Cultured Marble Price Question by biggerpockets.com



My Marble Look Countertops For A Fraction Of The Price | Duration 4 Minutes 58 Seconds Since the shower is existing and not brand new they will want to re-do the shower pan to make sure it wont leak. The tile job you would get from those guys would be exactly what you have now, a shower that is guaranteed to leak & grow mold & start falling apart in less than ten years. Both only charged me their minimum charge because it was a quick-small job for them. I have done a lot of remodels and only about half of the shower pans are even done right so most respected tile/marble installers assume that it will be a problem from the estimate. I have also had to pull marble off the wall that was not installed right. Is there a reason you want to go with something other than fiberglass? There’s a window in the shower – not sure how you could handle that with a fiberglass surround & still get a durable product – leaks from the window sill apparently caused the tile to start falling off. If you had one loose tile, you would pull off the adjacent tiles as well, until you got back to “solid” drywall. Then stick down some tile, grout the next day & hope for the best. Grout isn’t waterproof, so water will be getting behind the tiles eventually. Thanks, but if the tile guy puts in new hardiboard or backer board when he replaces the tiles won’t that solve the water problem? With tile you can actually have the pan done wrong but use epoxy grout impervious to water and have it still not leak (much anyw ay). If your quote was for removal of the tile, repair of the base & installing the new shower, it doesn’t sound too terrible. I hired my own plumber to replace the tub valve, & my trusted drywall guy to replace the drywall. The cultured marble guy was an artist, wobbly walls are the standard here, and making it all look square & straight is why you pay them. They had to break up concrete and move the existing drain/ptrap by 2 inches because the new stall was different dimensions front to back. I think the primary idea is to get a finished product that lasts a long time, so you don’t have to pay for it twice. If you’ve got tiles popping out, the backer is likely drywall. So, assuming there’s drywall behind the tile, the wet area will be larger than just a tile or two. Assuming you hit good solid board before you hit a stud, you could stick in pieces of 1 x2″ to support the drywall patch.
