Ripping out old bath- sheetrock + tile = mold
We are gutting both upstairs bathrooms in a 12 year old house, and when we pulled back the tile on one, there was just plain sheetrock behind. And mold. Mind you, we've lived in this house for 10 years, and we have only used that bathroom MAYBE five times, as our children are young and always shower downstairs in our room. I have contacted the original builder's warranty department to see what, if anything, they will do if the original work was done incorrectly. My guess is that they will say that it was done correctly then, but I don't necessarily want to take their word for it. They aren't known for going out of their way to help their former customers. I won't name names, but it rhymes with Smavid Smeekly. Does anyone know what the code for tiling baths was in Texas around that time???
