This video follows along on the journey doing a complete bath remodel. We start with the precision work necessary to remove the existing shower walls while being very careful not to damage the existing ceiling. Since the ceiling is in great condition we want to protect it so we do not increase the scope of work when finishing the new shower renovation later. This allows us to avoid patching and painting the ceiling.

After the demolition in our bathroom remodel is done we begin the process of redoing the plumbing supply and drain and shower valve. In this video we switched from copper to pex and used a pex ready shower valve and crimping pex line system to install.

After the plumbing was in place we moved on to the installation of the tub. By using a tub with reinforced fiberglass spray and plywood with legs on the bottom it made it really easy to install directly on the floor without leveling. This type of tub makes bathroom renovations really easy.

After the tub was securely fastened to the framing we closed the walls using Schluter kerdi board. In this video we show 2 different ways to seal up the penetrations of the shower waterproofing system.

After we waterproof the shower we begin the subway tiling immediately using a laser level to achieve a perfect level line on the bottom row of tile. We demonstrate how to cut and install subway tile using basic tile cutting tools that anyone can afford as well as how to install a glass mosaic tile along with finishing the tile with edging for a clean sharp line.

After the we tile and grout the walls in this bathroom remodel we demonstrate how to finish the bathroom renovation by installing the plumbing fixtures and sealing all the joints and fixtures.

Of course no bathroom renovation is complete without finishing the walls in the area and getting them ready for paint so we show you an industry secret for making this a fast a perfect result without a mess.

And finally since we were installing this new bathtub in an old space we did not have any extra tile for repairs in the event of damage. Sure enough we chipped a tile while resizing the floor tile for the new tub. No worries I show you a quick fix that can save your bacon if you are trying to renovate your bathroom on a budget like this client.

As always feel free to leave comments in the area below about your bathroom renovation or remodel and Yes I do answer all the questions myself. Cheers!
