Cultered marble tub install

tommarkJune 29, 2013

I hired a contractor to remodel our master bath and this is what I find supporting the cultured marble tub.... 10 - 12 wood wedges around the corner of the base. There is approximately a 1" void between the slab and the base of the tub. Contractor claims the tub installer has been installing tubs for 20 yrs. and knows what he is doing. I disagree. Any thoughts on this?

There are several ways to install a tub, some manufacturers are pretty restrictive, some others allow their tubs to be installed in a couple of different ways.

I'd recommend you go on the manufacturers website and read the installation instructions for your tub.
