Take a peek at some of our recent tile projects and see how amazing natural stone can enhance the look of your interior and exterior spaces. Here is an example of a typical project process.
We received a call that the homeowners shower was leaking. We scheduled an appointment and stopped out on that scheduled day. When we first went into the bathroom is was apparent something was leaking. The bathroom had been remodeled a few years earlier by another contractor. I decided I needed to see below the shower, so I went into the basement underneath that area. To my amazement, there was water leaking just very close to the fuse box.
Upon further inspection it looked like a lot of rotted was in the same area. I gave the clients my estimate to do the work. After agreeing upon a price, the job was scheduled and we showed up on that day.
Our first day was nothing but demolition. Once the old tub surround and jacuzzi was removed, I could not believe the damage. The exterior wall was beyond wet, it was almost falling down. We discovered the glass block window was installed directly to the studs with no type of water resistant barrier. What was supposed to be just a remodel, now turned into a whole lot more. The glass block had to be removed and replaced with new glass block after the proper water proofing was applied. The entire wall had to be re-supported, as well as the subfloor.
Once all the damage was taken care of I could now get back to prepping the area for the new walk in shower. I installed 1′x2′ Rivers Edge, color walnut from the Tile Shop. I also put in a glass listello band about 3′ in the shower. The curb and window stone were from Castelis Marble and Granite. The main bath floor was also from The Tile Shop, and they were 16″x16″. I also added the same stone to the vanity along with a counter rail cap, and a stone vessel sink. All fixtures including the shower door were Venetian Rubbed Bronze.
