Window Sill over tub in Master Bath? Contractor says No.
Hi, all. We have recently finished our build and I noticed that we do not have a window sill (we paid an upgrade fee to have them added to the house as they do not come standard) in the master bathroom.
It's not a small window, approximately 35 inches by 50. When I asked our builder, he said they don't put the wood trim in there due to the potential water/mold issue.
The window sill is at least 15 inches above the top of the tub. It is currently just painted drywall (won't moisture potentially cause the paint to raise over time and chip off, anyway?) Should they have included one? I looked at photos on Houzz of master bathrooms and a lot of them have window sills. There is tile leading all the way up to the window, so I'm wondering if they're just skipping out on doing it, or if there's an actual concern for mold over time.
