Don't you love to see a new shower installation. And upgrades! Well, it just doesn't get better than upgrading that shower.
Take an old shower, with old tile, and boom! Make it new!
Such was the case here. The house had been vacant for some time, so the shower had not been used. But it works!
Nothing better than an adjustable shower height!
Professionally done, professional looking, well, professional all around.
Well, until you look behind.
And underneath wasn't any better!
It was the underneath that got me upstairs to investigate the installation!
It was a mess, had been a mess and keep in mind, had not been used for some time!
It was a shower gone wild!
We found rot.
We found mold.
We found damaged insulation.
We found problems!
Fortunately we were able to see behind because frankly, from the bathroom side, the job looked pretty good.
I could tell there was a problem from underneath, but still, it was a good thing we could get behind.
My recommendation: when you see a new installation, check it out as completely as possible. What you see is often less than what you get!
