bathroom down to the floor joist, even the plumbing was moved to accommodate a larger tub. Of course, the walls and floor were re-tiled to professional standards. Upon completion, the bathroom was level, waterproofed, and a stunning addition to their home.
A leaking shower may seem like a minor fix, but water damage can quickly turn any job into something significant. One such example of this is a recent call out for what the homeowner thought was “just” a leaky shower. After a thorough inspection of the area, though, severe water damage was discovered on the ceiling below the shower. The homeowners agreed that the old shower had to be totally removed to repair all the rot that had formed behind it. Once they had cleared away all of the old building materials, the Esox team could see the significant amount of mold that had developed on the subfloor, and in some areas, the wood was so rotten they could see into the basement. The wet insulation and all of the rotten subfloors, including the wooden studs that were affected were replaced. The shower was completely rebuilt using the Esox recommended Schluter waterproofing system. The homeowner was then able to choose tiles that suited their home and tastes. The result was not only a dry shower but a gorgeous bathroom.
