Shower stall tile leak -- retro questions
I need some advice on which professional does what job -- and the order that the work needs to take place.
I'd very much like to salvage the tile above the bench, and it's not because of the cost -- the thought of weeks of demolition and isn't appealing.
Here's a video of the shower
Here are the facts:
The tiles under the shower stall bench/seat are crumbling.
I'm guessing the shower stall was built when the house was -- in the early 40s. The shower pan appears to have been replaced before we bought the house, about 28 years ago. We're in southern California, so I'm fairly certain the pan was hot mopped.
The bottom of the bench looks like it wasn't completely tiled.
I don't know how much water has seeped into the wall.
Some questions below -- hoping for answers, and any other advice very welcome.
1. How can we determine if entire shower must be rebuilt?
2. Can we have tile removed from bench and below, have a new hot mop pan and drain installed, and then retiled? If yes, who does tile removal?
3. Does tile person or hot mop person replace drain, or do we need a plumber?
