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!

  2. I really like this guy 😉😉😉

  3. I can't watch… he speaks more than work.. tired video

  4. That grunting sound though…

  5. How did you know you had mold behind? I am suspecting my daughter is renting an old apt in NY and is constantly getting sore throat and chest yuck. Not sure the owner would do a thing about it but she can't keep getting sick. Plus they have a child. It is my understanding that those mold kits from Lowes/HD are useless. Thanks,Diana

  6. Thank you Sir for a great detailed video…

  7. How can you tell what a tub is made of before you start a project like this? My tub is original to the house, built in 1969. Would it be steel? Or cast iron? (My last house had a cast iron tub, and that was really expensive to get out. They had to break it up.)

  8. The consideration with the Lepage 2.1 is that it creates a surface that thinset/concrete does not adhere well to (and that sealant may not create a strong enough bond to the Kerdi board). If you are tiling, that loss of strength might cause a section of the tile to come lose.

  9. I have a very similar remodel I want to do in our guest bath. However, I want to keep the tub. Follow same things? Also can I use concrete backing with hydrophobic seal painted on it after hanging (I saw this in another video of yours) vs schluter? Does there need to be a vapor membrane that route? Research I've done shows 6mil? It isn't an exterior wall so I didn't think so. Also, love your channel, I learn SO MUCH!!! It also got my fiancee to let me get a nice laser level 😂

  10. Interesting use of the flux brush to wipe off the extra solder. We like to use a wet paper towel for that here.BTW the main purpose of flux is to keep the copper from oxidizing in the heat (like CO2 on welds).

  11. Renovation in the US is totally different with renovation in EU.
    Here in EU you definitely need a lot more effort to renovate a bathroom

  12. So what is the point of waterproofing every screw and seam to 4 stories below the ocean, but then leaving huge holes where the pipes come through? Is it just me or does that seem like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic?? LMAO

  13. Inspired to start our bathroom with these time saving processes, thank you.

  14. Plumbing is not something you learn in one video. But do encourage people to try it out gives us real Plumbers more work lol

  15. Omg. Thanks a bunch for the vid!

  16. I use pressure sprayers to clean condenser and evaporator coils with coil cleaning solution, it comes in varying degrees of acidity proportional to its effectiveness , the "safe" non acidic coil cleaners do not work well so I always use the foaming type of acidic solution, I knew better about protective eye wear but never wore it until recently, I was on the roof of a 40 foot long motor home that had 4 rooftop units to service, it had a built on ladder so I used it, it was vertical so anything I carried hung straight down, I had a bunch of tools and things in my hands going down the ladder and I saw the bottle was hanging by the spray cord which was plastic and the bottle was about 1/2 full so it had weight in it, I started to go faster down the ladder and I was looking straight downwards when I saw the bottle detach from the cord I was holding, it was weird, it was like slow motion , the jet-stream blasting out the orifice on the pressurized bottle was acting like rocket propulsion or more like a jet boats thrust, the stream of acidic foaming coil solution blasted my eyeball so hard it filled my eyelids and left stretchmarks on my eyelids!
    I could not see well for a week or so but I recovered, I thought it was not going to get any better, I wear glasses now everytime!

  17. The removal of tiled wall isn’t so easy. This stuff is heavy.

  18. you are a master of your trade and your work shows it!

  19. You have got to be the only one who shows the reality of what really goes on!
    I try to explain this to customers…..and to watch your videos…. thanks very much.

  20. THOSE 5$ GLOVES ARE THE SHITTIEST GLOVES EVER!!! THEY ARE ONE SIZE FITS ALL GIANT HANDS AND GUARANTEED TO NOT FEEL A THING EXCEPT YOUR THROBBING HANDS BECAUSE YOU SLIPPED OFF YOUR TOOL AND SMASHED YOUR HAND BECAUSE YOU COULDN'T FEEL ANYTHING!! MY GRANDFATHER WOULD BUY THOSE GLOVES IN BULK AND GIVE THEM TO THE HIRED HELP WHO DIDN'T BRING THEIR OWN GLOVES AND LAUGH AT THEM ALL DAY AS THEY FUCKED UP BECAUSE OF THOSE CHEAP ASS GLOVES!!

  21. what is that grease you used before you soldered?
