Waterproofing is NOT a given. A minority of dedicated "tile guys" install waterproofing. Most think cement board is waterproof and nothing additional is needed. And almost no "jack of all trades" install waterproofing.

Not always...but most jobs, even inferior ones, can last more than a year before leaking is apparent.

Bottom line: you need to make sure to research what each installer has on their written proposal. If it's not written, don't count on anything. But this forum has a dedicated group of folks highly trained and skilled in this trade who are willing to share info with you. You can ask us as many questions as you like. Show us the proposals and we'll comment on anything you like.
