Bathroom Remodel and Repair
Bathroom remodel and repair projects usually involve installing a bath tub, shower stall or toilet. Adding a vanity or medicine cabinet to the room or laying new tile are also common tasks. The amount of moisture and water in the bathroom guarantees that caulking will be used in almost any bathroom job.
The basic bathroom contains a sink and toilet. A full bathroom includes a bath tub or shower. Bathrooms in modern homes are usually spa-like with soft towels and patterned tile on the floor and in the shower stalls. Some bathrooms include steam showers and other luxurious touches used to create a sanctuary feel. Of course, mildew and leaks will instantly turn even the best mood-lit bathroom into a must-do bathroom remodel.
Caulking is used as glue and a sealant. Tile should have corners caulked to prevent water from seeping across the floor and causing mildew and further damage. Water will find a way through any leaky caulking and create a disaster zone. Used properly, caulking around the bath tub, toilet and shower stall will keep water from leaking under the floor. In all caulking projects, the old caulk should be completely removed and new caulking should be applied. Other improvements to the bathroom may include recessed cabinets, counter tops and shower doors. Be aware of any wall adjustments that may need to occur prior to installing a medicine cabinet or vanity. Moving walls even just a little can be damaging to the home. In addition, keep in mind that shower door repairs can be frustrating and perhaps replacing the entire door is the best option.
A bathroom is typically a very damp room. Dampness and water leakage lead to a variety of problems that are not always visible to the untrained eye.
