Grout & Wall Failure
New Tub Surround Installed

Before After
Can this bathroom be re-grouted?

Complete tearout needed due to deteriorated walls behind the tile, a leaking valve, tiles ready to fall off due to water saturation and water ants behind the walls

The homeowner was hoping to have us re-grout this tub surround. Upon inspection,
we found deteriorated walls behind the tile, a leaking valve, tiles ready to fall off due to 
water saturation and water ants behind the walls.  This became more of an expense for the 
homeowner as the tub surround had to be torn out, backerboard and new tile installed.

Tear-out complete. Studs and surrounding
areas had to be sprayed with mildew 
removing chemicals. A fan was placed in
the room for 24 hours to help dry the walls.

Nail heads and backerboard joints are sealed 
with setting adhesive to prevent water 
penetration.
